when I think think Teutonic the first thing that comes to mind is this Air cooled Carrera RS 2.7. These models are sometimes considered by enthusiasts to be the most “classic” 911s. RS stands for Rennsport in German, meaning race sport. The Carrera name was reintroduced from the 356 Carrera which had itself been named after Porsche’s class victories in the Carrera Panamericana races in Mexico in the 1950s. The RS was built to meet motorsport homologation requirements. Compared to a standard 911S, the Carrera 2.7 RS had a larger engine (2687 cc) developing 210 PS (150 kW; 210 hp) with Bosch (Kugelfischer) mechanical fuel injection, revised and stiffened suspension, a “ducktail” rear spoiler, larger brakes, wider rear wheels and rear fenders. In RS Touring form it weighed 1075 kg (2370 lb), in Sport Lightweight form it was about 100 kg (220 lb) lighter, the saving coming from thin gauge steel used for parts of the body shell and also the use of thinner glass. In total, 1,580 were made, and qualified for the FIA Group 4 class. 49 Carrera RS cars were built with 2808 cc engines producing 300 PS (221 kW).

What a fantastic little gem this car is. Great paint graphics and details. From the real metal trim to the photo etched wipers to the amazingly detailed 2.7. Mind you this a 1/43 scale car and the hood doors and engine compartment open to reveal well thought out details. While not a perfect replica this is a wonderful little Porsche. Yes this is a must have
