If you’re the owner of a 1972 Porsche 911 Carrera RS, there is no need to tell you that the Carrera RS is one of the most desirable production Porsche 911 models ever produced. First developed to allow Porsche to compete in GT racing, the company needed to build 500 road-going models in order to qualify. While the Porsche marketing team doubted whether or not they could sell a premium Porsche 911 that lacked all the luxury amenities buyers were used to, the first 500 cars would sell out before they were even released. Developed from the 911S F-Series, the 2.4L engine of the 911S would be increased to 2,6811cc by using larger aluminum cylinders that were coated to give the bored a hard, low friction surface. This increase in engine capacity would catapult the 1972 Porsche 911 Carrera RS to more than 210 horsepower. Weight savings measures such as lighter and thinner steel on the roof, wings, and bonnet, and a windscreen that would use thinner glass also made the Carrera RS significantly faster.

Buyers will be able to identify your 1972 Porsche 911 Carrera RS by the large and distinctive “Carrera” side stripes that run from the front to rear arches. In total, there were 500 Carrera RS models revealed in September 1972. Additional production would continue until July 1973. 1580 units were built. Of these, most were Touring models and 200 were Sport. There were also 17 in the very basic RSH specification, which 55 were race-ready RSRs. The later would boast a roll cage, even wider rear arches, and a 2.8L engine that was capable of 300 horsepower.
