1973 Porsche 911RS Coupe

210 bhp, 2,687 cc SOHC air-cooled horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection, five-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with MacPherson struts, torsion bars, and an anti-roll bar; independent rear suspension with transverse torsion bars, tubular shock absorbers, and an anti-roll bar; and four-wheel disc brakes.

One of the most desirable Porsches ever produced, the 1973 911 Carrera RS was built to allow Porsche to continue its success in motorsport following the retirement of the 917. The goal was to prepare an all-out campaign in the new European Grand Touring Championship Group 5 with a 911-based model called the RSR. To meet the FIA's production requirements, Porsche would have to construct at least 500 examples of a Group 4-legal model with a 2.7-litre engine that could be enlarged to the Group 5 maximum of 3.0 litres. Using the 911 S as a starting point, the Carrera RS boasted numerous changes in an effort to reduce weight and add power. Weighing just 2,370 pounds, the Carrera RS boasted a top speed of 150 mph and a 0–60 mph time of just 5.5 seconds.

One of the highly desirable, first 500 Carrera RS examples built, chassis number 9113600280 was built to M472 Touring specification and is finished in Jade Green. Built in December of 1972, it was outfitted with Recaro sport seats with head rests, seat belts, and a retractable antenna loudspeaker and electric windows. A motorsport icon, the Carrera RS is considered by many to be the greatest 911 of all time. Following a complete restoration to original specifications, this example surely will not disappoint.

This first series 1973 RS (#280) was restored cosmetically by Scott St. Jean in 2010. During the same time, Scott Hendry (Scott's Independent) performed a complete mechanical restoration. Once complete, the car was featured in 2011 Werks Reunion in the chronological display of the 911 cars. In 20, it was entered in the San Marino Concours in 2012 and won first place in the Porsche 911 class. Most recently, the car took first place honors at the 2017 edition of the Quail Motorsports Gathering in Carmel.
