PcarMarket Is Selling The Purest Expression of an Air-Cooled Porsche 964-The Carrera RS

This is the essence of a Porsche sports car.

A remarkable 1992 Porsche 964 Carrera RS, resplendent in its rare Amethyst Metallic finish, is currently captivating Porsche enthusiasts. Originating from Switzerland, this automotive masterpiece, with its VIN WP0ZZZ96ZNS490368, boasts a mileage of 87,500km. As a nod to its illustrious predecessor, the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7, the 964 Carrera RS was crafted primarily for the European market, embodying the essence of lightweight, high-performance engineering.

This specific Carrera RS, a testament to Porsche’s racing heritage, was birthed from the adrenaline-fueled Carrera Cup race series. With only two owners since its original delivery in Switzerland, the vehicle's meticulous maintenance is documented in its original service booklet, revealing a history of diligent care.

The Carrera RS distinguishes itself with a host of modifications aimed at reducing weight and enhancing performance. These include a sunroof delete, fog light deletes, an aluminum front bonnet, and thinner glass windows, coupled with special seam-welded panels. This example rides on factory lightweight magnesium 17” Cup Design wheels, fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. The front bumper was previously refinished, yet all body panels remain original, retaining their factory stampings.

Inside, the Carrera RS eschews luxury for function. The sparse interior excludes rear seats, airbags, air conditioning, a radio, power windows, and sound-deadening material. Basic door panels feature manual window cranks, door lock knobs, and cloth pull straps. The black leather Recaro bucket seats are adorned with purple multi-tone centers and Rubystone Red seatbelts, adding a dash of color to the otherwise austere cabin.

At its heart is a special version of the 964 Carrera’s 3.6-liter M64 engine. This power unit, producing 260 HP, benefits from hand-selected pistons and cylinders, solid rubber mounts, a lightweight single-mass flywheel, and revised ECU programming. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a close-ratio 5-speed G50 manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential. Borrowing brakes from the 911 Turbo and featuring unassisted rack and pinion steering, this Carrera RS also includes a lower and stiffer suspension compared to the standard Carrera 2.

This exceptional 1992 Porsche 964 Carrera RS is accompanied by owner’s manuals, a window sticker, a toolkit, an air pump, a car cover, a battery charger, some documentation, and a clean title. It stands as a unique opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts to own a slice of Porsche's illustrious racing legacy, wrapped in an exquisite and rare color scheme.
