    In a beautiful Black Finish with Yellow Accents, and Black Interior, this Porsche 1973 911 RS started as a 1978 Porsche 911 SC, during a 2-year build, the car underwent an extensive restoration process to backdate it and reflect one of the most ultimate Porsches ever made, the iconic 1973 911 RS. This Porsche recreates the driving experience of the iconic Porsche 911, and this model encapsulates the quality of every fine sports car of the seventies. The perfect lifestyle choice, for sheer excitement and enjoyment.

    Think of a 911 RS, and you probably picture a Grand Prix White car with contrasting blue Fuchs alloys and “Carrera” script running across its lower sides. That’s what makes this contrasting black-yellow car such a welcome sight. The color scheme from the outside, along with all the details makes this car an attractive piece of engineering no matter where you go. Lacking emissions equipment, the RS model wasn’t originally available for U.S. consumption, which only adds more uniqueness to this Porsche.

    This rare non-sunroof Porsche fires aggressively, and running up through first and second gears, the car accelerates with ferocity. There’s less body roll, and it turns much more sharply. An edgier car to drive by far. Inside, the cabin has been fully reupholstered with several custom touches to give the exact feeling of the 1973 911 RS.

    Custom options for this Backdate 1973 911 RS include 15” Magnus Walker Forged 2 Piece Wheels, Wevo Shifter with Wooden Knob, Prototipo Black Sport Steering Wheel, 195/65/R15 Sportac 5 Giugiaro Design Tires, 225/60/R15 Sportac 5 Giugiaro Design Tires, Lightweight Bucket Seats with Plaid Inserts, 1973 Porsche Coco Black / Yellow Mats, A Pair of Cameo Stop Watches, Rally Style Hood Lights with Cibie Covers, Black & Yellow Carrera RS Accents, SSI Exhaust, PMO Carburetors, Front & Rear Bilstein Shocks, Rear Seat Delete, Air Conditioning Delete, and Radio Delete.
