The Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 has long been an icon of automotive history, unique and unforgotten. 50 years after its world premiere, the Porsche Museum celebrated it in 2022 with a special exhibition entitled “Spirit of Carrera RS”.
In the sports version, the 210 hp coupé weighing 960 kg accelerated from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds, with a top speed of just under 245 km/h. The aerodynamics, which were already precisely designed for racing cars at the time, still make the RS unique today.
The Porsche Museum tells the story of the RS and its motorsport brother the RSR not only with vehicles and anecdotes, but also with films, photos, racing posters and interactive elements. For example, anyone who turns the model detail and colour wheel of the kaleidoscope can put together their own individual RS. In order to satisfy as many wishes as possible, Porsche remains true to the principle of individualisation options with the Carrera RS 2.7. Thus, buyers could choose from many colours and equipment variants. The demand surprised the sports car manufacturer, who originally planned 500 series-produced examples for homologation. Although it was possible to put together an individual RS in the exhibition, it was unfortunately not possible to place an order with Porsche. Instead, one is left with the pictures of the exhibition.
