Viper Green with Black Lightweight Interior, 5-speed G50 gearbox, 3.4 Liter Motec Injected 6-Cylinder engine, 5,000 Miles. With just 1580 examples built, the 1973 Carrera RS are in high demand in today’s market and prices have risen drastically. Consequently, replicas built using a variety of 911’s (and even 912’s) as bases are popular, particularly since it is relatively easy to achieve the look of the original RS. This Carrera is one of the finest no expense spared RS replicas we have had the pleasure of offering. Starting with an ultra low mileage 1989 Carrera Coupe (5,000 miles - White w/Black interior), all parts sourced were new from Porsche except for ducktail that was sourced from MA Shaw. Parts utilized in conversion included: Fenders, hood, bumpers, lights and “Carrera” sidescript. The interior utilized 1994 Speedster Recaro seats and RS America style door panels. The two front seats were reupholstered in vintage hounds tooth/leather, the rear seats were deleted and a lightweight carpet set has been fitted. A Momo Steering wheel has also been installed. Mechanically the engine displacement was enlarged to 3.4 liters using forged pistons, carillo rods, billet race cams, ported/polished heads, TWM throttle bodies, Motec M48 ECU engine management, Denso crank fire ignition, SSI headers & sport muffler. The suspension was upgraded with Bilstien RSR adjustable coilovers, Eibach springs, adjustable sway bars, limited slip differential and larger 944 Turbo Front brake calipers. An exorbitant amount of money has been spent to create this 911 RS Replica. It is currently offered for a fraction of the price of an original
