Hello, I found something extraordinary in my grandparents house - Porsche design by Carrera sunglassesmade of pure gold (marked on the side) with 2 pair of lenses in good condition with a plastic case. How much do you guys think it might cost?

Thank you!

Hey Sim! WOW! What a good find... I did a little research for you. Porsche Design Group released an exclusive limited edition pair of sunglasses on the market, the Porsche P’8499. The new Porsche P’8499 sunglasses combine gold and platinum equally. The front of the text and the bar are made of 18 carat gold and Pt 900 platinum. The polycarbonate lenses are mirrored with 24 carat gold to offer optimal protection for the eyes.

We said at the beginning that the P’8499 are available in a limited edition. As you probably might have guessed by now, they are produced in Porsche’s trademark number of 911 at the price of $6,670.00

I'm not sure if that is the model you have because I also found there is a P’8447 which is a very similar product, $2,415.00. So the lenses aren’t gold mirrored, but the frame is made of white 18-carat gold.

We'd really like to see some pictures :D

Hope this helped!
