Often described as the most definitive 911 ever produced by Porsche, the Carrera 2.7 RS was created as an homologation special and the initial 500 examples were sold within a week of the car’s international debut at the 1972 Paris Show. In order to satisfy the overwhelming public demand for the car an additional 1080 examples were produced and it is believed that only 117 were built in right hand drive form.
It was the first 911 to bear the RS moniker and its lean, purposeful stance was complemented with a rear boot-mounted duck-tail spoiler and extra wide rear arches. The RS was designed to do a specific job and provided a driver experience that was hard to match amongst the car's contemporaries and even today is acknowledged as being probably the best of a succession of RS models from Zuffenhausen to appear in latter decades.
With its minimalist design and without any fripperies to blunt its performance the RS's 2.7-litre flat-six powerplant developed a healthy 210 bhp which was enough to propel the lightweight body (which weighed less than 1000 kg) to 60 mph in under 6 seconds.
The right hand drive RS evocation we have here originated as a 911E and was converted to RS spec by racing driver Bob Berridge to race in the 1980's using Porsche OEM parts which were freely available at that time.
The engine is an original Porsche 2.7 RS spec engine with a 915 transmission and was preserved in that form during an extensive rebuild while under the stewardship of the current keeper who has owned the car for over ten years. The car was purchased from a Porsche collector who had converted the car back to road specification (the roll-cage had been removed) and extensive history up to that point came with the car.
Since then all maintenance has been fully documented and in the last two years the car has had extensive work involving a full mechanical and electrical restoration by Canford Classics including a full engine and gearbox rebuild.
Last year a full suspension set up with the correct Bilstein shock absorbers was installed by well-known Porsche motorsport specialists Parr Motorsport. The previous owner had the car maintained by Steve Winter at Jaz Porsche while the current owner has used Jaz Porsche, Autofarm, Canford Classics and Parr Motorsport. Evidently this car has always been serviced and maintained by credible Porsche specialists. The rear seats and seat-belts were installed by the current owner to accommodate his young children who happen to be very enthusiastic about having a ride in the car!
With genuine Carrera RS values heading far north of £500,000 this faithful evocation offers a great opportunity to experience the driving thrill of the original car at a fraction of that cost.
On sale at £99950.
Please note that this car is being marketed by ourselves on behalf of the current owner. The car is located in West London for viewings which can be arranged by appointment.

The 968 'Club Sport' or 'CS' was Porsche's attempt to appeal to track-minded enthusiasts by capitalising on the excellent chassis dynamics of the familiar 944/968 series. By lowering the car by 20 mm, tweaking the suspension and stripping off some of the 'luxury' elements of the 968 a credible 100 Kg weight-saving was achieved which allowed the CS to sprint to 60 mph in 6 seconds and then on to a
