1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS
In hommage to the 1973 911 Carrera RS, Porsche used the same formula to produce a lightweight version of the Carrera 2 from the race-ready Cup car known simply as the Carrera RS. Using the lightweight bits from the Cup car Porsche stripped 175 kg (386 lbs) off the car by use of aluminum doors, hood and trunk as well as a stripped out interior that removed power steering, power windows, rear seats, electronically adjustable front seats and front armrests.
The 3.6 engine got a slight boost in power and came equipped with a lightweight single-mass flywheel that weighed 12 pounds.

Auction Sales History
1992 Porsche 911 – sold for €226,480. This RS 964 is from 1992, the first year of production of the model and was sold new in Germany. It was bought by its current owner in the late 1990s, when the car had covered some 16,000 km, and had been maintained by the first owner at Porsche’s Stuttgart dealership. Real enthusiast of the brand, our collector was keen to find a model in its original “Maritim Blau” color. Demonstrating his commitment to the brand and showing a real talent for racing, it is interesting to note that he competed in the 2000s in the Carrera Cup. At that time, he sold the car to one of his close friends. Four years ago, he decided to buy it back again.
While the car had covered 66,378 km, he commissioned a major service in the garage Ferrari Imola in Bayonne. Its maintenance book is up to date and since 2005 all servicing has been done in the same facilities in Bayonne. The meter now displays 68,450 km, hardly more since the major overhaul mentioned earlier.
All maintenance bills and complete files are available. In November 2014, an expert evaluation was done. The report speaks for itself as to the condition of the body, the paint, upholstery and trim, described as in a perfect state of presentation. Mechanically, no abnormalities were found, and the report notes the absence of oil leak traces. This expert report confirms the beautiful condition of the car on offer.

1992 Porsche 911 Type 964 Carrera RS Coupé WPOZZZ96ZNS491619. The car was delivered new in Italy to its first owner on 20th May 1992. It was first serviced in Milan in September 1992 at 3,200 kilometres and only sold to its second owner in 2001. The second owner was Mr Woodhead, a Canadian expatriate living in Europe, who bought it for pleasure use during his time in Europe. He drove it mainly in Germany and the UK, only in fine weather, always keeping the car in immaculate order. Bought by the current vendor in 2014, the Carrera is presented in excellent ‘showroom’ condition, currently displaying a genuine total of only 58,000 kilometres (approximately 36,000 miles) on the odometer. Full service history is recorded in accompanying invoices for work carried out and the original stamped service booklet. The car also comes with its original owner’s manual.
