We never get the great Porsches in the USA...Oh Really?

New Arrival - 1993 Porsche RS America

The RS America was a special limited edition North American market car with only 701 examples being produced. While Europe received the Carrera RS along the same timeline, it was not a model that came to the United States due to federalization challenges. Through some lobbying from the Porsche Club of America (among others), Porsche listened to the demands of the US market, and created a stripped-down, lightened, and performance focused machine.

The RS America was based on the 964 C2 chassis, and then added M030 sport suspension (similar to C2 Turbo), 17” wheels, a fixed rear spoiler, RS lightweight door panels and release mechanism, and RS America badging.  From there, the factory deleted power steering, the rear seat, radio, some insulation, and A/C system (although you could add some of that back in with the options). It was a performance oriented “RS” model, and came in at a low price $10K less than a fully equipped C2 of the same model year.

This car is in exceptional cosmetic condition in all areas. It is ready to roll onto the lawn at the next PCA concours event if you desired. The paint is original on all surfaces, and in mint condition for age and mileage showing very minimal flaws and true factory orange peel. The engine bay and front trunk area look factory fresh.

This RS America is offered for sale with all original books, window sticker, compressor, tools, and factory bra all present. In my opinion, one of the top 10% of RS America’s (or even any 964 chassis example) I have seen in person.
