IN THE SPOTLIGHT:
1989 PORSCHE 911 RSR PROJECT CAR
We're proud to represent this 1989 911 RSR Project Car at Gaswerks Garage. This car is a G50 car and is the last of the 911 series. All the body work was done in metal and in period-correct color of slate gray. Some features of this car include a chrome mirror, early European H4 headlights, European side marker light, and the lightweight fiberglass front bumper. The tires are 9s and 11s just like the factory 1973 RSR and are Michelin TB 15 tires to give it the desired look. This project also has longer wheel studs, open lug nuts, and is spoiler delete. With a fully rebuilt engine, this car could be one you can add to your collection.
1993 PORSCHE 911 RS AMERICA (Type 964)
The Porsche 964 was Designed by Benjamin Dimson in January 1986; it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models, most prominently the more integrated bumpers. It had added styling queues and features such as a power rear spoiler. It was the first
car to be offered with Porsche's optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all wheel drive as options.
In order to please devoted American 911 enthusiasts who wanted an RS model, Porsche produced the RS America. The RS America was produced as a model year 1993 and 1994 car based on the US Carrera 2. The cars were offered in standard colors: red, black and white and
optional colors: midnight blue metallic and polar silver. Several paint to order cars were manufactured in speed yellow. The RS America featured a distinctive "whale tail" spoiler, a partially stripped interior
with flat door panels (from the European RS) and carpeting along with a luggage shelf replacing the rear seats. Cloth covered sports seats, 17 inch wheels and M030 Sports Suspension were fitted as standard. The logo "RS America" was written on the deck lid along with an "RS" logo in front of the rear wheels. Deleted to save weight were power steering, cruise control, powered side mirrors, air-conditioning, sunroof and radio, although the air-conditioning, sunroof and radio as well as a limited slip differential could be ordered as options. The RS America was listed by Porsche as weighing 2,954 pounds (1,340 kg), 77 pounds (35 kg) lighter than the weight listed for a stock Carrera 2. The standard US Carrera 2 brakes, engine and gearbox were used.
Gaswerks Garage is pleased to offer this very clean 1993 RS America featured in Guards Red with only 33,000 miles since new. The RSA features a 3.6L engine producing 260HP. Porsche’s idea with this car was to add lightness instead of power thus removing all unnecessary accessories like a sunroof and radio. It makes for a car that is an absolute blast to drive and it is total “driver’s car”. The interior is finished in a very cool and lightweight cloth on the seats with leather dash and door cards. Signature “RS” style door pulls give the car an even more race car like feel.
On the outside, the paint is absolutely perfect and looks beautiful. This car is turn key and ready to be enjoyed. Our team of highly skilled Porsche technicians have looked this car over and it is passed with flying colors! Contact our Sales Team to schedule a viewing today.
