Even with a thinner auction docket than the annual January sales blowout in Arizona and a headline concours event that can’t quite match Pebble Beach’s prestige, Amelia Island car weekend in Florida is held in high regard among vintage-car connoisseurs.
Porsches, ever major participants at Amelia Island festivities, stole eight of the top 20 spots for priciest sales at this year’s auctions, as observed by Hagerty Insurance.

Unsurprisingly, Ferrari products took over the podium, bringing the three highest sale prices and being the only cars this weekend that hammered for more than $2 million. Overall sales failed to meet Hagerty’s forecast and fell short of the 2017 results, but five auction houses still sold 334 cars for a total of $80.4 million—so don’t shed any tears. The following 20 rides accounted for $31.1 million of that total: You don’t need to know anything about Marmon, the Indiana car company that was victorious in the inaugural Indianapolis 500, to understand why this example is so valuable.
