The Amelia Island Concours Auction, held in early March, broke eleven world records for Porsches, most notably the 1973 917/30 Can-Am Spyder that sold for a remarkable $4.4 million.

Additionally, a 1955 Porsche 550 went for a record $3.685 million, and a 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Turbo sold for $3.245 million. Other records broken include top prices for a Porsche 935, 962, 911 GT1, 906, 934, 924, 968 and 944. All in all, ten cars sold for more than a million dollars, and all sales combined for a total of $36 million.
