After busy debate on how the auto, which was actually built 10 years before Porsche AG was formed, should be classified, clarification was reached with an anticipated sale price of $20 million, per the auction house. But a current glimpse at the auctioneer's website after Saturday's much-hyped event shows a "still for sale" notice, the result of what Jalopnik calls a "weird and unsatisfying ending".
In an article by Bloomberg, the auctioneer reportedly started the bidding at $30 million. There have certainly been instances of pre-meditated chaos, such as when Bansky's Girl With Balloon memorably shredded itself in front of a shocked audience after having being purchased for $1.4 million. The next bid was $14 million, but the screen showed $40 million. "It has been passed around for years, and no one wants it".
A standing-room-only crowd was on hand to see if the silver, tear-drop-shaped coupe, the only surviving auto driven by Ferdinand Porsche, would surpass sales estimates of $23 million at the Monterey Conference Center. The company said it was an "unfortunate misunderstanding amplified by excitement in the room".
Realizing the error, Dutch auctioneer Maarten ten Holder, announced "I'm saying 17, not 70".

Porsche also designed the KdF-Wagen, commissioned by Hitler as the people's auto, which became famous after the war as the Volkswagen Beetle.
"Without the Type 64, there would be no Porsche 356, no 550, no 911", RM Sotheby's Car Specialist Marcus Görig says.
"This is Porsche's origin story, the vehicle that birthed the company's legend, and it offers collectors what is likely an unrepeatable opportunity to sit in the seat of Ferdinand and Ferry Porsche".
The Type 64 auction ended a few minutes later, after people ceased bidding on the vehicle, which was still below its reserve price. The Type 64 was fitted with streamlined aluminium body panels and a 32-hp flat-four. Sotheby's acquired an ownership interest in RM Auctions, which specializes in vintage cars, in early 2015. However, only one of these cars survived World War II, which Ferry later used as his personal vehicle.
