Wedged between the G-series and the 993, the Porsche 964 was the brand’s 911 model during the first half of the 1990’s, and was the first 911 to come equipped with multiple creature comforts expected of a 1990’s car, like a fully independent suspension, ABS, and airbags. Sporting a wide variety of engine and trim choices, the 964 enjoyed massive sales success and had a broad appeal along multiple consumer segments, from their lightweight RS models, to their beefy 3.6L Turbo variants, or their automatic ‘Tiptronic’ offerings.
The Carrera RS model resurrects the brand’s Rennsport heritage, initiated by the 2.7-litre and 3.0 RS and RSR variants of the early seventies. The cocktail of a 265hp flat-six, a G50/10 gearbox with shortened ratios, and a strict reduction of weight to 1,220 kilos —close to 130 less than a Carrera 2— ensured a pure, dynamic driving experience. A total of 1,916 M001-specification 964 RS cars left the assembly line.
This desirable, low-mileage European example was delivered new to Hahn Sportwagen in Stuttgart, Germany. It is in exceptional cosmetic and mechanical condition, and is accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a wealth of books and accessories.
