In 1991, Porsche produced a super-lightweight, rear-wheel-drive only version of the 964 dubbed Carrera RS for the Rest of World Market only not available for sale in U.S.A. It was based on Porsche’s 911 “Carrera Cup” race car and harked back to the 2.7 and 3.0 RS and RSR models from the 1970’s. It featured a revised version of the standard engine, titled M64/03 internally, with an increased power output of 260 bhp (194 kW; 264 PS) and lightweight flywheel coupled to the G50/10 transmission with closer ratios, asymmetrical Limited Slip Differential and steel synchromesh. A track-oriented [suspension|] system with 40 mm (1.6 in) lower ride height, stiffer springs, shocks and adjustable stabilizer bars without power steering (RHD UK cars did have power steering).
A stripped-out interior devoid of power windows or seats, rear seats, air conditioning, cruise control, sound deadening or a stereo system (optionally fitted) and new racing-bucket front seats were part of the package. The trunk hood was made of aluminum, the chassis was seam welded and sound deadening was deleted. Wheels were made of magnesium and the glass was thinner in the doors and rear window. The Carrera RS is approximately 345 pounds (155 kg) lighter than the US version Carrera 2 model. These cars were light, nimble, fast and exceedingly fun to drive on the track or on the street.
This particular car was sold new to Rome, Italy and the original owner kept the car until my purchase just two months ago. Rare in its brilliant color of Guards Red, this car is in “as new” condition with only 11,260 KM’s (6,981 Miles)! Just completed a Major Service with new tires (original tires were still on the car) this car needs nothing for either concourse, street or track events. Tools, books, jack, spare, etc. etc accompany Sale of this car.
One of the best one owner 964 RS’s ever offered in U.S.A.!!
