Description

Being 1 of 1,580 originally produced, #0541 is a matching numbers example of this most sought after Porsche and is in mint condition throughout, having been expertly treated over 23 years by its fastidious owner, the current vendor.

“Germany’s fastest rarity” – as the 911 RS was called by the testers in period – has not lost any of its assets, and today for many Porsche enthusiasts is still is the most enjoyable Porsche 911 to own and to drive.

When #0541 was delivered from the factory the extras ordered were: limited slip differential; Recaro sport seats with Perlon-cord inserts; long range petrol tank; and ‘space saver’ spare wheel. The car’s roof was executed by the works in thin metal; it wears its original GRP duck-tail rear spoiler, its original GRP front spoiler as well as its original headlining, all in excellent condition, as is the original dashboard. The only later additions are the inner door skins, which are also lightweight specification.

The injection pump was overhauled by Bosch (inv. available); the engine also had a major overhaul with new main and connecting rod bearings and a complete set of new original Porsche pistons/cylinder by Mahle. Time serts were also installed to fasten cylinder head studs in the crankcase and the chain tensioners were updated to the modern type.

Since this overhaul the car has run – faultlessly, as expected – for around 15,000 kilometres, and its total mileage is now just over 100,000 kilometres.

Moreover, the original Fuchs rims – 7′ to the front and 8′ to the rear – were overhauled by manufacturer Fuchs of Ludwigsburg in 2014. At that time the wheel alignment was also done.

This Porsche 911 Carrera RS of 1973 speaks for itself. Totally rust-free (having always been stored in a dehumidified garage), it comes with Swedish paperwork, history file, original brochures, a custom fitted car cover, some original tools and paperwork.

Proudly presented by Coys, and definitely not to be missed by any serious Porsche collector.
