Porsche 964 Carrera RS 1992 – SPRZEDANE

Niech Was nie zmyli kolor lakieru, to niezwykle rzadki „Rubystone Red” czyli rubinowa czerwień, a 964 Carrera RS to nie okaz dla platynowej blondynki w szpilkach… no chyba, że ma licencję wyścigową. „RS, w całej genialności technicznej najnowszej Carrery, dołożył jej brakujący poprzednikom element ekscytacji z jazdy.” czytamy w teście magazynu Performance Car. Chyba wszyscy miłośnicy marki czekali na ten element. Samochód bazujący na lekkim, wyścigowym typie Porsche z Carrera Cup, z 3.6-litrowym silnikiem, który do setki rozpędza się w 5,4 sekundy, a jego maksymalna prędkość to 260 km/h. Aby odelżyć samochód wyrzucono z niego wszystkie udogodnienia: brak tu klimatyzacji, radia, systemu głośników, mat wygłuszających, elektrycznie sterowanych szyb, a nawet klamek drzwi. 964 Carrera RS jest ukierunkowana na osiągi i według wielu nie można jej nic zarzucić, ponieważ prowadzi się bezbłędnie i daje niesamowite wyczucie wszystkiego, co dzieje się z samochodem. Kod koloru 82N/LM3B „sternrubin” przeznaczony był nie tylko dla 964, ale także dla gamy Porsche ery transaxle (928, 944 i 968). Ten okaz 964 Carrera RS w rubinowej czerwieni jako nowy dostarczony został do klienta w Niemczech i pozostał z nim aż do maja 2015 roku. Obecny właściciel, kolekcjoner modeli Porsche z Austrii, szukał właśnie takiego, „uczciwego” i oryginalnego egzemplarza z niewielkim przebiegiem. Dziś, po przejechaniu nim zaledwie 800 km, sprzedał go na aukcji za 230 tysięcy euro, czyli 980467 złotych.

FOOTNOTES
'What the RS has done is take the technical brilliance of the latest Carreras and put back the missing excitement of some earlier, less pampering generations.’ – Brian Laban, Performance Car magazine.

Evoking memories of the legendary 2.7 and 3.0-litre RS and RSR 'homologation specials’ of the 1970s, in 1991 Porsche introduced the Type 964 Carrera RS. A lightweight variant like its illustrious forebears, the beautiful newcomer was based on the 'Carrera Cup’ competition car and sold in Europe only, though there was a lower-specification 'RS America’ for the United States market. There was also a Touring version that kept most of the road equipment fitted to the standard Carrera.

The Carrera RS retained the 3.6-litre engine, albeit boosted in maximum output to 260bhp and equipped with a lightened flywheel for improved response. The G50/10 five-speed transmission featured closer ratios, an asymmetrical limited-slip differential, and steel synchromesh, while the suspension was lowered and stiffened. The 0-100km/h time dropped to 5.4 seconds and the Carrera RS had a top speed of 260km/h.

The interior was stripped out completely and the power steering, power windows and seats, rear seats, air conditioning, cruise control, sound deadening material, and stereo system removed. Two lightweight racing bucket seats were fitted instead. The front bonnet was made of aluminium and the chassis was seam welded, while the side windows were made from thinner and lighter glass. Rounding off this radical exercise in weight reduction, the Carrera RS was equipped with 17″ Cup magnesium wheels. The result was a total weight saving of around 150kg compared to the Carrera 2, transforming the RS into a faster, more agile, and more responsive car.

Brian Laban found that any feeling of remoteness or soft touch had gone completely, and reckoned that the controls never felt more solid or precise. In his opinion the Porsche could not be faulted, the verdict being that the Carrera RS was 'exactly what a performance car should be’.

Delivered new in Germany, this 964 Carrera RS was kept by its original owner until May 2015 (at 46,340 kilometres) when it passed to the current vendor, an Austrian Porsche collector who was looking for an honest 964 RS in a 100% original condition for many years. Since then, the owner has driven the car only some 800 kilometres, and this lack of opportunity to use it has prompted him to offer it for sale.

Unmolested and little used, this stunning RS is finished in the extraordinary colour of Rubystone Red, which also featured on one of the exhibits on Porsche Classic’s stand at this year’s Techno Classica Essen. The car has been checked by both Johannes Huber (Ecurie VIE) and Porsche VIE, and has been inspected and approved by RS specialists Gaby and Gert Callewaert. It comes complete with all books and tools, German Fahrzeugbrief (cancelled), sundry invoices for work carried out, and current Austrian registration papers and Technical Inspection.
