1973 Porsche 911 Carerra RS 2.7 Touring

Published By

Highly sought-after, rarely seen in person, the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Touring car is spectacular. As one of the most recognizable Porsche vehicles ever made, the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 is truly a masterpiece.

After the retirement of the 917, Porsche designed the Carrera RS 2.7 for Championship Group 5 racing. After completion, the RS weighed 2,370 pounds and could go 0 to 60 miles-per-hour in 5.5 seconds. The vision was a success. 

With just 500 total vehicles produced, unfortunately, getting your hands on one is not easy. This particular example of the 911 Carrera RS may be one of the finest around. Currently, A&S has it listed for sale. As an all-original numbers-matching Porsche, spectacles like these are hard to find. 

As a special order option from Porsche, this 1973 Carrera comes with the iconic Grand Prix White featuring red lettering exterior finish. It was then re-painted in 1990. Ordered with many additional great options, this Porsche also features an electric sliding sunroof, which was not exactly common for the German market in 1973.

Throughout its lifetime, this Porsche has been properly stored and cared for. Over the years, there have been many parts repaired, replaced, and rebuilt. However, it still maintains its factory specifications. 

A litany of documentation comes with the sale of the 1973 Carrera RS, including a full 2018 Deuschle report. The Auxietre Schmidt website includes many great photos of this original 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Touring. 

A special opportunity to own a true collectors car as pristine as this Porsche Carrera RS is about as good as it gets. Pricing is available upon request. Contact Auxietre Schmidt for more details. Don’t let this beautiful vintage Porsche slip away.
