Porsche 911 owned by Steve McQueen

Thirty years after his death, Steve McQueen?s name still reverberates within the auto industry. The man known as the ?King of Cool? was not only one of his generation’s biggest movie stars, but also made a name for himself for his love of cars, racing, and a combination of the two.

Speaking of cars, McQueen owned a pretty amazing collection of cars back in the day, one of which is this 1970 Porsche 911 that’s headed for the auction block at RM Auctions in Monterey, California this coming August.

According to RM, the car, all 40 years old of it, still "remains in exceptionally original condition". While some people will be skeptical of buying an old Porsche that undoubtedly has had its fair share of work done to it, those who prefer to see the glass as half-full will point out that this particular 911 still stands as one of the most iconic 911 models in history.

Even if it’s gone through a number of owners after the original, you still can’t deny that this particular model’s first owner is no other than the "King of Cool" himself, Steve McQueen.
