Are you a fan of the 964? You know, the version of the Porsche 911 made in the early 1990s. Well if you are, does RM Sotheby's have an auction in store for you.
At Amelia Island this coming March, the Canadian automotive auction house will sell off no fewer than 12 of the second-generation German sports car – and not your garden variety, either: we're talking Turbos and RS 3.8s here.
Top of the heap, in fact, are a Carrera RS 3.8, an RSR 3.8, and a Turbo S “Leichtbau” – all of them in yellow from the 1993 model year. RS is valued at $1.25-1.5 million, the RSR at $1.2-1.4 million, and the Turbo at $1-1.2 million.
Those are some big bucks for an early-90s Porsche, and if they're too rich for your blood, the rest carry six- (not seven-) figure price tags. There's a red flat-nose '89 Turbo, a yellow '91 Turbo 3.3, a silver '92 Carrera RS, another silver '93 Carrera RS America, a yellow '94 Speedster, and a yellow '94 Turbo 3.6 – each valued at $200-250k.
In between there's a pair of flat-nose '94 Turbo S models – one in silver for $500-650k and one in (yep) yellow for $600-800k – along with a white '91 Carrera Cup ($250-325k).
RM Sotheby's photographer Patrick Ernzen has beautifully captured what's billed as “Exclusively Porsche: The 964 Collection” in the gallery below (presented in the order mentioned above), so have a look. If you like what you see (and have the budget to spend), the Ritz-Carlton will be the place to be come March 10 during the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance.
