1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 (F-Model) is for sale

It all started back in 1972 when the Carrera RS 2.7 had its premiere and was named after the 356 Carrera while the RS (Rennsport) was developed to meet the homologation requirements in motorsport. It was produced until 1974 and only 1,580 cars left the production lines. Over time, it became an indispensable collector’s car and acquired the status of a legend. One such example, the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 (F-Model) is for sale.

This Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 is powered by a naturally aspirated 2.7L flat 6-cylinder engine with 210 hp (150 kW) and 188 lb-ft (255 Nm) of torque. It reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 152 mph (245 km/h). It weighs only 960 kg, which is less than the 911 model. The reason is the regulations that the car had to meet in terms of sports characteristics, which meant reducing the weight below 1000 kg. This was achieved by using thin steel and thinner glass in the car’s construction.

It was designed with a larger body that allowed more space for a larger engine compared to the previous 911 models. This allowed the engineers to install new suspension, wider rear wheels and duck tail for better dynamics and greater downforce. It is mounted on 185 / 70VR15 front and 215 / 60VR15 rear tires.

This car is finished in Olive shade over black interior, and is in excellent condition. There is no information about the previous owners, but it is surprising that the car has rarely been driven as it has only 6,041 miles (9,722 km) on the odometer.

When it comes to price, this Carrera RS 2.7 costs $999,995 USD.
