The 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS
Another RennSport variant arrives at LBI Limited’s Pontiac, Michigan Showroom. The Carrera RS was forbidden fruit for the US Market which instead received the 964 RS America; a watered-down version of this car. Here is why we love them!
Contrary to today’s trend of wildly optioned, and deeply spec’d Porsche RennSport offerings, in the 1990s, these cars stayed true to their purpose-build nature as a stripped-down, methodically lightened 911. Rather than defeating the purpose of the car’s original intentions by adding options (weight), most of these #CarreraRS examples came with little to no options at all. No radio, sound deadening, lightened aluminum panels, thinner gauge glass, manual steering, and ultimately free from anything that would hinder speed and cause distractions from one thing- DRIVING! Who needs a radio when you have that 260 hp flat-six propelling you around corners in a musical symphony of mechanical delight? This is why we love the 964 Carrera RS and its place in history.
This example is a numbers-matching car in Polar Silver with 60,000 KM from new.
