The early 911 is an iconic car, of which the 2.7 RS is the most recognisable due to its aerodynamic ducktail. Due to its dynamic qualities and very limited production, the Porsche Carrera RS 2.7 has always been highly sought after. Today, this model is considered the most sought-after air-cooled 911.

Our Porsche 911 2.7 Carrera RS was delivered new in Italy in February 1973. Out of only 1580 produced, it is one of the early chassis numbers from the second series which means it features the thin body panels. It was ordered with the Touring option, bringing back some of the noise reduction, upholstery and comfort. It also has some coveted factory options such as electric windows, Recaro sports seats and the highly sought-after limited slip differential. Finished in 'light yellow' with black leather interior, it stands out like no other on the road and makes its mark wherever it goes.

In 1988, this car was imported to the UK from Italy and, like most Carrera Rs'es, ended up in an exceptional collection. The owner was known for always being very meticulous with his cars and this 2.7 RS is no exception. An odometer record was kept and all important documents including regular maintenance and all invoices were carefully kept in a thick folder full of history.

This 2.7 RS exceeds all expectations, unlike many others that were restored here and there, whether properly or not, this example has remained free of total restoration. The bodywork is in good condition as is the interior. Once you get behind the wheel, you immediately understand why this is the most sought-after 911 on the market. The sound, acceleration and handling are second to none. The Flat 6 air-cooled engine produces 210 hp and weighing just 1093kg, the Five-speed gearbox takes you from 0-100 in 6.3 seconds

We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer such an original and unblemished example of what has become the most recognised and sought-after 911 of all. The Carrera RS remains not only an excellent car to drive, but also qualifies for almost every historical event imaginable these days, while its value among collectors and enthusiasts continues to rise.
