Rare Porsche 911 up for sale

Published 19 September 2017

A 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Touring – one of only 11 made – is heading to auction. The 911 (964) is one of only six UK right-hand drive versions. It will go under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions' Porsche Sale on 21 October and could fetch between £185,000 and £210,000.

The 964 911 RS was created to homologate the model for the Porsche Carrera Cup race series. Two versions were available: the lightweight Sport and the Touring.

The Sport version boasted a stripped out interior, while the Touring was more refined and comfortable, but retained all the performance. It uses a 3.6-litre air-cooled engine, has lowered and stiffened suspension, plus uprated brakes from the Turbo.

Finished in black with a black interior, the 911 RST features Sport leather seats with triple colour inlays, a top tinted windscreen and a sunroof.

Early in its life, the car had the catalytic converter removed and was fitted with a performance chip. The resulting dyno test printout showed 278.8bhp at 5909rpm.

The car’s history file includes a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, membership details of the 964 RS Register, old MoT certificates and tax discs, service invoices, and period road test articles.

‘This is a very special Porsche, the rarest of the rare,’ declares Guy Lees-Milne, general manager of Silverstone Auctions. ‘These cars are actively sought after by serious Porsche collectors all over the world, and this is a truly superb example.’

Sitting on unique magnesium 17-inch wheels and low-profile Michelin N3 tyres, the all-black Porsche 911 RST was originally manufactured in 1992, but found its first owner at JCT Brooklands in September 1993. The car comes with the numberplate C2 RST.
