Tom Cruise Porsche 928 Risky Business Movie Barrett-Jackson
The most recent Barrett-Jackson, which took place at the Inaugural Houston Auction at NRG Center in Houston, Texas, achieved $37.5 million in total sales, including a record-setting $1.98-million for a 1979 Porsche 928 driven by Tom Cruise in “Risky Business”. These vehicles normally sell for $20,000 – $50,000+ USD depending on the condition, but this is one of three used during filming and received the most screen time with Tom Cruise behind the wheel.



To keep this famous vehicle in concours condition – the most professional level of restoration possible, it was stored in a climate-controlled environment and was showcased at Porsche Cars North America for a 1-year before being transported to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles for its influential Porsche Effect Exhibit. Power comes from a 4.5L naturally-aspirated V8 producing 219 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque, paired with a five-speed manual transmission, enabling it to hit 60 mph in a very respectable 6.8 seconds.
