While all 911s are brilliant, the best are forged in the crucible of motorsport. Built to homologate the 3.8-liter RSR for competition in BPR GT3 and GT4 racing, the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.8 is essentially a racing car built for use on the road. At its heart is the 3.8-liter naturally aspirated Type M64/20 engine producing 296 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 262 pound-feet of torque at 5,400 rpm. Its Variocam variable-length intake system and newly designed forged pistons introduced additional weight savings over the standard 3.8-liter engine. This distinctive powerplant sports dual oil coolers, lightened rocker arms, and a host of additional performance upgrades befitting its role as a homologation special.

In addition, the gearing of its Type G50/31 six-speed manual transmission is optimized for acceleration, rather than top speed. Porsche also fitted a limited-slip differential, 993 Turbo-sourced anti-lock brakes, and ADB traction control. Immense 265/35ZR-18R tires in the rear and 225/40ZR-18 tires in the front are mounted on special 18-inch Speedline for Porsche three-piece, light-alloy wheels with magnesium centers, ensuring the vehicle offers optimal grip through corners.

The magnificent Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.8 coupe featured here is finished in gorgeous Polar Silver over Black leatherette with Grey accents. This 993 Carrera RS received a good variety of options available to purchasers, such as the re-installation of comfort essentials such as automatic air conditioning, a radio, and power windows. On the performance end, this RS received the desirable fixed Club Sport wing on the back of the car with integrated ram intakes and a deeper chin spoiler up front. Together, both elements work to increase stability at speed through extra downforce.

The Carrera RS is one of the rarest, most driver-focused iterations of the 993 platform. Just over a thousand were built in total over its production run, none of which were originally exported to the United States. Today, very few have made their way to our market, and those that have are typically kept out of sight in private collections. This attractive and well-documented 911 is now past the 25-year import restriction window and will be a rewarding acquisition for the most demanding investor, collector, or enthusiast who aspires to own one of the very best at an investment price to enjoy without limitation on US roadways.
