The Porsche 911 (964) Carrera RS, succeeds after almost 20 years of waiting, the legendary Carrera RS 2.7 from 1973. Designed for private motorsport, it is the new weapon of choice for clubbers weapon for clubbers: everything that is unnecessary is removed, while the engine and chassis are optimized for and the chassis are optimized for sporty use.
On the outside, the Carrera RS 3.6, or simply RS “92”, is more restrained than its predecessor. Unlike its predecessor, the 2.7 RS 73, which featured bright colors with colored stripes and a a very characteristic spoiler. They both clearly translate the state of mind of their generation. Among the visible changes to the 91 1 RS compared to the Carrera 2, which serves as a basis for the Carrera 2, which serves as its basis, are the special 17″ wheels and the tapered rear view mirrors of the of the 964 “Cup”. Then, the expert eye will stop at the lowered body (-40 mm) and the lightened rear bumper, with its rear bumper, with its side-plate lighting as on the 965 Turbo and the absence of front fog lights, the
fog lights, replaced by simple translucent covers.
The RS, available only as a coupe, is available in 3 versions: the “light” (MOOI identification), the ” touring ” (M002), and the Clubsport (M003), not officially imported in France.
The bodywork was colored with the choice among 8 colors, specific for some. They are the ruby red, amethyst metallic, black varnished, maritime blue, night blue metallic, Indian red, white grand prix and polar silver metallic. As for the invisible modifications, we have first of all first of all, the windows are thinner than on a C2, except for the windshield, and the front hood in aluminum. II no longer has jacks but a stand to keep it open. Inside, the armrests and pockets have disappeared pockets have disappeared to make room for an almost bare panel. The opening handles are replaced by a fabric strap, the electric windows are replaced by two good old cranks, the same for the the mirrors, and the concern of lightening goes even to the suppression of the plastic cap on the the plastic cap on the closing indicator! A small breach in safety, the interior door reinforcements are also door reinforcements have also been removed. To continue with the “Cup” spirit, the front seats are replaced by Recaro replaced by very light Recaro bucket seats with composite fiber shells. Each one weighs only 4.5 kg instead of 25 kg on a Carrera 2 … In the end, the RS 92 is 130 kilos lighter than a C2 Coupe.

However, despite this seemingly modest increase in power, the Carrera RS’s engine is not the engine of the Carrera RS is not really identical to that of the 964 Carrera 2 and weighs only 226 kg. The differences include a special injection system (Bosh Motronic) with a cut-off speed positioned above 7000 rpm.
