Rarity is a subject much discussed in Porsche collectibles, but truly rare 911s are few and far between. Porsche production ramped up significantly with the water-cooled cars, so while the later GT2 and GT3 models are great 911s, they were made in reasonable numbers. The real Porsche rarities hang from the air-cooled family tree.
As the last in the air-cooled 911 line, the 993 is an established favourite across the board, from narrow body Carrera’s to Turbo’s and then you have the stripped out raw and focused RS Lightweight.
This particular RS was first delivered via Porsche Centre Lausanne by Lake Geneva during August 1995, The RS was to reside in Europe until 2006 when it was sold by TJS Sports Cars (Thomas Schmitz) to its one and only UK registered owner to date.
This RS has been very well looked after in its 14 year ownership and has clearly received a money no object approach to insure the car you see before you is in exceptional shape, not only mechanically, the cosmetic elements are also to an exceptional level having picked up many concours trophies from varying Porsche events in the UK.
This RS is a factory matching numbers and its supplied with all its factory original panels. Due to stone chips and to keep up cosmetic appearance the front has received a 2nd layer of Riveria blue paint although from the doors and roof back micrometer readings are all in line with factory paint depths.
The overall condition is superb throughout and the car drives superbly with a wonderful soundtrack thanks to its Cargraphic exhaust system.
Opportunities to acquire cars like this are few and far between. The colour is a must have for any early RS enthusiast and we are positive expectations will be met on every level.
