    "1973 Porsche Factory RS Carrera in Concours Condition.

    1973 Porsche RS Serial #9113600492. One of the First Series Lightweight cars converted to touring specifications prior to leaving the Porsche Factory.

    This car was a bare tub complete 100% rotisseries concours restoration performed by world famous Scott St. Peter of Carrera 6 in Pasadena, Ca. This car was his personal project so it was subject to the best and most original restoration possible. Every component on the car was perfected to as original and in concours condition.
    He reconverted the car to its original l.w. specs per its homologation requirements utilizing only factory components. Even the rare RS Lightweight seats are original and perfect. The front and rear Lightweight bumpers are factory original.

    The Numbers:
    ē vin #9113600492
    ē Engine #6630507
    ē Transmission #7830468

    **Color: Grand Prix White with Green graphics

    **Mileage 500 miles since restoration.

    ** Featured in Excellence Magazine Feb'07.

    The engine is a factory RS engine that was renumbered (at the factory?) with the correct original motor number - done with proper factory stamps- This car is so well done the motor is not an issue and the price is circa $70,000.00 less expensive than a recent comparable car so the price is adjusted accordingly.
    All tools, books and services. Everything is brand new on the car with less than 500 miles since its concours rotisserie restoration. Again, all factory original lightweight parts were used during the restoration. This is one of the finest RS Carreras available on the market today. It is priced according to market conditions. This car is out of the David Mohlman collection.
    .

    Carrera RS Background
    The Carrera name was reintroduced from the 356 Carrera which had itself been named after Porsche's victories in the Carrera Pan-American races in Mexico in the 1950s. The RS was built so that Porsche could race it in the FIAís Group 4, which demanded that a certain minimum number of production cars were made. Compared with a standard 911S, the Carrera 2.7 RS had a larger engine (2687 cc) developing 210 HP (154 kW) with MFI, revised and stiffened suspension, a "ducktail" rear spoiler, larger brakes, wider rear wheels and rear wings. In RS Touring form it weighed 1075 kg (2370 lb), in Sport Lightweight form it was about 100 kg (220 lb) lighter, the saving coming from the thin-gauge steel used for parts of the body shell and also the use of thinner glass. In total, 1580 were made, comfortably exceeding the 500 that had to be made to qualify for the vital FIA Group 4 class.

    Carrera production started with chassis number 9113600011 (produced in 04/1972) till 9113601590 (produced in 07/1973). There were only 1580 original Carrera Rs's divided in roughly three production batches of 500 each. Of those 17 were homologation specials, 200 were Sports versions with M 471 code, 1308 were touring version with M 472 code, and 55 were racing specials coded M 491."

    "This is an original example of a 70ís RS. It is a great driver and lots of fun while also being highly prized by collectors and sought after internationally by sports car enthusiasts of all stripes. A classic!

    The Carrera RS is one of the most famous and most desirable Porsche models ever built, and over the years come to be regarded as one of the finest sports cars to emerge from the 1970ís. It was designed with ambivalence very much in mind; the engineer wanted a car that could be successfully used on the race track, yet which at a momentís notice and with no modifications could be equally used for shopping or long distance travel. This example was restored in the late 1980ís and modified to be the light weight racing version with engine number 9011061015R."

    New text:

    "With only 18,714 kilometers driven, this rare and very low mileage 1973 Porsche Carrera RS comes with original Dutch registration papers and documentation. The VIN 9113600893 matches the engine number of 9011061015R referenced in the documentation. The chassis number, engine number and white with blue accent paint livery were independently verified by Coys of London and Automotive Restorations. Porsche built 1,590 Carrera RS 2.7 models between 1972-1973. This is an original Touring model that was converted by a Porsche Dealer in Holland into Lightweight specifications. Fastidiously maintained by a loving owner through Automotive Restorations, this car wants for nothing mechanically and has been shown at a variety of Concours events since arriving in the U.S. in the early 1990's. Carrera RS's are among the most sought after and desirable Porsche's ever built and also provide an exhilerating driving experience and iconic looks. Voted among the 25 most important cars by Automobile Magazine, Carrera RS Porsche's combine collectibility, driving excitement, ownership pride and real investment value with appreciation opportunity."

    New text and updated photos on 26-Aug-09:

    "This is an original l973 Carrera RS Touring model that was converted to lightweight specifications by a Porsche dealer in Holland using the correct Porsche lightweight factory kit. Porsche built only 1,500 examples of the famed RS Carreras between 1971-1973. Mechanically in excellent shape, this RS is particularly collectible due to its very low mileage, with only 18,714 Km logged onto its odometer. The car was acquired by its current owner from Coys of London, who documented the low mileage (please see copy of Coys description in photo section). The car was last painted in the 1980's and the paint demonstrates the familiar orange peel of paint work done to approximate the factory presentation. There are various minor finish blemishes from the car's use over the intervening 20+ years. The car is visually highly presentable and is shown in the photo section being exhibited at a recent Greenwich Concours d'Elegance. The low hours of use and mileage make for a car that will provide years of reliable driving pleasure with all the classic excitment of a period 911 RS. The fuel injected 2.7 litre boxer six-cylinder engine is strong and purposeful with an exhaust note that will excite the senses. It provides an exhilerating driving experience while also being highly prized by collectors and sought after internationally by sports car enthusiasts of all stripes."

    That car is close to the end of production and within 20 of my own RS. It would be great to know if the car has the original engine and if it is Silumin. Would there be any way possible to get a photo of the underside of the engine case? My French is poor. It would not be up to asking for such a detailed photo. Any chance you could ask?

    Many thanks
