    The Jade green RS is described as :"exceptionally rare and original factory colour"
    But being an Silumin engine case makes it even more rare.

    Auction Description:

    * One of just 200 lightweight "Sport" versions.
    * Matching numbers.
    * Period racing history: 18 races traced with photographic documentation.
    * Originally owned by Italian racing driver Giorgio Taufer
    * Complete restoration 2005-2010
    * Porsche certificate of authenticity

    The Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight chassis number 9113601443 is one of the 200 lightweight versions, produced in 1973 and delivered in Italy in June of the same year; the car has always remained in Italy. The car had seven previous owners and a Group 3 racing history with the driver Giorgio Taufer, a protagonist of the S. Martino di Castrozza rally. With Taufer, the car ran the 1974-'77 seasons, hitting three overall victories and five class victories, including the GR.3 1975 and 1977 European championship stages. The restoration was made by the Melli brothers of Pentacar in Italy, a company specializing in racing Porsche; the restoration lasted five years between 2005 and 2010; since the end of the works, the car has travelled just over 2,000 km. Melli brothers reset the odometer at the end of the restoration. The car has matching numbers, and it is painted in the classic white Grand Prix colour with blue lettering and rims; the car has the characteristics of the Lightweight versions, with the lightened glasses of Glaverbel, the Recaro bucket seats with manual adjustment (with optional headrests a request), smooth door panels, no clock, glove drawer and no carpet in the interior. The bodywork has fibreglass bumpers and rubber hooks for closing the engine bonnet. In the front compartment, the carpet and all the sound-absorbing material are not present (another feature of the Lightweight). The car is equipped with the optional limited-slip differential from the Carrera 2.7 RS range; an additional engine oil cooler has been installed in the appropriate front compartment. By choice of the owner was inserted the opening mechanism of the engine hood and a double brake pump. The car comes with ASI and FIVA certificate and Porsche's certificate of origin.

    The Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight or Sport was one of the available versions of the Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS, the sports model of the 911 range presented in Paris in 1972 and the first Porsche to bear the name "Carrera". The Lightweight was identified with the code M471 and shared the mechanics of the Carrera 2.7 RS, but benefited from some changes to reduce weight, such as the fibreglass bumpers, lighter glass, the absence of rear seats and door panels; thanks to the adoption of these and other details, the weight dropped from 1,100 kg to just 960 kg, making the 2.7 RS Lightweight a thoroughbred sports car capable of reaching 245 km / h, and shooting from 0-100 km/h in just 5.4 ". The Carrera 2.7 RS had a huge commercial success; instead of the 500 units originally planned, Porsche produced 1500 units to satisfy the request, of which 200 in the "Lightweight" version. The Carrera 2.7 RS allowed Porsche to homologate the model in the GT category and collected excellent racing results in both the 2.7 and 2.8 RSR versions. The competition model derived directly from the Carrera 2.7 RS.

    Has anyone else seen a Porsche COA that looks like this? I have not. Also, besides the engine number, it is interesting to see a different paint pattern around the last 4 digits of the vin. Also, this COA shows a rear apron, but I don’t see one on the car. Am I missing anything?

    The COA is the version from mid-1980s. PCNA revived the COA after a lot of requests.

    On market I hear. M471 Sport but with that chassis number after homologation was complete possibly not “lightweight”?

    Dealer Description:

    A genuine Left-hand Drive Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight (M471) Sport, manufactured by Porsche in Stuttgart, completed at the factory in April 1973.

    One of only 200 examples built to (M471) Sport - Lightweight specification, featuring minimal body undercoating or sound-proofing, simplified lightweight trim, manually operated windows, no rear seats, Recaro bucket seats for the driver and passenger, felt carpets and rubber mats. Homologated for both Group 4 Special GT and Group 3 Standard GT production categories – the Carrera RS was designed primarily as a racing car that still retained its everyday utility.

    Chassis #1097 was delivered new in Tangerine and first registered on 24th May 1973 to Hans-Werner Schwab-Pepperhoff of Essen, Germany, who kept the car for some twenty-five years (German Fahrzeugbrief on file). After some years of use, he had the car re-painted in Grand Prix White and is said to have then kept the car in his private museum where it became little used, before eventually selling it in late 1998.

    The car was then acquired by Porsche specialist Edmond-Harris and imported to the UK and registered on 17th June 1999. It was sold to Brian Burrows, a prolific Porsche collector and enthusiast, who owned a number of Carrera RS’s. In 2004 Mr Andrew Stevens of Norfolk, then purchased the car and had its body shell re-painted back to its correct colour of Tangerine. It was then last acquired by its present owner in April 2008. UK MoT certificates (on file) since 1999 record an increase of just 4,584 kilometres to its present day odometer reading of 52,712 kms.

    Chassis #1097 retains its correct numbers-matching 2.7-litre type 911/83 engine, which was fully overhauled by us in 2015, following a timing chain slip. The chassis and productions numbers also present correctly and match factory records.
    We are pleased to offer this very well presented, perfectly set-up and excellent driving example of arguably the greatest 911 models of all.
