1973 Carrera RS Recreation"TRIBUTE".... A faithful reproduction of the 73 Lightweight Carrera RS ( 73 Carrera RS thought to be one of the best RS cars Porsche ever made due to its superb balance and power to weight).
This example was built from an excellent, rust free 73 911 T non sunroof tub by Porsche National Award winner Creative Chaos LLC. Its builder searched extensively for a rust free tub and used NEW fenders and doors to
so as to have as close to perfect panel finish with NO body filler of any kind.
This spectacular 73 911 is finished in Light yellow over black and IS NOT a 'BACKDATE' of an impact bumper car but build from the much LIGHTER 73 911 coupe.
This 73 has just has recently had an additional $ 30, 000 spent on it.
Currently, it would cost $ 250K + to build this car to this level.
It is a joy to drive....very agile, light and quick and sounds fabulous with MFI injection.
This RS Tribute was painstakingly assembled with the intention of creating a car as close to the original as possible. RS inner door panels, Lightweight Carpet set, RS Carrera Script and paint line on bumpers, COA for 73 911 coupe. Fitted with a 2.7 Liter (MFI) Mechanical Fuel Injected Bosch motor, cams, pistons, etc.
