Here’s a remarkable find – a brand-new 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR. The race-ready 911 RSR is one of the rarest 964 variants in existence.
RM Sotheby’s has a 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 that, in their words, is “unused”. And, judging by the untouched dusty and dirty body, it looks more than just unused – it looks forgotten. In fact, it’s only been driven six miles… ever.
“You contact Porsche, and with considerable means, special order such a 911 to your own unique specifications,” waxes RM Sotheby’s description. “However, once delivered and with only 6 miles recorded, this limited-production 911 (just 51 were built) vanishes into a private collection, where it remains untouched and never driven for almost 25 years, still covered with its factory-applied Cosmoline coating.”
The wax is usually applied to protect the car during transportation and storage before it is ever used, but in this case it has attracted dust from its 25 years in storage – which explains the unusual appearance.
The RSR was essentially a track day special similar to what a GT3 RS would be today. While this Carrera does wear a Turbo body, a naturally aspirated 3.8-liter engine actually powers the RSR. Horsepower was underrated at the time at 350, with 375 hp being the more likely output, according to auction company RM Sotheby’s. Torque measured 284 lb-ft. The RSR 3.8 could hit 60 mph is 3.7 seconds, quicker than a Ferrari F40.
This particular Porsche was ordered with a fully furnished, and fully red, interior that sets it apart from the standard RSRs that were pretty spartan on the inside.
Low miles likely means a high price. It’s being auctioned at the RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba event in Italy on May 27th, where it’s expected to sell for well over $2 million.
