Classic Car Overview

1996 PORSCHE 911/993 CARRERA 3.8 RS:

Introduced for the 1995 model year, Porsche released a pure lightweight model for the 911 Carrera.  Only 1,104 Carrera RS cars were produced.  None of the cars at the time were developed for sale in the USA and thus makes this offering more exclusive as having already been correctly imported.  The RS features an upgraded 3.8 liter flat 6-cylinder engine producing 300 horsepower, up from the standard 3.6 liter cars.  The goal of the RS was to make the car as light as possible.  With extraordinary measures, Porsches brought the weight down to just over 2,800 pounds, turning the RS into one of the fastest production Porsches available at the time and a true handling track weapon.  Porsche deleted virtually everything that was unnecessary including central locking, radio speakers (later added with radio), power-adjustable seats, rear seats, electric windows (added as an option), sound insulation, air bags (added as an option), the rear defroster, headlight washers, and even the headliner. The Carrera RS features thinner window glass, an aluminum front trunk and doors, Recaro seats, and lightweight interior door panels with traditional fabric pulls just like the original RS.  The RS received the larger cross drilled and ventilated discs brakes with four piston calipers shared with the 911 Turbo and limited slip differential was included as standard equipment.

This rare 3.8 RS was originally delivered in Japan.  Having been meticulously cared for from new, the car has remained in enthusiast and collector ownership for some time.  It was imported to a collection in Canada in 2014 and then sold to its previous owner/collector and long-time friend and client of Autosport Designs in 2018.  Recently traded to Autosport Designs for another limited production Porsche, this RS has been exceptionally serviced and maintained regardless of use.  Aside from the addition of the radio, the RS is completely stock and in exceptional condition throughout including the factory optioned Club Sport rear spoiler and front splitter, factory Speedline wheels and the superb Recaro sport seats.

In original and superb condition throughout with just 33,000 Km (21,000 miles), this 3.8 RS is complete with books, tools, its binder of service records and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.  A superb opportunity to own one of the rarest air-cooled Porsches and the last air-cooled RS car.  It is turn-key ready for immediate collectability and touring pleasure.
