In 1992, a whole two decades after the legendary 2.7 RS, Porsche launched a super-lightweight, rear-wheel-drive only version of its new 964 dubbed Carrera RS. It was based on Porsche’s 911 “Carrera Cup” race car and featured a revised version of the standard engine and through to today we see the RS model designation on the rears of current 911’s but never was the RS badge to make it onto the back of a Targa. The coupes inherent torsional stiffness made it a far better contender to be used as race car than the 911 targa. The replica RS market is a successful one, as visually, not much differs from the standard model in coupe form. Where the modified market become more interesting is when the buyer wants something that Porsche never actually produced. This example we have for sale started life as a standard 964 Carrera 4 Targa when its original owner at the time wanted to blend some of Porsches motorsport components with a targa body shell to create a raw RS feel but with the open top experience and security of 4-wheel drive. It has followed a similar ideology in not only having minor RS visual upgrades, notably the air ducts on the front bumper, but has also been treated to 964 RS
