History

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.
