Porsche at Techno Classica 2012

40 years of the 911 Carrera RS 2.7

Stuttgart. Porsche Classic will be exhibiting from 21 – 25 March 2012 at the biggest Classic trade fair in the world in Essen, this time showcasing its comprehensive service offering on a stand with more than twice the area compared with last year. A particular highlight is the legendary 911 Carrera RS 2.7, celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

To mark the occasion, Porsche is presenting two racing versions of the 911 Carrera RS from the Porsche Museum at the new location in Hall 7.0. The 1973 vintage 911 Carrera RSR delivers 330 hp. The ultimate RS variant dating from 1974, the 911 Carrera RSR Turbo with its two-metre wide rear end, even manages a sensational 500 hp, which it achieves with a mere 2.1 litre displacement. The “40 years of the 911 Carrera RS” anniversary is rounded off by a 911 Carrera RS 2.7, that has been restored by the Porsche Classic workshop specialists. Also on show is an early Porsche 911, which is currently being restored for a customer at Porsche Classic. Read more
