We are pleased to present this 1993 Porsche 964 RS America racecar finished in a custom Polar Silver and Lapis Blue livery. Debuted exclusively for the U.S. market as a lightweight performance-oriented 964 model, the RS America offered the ideal platform for the track, and subsequently many have been converted into purpose-built racecars. Featuring an impressive list of upgrades and performance modifications, this 1993 example has been a dedicated racecar for most of its life with a competitive history dating back to the mid 1990’s. Highlighting a recent top end engine overhaul carried out at a cost of over $20k, this race-ready RS America is the perfect choice for any demanding driver in search of their next track-day Porsche.
