For Sale: 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera in Miami, Florida


Vehicle Description

During the early 70's Porsche engineers and drivers studied the behavior of current 911 race cars on track and systematically began to address each area in which they lost time. Both weight and aerodynamics came under close scrutiny - ultimately, the RS would weigh hundreds of pounds less than a standard 911; and stability and downforce efforts are capped off by the fiberglass front airdam and ducktail competition spoiler, the first one on a production car. Number 181 is among the earliest of the Touring models built. Porsche's Certificate of Authenticity confirms it was constructed in the first batch of 500 cars between September and November of 1972, although like most 911 Carrera RS models it is listed as a 1973 on the COA. It was recently restored in Europe by a marque specialist, and is reported to be in excellent condition. Having left the factory in Signal Yellow, it is currently finished in equally eye-catching Orange over a fresh Black leather interior. In 2015 the original engine was located in Sweden with injection system intact and disassembled, rebuilt, installed and tuned by well known Porsche engine specialist Drew Slayton in South Carolina. Furthermore, the original engine's number, 6630191, matches the certificate of authenticity included with the car. For more information, please contact Walt Grace Vintage at (786) 483-8180
