While all 911s are truly brilliant cars, the best of them are born and bred in the crucible of motorsport. And the Type 993 Carrera RS is one of those very best. As it was based on the Carrera Cup competition car, it was specifically conceived as a homologation special to qualify the RSR 3.8 for BPR GT3 and GT4 racing. As such, the Carrera RS was only offered to the European market, and it never made its way stateside when new.

The Porsche 993 RS
At its heart is the 3.8-liter flat-six engine, which boasted numerous improvements over the earlier 3.6-liter engine, allowing the 3.8 (Type M64/20) to produce 300 brake horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 262 foot-pounds of torque at 5,400 rpm. It was fitted with Porsche’s innovated Variocam variable-length intake system and also featured newly designed forged pistons of a reduced height and a relocated wrist-pin, helping to keep piston weight below the standard 3.8-liter engine. The new engine also sported dual oil coolers and lightened rocker arms, amongst a host of additional upgrades that heightened the car’s performance.
