Description

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' The Tegernsee Auction event, 27 July 2024.

  • A spectacular example of the ultra-desirable and lightweight 911 Carrera RS
  • Powered by its matching-numbers 3.6-litre Type M64 engine; factory-rated for a 260 horsepower output
  • Finished in its factory-correct Rubystone Red over a black leather interior with coloured seat inserts
  • Featured in a 2023 edition of Alles Auto magazine
  • One of only 1,992 examples of the 964-generation 911 Carrera RS built

Released in 1988, the third-generation Porsche 911 marked the dawn of a new era. The smoother bumpers, redesigned wheels, and retractable spoiler suggested a superficial makeover—yet 85 per cent of the car had been re-engineered. Key updates included the 3,600 cc Type M64 flat-six, coil-spring suspension (in place of torsion bars), and improved aerodynamics.

Variants included the Carrera 2, all-wheel-drive Carrera 4, and Turbo, but for 1992 Porsche developed a very special version: the Carrera RS. Inspired by its 1973 namesake, the RS was closely related to the Carrera Cup racer. Sitting 40 millimetres lower than the Carrera 2, the 260 horsepower RS featured a lightened flywheel, limited-slip differential, Cup wheels, and Turbo brakes, plus a bare-bones cockpit to keep weight down.

One of only 1,992 produced, this RS left the Stuttgart factory on 2 March 1992. Specified in stunning Rubystone Red—perhaps the most striking colour ever to grace a 911—it was delivered to its first owner in Darmstadt, Germany. The 911 comes with handbooks in a Porsche folio further to a factory-issued certificate of authenticity issued by Porsche Austria in 2023, which verifies this car’s matching-numbers engine. Beautifully presented, the car was restored in 2023 and has been upgraded with a roll cage, harnesses, and fire extinguisher; it is accompanied by photos of the restoration process. Starring in the 12/2023 edition of Alles Auto magazine, this RS represents an exciting opportunity to acquire a truly iconic 964.
