Description

Perhaps the fastest normally aspirated Porsche 911 produced by the factory to date is the 1996 Carrera RS 3.8, and it is indeed a wolf in wolf’s clothing. There is no hiding the car’s intent, which is to cover ground in a hurry. This extremely rare and desirable automobile was the ultimate evolution of Porsche’s Type 993 chassis, and in turn, it was a step up from the 964 RS. As Porsche historian Karl Ludvigsen wrote in his authoritative Excellence Was Expected, the RS 3.8 was one of several models built to fulfil the company’s grass-roots commitment to GT racing.

Its power is delivered through a Type G50/31 six-speed manual transmission, with its gearing optimised for acceleration rather than top speed. Immense 265/35ZR-18R tyres in the rear and 225/40ZR-18 tyres in the front are mounted on specially made 18-inch “Speedline for Porsche” three-piece, light-alloy wheels with magnesium centres, which are 9-inches wide in the front and 11-inches wide in the back.

This wonderful 993 RS was delivered new in 1996 to Japan, where it resided until being re-patriated back to Europe a year ago. Having covered just 41,000 km, and complete with history from Japan this striking 993 has since formed part of one of Europe’s most significant Porsche collections where it has been serviced by arguably the UK’s best- Jazz Motorsport. Offered publically for sale for the first time this striking Speed Yellow 993 has to be arguably the best available on the market worldwide today.

Dieser wunderbare 993 RS wurde zuerst 1996 nach Japan ausgeliefert, wo es solange verblieb, bis es vor 1 Jahr wieder nach Europa zurück gebracht wurde. Mit nur 41.000 gefahrenen km und kompletter Dokumentation aus der Zeit in Japan, ist es seitdem Teil von einer der bedeutendsten Porsche-Sammlungen in Europa, wo es durch UK´s Besten gewartet wurde – “Jazz Motorsport”. Erstmalig zum öffentlichen Verkauf angeboten, ist dieser Speed Yellow 993, der wohl bemerkenswerteste weltweit verfügbare auf dem heutigen Markt.
