1995 Porsche 911 / 993 Carrera RS
Year of manufacture1995
The 993 Carrera RS introduced in 1995 was the ultimate air cooled version of the iconic 911. Featuring the famous flat 6 - in normally aspirated 3.8 litre form it gave 300bhp - and covered 0-100mph in just 11.2 seconds. It looked and handled superbly with a non retractable 'whale tail', split rim 3 piece 18 inch racing wheels and a weight saving interior with no rear seats, basic door cards and handle for exit, no sound proofing and special racing seats. An even bigger rear wing and a roll cage were the only factory options. Only 1014 (nearly all left hand drive) were made world wide and it's now legendary status mean this is one of the most collectable 911's of all time.
This 993 RS was supplied new to the German home market in left hand drive form in 1995 and comes complete with most of it's original German documentation and a rear roll cage. It first came to the UK in 2002 and has covered a total of 101,000 kms which equates to just 62,000 miles with just 3 previous keepers in Germany and a further 3 in the UK.
It benefits from much recent restoration work which includes a full re-paint in the original colour of Guards Red. The history file contains many documents including 13 service history stamps and a mixture of service invoices dating from 1995 through to September 2012 and various ECU readouts (to confirm no over-revving of the engine).
Also present are the original handbooks and service pack and even the audio instructions! Today it is a rare and exciting opportunity to own an RS model that has consistently climbed in value since new.
