2012 Techno Classica show in Essen, the world’s largest trade fair dedicated to classic cars, will host the 40th birthday party for the most iconic Porsche of all time, the 911 Carrera RS. On this occasion Porsche Classic will bring two racing versions of the 911 Carrera RS from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart to the show: the 1973 911 Carrera RSR and 1974 911 Carrera RSR Turbo.
The ’73 RSR delivers 330 hp and is a stunning car, but it’s kinda overshadowed by the RSR Turbo – with its distinctive widened rear wheel arches and its 500 hp from a 2.1 litre version of the charismatic flat six engine.
These models will be joined by a 911 Carrera RS 2.7 road car, which has been restored by the Porsche Classic workshop specialists. Also on show is an early Porsche 911, which is currently being restored for a customer at Porsche Classic. There will also be a custom-equipped 911 Carrera of the current 991 model series on display to showcase the wide range of available personalization options for the car.
Porsche Design will also be at hand displaying their latest accessories and Porsche-branded stuff.
Porsche Classic at Techno Classica:
Experts from Porsche Classic will be on hand to provide advice and practical assistance to visitors regarding the preservation and maintenance of their historic vehicles. They will also provide information on the availability of Porsche Classic original spare parts. Especially noteworthy, for example, is the coveted “orange” Porsche bonnet badge of the 911 models from 1965 to 1973, which has been not been available since 1974. In 2012, this will be re-released once more.
