Tough decisions. Life is just full of them. Should I rent or buy a house? Should I quit my job? Should I have children? Which Porsche 964 should I purchase? If that last one is among your most pressing of dilemmas, you are in luck. RM Sotheby’s “Exclusively Porsche” collection, coming up for auction at Amelia Island, may well be the most complete assemblage of Porsche 964s in the known universe.
This group of 11 Type 964s (and one 930) was curated by a single collector over a decade and comprises the last of the truly hand-built Porsches. It includes some absolute beauties, including a virtually brand new, untouched 1993 Carrera RSR 3.8, finished in an ultra-rare paint-to-sample Ferrari Yellow and valued between $1.25-1.5 million.
Some other doozies in the collection: a 1993 Turbo S ‘Leichtbau’ (Est. $1m-$1.2m); a 1993 RSR 3.8 (Est. $1.2-1.4 million); and a Turbo S X83 ‘Flachbau’ ($600,000-$800,000), one of only 10 made. Basically, you’ll find every important 964 — the generation of 911s that preceded the 993, spanning from 1989 to 1994 — built over its six-year production run here.
Sure, seeing all these drool-worthy 964s side-by-side may just exacerbate your indecision, rather than conquer it. Which is why we’d suggest simply buying all of them and calling it a day. What else are you going to spend your money on? A retirement fund? Pshh. Does a retirement fund have a Thor-like chassis and majestic curves? Didn’t think so.
The “Exclusively Porsche” collection will go up for auction March 10, 2018, at Amelia Island in Florida. Get your wallets ready.
