The Carrera RS is one of the greatest 'homologation specials' ever built and remains for many the ultimate 911. Originally conceived as a small production Group 3 car it went on to humble prototypes and dominate Motorsport for many years beyond its introduction in 1972. Over thirty years later they are still used by enthusiasts to drive to a race weekend, compete, and drive home again in! Of the two main versions that could be specified by the factory - that of Touring and Lightweight - chassis 0972 is one of the very rare original lightweight examples.

Collected from the Stuttgart works on 30th March 1973 by German racing driver Klaus Samuleit who went on to compete in 0972 in no fewer than 42 rallies, races and hill climbs between 1973 and 1977 including 1973 Tour d'Europe, the 1973 German Rally and the 1973 Seen Rally, the car being run by Team Matter of Karlstadt. The Porsche was subject to a painstaking and extensive restoration in Switzerland in 2002 by marque experts. The car was fully prepared for competitive use in rallies such as the Tour Auto and Modena Cento Ore in which it has been a successful participant! These works included a full rebuild of the engine and gearbox and also the fitting of a full roll-cage, Recaro sports seats, a Halda trip meter and Peltor communication device. 0972 continues to be meticulously maintained. The correct Lightweight seats come with the car. Finished in the original colour of light yellow with black decals, it is rare to come across a Lightweight with both a period race history and restored to the condition to continue it being used in the mode for which it was intended. The Porsche comes with FIA papers and is ready for almost every event imaginable!
