Audio & Electronics
The 73 and 74 Porsche 911 Carrera RS is perhaps the most famous of all 911 automobiles…RS stands for “Renn Sport” in German, which translates to “Race Sport” or sport of racing in English. These vehicles were created to meet homogolation requirements for Porsche to qualify for Group 4 GT class racing in 1973 and 1974. Engine and suspsension enhancements, as well as body modifications to lighten the cars, a front spoiler, and rear “ducktail” spoiler were added for downforce…and became the RS trademarks, along with the Carrera script along the sides, and color matched forged Fuchs wheels. These street/track cars further led to the creation of the RSR model-a pure racing machine that definitely made it’s mark in racing history, winning race after race worldwide…
History of this Vehicle
This car began as a factory 1986 911 Carrera…I knew when I acquired it, that it would soon become a clone of the 74 Carrera RS I so admired growing up…I chose a later model because pre-77 models were not galvanized for rust protection…I live by the ocean, so this was a major consideration. In addition, the 86 has much improved a/c ventilation over previous years…I live in florida…so this was another important factor. Front spoiler and rear “ducktail” was added, along with Carrera scripted decals, and RSR finish wheels. RS models in 74 were only released in Europe, so I also added the European rear bumper and tail lights. Other details indicative of RS models used for competition, are the amber driving lights, CIBIE hood mounted lights, and MOMO Prototipo steering wheel-seen in many Porsche race cars of the 70’s.
Plans for this Vehicle
The 3.2l motor of 86 provides similar HP to the 3.0 RS motor of 74…I’ve done a couple of basic upgrades, including chip, and euro pre-muffler exhaust to provide additional HP. I have recently upgraded the suspension…Bilstein Sport struts/shocks…fresh bushings, ball joints, turbo tie-rods, bump-steer kit, sway bar bushings, etc…Plans include torsion bar upgrades and I would LOVE to put a RED interior in this car!
