The 911 Carrera RS 3.6 was introduced by Porsche in 1992 and was developed specifically for the European market as a 'track-ready' lightweight version of the Carrera 2. Whilst the RS did not look substantially different from other top-end 911s, Porsche engineers utilised the simple and time-honored motorsports philosophy of "reduce weight, add power" to produce the most dynamic 911 since the original Carrera RS in 1973. Porsche went to great lengths to lighten the 964RS by nearly 175 kilograms. Aluminium was used for the doors and bonnet, and thinner glass was used for the side and rear windows. Inside, Porsche disposed of the 911's usual luxuries, including its rear seats, power windows, electronically adjustable front seats, and front armrests. They also chose to forgo the power steering, resulting in greater steering interaction and feedback for the driver. Thanks to the use of a lightweight, single-mass, flywheel, the Carrera RS enjoyed a healthy boost in power, as well as making the 3.6-litre flat six considerably more throttle-responsive than the standard unit in the Carrera 2. With its narrow body, and lack of a rear spoiler, the elegant and powerful type 964 is amongst the most sought-after modern non-turbocharged 911 variants. This particular Porsche 911 (964) Carrera RS was delivered and first registered in Germany on 4th November 1991, according to the Fahrzeugbrief - the German registration document included in the file. Finished in Amethyst Purple Metallic with triple-colour seat inlays and black carpets throughout, the car was supplied by Max Moritz Porsche to Germany's leading Tuning Magazine and became immediately infamous after engine upgrades by the renowned German tuner, Rolf Heidi, which included a supercharger and resulted in an output of around 462 bhp! Magazine articles at the time showed the car accelerated from 0-100mph in mere 8 seconds. The car was enjoyed by another owner in Germany before it was purchased by our vendor in 2004 and registered with the DVLA in the UK. After some time driving the car in its modified configuration, it was decided that it would be best to return it to its standard specification, and respected RS specialist, Ninemeister was commissioned to source and build a series-correct engine, for which there is a bill in the file. Maintained by a qualified Porsche mechanic throughout, 2012 saw the addition of Powerflex bushes and a complete setup by one of Britain's most acknowledged chassis tuning experts, Chris Franklin at Center Gravity, Atherstone. Although the car has spent most of its time in the UK in professional storage and infrequently used, the history file does include many maintenance invoices. This sparkling RS is supplied with a UK V5c, an MOT until 20th September 2018, the original spare wheel, tools, and jack, along with the service book and handbook. Now showing only 33,186km on the odometer, this is a superb example of the amazing 964RS, the spiritual successor to the legendary 2.7RS.
