PORSCHE 911 Carrera 2,7 RS For sale

Description

This magnificient example chassis 1354 has originally been built as a Touring in 1973 and had two owners in Germany until it was sold in 1989 to a very well known collector in Belgium. Being extremely demanding on the quality of his cars he brought the Carrera RS to Ruf Automobiles in 1990 to receive a nut and bolt restoration which lasted two years. During the process the car was modified into Lightweight specifications. The restoration file shows how deep was the work carried on and only a handful of 911s received a premium quality restoration as to this one. 1354 only ran 7000km since and is in immaculate condition, 20 years on it is a real tribute to the work performed at RUF. The car was slightly upgraded on the suspension and engine, this is the very best driving 2,7RS we ever drove. This is a real opportunity to acquire a RUF restored and enhanced Carrera RS with all the surrounding driving pleasure and top quality to expect from them.

Car located in Luxembourg in our showroom viewing by appointment only.

Model history

After a massive success in Sport Prototype with the 917, Porsche had to retire in the end of 1971 due to a change of rules. There was nothing more to prove on that side and Porsche decided then to develop a racing version of the 911 to promote the brand. In 1972 the Motorsport department designed a race car called 2.8 RSR who incorporated a lot of technology from the 917. However in order to match with the FIA requirements it was required to build 400 cars to get the Group 4 homologation, then the RS appeared. Porsche was surprised with the demand and actually built more than 1500 example over 1973. The car was a fantastic machine in back 1973, a very safe and high performance car.
