1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS – Clone ** VIN 9116200267** In the early 1970s, Porsche sought to build on the success of its world-beating Type 917 endurance prototypes by developing the Porsche 911 Carrera RS. The legendary Carrera RS, widely regarded as one of the greatest – if not the greatest – dual-purpose Porsches ever was available in both the M472 Touring and M471 Lightweight forms. Like the Carrera RS M471 Lightweight, our version is a stripped-down Porsche 911 that weighs approximately 2, 100 lbs. and features lightweight interior body panels and seats, minimal body trim, five-speed manual transmission, independent front and rear suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. The wheelbase measures at 2, 268 mm. Our model is a 2, 687 cc (2.7L) SOHC air-cooled horizontally opposed six-cylinder power plant that also uses 90-mm aluminum barrels coated with Nikasil (Nickel-silicon carbide) for improved lubrication and wear characteristics. Fiberglass was installed for the engine cover as well as for the front and rear bumpers. The RS’s trademark feature – the “ducktail” rear spoiler – was added to the engine cover after wind-tunnel testing had demonstrated that it was very effective at increasing high-speed stability by reducing rear-end lift. The rear-folding seatbacks, sun visors, and radio were removed. The standard armrests and latch handles were replaced with simple plastic pull handles and pull-cord door releases.
