Rare lightweight Porsche 911 RS up for grabs

Published 04 October 2016

A rare lightweight Porsche 911 will go under the hammer later this month. The 1991 Porsche 911 (964) Carrera RS NGT – often touted as one of the best driving 911s of the era – is part of Silverstone Auctions’ Porsche Sale on Sunday, 15 October.

It boasts a factory-stripped blank interior and roll cage, and epitomises Porsche racing as the more radical version of the 964 Carrera RS. This European specification example, finished in the striking colour of Maritime Blue, is chassis number 76 of just 290 examples created. It was first registered on 12 December, 1991, supplied new by Porsche in Stuttgart.

The car remained in Germany until 2010 having had just three owners, before being exported to its new owner in Japan. The Porsche was recently imported into the UK with all duties and taxes paid.

‘This is a superb example indeed and would make a fine addition to any Porsche collection,’ said Nick Whale, managing director of Silverstone Auctions. ‘The 964 is often regarded as the all-encompassing true drivers’ 911, and there can be no doubt then that this Carrera RS in NGT specification is one of the most driver-focused and rewarding Porsches you will ever find.’

The specification includes Nomex Recaro bucket seats, a welded roll cage, an Alcantara Momo steering wheel and four-point harnesses, perfectly suited to the harder and more track-focused design that make the car so popular for events like the Nurburgring 24Hrs.

The car has 25,000 miles on the clock. Inside, the cabin is in good condition with a very clean and tidy engine bay. Present in the history file are the original handbook and the original dealer-supplied maintenance book, complete with the options code sticker and eight German service stamps, as well as numerous German documents and invoices from Porsche and Porsche specialists further verifying the service history.

If you want to buy it, expect to pay between £135,000 and £155,000. To find out more about the 1991 Porsche 911 (964) Carrera RS NGT visit silverstoneauctions.com.
