    '. . . According to the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this matching numbers Carrera RS example was built to M472 Touring specification, originally finished in Grand Prix White with Blue Lettering/2201 and trimmed with Black Leatherette/12 interior, the car was delivered to the first owner in Germany. The Porsche CoA indicates this RS was optioned from the factory with headrests, a Blaupunkt Radio ‘Frankfurt’, Additional Rear Apron, and Pirelli Tires, all features which it retains today. From 2014 - 2015, the car was treated to extensive and meticulous restoration, tending to both cosmetic and mechanical aspects with attention to detail and authenticity, benefiting from a particularly careful and expert rebuild of the original engine. Having completed the restoration, the current owner was pleased to return home from the 2018 Carmel Concours on the Avenue with a First in Class. He also displayed the car at The Quail Motorsports Gathering in 2017.

    The current owner purchased the car from well-known and respected Porsche expert, Canepa. Already well documented with the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, additionally confirming matching numbers as documented in the definitive Konradsheim/Gruber “Carrera RS” book, and supported by two large binders of photographs and mechanical records, the car underwent further restoration including a documented rebuild of the engine under the direction of Kjeld Christensen, VP and Director of the “Werks” shops. The engine was completely disassembled and a comprehensive rebuild was performed while the engine was out, tending to all mechanical aspects while addressing all new correct factory finishes. The gearbox was also removed and the clutch and flywheel were removed and replaced. Records total over $25,000.00 for just a portion of this mechanical work. During the restoration process, extensive work was performed on the suspension of the car including new control arms and bushings, re-indexing torsion bars for proper ride height, and a four-wheel custom alignment (specifications on file). At this time the brakes and lines were also replaced as needed including rebuilding the front calipers.

    The car was also treated to a fresh interior from Autos International, Inc. including recovering the dashboard and fabricating a new correct speaker grille. At this time, the speedometer, tachometer, oil temp, fuel, and clock instruments were restored by Palo Alto Speedometer and installed in the new dash. Continued interior work included covering the rear seats, garnish rails, new jump seat straps, and other components with correct German vinyl per original specifications. The trunk set was also replaced with correct German Perlon. In short, every aspect of the car was included in the restoration, both above and below, and the resulting car is exceptional

    This 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS is one of 1,580 examples produced and is finished in Grand Prix White with blue exterior trim over a black leatherette interior. The current owner purchased the car in 2013 and subsequently commissioned a cosmetic and mechanical refurbishment. Work conducted by PBR Restorations of Crockett, California in 2014 and 2015 included a rebuild of the numbers-matching 2.7-liter flat-six, as well as an interior freshening. A repaint in the factory color combination was also performed. The car retains its original Type 915 five-speed manual transaxle and factory options, including corduroy seats with headrests, a Blaupunkt stereo, and stainless steel muffler skirt. The car won first in class at the 2018 Carmel Concours on the Avenue and was displayed at The Quail Motorsports Gathering in 2017. This Carrera RS is now offered on dealer consignment with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, refurbishment records, a tool kit, factory literature, and a clean California title.

    Back on BaT . . .

    '. . . The car won first in class at the 2018 Carmel Concours on the Avenue and was displayed at The Quail Motorsports Gathering in 2017. It was sold on BaT in July 2019, though the winning bidder found that he did not enjoy driving an old Porsche and subsequently traded the car into the selling dealership in September 2019 for a new McLaren . . .'
