Introduced in 1993, the RS America was a lightened, limited edition, performance version of the venerable Porsche® 911 Carrera® which according to Porsche® both “commemorates the 20th Anniversary of”, and “captures the spirit of” the original 1973 Carrera® RS. By now, engine size had increased to 3.6 liters, and horsepower output had pretty much doubled.
In the end, only some 701 RSA's over 2 years (model years 1993 and 1994) were ever produced, making this one of the rarest 911 models Porsche ever produced.
But, you may say, it's not a "real" RS - like the original '73. Well, good point. So how does the RSA stack up against the original RS? Surprisingly well, actually. Click here to find out.
My particular car is one of only 92 of the remaining known 457 RSA's that came equipped with all 4 options offered for the car (a very limited number, as Porsche offered 48 options in '93 for the regular 911). Besides being equipped with all 4 options, this car was custom ordered in Porsche Midnight Blue - one of only 43 known to still exist in this color, and has the even more rarely known so-called "5th option" - the "XY" colored seat belt code. It is indeed a unique car.
Surprisingly though, there are some particularly ugly RSA America's out there however - like this one.
