Brand New 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Rediscovered And Up For Sale

Somebody with very expensive and very particular tastes purchased a 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR, put a mere 6 miles on the clock and then promptly forgot about it for 25 years.


Not only is it one of the only 51 Carrera RSR Porsche ever made, but it is also one of the two of them that fully finished interior. Although the RSR was sold as a track-ready, race model with very few of the comforts and luxuries you would normally enjoy in a high end car, this particular model had a customised complete red leather interior. Not only that but it sported gold brake callipers and purple Speedline three-piece wheels.

Eccentric tastes for a car that lay in suspended animation for all these years, clearly not even taken for a trip to the corner shop. I have forgotten the odd thing over the years but never a brand new high-end sports car. Somehow this car was neglected and forgotten about as part of someone’s private collection and sat idle, still sealed in the original factory fitted cosmoline rust protection.

When produced, Porsche quoted the 3.8-litre type M64/04 RSR-specific engine at an output of an impressive 350 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque. Transmission was in the form of a manual five-speed gearbox. Many people maintained that they had underrated the RSR by around 25 hp and in speed tests, the 1993 911 Carrera RSR came out faster than the Ferrari F40.


It is obviously looking a bit shabby with 25 years of accumulated dust and engines, particularly such high performance ones, do not like to sit unused for such extended periods of time. It won’t take much work to get the Polar Silver Metallic paint looking as good as new and the engine driving as it was in its original condition. It will be quite amazing to see a 25 year old super car that is quite literally brand new.

RM Sotheby’s have the exciting opportunity of auctioning the historic and rare car in the near future and it is expected to go for a fair wad of cash. They have yet to give any sort of estimate but one that was not in a pristine, new state like this one fetched around $1 million in London last year. We hope the new owner gets a bit more use and enjoyment out of this beautiful vehicle.
