Built only for 1992, Porsche produced a variant of the 964 that would become one of the most popular and respected 964s to ever come from the factory: the 964RS. Lightened up from the factory by removing various components and materials from the car, these stripped lightweight Porsches were built for only one year in 1992. With just under 2,000 built, these cars instantly were a rare commodity. Approximately 76 cars known as "Touring" models, like this car, gained the modern luxuries that were removed from the rest, and given the chance to have special options added at the new owner's request. Most of the 964RSs were built as "Basic" models. These cars lacked most of the comfort features such as air conditioning, power windows, power seats and sound proofing removed, and unavailable to add any type of special options or requests.
Completed on March 6th, 1992, this Porsche 964RS Touring was optioned with Equipment for Japan delivery, Air conditioning and Power Steering. Imported into Japan by the Mizwa Motors Group, this Porsche was spec'd in Guards Red with a black leather interior with tri-tone seat inserts. The would remain in Japan for most of its life, only just recently been imported into the United States in 2012. Jim Woods, a prominent Porsche collector, would keep the immaculate 964RS for almost 6 years before selling the car to a southern California collector in 2018.
Upon arrival at Canepa, the 964RS was meticulously inspected both cosmetically and mechanically, presenting itself in like-new condition. Every panel has its original paint with no blemishes and the interior looks as though no one has spent any time inside. The engine bay is immaculate as it is original, and the underside of the car displays all of its factory hardware and finishes in a way that concourse judges admire: original, clean and well maintained. Now offered for sale, this excellent example of a 964RS Touring is a piece of 964 history that is both special and useable for everyday driving, and giving the driver the ultimate driving experience.
