What we said at the time

“You can drive a Porsche as hard as you like and you will not run out of roadholding or stability; in fact you can drive it as hard as it will go without any qualms for it feels stable At all times” (Motor Sport, 1971).

“Nothing that is desirable comes easily or cheaply and the Carrera RS is no exception, costing £6,255 all on in England, but without question, it is one of the great cars of the 1970s” (Motor Sport, 1973).
