Ferry Porsche’s Jaguar is up for auction (yes, we said Ferry Porsche’s Jaguar)
This car comes with an odd story, a fascinating mystery. Not the model, which is relatively ordinary, but the questions behind its original purchase. A 1976 Jaguar XJ6 formally owned by Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche is up for auction. You read that correctly: Ferry Porsche drove a Jag.
Beyond the obvious question (why a Jaguar?), what made the XJ6 appealing to the former Porsche boss? Since Porsche didn’t make a four-door sedan, did Ferry want something roomier? We don’t have a clue. One thing is certain: The man could buy whatever he wanted, and he bought an XJ6, so clearly he appreciated it.
