964 Bonanza – Part 4 – 1992 Porsche 911 RS

The upcoming RM Sotheby’s auction at Amelia Island is the slicktop Porsche 964 gift that keeps on giving.

Up next is this Silver over black 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS slicktop. The RS has been enjoyed a bit, with 38,598 miles (the speedometer and odometer have been converted to MPH and miles, as God intended), but it looks factory fresh in the photos.

The RS was a non-US motorsports version of the 911 Carrera, with a higher output 3.6 flat-six, air-cooled engine, a stripped-out interior, and lightening throughout-magnesium wheels, aluminum hood, and thinner glass added up to 345 lbs in weight savings over the US- spec Carrera 2. Plus, the RS chassis was seam welded to make it stiffer – and better. Also making this one better is a slicktop roof. Much better indeed.
