The majority of us must have seen the 1995 debut of the first Bad Boys movie, starring Martin Lawrence and Will Smith, in which Smith's character drives about in a black Porsche 911.
The movie vehicle, which was finished in black and with a black leather interior, belonged to Michael Bay, who sold it to director Pat Murphy. In 2005, the present owner purchased it after that. The 911 was bought back after being sold to the Matthew Drendel collection in 2008.
The stunning black 911 Turbo has received multiple honors since it was featured in the film Bad Boys, including first prize at the 2016 Jay Peak Concours d'Elegance, 2015 French Lick Porsche Parade Restoration, and 2014 Pinehurst Concours d'Elegance.
The vehicle is a 911 Turbo 3.6 from the 964 generation, which was only made for the 1993 and 1994 model years and of which fewer than 350 were first sold in the United States. The 3.6-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine in this generation of the 911 Turbo was paired with a five-speed manual transmission to drive the vehicle's rear wheels.
Mecum is in charge of finding the 911 a new residence, and they have put it up for auction in Kissimmee. No estimated selling price was provided, but given its significance as a symbol and a movie automobile, we estimate that it sold for between $300,000 and $500,000.
