Lot #1020.2 - "Tina" is the "hot-wired" start-up button for the Gone in 60 Seconds 2000 film starring Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie, Robert Duvall and Giovanni Ribisi, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Dominic Sena. There is only one Gone in 60 Seconds "Tina." Own a piece of automotive/movie history. She has been celebrated in the movie, trailers, media press photos and lobby cards. "Tina" has the number one job to kick start this fuel injected film when Kip Raines (Giovanni Ribisi) smashes the Porsche dealership's glass door with a brick, they race inside and "Mirror Man" reads off "Tina's" stock number "42850" to Kip. Then with keys in hand, they jump into "Tina" and crash through the Porsche dealership's front glass window. Soon after, Kip's careless ways get "Tina" into a full throttle street race that ends up leading the police to the warehouse full of boosted cars. Now Kip's life is in the hands of an evil mobster. Legendary car booster "Memphis Raines" (Nicolas Cage) comes out of retirement to save his brothers life. "They say since Memphis Raines left Southern California car theft went down 47%." No detail was spared in "Tina's" creation, the amazing SPS Porsche Builders were hired to custom build "Tina" for the movie. She needed to be safe for actor Giovanni Ribisi and stunt driver Johnny Martin, because "Tina is NOT going to be computer generated" in the stunts. She did her street race and crashing through the window. "Tina" started he life as a 1978 Porsche 911 because the early 911 chassis was lighter for the major crash scene through the front window of the Porsche dealership. "Tina's" 1978 911 body was stripped down, including the roof and with great expert craftsmanship a new 1999 996 composite fiberglass body (all factory original NOS Porsche parts made in Germany) was handcrafted onto "Tina's" chassis. The driver and passenger windows are able to be kicked out in case of emergency.
