A lightweight performance model born from the Carrera Cup racing series, the Porsche 964 Carrera RS was produced in limited quantities for the European market featuring a stiffened chassis, increased engine output, shorter gear ratios, unassisted steering, and a special seam-welded bodyshell. This 1992 example comes finished in a classic Guards Red over a Black interior with Pebble Gray inserts. The seller states that the RS was originally delivered to Dusseldorf, Germany in late 1991 and was eventually imported to the United States in April 2019 by an Alabama collector, who later sold it to its current seller. Reported to have been thoroughly inspected and accompanied by a related invoice, this Carrera RS was previously listed on PCARMARKET and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Illinois while showing approximately 57k kilometers (35k miles) on the odometer.
This RS is finished in Guards Red (84A) and features European-spec side marker lights and bumpers. The RS shares the bodyshell of the standard Carrera 2 with weight-saving revisions including a sunroof delete, fog light delete, an aluminum front bonnet, thinner glass windows, and special seam-welded panels. It rides on factory magnesium 17" Cup wheels dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires from 2018 and 2021. The seller notes some signs of wear on the hood and front bumper, some minor paint imperfections, and possible touch-up paintwork beneath one of the windshield wipers. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The spartan interior of the Carrera RS came from the factory without sound-deadening material, rear seats, airbags, power accessories, air conditioning, a radio, or a sunroof. It features a pair of black racing-style bucket seats with grey and white inserts, lightweight carpeting, and lightweight door panels with pull straps and manual window cranks. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.
The Carrera RS is powered by a special version of the 964’s 3.6-liter M64 engine featuring hand-selected pistons and cylinders, solid rubber mounts, a lightweight singles mass flywheel, and revised ECU programming. Up to 260 HP is sent to the rear wheels through a close-ratio 5-speed G50 manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential. The car features unassisted rack & pinion steering and front brakes borrowed from the 911 Turbo. The seller states that the car is in good running order and a trusted automotive shop recently conducted a thorough inspection.
This sale will include a clean title, owner’s manuals, and a tool kit.
The seller would like you to know: “Hope you've enjoyed the auction and photos. This is a beautiful example of an RS car, an RS should be driven and this one can be. I debated many colors when looking for a 964, I've never wished it was anything but Guards Red. The color is beautiful and is proper for a 911. An RS feels nothing like a C2, It's hard to describe it, but once you spend some time in it you will feel it too. I replaced the 2016 Pirellis with the 2022 Michelin Pilot Sport Cups, They give great contact even when cold, and they significantly improved ride quality and feedback. An RS is a tail-happy car on cold Pirellis or Michelin Sports, but not the Cups. The car starts and drives perfectly, it received $7,000 in minor items, age-related, not worn, and been dusted and driven on occasion. Some of us treat every car we've owned as if it's going to be ours forever, this is one of those cars. Nothing to do but enjoy it.
