THE RS AMERICA

In 1989, Porsche introduced an almost completely new platform for its venerable 911 Series. Replacing the 911 Carrera 3.2, the Type 964 carried the internal model number and would last until 1994, serving as the basis for the new all-wheel-drive Carrera 4 and then the two-wheel-drive Carrera 2. Compared to its predecessor, the 964 was said to be made up (about 80 percent) of new parts and it presented a somewhat revised body shape with well-integrated bumpers.

In early 1992, a new RS America version appeared solely for the US and Canadian markets. The concept of the RS America was a lightweight, more track oriented 911, made simultaneously with the European market homologation special RS. The limited production RS America carried a hefty price tag, and saved weight by losing the air conditioning, power steering, and less sound insulation. A lightweight fixed whale tail spoiler was fitted to the back, and inside one found competition-like lightweight door trim with door pulls, and no rear seats. Lightweight fabric seats were installed for further weight reduction. The M030 sports suspension package was fitted, including larger anti-roll bars. Due to the limited production and performance-oriented specification, these RS Americas have become very collectible in recent years.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed in August 1993, near the end of the limited RS America production run, this fine example was delivered to the first owner - presumably a Delaware resident - in February 1994. By 2002, the black RS America had relocated to Southern California, and is believed to have remained here ever since. The detailed CARFAX issued for the car reports consistent mileage readings up through the years, and much service work performed, while the car has passed the stringent CA Smog inspection periodically. With just 58,619 original miles on the odometer at the time of cataloging, this lightweight 911 remains in highly original condition. Offered with fitted roll cage, optional sunroof, air compressor and tool kit, this rare competition-derived 911 is getting increasingly collectible.
