General History

Originally released in 1973, the first 911 RS was available only as a European model. Though other models were subsequently built, the 1993 RS was made available in North America to commemorate the anniversary of the 911. The “RS America” delivered enthusiasts a no frills, minimalist performance car with lightweight construction and specialized equipment. All RS Americas were outfitted with the M030 sport suspension package, containing much of the running gear from the C2 Turbo including progressively wound coil springs, a larger diameter front stabilizer bar, upgraded shock absorbers, and 17” diameter C2 Turbo wheels.

The Porsche RS America was nothing short of a race car for the street, and even Porsche themselves were not shy about bragging so in their press release. “The RS America is a new derivative of the Carrera 2 for drivers who demand an even higher level of feedback – feedback so detailed, so precise that it usually is found only in racing cars. Indeed, the designation RS – German for ‘Renn Sport’ or ‘Race Sport’ is traditionally reserved for the highest performance Porsches. In a Porsche RS model, refinements in the suspension, steering, wheels, and tires all work in combination with perfectly coordinated weight reduction to create a dramatically different driving feel.”

In keeping with the lightweight performance nature of the RS America, only four options were available: Limited Slip Differential, Air Conditioning, AM/FM Cassette player, and Electric Sunroof. All models delivered to the dealership were shipped with RS emblems in the glove box along with instructions for how to apply them on the car. Four standard colors were available and two metallic color options were also cost added offerings. Of course the most significant visual feature was the unique and recognizable rear wing or “whale tail”, making the RS America the only 964 series 911 to be factory constructed with this feature. Although only 701 RS Americas were built, and each one was discounted by more than $10,000.00 when compared to a fully optioned C2, today RS Americas are highly sought-after due to their unique construction, rarity, and important historic value as road-built race cars. Rare by any classification the 1994 model year represents the last of this series. Just 84 examples were built as 1994 year-model cars with this one being the 62nd in production.

History of this RS America

According to the Porsche owner’s manual, this RS America was delivered to the Porsche dealer in Greensboro, NC and sold to the first owner October 23, 1993. Both the underside hood sticker and Owner’s Manual options sticker include option codes for US catalytic converter and all four of the available options:

C02 – Catalytic Converter
220 – Locking Differential (40%)
331 – AM/FM Cassette with Two Door Speakers
573 – Air Conditioning
650 – Sunroof

The first owner retained the car for just over five years using the car sparingly to preserve the condition. In 2001, the car was sold to the second owner, a resident of North Carolina. At that time, just 850 miles were indicated on the 6-digit odometer. The car remained with the second owner for 18 years until it was sold in November 2019 with 9,200 miles via auction on the website BringaTrailer

Under long-term second ownership this car was displayed at numerous regional Porsche Concours events, garnering several first-place awards including First in Class at the 2008 Porsche Parade, Charlotte, NC, as well as Best in Show at the 2004 Carolinas Region PorscheFest, the Keynote Award at the 2003 Euro Auto Festival presented by Bob Snodgrass, and has been displayed at the Porsche 70th Anniversary celebration at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta, Georgia, 2018. The car has been previously featured in the June 2013 issue of Hemmings Sports & Exotic Cars magazine and featured in the April 2020 Hemmings Motor News Buyer’s Guide while under current ownership.

Regularly serviced and maintained by the first and second owners as indicated by the dealer service stamps, the car has been documented with consecutively accumulated mileage and regular services. An October 2023 service invoice includes the following:

Oil and filter service
New fuel filter
New Kenwood door speakers installed retaining OEM speaker covers
Original muffler installed

Install new sway bar links
Install bypass G-pipe
Glove box door repair
Bleed brakes, top fluid, and road test

Condition and Features

Today, this Porsche presents in excellent preservation-grade condition throughout all surfaces and finishes supported by documentation validating the miles, services, and ownership history. The Guards Red paint is glossy and smooth on all body panels. The front of the car and other front facing surfaces are protected with clear PPF covering entirely the front 40% of the car including the hood, front fenders, and leading edge of the mirrors. The paint has been digitally metered returning consistent single digit numbers indicative of original factory paint including subtracted measurement allowances for areas with PPF. The body is in excellent condition showing proper factory door, trunk, and hood gaps, nicely fitting front and rear bumpers, and crisp closure from all opening features. The rear spoiler is beautifully preserved showing near perfect black trim and excellent fit to the body. The glass retains correct Sekurit brand etchings on the side and vent glass and the Sigla branded windshield shows no notable signs of rock chips. The electric sunroof operation is smooth and even with correct closure and sealing. The factory 17” Porsche Cup wheels have excellent silver finish on all four wheels with black Porsche brake calipers mounted at all four corners. A set of 2021 and 2022 date coded Continental Extreme Contact Plus 255/40 ZR17 tires are mounted.

The original interior shows essentially as new, featuring the correct and original factory RS combination black cloth and leatherette seats accented by red seat belts and matching red door pulls. The manually adjustable front seats move back and forward smoothly via manual lever adjustment. The condition throughout the interior is consistently fine including excellent RS door panels, near new condition rear seating area (unique to the 1994 models only), clean carpet showing almost no wear, and a smooth dashboard. The factory VDO gauges are in exceptionally fine condition with crisp lettering and numeric indication, vivid needle color, and clear glass covers. The optional AM/FM Stereo is in place and all climate controls function including cold AC. The factory steering wheel is in new condition as is the 5-speed gear shift lever housed in the center console. The overall fit and finish of the interior is clean and cohesive, having been properly preserved by just three Porsche enthusiasts/owners since new. The front storage compartment is also like new, featuring correct original carpet, the correct red rim spare wheel, an Optima battery, and all inner paint surfaces like new including wiring, factory decals, and correct hardware.

The engine compartment is original and correct and the original engine and transmission are supported by correct numbers in factory locations. The finishes and coatings on all components are factory correct including the factory labels, air induction housing and emissions equipment, correctly finished fan, functional air conditioning, and original hardware. In addition to the matching engine number, the car features various VIN stampings and labels throughout the car which are authentic, matching, and in excellent visual condition. The underside of the car is also consistent and beautifully maintained, still showing much of the preserved original golden-hued Cosmoline coating often lost due to over-zealous detailers seeking perfection over originality. All factory components are present and in excellent condition including the original 5-speed manual gearbox, correct suspension, and properly updated bushings as needed. Under prior ownership a set of aftermarket lowering springs have been installed (original units included with the car). The black molded right and left bumper pan covers have been replaced with new units (originals included as spares). There is no evidence of structural compromise to the floor pan or any of the suspension mounting points and there are no accidents recorded on the current Carfax.

The car starts instantly, and the clutch and gearbox work very well together shifting through all gears. Gear transitions are smooth as the engine exhibits legendary acceleration, progressive power, and excellent throttle response. The 3.6L air-cooled engine provides a wonderful induction roar and the performance is genuinely remarkable even by modern supercar standards. The suspension retains the desirably communicative air-cooled 911 character, while the brakes offer a firm pedal with smooth tracking. The chassis is composed, tight, and authentic, delivering the precise performance feel one might expect from a car of this distinction and documented provenance.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a fully optioned, low mile, exceptionally well-preserved RS America. The dedication of just three owners to preserve and maintain this rare car allows for the next fortunate performance minded enthusiast to enjoy this Porsche with continued driving confidence and proud participation at any Porsche Concours.
