Porsche had two goals with the 964 Carrera RS: Remove weight and add power. By shaving 345 pounds from a stock 964 and bumping up the power to 260 horsepower, Porsche introduced a limited edition 964 in 1992 that was worthy of the Carrera RS name. With a single-mass flywheel, twin plug engine, racing bucket seats and a stripped out interior, not only did it perform far better than a stock 964, but provided the driver with a more direct physical connection to the driving experience.
This Carrera RS was ordered with a request for a standard German domestic market model in left-hand drive configuration with plans to immediately import the car to Japan. Painted in the stunning and extremely rare Black Metallic, the RS would clear Japan customs in an exempt status as a production left-hand drive vehicle and was then sold to its first owner in 1992. During the car's time in Japan, it would have two owners who would add very few miles to the odometer. In 2016, a U.S. Porsche collector would import the RS for the most recent owner. He would own the car for almost two years and serviced the car regularly before the RS would arrive here at Canepa.
Once it arrived, the 964 was inspected meticulously and noted to be in absolutely exceptional condition. With its original paint in perfect condition, the leather interior with almost no signs of wear and the car retaining its factory engine and transmission, this 964 Carrera RS is a shining example of what a time-capsule RS looks like. Immaculate throughout, this lightweight beauty is now ready for its next owner to tear up backroads or drive to this year's Rennsport VI.
