Footnotes

  • Evoking memories of the legendary 2.7 and 3.0-litre RS and RSR 'homologation specials' of the 1970s, in 1991 Porsche introduced the Type 964 Carrera RS, which was a lightweight variant like its illustrious forebears. It was based on the 'Carrera Cup' competition car and sold in Europe only, though there was a lower-specification 'RS America' for the United States market. There was also a Touring version that kept most of the road equipment fitted to the standard Carrera.

    The Carrera RS retained the stock 3.6-litre engine, albeit boosted in maximum output to 260bhp and equipped with a lightened flywheel for improved response. The G50/10 five-speed transmission featured closer ratios, an asymmetrical limited-slip differential and steel synchromesh, while the suspension was lowered and stiffened. For the lightweight version, the interior was stripped out completely and the power steering, power windows and seats, rear seats, air conditioning, cruise control, sound deadening material and stereo system removed. Two lightweight racing bucket seats were fitted instead.

    The lightweight's front bonnet was made of aluminium and the chassis was seam welded, while the side windows were made from thinner and lighter glass. Rounding off this radical exercise in weight reduction, the Carrera RS was equipped with 17" Cup magnesium wheels. The result was a total weight saving of around 150kg compared to the Carrera 2, transforming the RS into a faster, more agile and responsive car. Excluding America and RSR variants, only 2,051 units of the Type 964 Carrera RS were produced.

    Finished in Amethyst with black/purple leather interior, this beautiful lightweight example was first registered on 10th March 1992 by Porsche Stuttgart. Imported into the UK by marque specialists Autofarm in June 1997, the car was sold to one Alex Fenton in July 1997 at 26,482 kilometres, passing to Ed Pilnik in January 1999 at 47,400 kilometres. An MPH speedometer was fitted by Ruf UK on 5th May 1999 at 52,542 kilometres (32,649 miles). The present owner acquired the Porsche on 17th August 2000 at 47,000 miles and used the car fairly regularly until around five years ago, since when it has mostly been laid up in storage, with annual oil changes and inspections. The private vendor advises us that the body has not suffered any accidents or trips through gravel traps. The magnesium wheels are stored at moment but will be fitted for sale. Peter Tognola has looked after the Porsche for the current owner, and his service history is available. A wonderful opportunity to acquire a relatively little-used example of this very rare and collectible Porsche supercar, presented in good condition throughout.
