This black over black Carrera RS was built by Porsche for the Italian market, optioned with a Limited Slip Differential, Bucket Seats, 17 Cup wheels, and a 5-speed manual transmission. During its time in Italy it was driven sparingly, evident by the extremely low mileage and spectacular condition that it is currently in.

About the 964 Carrera RS In 1992, Porsche produced a super-lightweight, rear-wheel-drive only version of the 964 dubbed Carrera RS for the European market. It was based on Porsches 911 Carrera Cup race car and harked back to the 2.7 and 3.0 RS and RSR models.
