While all 911s are truly brilliant cars, the best of them are born and bred in
the crucible of motorsport. And the Type 993 Carrera RS is one of those very
best. As it was based on the Carrera Cup competition car, it was specifically
conceived as a homologation special to qualify the RSR 3.8 for BPR GT3 and GT4
racing. As such, the Carrera RS was only offered to the European market, and it
never made its way stateside when new.

At its heart is the 3.8-liter flat-six engine, which boasted numerous
improvements over the earlier 3.6-liter engine, allowing the 3.8 (Type M64/20)
to produce 300 brake horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 262 foot-pounds of torque at
5,400 rpm. It was fitted with Porsche’s innovated Variocam variable-length
intake system and also featured newly designed forged pistons of a reduced
height and a relocated wrist-pin, helping to keep piston weight below the
standard 3.8-liter engine. The new engine also sported dual oil coolers and
lightened rocker arms, amongst a host of additional upgrades that heightened
the car’s performance.

Furthermore, the engineers at Stuttgart went to fanatical lengths to make the
Carrera RS as light as possible. Its weight was brought down to 1,280
kilograms, as Porsche deleted virtually everything that was unnecessary,
including central locking, radio speakers, power-adjustable seats, electric
windows and mirrors, sound insulation, air bags, the rear defroster, and even
the headliner. The Carrera RS features thinner window glass, an aluminum front
boot lid and doors, Recaro seats, and lightweight interior door panels with
traditional fabric pulls.

Mechanically, the suspension was upgraded with a front strut brace, ball-joint
front damper mounts, and adjustable anti-roll bars, with five positions for the
24-millimeter front bar and three positions for the 21-millimeter rear piece.
The Carrera RS also received a limited-slip differential, the same anti-lock
braking system as the 993 Turbo, and ABS traction control.

This Carrera RS was finished new in Porsche’s iconic Polar Silver over a black
leather interior and was delivered new to Japan. It is clear that its original
owner wanted to enjoy his new Porsche on the street, as it was equipped from
new with optional electric windows, air conditioning, and front airbags.
Although its earliest history is not known, the car was imported to  Canada
from Japan in 2014 and has complete service stamps since new.

Cosmetically, the car is in spectacular condition and has clearly been well
cared for its entire life. It has the factory optional Club Sport rear spoiler
and front splitter, it presents beautifully and exhibits few flaws throughout.
Having been driven 33,775 kilometers (20,350 miles) the interior presents just
as well, as it has been equally well maintained.


911s have been quickly gaining momentum in the market, the 993 remains the most
promising model for future appreciation as a collectible. As the final
iteration of the air-cooled 911, this generation is lauded for its overall
driving dynamics and character, with distinct linage in design to the earliest

The Carrera RS is not only the most exciting to drive but also perhaps the most
collectible, as it is the rarest and most focused iteration of the platform,
with just over 1,000 examples built, of which none were originally imported to
the U.S. Today, very few 993 Carrera RS have made their way to the North
America and most of those are kept out of sight in private collections.

As prices are certain to rise and prime examples become increasingly difficult
to source, this Carrera RS would be an astute acquisition for any Porschephile,
and it is perhaps the purest way to sample the marque’s last air-cooled 911.
With a definitive link to the iconic Carrera RS 2.7 of 1973, the 993 Carrera RS
is indeed the final air-cooled RS model and the final link in a series of
brilliant 911s. Its heritage is instantly discernable the moment one steps
behind the wheel, and much like the Carrera RS 2.7, it will not disappoint on
either road or track.

This vehicle is located in Canada. The buyer is responsible for any duties, taxes and modifications required to import the vehicle into their home Country.
