This fine car art is telling beautifully the amazing story of Porsche 911 Carrera RS. Dedicated to one of the most loved and desirable 911 versions of them all, this artwork is just a nice reminder of the significance of this particular Porsche car.
The first Porsche 911 Carrera RS has appeared in 1973, just a few years after the incredibly rare 911R. The RS designation means Rennsport or Race Sport in German and was the first sports 911 freely available at the market. It was more powerful than 911S and had a larger, 2.7-liter engine capable of 210 hp with Bosch mechanical fuel injection. The Carrera RS stood out with larger rear wheels and fenders, stronger brakes, stiffened suspension and the now legendary ducktail rear spoiler. The car weighed just 1075 kg in Touring form and about 100 less in a Sport Lightweight edition.
Porsche produced 500 vehicles and they were just enough for FIA Group 4 homologation. Well, the demand was high and Porsche answered by increasing the price and building 1080 more 911 Carrera RS. 49 of them were fitted with 3.0 engines producing 300 hp.
Porsche 911 Carrera RS was the archetypal driver`s car
It was born because of fast motoring and Carrera RS became a legend because it was the missing link between ordinary roads and the racing track. With an air-cooled boxer engine and Fuchs wheels, this car was and probably still is, the archetypal driver`s car. Probably this explains clearly why their prices hit the sky during the past few decades with a rise of 669%. It seems that the ducktail Porsche was, and probably still is, a great investment. Well, there are huge expectations that the classic cars market is nothing less than a bubble waiting to burst. We`ll see whether, and when, if at all.
