Slimmed and trimmed down and maxed with power. This 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS is certainly the most fun Porsche to drive and we sure wouldn't mind take it for a spin.

The 911 Carrera RS was introduced by Porsche in 1992, and it was developed specifically for the European market as a lightweight, track-ready version of the Carrera 2. Whilst the RS did not look significantly different from the other 911 models, engineers in Weissach utilised the simple and time-honoured tradition of “reduce weight, add power” to create the most dynamic 911 since the original Carrera RS in 1973.
Porsche really went all the way to trim nearly 175 kilograms of weight off of the Carrera RS. Aluminium was used for the bonnet, and thinner glass was fitted in the side and rear windows. Inside, Porsche used thinner carpeting and disposed of the 911’s usual luxuries, including its rear seats, power windows, electronically adjustable front seats, and front armrests. Porsche also chose to forgo power steering, allowing for greater steering interaction and feedback for the driver. All this led to a lighter yet more powerful car that is truly something special to drive. Here you have a rare opportunity to acquire, which is possible via RM Sothebys, an original, low-mileage, well-maintained, and unmodified Carrera RS in iconic and original Guards Red.
