A highly original four-owner Porsche with just 61,000 miles on the clock.
Gooding & Company is pleased to offer the private sale of this very original and iconic 1992 Porsche 964 Carrera RS finished in the highly sought-after hue of Rubystone, or Sternrubin. With just four owners from when it was brand new, this attention-grabbing Porsche retains its original lightweight specifications and only has a hair over 61,000 miles on the clock.
To pay homage to the original Carrera RS 2.7, the Rennsport name was brought back to life and attached to the Porsche 964 Carrera model. The lightweight 964 was built strictly as a performance powerhouse, so it lacks creature comforts such as air conditioning, radio, and power windows. However, it does have a solid seam-welded chassis, a potent power plant, revised suspensions, and Recaro bucket seats.
In September of 1991, this Porsche was sold new in Wuppertal, Germany. In 1997, it was sold to its second owner, and again sold in 2005 to an English barrister. In 2017, this Porsche was traded in to a German Porsche dealer where the consignor purchased the car. The consignor, a Porsche expert, confirmed that this 964 Carrera RS is a highly original example.
Powering this Porsche is a numbers-matching 3,605cc SOHC air-cooled flat six-cylinder engine topped with Borsch electronic fuel injection that generates an impressive 271-brake-horsepower. Power is shifted down via a numbers-matching 5-speed manual transaxle, and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes bring everything to a halt with ease. Handling is provided by a 4-wheel independent suspension equipped with coil springs.
The sale of this Porsche comes with manuals, tool kit, and extensive documentation. A color such as this can only be appreciated to the fullest when seen in person, and it is the most desired out of all the 964 colors. This Porsche will make the perfect addition to any garage, so contact Gooding & Company today to get behind the wheel of this neck-breaking beauty. The car is listed at $315,000, but feel free to make an offer here.
