Known History

1973 Porsche 911RS Original Carrera RS 2.7, This is a particularly early example completed just before production became fully standardized. Work on her construction beginning in the last week of September 1972 finishing in November of 1972 with a delivery shortly thereafter to a favored local German client who took delivery directly from the Factory with registration issued upon delivery.

 

It is sequentially the 56th example (911 360 0056) but due to early request, homologation requirements, delivery and production issues, this was apparently the 24th example finished and sold new. It remained with a single owner in Germany until 1977 when Porsche Japan imported the car on behalf of the gentleman we purchased her from. It is as such a two-owner from new, example without rust or accident damage. Total mileage is 104,000 kilometers or approximately 64,000 miles from new.

 

The Porsche Factory Records provide few additional details other than that the limited slip differential failed while the car was still under warranty. Today, other than the color change of the wheels and graphics from green to blue and the fitting of an aftermarket air conditioning system, it remains a remarkably original and correct example.

 

All date coded items on the entire vehicle are October of 1972 or earlier including the original Fuch alloy/magnesium wheels, with the exception of the space-saver spare tire which is dated coded February of 1973. The vehicle is without any sign of rust or accident damage of any type. All body panels fit, seems and gaps are faultless, uniform and a clear indication the car has never been damaged or disassembled. The sheet metal is extraordinarily thin with no extra undercoating or insulation as seen on the later RS 2.7 models. The floor pans and all suspension components.

 

All "RS" specific early series one components are intact and original. These include the alloy suspension components, first-version, no-reinforcement rear fiberglass "duck-tail" spoiler deck-lid, three-pin CDI ignition system etc...

 

All services are current and up to date and a cold compression check was completed with perfect uniform results on all six-cylinders.

 

All interested parties are warmly welcome to contact me for additional assistance with the purchase of this vehicle.
