Based on the original 'Carrera Cup' 911 race car, Porsche introduced the now legendary and super lightweight 'Carrera RS' in 1992.
The special built 3.6 engine gave 264 bhp and was matched to a G50 close ratio gearbox with steel synchromesh and a limited slip differential as standard. Following the original 2.7 RS theme of the 1970's, the stripped out interior was devoid of rear seats, electric windows, air conditioning, all sound deadening and a stereo system. The chassis was seam welded and the front bonnet was made of aluminium which when combined with thinner glass, magnesium wheels, lowered and uprated suspension, Turbo front brakes and recalibrated ABS - it all made for a very high performance and specialist car indeed.
This left hand drive RS 'Touring' was built in 1992 for the Italian market and has since covered 84,200 kms which equates to 52,000 miles. The original leather bound hand books and instruction manual are present with 13 stamps in total from 1999 to 2008, as are 17 copy invoices and 4 previous MOT certificates. It has recently been repainted and benefits from 4 new Bridgestone tyres. It is now ready to use. The black interior trim and dashboard are very original and the car represents a rare and appreciating opportunity in the market place.
