RM Sotheby’s further fans the flames of the modern Porsche pandemic

Having triggered the insatiable craze for — and subsequent seismic shift in — the value of certain modern Porsches in the last two years, RM Sotheby’s is looking to bolster the trend at its Amelia Island sale on 10 March with an extraordinary collection of 11 limited-production Porsche 964s…

Seismic shift

Boasting all the most desirable characteristics of today’s ‘best of the best’ automotive gems — namely rarity, outstanding condition, and low-mileage — ‘Exclusively Porsche – The 964 Collection’ is spearheaded by a 1993 Porsche Carrera RS 3.8, one of 55 built and showing just 7,000 kilometres on the clock (est. 1.25–1.5m US dollars), and a never-raced Ferrari Yellow 1993 Carrera RSR 3.8 (1.2–1.4m dollars). Other rarities include a 1993 Turbo S ‘Leichtbau’ (1–1.2m dollars) and one of the rarest production Porsches in existence, a one-of-10 Turbo S X83 ‘Flachbau’ (500,000–650,000 dollars). Hindsight is, of course, a wonderful thing. But, as RM Car Specialist Oliver Camelin will testify, foresight is even better — we must commend the enthusiast who assembled this incredible collection of Porsches. If it performs anything like similar cars have in recent years at auction, expect a slew of Stuttgart-centric headlines from Amelia Island in March.
