Similar to many of Porsche’s limited-production models, 000 magazine carries an air of exclusivity—even more so when it comes to the limited-edition Subscription S. The hardcover version is limited to 999 units annually, with each issue carrying a numbered aluminum “VIN plate” for authenticity. The complete collection offered here at no reserve is 055 / 999 and has been kept at 000's headquarters. Founders Pete and Alex have graciously decided to auction the only complete S set ever offered publicly, and have included a copy of the softcover Issue 000 “Prototyp” as well as the first-year S gift, a sculpture by Stéphane Dufour, along with the S gifts from 2018-2021. All proceeds will be donated to the North Valley Community Fund to assist communities in the wake of the devastating 2021 Dixie Fire.
From the beginning, 000 Magazine has been about providing more to the reader. The experience, with each issue spanning 256 pages, is more engaging thanks to a superior content/ad ratio and a high-quality fit-and-finish that's more akin to a soft-cover book than a traditional periodical. With sustainability in mind, there is no newsstand edition, resulting in little wasted paper or materials. This attention to detail and quality means that each issue of 000 can be displayed on its own, or on a coffee table with other books.
Many of the early softcover issues have sold out, and the same is true with Subscription S. The complete Subscription S set being auctioned here is number 055 of 999, and takes the experience to the next level in terms of exclusivity and quality. Each issue is hardbound by hand and comes with a laser-etched plaque showing an individual serial number. Each year, a handmade, powder-coated aluminum slipcase for all four quarterly issues is provided and finished in a unique color recognizing a historic Porsche shade. This collection also includes a 2017 sculpture by Stéphane Dufour of the Typ 64 in black—the 1939 rally racer that set the styling template for the Porsche's post-war 356—with matching number 055 / 999. A new copy of the long unavailable 000 Prototyp issue is also included.
This complete set of hardcover, hand-bound, serial-numbered 000 Subscription S magazines, slipcases, Issue 000 Prototyp, and the first-year sculpture is a second-chance opportunity for Porsche enthusiasts. We encourage you to bid with enthusiasm as all proceeds from this auction will be donated to the North Valley Community Fund to assist those affected by the disastrous 2021 Dixie Fire.
