A History of Porsche 911 RS cars

The "RS" badge holds the greatest fascination for Porsche aficionados. We have compiled a comprehensive history of the evolution of the Porsche RS cars from the time that it was just an itch that Porsche had to scratch in 1972, documenting the meticulous way in which each RS was created using the state-of-the-art technologies at each juncture.

However the concept of 'lightweight' (as opposed to high horsepower) underscores each and every RS development, although the latter does not hurt, especially when it came to bragging rights.

Needless to say, one obstacle course that all RS cars need to conquer (to this very day) is the infamous Nordschleife circuit and with the one and only GT2 RS, Porsche has regained its status as the number one "mass" production car to lap the Nurburgring. By reading through history we come to appreciate these masterpieces even more.

1953 Porsche 550 Spyder

 

In 1953 Porsche unveilled the 550 Spyder at the Paris Auto Salon. It was the race car that Porsche intended to use in the next few years and within a year had managed a class win at the 1954 24 hours of LeMans. Much if the inspiration for the 550's came from the racing 356s of that era. As it does today, Porche targeted privateer racers and even had the company of racing greats like Dan Gurney and Phil Hill behind the wheel of racing 550s.

1973 Porsche 911 2.7 RS

 Towards the end of 1972 Porsche presented a new model developed primarily with the focus on motorsport: the Carrera RS 2.7, a sports car unforgotten to this day also because of its characteristic “ducktail", a feature quite unique at the time. Up to that point company policy had been to keep all engines in the 911, even the racing units, within the 2500-cc capacity limit. But now engine bore was enlarged once again, increasing displacement to 2687 cc and with maximum output of 210 bhp at 6300 rpm.
