In October of 1972, at the Paris Motor Show, Porsche launched a highly significant and specialized version of the 911: the 911 Carrera RS 2.7. Developed as a homologation special for Group 4 racing, only 500 units were initially planned for production. A stripped down, more powerful version of the 911 at that time, the 2.7 RS was the fastest German production car built to date. From that date forward, the RS moniker on a Porsche 911 meant serious business.

Then, in 1991, after almost 20 years of radio silence, the RS badge was revived at the Geneva Motor Show by way of the all-new 964 911 Carrera RS. Based on the 964 911 Carrera 2 but derived from the Carrera Cup, the Carrera RS was developed as a rear-wheel-drive homologation special to qualify the Carrera Cup for the N-GT class of racing. Just like the 1972 RS that came before it, the 964 Carrera RS was a lightweight, more powerful version of the Carrera 2, and only 1,000 units were planned for production. Upgrades included stiffer Bilstein suspension, bigger brakes, new lightweight magnesium wheels, and a lightweight flywheel. Engine output rose from 250 to 260 bhp and 229 to 240 lb-ft of torque. The interior was stripped of almost all creature comforts, including the rear seats, power windows, airbags, and most of the sound deadening material. The side and rear glass was thinner than standard, and the driver and passenger seats were replaced with fiberglass Recaro bucket seats wrapped in a thin layer of leather. The result of all of this meant that the Carrera RS weighed approximately 100 kilograms less than the standard Carrera 2. Due to the aggressive nature of the car and lack of certain safety equipment, the 964 Carrera RS was only developed for the European market and was never initially sold in America. 

This 1992 Belgian-market example was imported to the US in 2021 and has spent its subsequent years in Denver, CO under the care of Blue Chip. This 964 has undergone extensive maintenance and has received a handful of tasteful upgrades since being imported. Services performed include a full engine-out reseal, upgraded Bilstein PSS10 coilovers, and new brake pads and rotors, as well as a multitude of other minor enhancements and refreshments.

This RS is finished in striking Amethyst Metallic over a Black leather interior and features a retractable rear spoiler, a lightweight aluminum front trunk lid, and a single-exit exhaust. RS-specific exterior details include flared wheel arches to accommodate 17” magnesium Cup Design wheels, finished in Silver, as well as a lower ride height, manual side mirrors, and a Carrera RS model badge in Black. 

The cabin houses fiberglass Recaro full-bucket seats which have been trimmed in Black leather and feature quad-color purple seat inserts, as well as color-coordinated Amethyst seat belts. The RS moniker meant the deletion of the rear seats, which were replaced by black carpet trim with the Carrera RS insignia stitched in Amethyst on the rear carpeted section. Lightweight door panels are finished in Black leather and are punctuated by color-matching Amethyst door latch pulls straps, as well as the deletion of the standard armrests and cargo pockets. Black leather extends to the gear selector and the dashboard, which houses an optional Blaupunkt stereo unit. A four-spoke, Black leather wrapped steering wheel bears the RS logo and frames a 6,800-rpm tachometer alongside a 300 km/h speedometer. 

This 964 Carrera RS displays 67,047km from new and is now offered for sale in Denver, CO. Available with Belgian service records, US service records, and a clean Colorado title, this example has been thoroughly enjoyed by its previous owners and is now looking for a new home.
