1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

This is an extremely early car, one of the first 100 built.

All of the first 500 were originally built as lightweight models for the purpose of achieving the lightest possible weight, then adjusted to the new owners requirements.

This particular car ultimately left the factory with a few touring trim options but was essentially still a lightweight.

It had the fiberglass bumpers and aluminum ductail to go along with the usual thinner body panels and lack of insulation and sound deadening. It even retained the single sunvisor instead of two and single battery instead of the usual two.

Restored in Austria approximately 20 years ago, the interior was taken back to lightweight configuration. To extend the factories intent a bit further the car was fitted with aluminum doors and to enhance the driving pleasure and looks the car was fitted with 7โ€ and 8โ€ Fuchs 1 inch larger respectively. The car resided in Austria with its four respective owners, two Viennese Opera singers and two Porsche collectors, until 2002 when it was brought to California.
