Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7


Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7

Regarded by many Porsche fans as the best-handling 911 ever, the RS 2.7 is one of the finest fettled cars ever to come out of Stuttgart, Germany. Originally I here were to be just 500 built for homologation purposes, though this went to 1,500. The car was so radically modified compared to the regular 911 that it had to be built on a separate production line, having a delete list of items like the carpet, sealer, glovebox door and even the coat hooks. Also, the body received treatment with the engine cover and fenders being glass-fibre, while the steel panels and window glass were thinner. Bilsten gas shocks were fitted, along with thicker anti-roll bar, and the RS was given wider Fuchs alloys. The engine was taken out to l64ci (2.7 liters) from 146ci (2.4 liters) and flat top pistons plus fuel injection was lilted. A close-ratio gearbox helped keep the motor in the power band.
