Rare Porsche 911 RS Models Go Under the Hammer

Porsche 911 RS auction 0 600x325 at Rare Porsche 911 RS Models Go Under the Hammer

Silverstone Auctions will host on October 25 what might be the world’s largest Porsche 911 RS sale with 57 cars on offer. The cars range from the ‘early 500’ 1973 to the modern 911 997 GT3 RS, all in perfect condition and with exemplary specification. 

Porsche 911 RS (RennSport) is arguably the most desirable variant of any generation of the 911. They are the crème de la crème of the 911 range favored by hard-core enthusiasts and professional drivers for their unique handing and a terrifyingly high turn of speed. And they’ve been like this from the beginning.

The most attractive offering of this ‘RS’ auction is an ‘early 500’ 1973 2.7 Carrera RS Touring, the first road going Rennsport car. It was homologated for road use, essentially giving birth to the whole idea of “reduce weight and add power” which Porsche has been perfecting with great result ever since.  The 2.7 liter car is expected to go for £375,000 – £425,000.

Other notable Porsche 911 RS models on offer include a 1991 3.6-litre 964 Carrera RS (£150,000 – £170,000), a 2003 911 996 GT3 RS of which only 140 units were sold in the UK (£145,000 – £165,000), 911 996 GT3 RS in Carrera white with blue RS stripes limited to 113 units (£120,000 – £140,000), and a limited edition limited edition orange and black (£130,000 – £150,000).
