911 RS America
Though many see the 1973 Porsche Carrera RS as the quintessential Porsche RS, the iconic badge dates back to 1957, six years before the original 911 was launched with the 718 RSK open wheel race car that went on to win the 1958 and 1959 European Hill Climb Championship. Thirty one years after the first RennSport, saw the return of the Carrera RS with the 964-generation 911, the first redesigned 911 since 1963. Initially Porsche felt the car's aggressive tuning was not suited to the American market, but by 1993 Porsche had decided to build a limited amount of US-legal version dubbed RS America. With only 701 RS Americas built, Lusso Fine Motorcars is pleased to present this immaculate all original and well documented Polar Silver Metallic 1993 Porsche 911 RS America.
Exterior. This RS America, assembled on August 21st of 1992 was originally ordered in Polar Silver Metallic which was one of two optional metallic colors available for The RS. The seventeen-inch light alloy Turbo design wheels, are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tires that have great tread depth. This Porsche's 964 body and paint are in phenomenal condition for being 23 years old.
Interior. The interior of this RS America consists of black leatherette with corduroy inserts with blue seat belts and door straps that came with the Polar Silver exterior. Driver comfort features were initially minimized on the RS, but a few items were offered as options such as AM/FM radio with cassette player, Air conditioner with full climate control, and Electric sliding sunroof which this Porsche all has and function perfectly. The interior condition is astounding and is a perfect example of how well maintained this RS is.
Performance. This RS Americas 247Hp 3.6L Flat-six engine mated to the close ratio 5 speed gearbox does not skip a beat and has been religiously serviced throughout its 50k original miles. The neutral handling comes from the M030 Suspension package that was standard on the RS and included Firmer Springs, shocks, a thicker sway bar from the 911 Turbo. The model did offer an option for Limited Slip Differential, but this particular Porsche was built without it. The aluminum Brembo calipers and vented rotors provide exceptional braking power, and were completely serviced at 47k miles.
The Porsche RS America was built to be a drivers car, and with only 701 built, It is becoming difficult to find examples that are frozen in time and well maintained such as this particular one. The two owner, clean car fax Porsche comes with Certificate of Authenticity, all the receipts from all the maintenance over the years. The original books, brochure, window stickers as well as both sets of keys are included.
