Delivered November 20, 1991

The 964-based Carrera RS was unveiled in 1992 as a limited-production, lightweight high- performance version of the Carrera 2 production car built to satisfy the many marque enthusiasts who demanded a new and modern successor to the wildly popular but low-production Carrera RS 2.7 of 1973-1975. Porsche produced a total of 2,276 examples of the 964 RS; 1,910 of those were stripped "Basics," also sometimes called Lightweights, designed to be highly responsive street or track cars with no luxury options available. There were also 290 N/GTs or "Sport" models for racing in the BPR GT Group N series and for owners who wished to participate in track events. Another 76 of them were finished in a "Touring" trim, with different and unique seats, full interiors, sound deadening, and luxury options like AC, sunroofs, and power windows; much more suitable for everyday street use.

The new RS closely followed the path of the 964 Carrera Cup racers. The RS packed an M64/03 air-cooled, dry-sump horizontally opposed SOHC six-cylinder modified to produce 260 hp at 6,100 rpm with 240 foot-pounds of torque at 5,000 rpm. Power was delivered via a single-mass sport flywheel to a G50/10 five-speed gearbox with steel synchronizer rings, altered shift sleeves, and taller first and second gears. A ZF asymmetrical limited-slip differential delivered 20 percent lockup under load and 100 percent lockup under braking.

The suspension offered a ride height reduced by an inch and a half, with stiffer McPherson struts, alloy transverse control arms, coil-over shock absorbers in the front end, and light-alloy semi-trailing arms with coil-over shock absorbers in the rear. Anti-roll bars at both ends were adjustable.

The 964's electrically assisted steering was replaced with a manual rack. Necessities such as air conditioning, power-adjustable seats, cruise control, an entertainment system, sound deadening, and insulation were all dispensed in the name of weight reduction. The rear seat was eliminated, replaced with lightweight carpeting. All chassis seams were fully welded, the 964's steel doors and front trunk lid were replaced with aluminum panels, and thinner glass was used for the doors and backlight. Both the driver and passenger enjoyed deeply bolstered bucket sport seats.

Chassis number 490603 is one of these rare cars, imported into North America from Germany in 2017. The Carrera RS is approximately 345 pounds lighter than the Carrera 2 model upon which it is based. It was originally prepared for the Austria market and was registered in Germany in 2002, the TYPENSCHEIN Porsche Certificate and Fahrzeug Information from Porsche confirms matching engine and transmission, noting that it was originally ordered with the following equipment:

111 Version for Austria
220 LSD Limited Slip Differential
