THE PORSCHE CARRERA RS

Following in the footsteps of the legendary Carrera RS 2.7, Porsche would reinterpret the Rennsport-spec 911 for the 1990's. The result was the Stuttgart firm's most pure and refined form of the final generation air-cooled 911.

While the 964 Carrera RS that debuted several years earlier is seen as uncompromisingly hardcore, the 1995 model year benefitted from all the work that had been done producing the 993 platform. Nearly 80% of the parts were specifically engineered for this next generation. A new alloy subframe served as the base for the redesigned multilink rear suspension. Generally, this improved stability, ride quality, and reduced the tendency for the car to oversteer off-throttle like previous 911s. Along with the other improvements, to quantifiably large to list, Porsche had created the best 911 to date.

It would only get better with the RS. Much of the focus was spent on reducing the greatest killer of performance: weight. Electric power windows, adjustable mirrors, central locking, headlight washers, and audio system speakers were all luxuries sacrificed in the name of speed. However, the extensive diet did not stop there. Porsche even went so far as to reduce the size of the windshield washer bottle and decrease the thickness of the glass. Well bolstered leather bucket seats saved an additional 66lbs and sound insulation was removed throughout the car. Simple door cards with pull straps instead of door handles rounded off the extensive weight saving measures.
Under the skin, further refinements were implemented to improve the driving characteristics. The center of gravity was lowered thanks to a reduction, 30mm front and 40mm rear, of the suspension's ride height. This suspension offered supreme control, not just in handling but also setup. 5-way adjustable front anti-roll bars and struts allow the driver to dial everything in precisely to their liking. Larger aluminum 4 piston brakes aided in decreasing un-sprung mass but increasing stopping power, while larger tires wrapped around three-piece Speedline wheels all around ensured a maximum footprint on the tarmac.

Sitting at the core of the driving experience is the wonderful M64/20 flat six engine. An increased bore to 102mm resulted in a total displacement of 3.8 liters, up from the standard 3.6 of other 993s. Internally, forged pistons helped reduced the rotating mass within the engine helping it rev much freer. Better breathing from increased intake and exhaust valves in addition to Porsche's 'Varioram' variable intake tract lengths meant 300 total horsepower was produced by the motor. With the additional low-end torque provided by the increased displacement, Porsche created a real gem of a motor that is a delight to rev out all the way to its 7,100rpm redline.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed at the Stuttgart-based Porsche factory in July of 1995, 993 Carrera RS 3.8 #390626 received a good variety of options available to purchasers. Degrees of comfort were added thanks to the re-installation of essentials such as automatic air conditioning, radio and power windows. On the performance end, this RS received the desirable fixed 'Club Sport' wing on the back of the car with integrated ram intakes, and a deeper chin spoiler compliments up front. Together, both elements work to increase stability at speed and increase downforce. The new Porsche was painted Grand Prix White, fitted with partial leather interior and bucket seats, and originally delivered to a Japanese customer via Mizwa Motors, the legendary Porsche agency and importer for Japan at the time. The car remained in the land of the rising sun until 2016, when it was imported into the US under the 'Show and Display' exemption rule. The desirable, limited-edition Porsche had been preserved very well, and remained in original condition throughout, with the odometer having ticked just over 28,000 kilometers (17,400 miles) since new.

Today, this rare and desirable, air-cooled 911 Carrera RS 3.8 shows extremely well throughout, with just the type of wear you would expect from a vehicle with this low mileage. Outside, the Grand Prix White paint appears in largely original condition and the body is straight with proper panel fitment. The desirable 'Club Sport' spoiler option package suits the RS 3.8 tremendously well. Inside, the original interior has also been looked after with great attention, while the Black/Grey/White leatherette interior on the color-coded sport bucket seats certainly add a bit of flare to what is for the most part a car with a buttoned-up, Teutonic demeanor. Throughout the car one finds original factory and service applied decals and markings, further speaking to this cars originality. The iconic RS alloy wheels appears unmarked, and the car retains its original matching numbers engine.

With a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche, the 993 Carrera RS also carries a correct set of manuals, Porsche radio, jack, spare wheel and tool set. The odometer reading of 28,973 kilometers (18,002 miles) at the time of cataloging is indeed believed to be the distance this highly original Porsche has traveled since new. This 993 Carrera RS 3.8 occupies a nice middle ground with both the street-oriented comfort options and race track readiness. A new owner should be able to easily find purpose with the car doing either, and pride her or himself with owning a limited-production, highly sought-after Porsche.

It should be noted that the car was imported under show and display laws, as the vehicle was originally not intended to be sold in the U.S. market. While this makes the car an exceedingly rare sight on the road stateside, new owners will have to apply and be granted Show and Display Status with the NHTSA. This is subject to change once the car hits its quarter century in 2020. The car is offered on a Texas title.
