Auctioneer's accent leads to $53 million error at sale of 1st Porsche

One of the first Porsches ever made was put up for auction over the weekend, but no one bought it in part due to a massive misunderstanding. The Porsche Type 64, which was built in the 1930s during the era of Nazi Germany, was expected to fetch $20 million at auction Saturday. Bidding appeared to rise at an unprecedented rate, but it was all due to a misunderstanding caused by the auctioneer's Dutch accent.
