The 964’s are the Porsches 911’s that were made from 1989 till 1993 (964 is the internal type designation).
The 964 is the beautiful symbiosis of old and new: the classic 911 shape with completely renewed technology,
including the twinspark 3.6 liter engine, gearbox, steering, wheels, chassis etc.
The Porsches with the suffix RS (‘RennSport’) are the fastest variants of the series.
Only 1,972 copies of the Porsche 964 RS Lightweight M002 have been built.
With the birth of the 964 RS, Porsche ones more built a racing-inspired 911 after the 2.7 RS in 1973.
The considerably improved performance and handling were achieved by a considerable (10%) weight saving,
next to technical adjustments.
Compared to the standard Carrera 2, air conditioning, electric window control, rear window heating,
central locking were omitted. Use was made of the weight-saving Recaro bucket seats, manually adjustable
cup mirrors, lightweight door panels (with the characteristic straps on the doors), 5.5 kilos lighter rear bumper,
thinner wiring harness, aluminum boot lid, magnesium rims, thinner floor covering, lightweight battery and
thinner glass (3mm instead of 4.7mm).
Noise-canceling upholstery was omitted, as were the seats for passengers in the rear.
Only the best engines were selected for this series. The extra performance compared to the standard
Carrera 2 engines were achieved by an adapted engine management system.
The sprint went from 0-100 in 5.4 seconds and the top speed was almost 290.
The most impressive however, was the intermediate sprints, which improved considerably thanks to
the lightweight (racing) flywheel and gearbox adjustments.
Larger, ventilated turbo Brakes in front and the 964 Cup series brakes provided the required braking performance.
The sports suspension (other springs and shock absorbers) ensured that the 964 is 40 mm lower, which
guarantees excellent road handling as well as stunning looks, even when standing still.
The 964 RS is the favorite of many car enthusiasts as you will be able to read in many publications such as
Topgear magazine, Total911, PerformanceCar, GT Porsche, etc.
The former world rally champion and Porsche test driver Walter Röhrl even adores his black 964 RS.
Many Porsches have come and gone in his private collection, but the 964 RS remains in his vicinity.
This Röhrl (Black!) 964 RS is so famous that it is also for sale as a 1:18 scale model.
The 964 RS has recently been admitted to the US. We see many disappear to the other side of the ocean.
In summary, you can safely say that the 964 RS is a racing car is for the public road, which is also great to use
for beautiful touring and even for everyday use. To many this is the ultimate Porsche.
