Following the concept of the Carrera RS sports model offered in Europe, Porsche developed the RS America as a lightweight driver-focused 964 exclusively for the North American market. Based on the Carrera 2, the RS America equips a lightweight interior, unassisted steering, and sports suspension along with a unique whaletail spoiler. This 1993 example is one of 701 produced in total and comes finished in Guards Red with a factory optional limited-slip differential, electric sunroof, and air conditioning. The car is supported by ownership history dating back to 1997 and was modified with the intention of entering PCA track events by the previous caretaker including Bilstein coilovers, 993 Turbo brakes, and full performance exhaust system. Showing approximately 38k miles, this rare and sparingly driven RS America is now being offered for auction out of Virginia.
This 964 is finished in Guards Red with “RS” logos on the rear quarters, a front spoiler lip, and Cup-style air ducts in the front bumper. The RS America uses a fixed lightweight whaletail in favor of the standard 964’s electrically operated spoiler. This example rides on 18” Speedline for Porsche 3-piece wheels which have been refurbished and paired with “RS” logo center caps. The seller states the passenger door and rear bumper were previously refinished and that a layer of original clear paint protection film was recently removed from the front end. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The minimalist black interior of the RS America includes cloth-trimmed Sport Seats, RS-style door panels, thinner carpeting, and a storage compartment in place of the rear seats for weight savings. This example came with a factory-optional electric sunroof and air conditioning system. Custom Coco floor mats have also been fitted along with an upgraded Pioneer stereo.
This RS America is powered by an air-cooled 3.6-liter flat-six engine that sends 247 HP and 228 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a G50 5-speed manual transmission and an optional limited-slip differential. Upgrades installed by the previous owner are said to include a single-mass flywheel, Turbo-spec clutch, 993 Turbo “Big Red” brakes, Bilstein PS9 coilovers, a 993 Bosch hot film airflow sensor, performance air intake, carbon fiber heater duct, a performance engine chip, and full header exhaust system complete with sport catalytic converters and heater boxes. The suspension has been corner-balanced and aligned to Cup specifications with European ride height. A recent full service is said to have been completed, and a collection of maintenance records accompanies the sale.
This sale will include maintenance records, owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a collection of original parts, and a clean title.
