The Porsche 911 2.7 RS Carrera was launched at the 1972 Paris Motorshow. Designed so that the already dominant 911 could maintain its fiercely competitive reputation on the racetrack, at least 500 production cars had to be made in order to homologate the car for competition use in Group 4 racing. There were a number of significant improvements, from the iconic aerodynamic ‘duck tail’ rear spoiler to the legendary 2.7-litre engine.
Chassis 0349 was delivered new in Touring specification, which incorporated all the best aerodynamic and mechanical improvements while still being fitted with a comfortable interior, making the Porsche ideal for fast and reliable everyday road use. This example, finished in its original colour scheme, is a rare, first series example, complete with its matching number engine. Having enjoyed long term single ownership by a fastidious Porsche enthusiast, 0349 is presented today in superb condition. We recommend you view the car at your earliest opportunity.
