This spectacular Porsche 2.7 Carrera RS is the epitome of a truly enthralling dual-sports car. Despite the many variations and incarnations of the 911, the aerodynamic ducktail makes the 2.7 RS the best of all.
The initial run of the RS, a testing-the-water-quantity of 500 sold out immediately, and so another 1,090 were later commissioned to meet demand. The rarity in number undoubtedly adds to the appeal of the RS, yet the sensational ‘Racing Sport’ models achieved great success on the track in their own right. Weighing just 975kg and possessing a top speed of 150mph, the RS was raced across almost every division and achieved notable wins at the Targa Florio, the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring.
This specific Grand Prix White model with pristine blue lettering and colour coordinated wheels finds itself under the guidance of DK Engineering with a guide price of £595,000. Beyond the nostalgic racing paintwork, the car is fitted with the customary factory options that include a heated rear, windows, sports seats and an electric sliding roof. Originally completed in 1973, the car has since completed an extensive restoration and been kept in superb condition, both mechanically and aesthetically, ever since. Complete with matching numbers, engine and gearbox original to the car, this Porsche 2.7 Carrera RS represents not only one of the finest, but one of the rarest German machines of all time.
