We are pleased to present this 1992 Porsche 964 Carrera RS finished in Amethyst Metallic over a lightweight black interior with multicolor hardback sport seats. Often regarded as one of the greatest Porsche 911’s of all time, the 964 Carrera RS made its debut as a lightweight, track oriented-version of the Carrera 2, devoid of any heavy or unnecessary equipment. Finished in the rare color of Amethyst Metallic, this example is reported to have been delivered new in Belgium where it is said to have remained before making its way to the U.K. in 2001, and then eventually the U.S. in 2019. With some major service recently carried out by a reputable specialist, this 964 RS makes the perfect high-quality driver with any passionate enthusiast. It is now being offered by its seller in Massachusetts accompanied by historical documentation and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
The rarely seen Amethyst Metallic paint on this 964 is reported to be in superb condition with some areas professionally refinished to maintain excellent cosmetic standards. A collection of detailed images is provided in the photo gallery along with paint meter readings. The RS shares the body of the standard Carrera 2 but with subtle revisions including a sunroof delete, lightweight magnesium Cup 1 wheels, and clear lens inserts for the front fog light cutouts. European side marker lights are also standard on the RS along with an aluminum front bonnet.
The lightweight design of the RS is most evident in the cabin. The black interior features lightweight carpeting, an air conditioning and radio delete, a rear seat delete, thinner glass, basic door panels with pull straps, manually operated windows, and hardback Recaro sport bucket seats with centers upholstered in Rubystone, Aubergine, and Grey Violet leather. Records show that the original odometer was replaced with an MPH unit in 2006 before the original odometer was reinstalled in 2009. Today, the car is said to have covered approximately 44,700 miles. It is worth noting that the odometer was removed in 2005 at 38,355km for repair before a replacement MPH unit was installed and used for just under 9,300 miles. The original odometer was repaired and re-fitted in 2009 as is documented in providing correspondence from the previous owner. The current reading shows 57,111 (35487 miles).
Power comes from a type M64/03 3.6L engine which is a revised version of the flat-six found in the standard Carrera 2. 260 HP is delivered to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed G50/10 manual transmission which offers closer gear ratios, steel synchros, and a limited slip differential. Other unique performance features include standard rack and pinion steering, stiffer engine mounts, and a stiffer track-oriented suspension setup with lowered ride height and adjustable stabilizer bars. A full engine rebuild is said to have been performed in 2013 at 50k kilometers and a comprehensive service was recently carried out at European Performance Engineering. This RS is said to drive beautifully with service documentation dating back to new. Invoices from the recent service are provided for reference in the photo gallery along with a previous owner's service history breakdown.
This sale will include a set of 2 keys, the original warranty card, the original maintenance booklet, service records, U.K. MOT certificates, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. If you are a passionate driver in search of the ultimate air-cooled experience, this stunning Amethyst Metallic RS makes the perfect choice.
