Rare Porsche 911 RSR put up for sale


The American company Hamann Classic Cars put up for sale the rarest Porsche 911 RSR (993). Only 45 such sports cars were built in two years of production, and this instance is considered the last. The first owner of the car was the German team Zakspeed Racing. The car participated in several marathon races, but then it was replaced by the Dodge Viper GTS-R. Zakspeed Racing owner Peter Zakowski sold the 911 RSR to a neighbor in the paddock, and the coupe hasn’t competed since then, although it has occasionally taken to the Belgian Zolder circuit and the German Hockenheimring. Since the 911 RSR is located in Germany, the price is in euros: 875 thousand.

The RSR series cars were designed for customer teams competing in the IMSA GT and European GT championships. Such sports cars were produced for only two years: in 1997, the Porsche Motorsport division built 30 cars, and another 15 were released in 1998. All RSRs were based on the reinforced Carrera 2 chassis and were equipped with an air-cooled 3.8 M64 / 75 boxer with a return of 325-350 horsepower. The coupe was equipped with a roll cage, an adjustable rear wing and a fire extinguishing system. The entire suspension was assembled on ball joints and complemented by Bilstein dampers with adjustable compression and rebound forces.

In addition, Zakspeed Racing ordered an in-car adjustable front sway bar, 380mm front brake discs, a 100-litre tank and a special ADAC GT Cup sprint exhaust system with silencer. And the current owner installed the Le Mans package. This is a carbon fiber underbody protection, a front spoiler with carbon “wings”, Kevlar doors and a lightweight engine compartment cover. At the same time, a huge rear wing, bolt-on fender flares and a Zakspeed exhaust line with intersecting pipes appeared on the car.

The car has been approved for various historic races such as Le Mans Classic or Endurance Legends. But he is forbidden to go on ordinary roads. Now the 911 RSR is in Germany and is valued by the seller at 875,000 euros.
