Paul Walker († 40) was a car lover not only in the action series “Fast & Furious”.
Another piece from his legendary private collection is now being auctioned off: his Porsche 911 Turbo.
Hamburg - This November marks the ninth anniversary of the death of actor Paul Walker, who is best known for his role in the action series "Fast & Furious".
Walker plays Brian, an undercover cop who breaks into the illegal street racing scene.
Walker was also a big car enthusiast in his private life.
After his death in 2013, it was revealed that he maintained a notable car collection alongside his friend Roger Rodas, the racer who was behind the wheel in their fatal accident.
Among them were selected rarities such as a BMW M1 AHG, several Ferraris, various Saleen S7 and a Shelby GT500.

Pieces from the collection have been auctioned again and again in recent years.
Mostly for a good cause and in aid of Walker's foundation, which is managed by his daughter Meadow.
In 2020, for example, 21 cars, including seven BMW M3s, went under the hammer and brought in around 2.33 million US dollars for the "Paul Walker Foundation".
The foundation awards college scholarships to prospective marine biologists.
This 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo comes from the estate of "Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker and is now up for auction.
Hamburg-based auction house Kickdown is now auctioning off another car from Walker's legendary collection - a red 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3. The car is in good condition despite its age.
"Overall grade 2+", attests Valentin Kremer, Managing Director and COO of Kickdown GmbH.
In addition, the life of the classic car is well documented.
Porsche 911 Turbo valued at €160,000 by Paul Walker
Built in 1987, the Porsche originally ran in the USA, then came to the Netherlands in 2013 before finally ending up in Germany.
According to the report, the entire car is in the original paint except for the rear bumper and the right fender.
There should be no damage such as scratches or dents on the Turbo 3.3.
Interested parties can enter the auction at any time via the auction house's website.
However, the dream of this red Porsche 911 does not come cheap.
In 2017, the vehicle was valued at a replacement value of 160,000 euros.
There are always auctions of well-known cars.
A Porsche from the film "Bad Boys" was recently auctioned for the incredible sum of 1.3 million US dollars.
