FOR SALE: Well-Maintained 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Clubsport
The Carrera RS Clubsport was a track-focused iteration of the Carrera RS with relatively limited road usability. The Clubsport added a fully welded roll cage which, combined with the RS’s seam-welded shell, increases the body’s stiffness by 40 per cent over the standard Carrera. That adjustable suspension strut brace was standard, the top mounts for the suspension being ball joints, the front suspension sitting 30mm lower at the front and 40mm at the rear. The RS also gained 23mm front and 19mm rear anti-roll bars.
While the 3.8 Clubsport had the same power (300 bhp @ 6,500 rpm) and torque (262 ft lbs @ 5400 rpm) figures as the regular Carrera RS 3.8, it was a different animal on track. 0 – 60 mph, quarter mile and top speed all matched the regular variant, but the Clubsport was track-focused and has faster lap times.
Today these 993 Carrera RS 3.8 Clubsports are some of the most prized collector cars on the planet and they are going for seven figures. When you consider that this is the last in a historic line of air-cooled RS models combined with just how magical it is to drive, it goes a long way to explaining why it’s so sought after today and why it is so expensive.
This 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Clubsport offered on RM Sotheby’s is one of the 213 examples ever made. It was equipped with a stronger battery, radio delete, dome strut, fixed spoiler with additional wing, windscreen tint, air conditioning, and cloth/leatherette seats from the factory before it was delivered to Germany in 1995. Finished in Guards Red, this well-maintained example has total mileage of 65,818 miles.
For enthusiasts who are looking for a deeply involving and thrilling road car, this highly original 993 Carrera RS Clubsport currently on sale on RM Sotheby’s is the one that you’re looking for. With its attractive color scheme and extensive mechanical improvements, this rare road-legal race car would be incredibly good on track and also as a superb addition to any Porsche collection.
