This Carrera RS 2.7 was completed in June 1973 designated as an M472 Touring. It was originally optioned with sport seats in Black leatherette with Corduroy inlays, limited slip differential, left and right head restraints and left and right retractable shoulder and lap belts. The RS was initially prepared for and sold to its first owner in Austria. Only 45 2.7 RS’ were sold to Austria.
This RS has always remained in excellent collector care and well serviced regardless of use. In recent collector ownership, this RS was commissioned for a cosmetic conversion to RS Lightweight specification including the seats (which are upholstered in original spec), Lightweight front and rear bumpers with exterior rubber latches and a rollbar. Previous owners include collector Andrew Baker as well as Lime Rock Park Historic Festival chairman and well-known BRDC member, Murray Smith. During both previous ownerships, this RS has been serviced with Automotive Restorations in Connecticut.
This is an excellent opportunity to own a very limited and rare air-cooled Porsche that has been set up for vintage rallies, tours as well as the Porschefile who would actually wants to use and enjoy their RS as it was meant in this day and age. This Carrera RS is superb throughout and ready for immediate collectability and touring pleasure.
