The true boy racer (or girl) knows it, power is important to a sports car. Even more important than producing high numbers, is the power to weight ratio. And evidently how to tame all these horses. To keep the true driving experience of the icon alive, the then newly launched 964 was put on a diet to create the 964 RS. Almost twenty years after the introduction of the now equally legendary 2.7 RS, Porsche connoisseurs agree, "the wait was worth it". The "less is more" ideology meant a strict weight loss program was key. Electric windows, air-conditioning, and a.o central locking were not welcome on the RS, on the contrary, a 40mm lowered undercarriage with 40% stiffer suspension was very welcome. Whilst not making the car heavier, the handling benefitted massively from this. Further, the car benefitted from lots of weight saving trics, such as door openers replaced by loops, simple door cards, aluminum bonnet, thinner glass, a lightweight flywheel and many more ways. The low seating position in the fabulous Recaro bucket seats, the stiffer and lowered undercarriage, limited slip differential, short gearing and a sportier set up ABS help lift up the sensation of speed to the next level. A 964 RS such as this one in lightweight specification, thus with no air-conditioning and power steering, is a hefty 130kg lighter than a standard 964 Carrera 2. And all of that whilst the engineers at Porsche managed to put out an extra 10bhp over the standard car. This sensational combination of letters "RS", can only be described by an enthusiastic owner, or can be experienced in Wamond, when you are a serious contender to acquire this RS. A big investment like this should comply to all important classic car prerequisites; a full history, damage free past, and excellent mechanicals. Excellent to hear then, that the the engine of this RS received a complete rebuilt executed by a Dutch specialist. With the car present are: a complete and extensive timeline, invoices, birth certificate and several testing results. The car is optically and mechanically in "new condition" and ready to race.
