This assemblage of Porsches showcases the top-notch offerings from Zuffenhausen, ranging from historical race cars to contemporary models. Notably captivating is the Porsche 991 Motorsport Collection, consisting of two extraordinary 911s and an exceptionally scarce 935.

Porsche enthusiasts, prepare to have your mouths watering.

The undisputed standout of the trio, the 2019 935 is in pristine condition and boasts a custom gray wrap for added protection, along with the iconic Martini racing design. This particular car comes with a jaw-dropping $44,300 worth of spare parts, including extra wheels, brakes, and various other components. As one of only 77 produced, this specific 935 (number 76) is expected to fetch an impressive price of $1,500,000 to $1,750,000.

The opportunity to own a 2019 Porsche 991 GT2 RS Clubsport is here, as one of the exclusive 200 limited edition models created by Porsche Motorsport. This particular car features a striking Pure White exterior with no livery, and also comes with an impressive $25,000 worth of spares. It boasts an impressive 700-horsepower and has yet to hit the roads, making it an ideal choice for those looking for a thrilling ride. Additionally, it is eligible to participate in various accredited racing events. The estimated selling price ranges from $550,000 to $650,000.

Introducing the exclusive 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (991), designed strictly for the race track. Adorned in a striking hue that mirrors the iconic GT2 RS, this brand new speed demon is eagerly awaiting a new proprietor. With a price range of $250,000 to $350,000, it stands as the most affordable option among its fellow counterparts.

If old school Porsches are your thing, then the 1961 RS61 Spyder should catch your attention. This particular vehicle, chassis number 718-076, was immediately put to use in motor racing events upon its release, as its original owner used it to compete in various Austrians races and hill climbs.

The car was ultimately purchased by a resident of South Africa, who later emerged as the victorious driver in the South African Sports Car Championship. Subsequently changing owners once more, it eventually landed in America and has remained there ever since. Among the mere 30 existing versions, this particular RS61 is anticipated to fetch a staggering amount of $4-$5 million during its appearance at the auction.

For auction is the 1957 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster, a highly sought-after model among collectors. Of the numerous 356 versions, only 90 were built as Carrera Speedsters in GS/GT specification, making it quite rare. While its history remains largely unknown, the car was unearthed in the 1980s and underwent an extensive restoration process. It has been valued at an estimated price of $1,300,000 to $1,500,000.

The auction of a 1990 Porsche 964 Carrera 4 Reimagined by Singer is sure to elicit interest, as it belongs to the first batch of ‘Classic Study’ vehicles, totaling at 450 units. This particular model, referred to as the ‘Amsterdam Commission,’ has only traveled 2,077 miles and has been skillfully crafted by the team at Singer. These rare specimens are not frequently offered for sale, making it imperative for collectors to act promptly when the bidding commences. Experts predict a selling price between $1,100,000 and $1,300,000.

At the Amelia Island Auction, three additional 964s will be featured alongside the previously mentioned models. Each of these vehicles holds its own unique significance. One such car is a ’92 Carrera RS, with an estimated value of $400,000 to $500,000. Another notable offering is a ’92 Carrera RS N/GT, which is expected to reach between $600,000 and $800,000. Finally, a ’94 Turbo S Flachbau X83 is set to make an appearance with a staggering price range of $1,000,000 to $1,250,000. The Flachbau, also known as Flatnose, is especially noteworthy as it is one of the last of the 964 Turbo S line to be manufactured. This particular vehicle has been confirmed to make its way to Japan after the auction.

Finally, a highly coveted Porsche 918 Spyder featuring the sought-after Weissach package will soon be available for purchase. Out of only 28 cars that were brought to Canada, this specific model boasts a unique Gulf Oil design, approved by the company themselves. This exclusive feature is bound to increase its worth, considering that it was never offered by the Porsche factory. Having been driven for under 400 miles, this could potentially become one of the most expensive 918 Spyders on the market.

As previously noted, Weissach editions are highly coveted and can fetch a high price on the market. One recent sale of a 918 Spyder Weissach brought in nearly $4 million due to its exceptional features. But will this particular model, decked out in Gulf livery, surpass that amount? Only time will tell. The auction is scheduled for Thursday, February 29 and Friday, March 1 at the Omni Amelia Island Resort. And for those not necessarily interested in Porsche, there will be a wide selection of collector cars from various brands offered at the event.
