Footnotes

  • "It sharpens a habit for fast driving and ultimately makes for a more rewarding experience than any of today's league of exclusive dinosaur supercars. Keep your XJ220s, EB110s and Testa Rossas every time: I'd snatch the RS..." – Classic & Sportscar, April 1994.

    This 2nd Series Carrera RS in Touring specification was delivered new in Italy in April 1973 equipped with the following options: 220 (limited-slip differential); 258 (headrests left and right); 409 (sport seats), 438 (Carrera side lettering in white); 441 (power antenna and loudspeaker); and 459 (yellow H3 fog lights). A recent inspection by Porsche 2.7 RS specialists Gaby and Gert Callewaert has revealed that this RS has the correct thin steel body panels (front bonnet, roof, doors), which are found on 1st series cars but very rarely on late 2nd series cars. The chassis number stamping was found to be correct, as was the original VIN plate, while the correct tunnel strengthening (retaining its old paintwork) is in place also. Both bumpers appear original and correct. Most importantly, the correct 'secret' number is located behind the dashboard.

    Extensively restored in 2006, the Carrera was the subject of an article published in the March 2007 issue of RS magazine entitled 'Red of Pleasure'. The body has been extensively refurbished and repainted in its original and rare ex-factory red Bahia livery, it being estimated that only 40 cars were finished in this colour. The original Fuchs wheels are shod with partly worn Pirelli P6000 tyres, while the spare wheel housing contains a steel wheel without tyre. A towing ring is fitted beneath the rear bumper.

    Upholstered in a combination of fabric and chequered skai, the interior is original apart from the front seat material, while the standard instrumentation is complemented by a Becker Grand Prix radio. A cut out switch is installed beneath the dashboard on the right-hand side and there is a fire extinguisher mounted on the passenger-side floor.

    The original, matching engine crankcase (correctly stamped with the number '6630994', in good condition) accompanies the car and is bubble-wrapped for protection (the fragility of these magnesium cases is well known to RS enthusiasts and the original was changed as a precaution). Stamped with the original number, the strengthened 7R Type 911/83 engine currently fitted is of the same type and year as the original. The engine was last overhauled in 2018; the five-speed gearbox has been restored; both batteries are recent and the mechanicals are said to be in good working order. The car is currently registered in Monaco and comes with the relevant registration document and a file relating to its restoration.
