1996 Porsche 911 Carrera RS (993)
The 993 RS is a lightweight version of the standard Carrera.
The car could be distinguished by a large rear fixed wing, a different front bumper with a wraparound front spoiler as well as air intakes next to the indicator lights. This car was one of very few local 993 RS models that came with the standard, more elegant rear wing. The car was fitted with 18 inch 3 piece rims. Headlight washers was deleted for weight saving purposes. On the interior the rear seat were taken out and sound proofing was reduced to the minimum. The car had special race seats with very basic door panels. The door handle was replaced by a pull strap.
The engine used in the RS is the 3.8L flat six air-cooled engine, producing 221kW or 296hp. This was the last air-cooled 911 RS Porsche produced. The next RS version of the 911 was the 996 RS that was produced in 2004.
Only 19 of the 993 RS cars were imported by the Agents between 1995 and 1996, of which two were Clubsport versions.
