If the 911 is the best car Porsche ever built then the best 911 ever made is the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS.
Despite initially being built to solely satisfy a Group 4 homologation requirement of 500 units, the Carrera RS 2.7 proved to be exceedingly popular with enthusiasts. Porsche responded to demand by increasing the price and building a further 1,080 cars.
Over four decades later and that demand is stronger than ever with prices for the original cars continuing to soar skyward, a state of affairs that has inspired many a Porsche enthusiast to create an homage of what was one of the defining sports cars of its era.
Signal Orange with Black Carrera script, Black leather/Corduroy Rennsport seats, sunroof delete, a 993 generation 3.6 litre flat six air-cooled power unit, super desirable G50 box, Bilstein shock absorbers, 16″ Fuchs on 7″ and 8″ widths with a Lightweight interior including pull handles and Prototipo steering wheel the masterfully built car offered is arguably the finest 2.7 RS Recreation in the country.
Built between 2011-2012 and featuring electric windows, air-conditioning and a modern stereo with Bluetooth compatibility from the correct glass fibre moulded bumpers and ducktail, to the skin tight panel fit and paintwork with a brilliant depth of finish to the painstakingly fitted interior trim this 911 is a one-inch punch knockout.
Documented by a swathe of receipts for service works and Porsche parts invoices since the build, this car has been fastidiously cared for by one of the best Porsche specialists in Sydney and is perfectly prepped and ready to drive off the showroom floor to breathe fire into your weekend escape drives.
This 911 has that wow factor that after you park, lock the door and walk away, it makes you turn back for a second take.
