Now in its 20th year, RM’s 2018 Amelia Island sale is once again set to take place in March 2018. The auction preview, on the Thursday and Friday, is arranged on the lush oceanfront grounds of The Ritz-Carlton hotel, providing a breathtaking backdrop for the stunning selection of automobiles on offer.
Amelia Island is perched on the idyllic sun-kissed coast of North-eastern Florida, providing a grand atmosphere for the midday sale on the Saturday. Since the inaugural Amelia Island auction in 1999, RM has been the principal sponsor and official auction house of the world-renowned Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.

At the Amelia Island sale, RM Sotheby’s will present the world’s most extensive and exclusive collection of limited-production Porsche 911 Type 964 variants when the company returns to Florida as the official auction house of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance on 10 March.
Aptly named ‘Exclusively Porsche – The 964 Collection,’ the group of eleven Type 964s and one 930 was assembled by a single collector, and avid Porsche enthusiast, over a decade and comprises the last of the truly hand-built Porsches, yet the first production models with coil-over suspensions, power steering, and ABS brakes. The collector also sought out the finest examples of all the 964 specials – high-performance cars either built or modified in limited quantities by Porsche’s Exclusive department.
“The 964 Collection is without a doubt the most complete and best collection of limited-production Porsche 964s to ever come to public auction,” says Alexander Weaver, Car Specialist, RM Sotheby’s. “The owner was well ahead of his time in assembling this group, which represents some of the rarest models in the entire Porsche lineage. We’ve had the privilege of bringing several exceptional collections of Porsche 911s to market over the last two years, and look forward to securing more strong results in Amelia Island, a proven venue for fresh-to-market rarities.”
