Porsche is big on anniversaries, so 20 years after the introduction of its landmark 911 Carrera RS 2.7, a more modern equivalent appeared in 1992—the 964 Carrera 2-based Carrera RS. This new competition-oriented road car, patterned after the 964 Carrera Cup race car, was unavailable in the United States. To appease demand, Porsche created a version called the RS America that met U.S. standards. It retained the fuel-injected 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine—albeit slightly detuned—and close-ratio five-speed manual transmission of the Carrera RS. Like its counterpart, the RS America featured a stripped-down interior for weight savings and a lowered sport suspension; but it had a large fixed plane “whale tail” spoiler at the rear. Porsche Cars North America CEO Fred Schwab described the RS America as the perfect car for autocrossers and track junkies. In all, 701 are believed to have been built.
