Sackey & Co. is proud to offer a stunning example of a 1993 Porsche 911 RS America finished in factory Guards Red over the RS America-specific black cloth interior.
The original 1973 Carrera RS was available in Europe but not in the USA. Porsche decided to build the 1993 Carrera RS both to European spec and a limited number in compliance with US regulations. These US spec cars were assigned the name “RS America”. The intent was to create a basic lightweight, no frills 911 with minimal luxury options.
The standard US Carrera 2 brakes, engine and gearbox were used. The RS weighed 2,945 pounds so it was almost 80 pounds lighter than a standard Carrera 2. Fitting the RS America with the M030 sport suspension package, which included the use of much of the running gear from the 911 C2 Turbo, led to higher performance limits.
The Turbo’s progressively wound coil springs, larger diameter front stabilizer bar, and upgraded shock absorbers were standard equipment for the RS America, as were 17” diameter C2 Turbo wheels. The RSA rims were 7” wide on the front and 8” wide on the rear (as opposed to the 7” wide front and 9” wide rear wheels of the C2 Turbo). It also got a very cool “whale tail” spoiler.
In all, 701 cars were built as model year 1993 – 1994.
Our Porsche 911 Carrera RS America (964) offered here with chassis number: WP0AB2964PS419341, under the ownership of a woman from San Diego for 16 years up until 2009. After that, the car had two owners prior to current ownership. Like all other RS America, this example also got minimal luxury options that includes locking limited-slip differential, stereo, A/C, and electric sunroof. The odometer displays just 38,745 miles since new.
Being one of the most notable examples of a modern Porsche sports car, this well-preserved example of a 1993 Porsche 911 RS America would serve well in giving its next owner a rewarding and thrilling driving experience. See the car in full detail by visiting Sackey & Co. now!
