Porsche had two goals with the 964 Carrera RS: Remove weight and add power. By shaving 350 pounds over 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, special ordered in Midnight Metallic Blue, was first purchased by Werner Wenger at AMAG Bern in Switzerland. As meticulous as they come, Wegner made sure that the RS was cared for dearly. Barely driven and serviced regularly, the 964 would see less than 11,000 miles over the next 13 years before moving on to its next owner, Marcel Koebeli, also a Switzerland native. He would follow in the footsteps of Wenger and have the car cared for in a similar fashion, ensuring that it would receive its annual maintenance and was driven sparingly. Marcel would barely add any miles during his ownership which spanned almost an entire decade, adding less than 2,200 miles to the Carrera. The car would then be imported to the United States on August 11th, 2017 by Dave McCart, two and a half decades after its time in Switzerland.
When the 964 arrived at Canepa, it was very apparent that the car had been extraordinarily cared for, now showing 14,018 original miles. The dark Midnight Blue metallic looked as though it was new and is all original. The interior showed no signs of wear and would impress any 964 experts. The twin plug 3.6-liter engine fired up with no hesitation and idled just like how it would have when it left the factory. This 964 Carrera RS, with its rare color combination and limited production run, will be the perfect addition to any RS collection or to a garage of cars that enjoy being driven with precision and passion.
About the Carrera RS
The famous moniker "Carrera RS", reserved only for lightweight factory cars, found itself united with Porsche's 964 for the very first time in 1992. Pulling from Porsche's long lineage of lightweight cars with improved performance, the new Carrera RS found a host of features that embodied the original RS. Power was increased to 260 horsepower by tuning and adding a twin plug ignition system, and a single-mass flywheel was added for increased response from the engine. Stripped of power windows, sound deadening, power seats and the stereo, along with thinner side and rear window glass reduced weight. Magnesium wheels on all four corners saved 22 pounds alone with an aluminum hood shaving weight down at the same time, and the chassis was welded by hand at the seams to increase rigidity. When said and done, the Carrera RS would not only provide a more direct and visceral driving experience to the driver, but would save more than 350 pounds over a stock 964.
