1992 PORSCHE 911 (964) CARRERA RS
Type 964 ("nine-six-four") is Porsche's internal code name for the 911 Carrera 2 and 911 Carrera 4 models, which were badged simply as "Carrera 2" and "Carrera 4". "964" is used by automotive publications and enthusiasts to distinguish them from other generations of the Carrera
In 1992, Porsche produced a super-lightweight, rear-wheel-drive only version of the 964 dubbed Carrera RS. It was based on Porsche's 911 "Carrera Cup". It featured a revised version of the standard engine, with an increased power output of 260bhp (194 kW; 264 PS) and lightweight flywheel coupled to the G50/10 transmission with closer ratios, asymmetrical Limited Slip Differential and steel synchromesh. A track-oriented suspension system with lower ride height, stiffer springs, shocks and adjustable stabilizer bars without power steering
A stripped-out interior devoid of power windows or seats, rear seats, air conditioning, cruise control, or a stereo system (optionally fitted) and new racing-bucket front seats were part of the package. The front luggage compartment lid was made of aluminum, the chassis was seam welded and sound deadening was deleted. Wheels were made of magnesium and the glass was thinner in the doors and rear window.
We offer here an exceptional example. Finished in Maritime Blue our car presents, in every respect, as one would wish.
The 55800 Km displayed on the odometer is impossible to reconcile with the unused appearance of the interior. The leather is fresh, supple and blemish free, while the carpet has barely seen a footprint. Door cards too are free from scuffs although they do carry speaker housing for the after-market sound system.
Externally a one word description at first glance might be “unmarked” and a very close examination indeed, in the strongest light, might reveal only very smallest of imperfections, if any!
This car is truly special. Rarely available and hotly tipped to continue to increase in value as this model has done in recent times.
