Petrolicious Highlights the 1973 Porsche 2.7 Carrera RS – A Race Car for the Street
The Porsche 911 and its distinct buggy-eyed sports car design has been the German automaker’s flagship model for more than 50 years now. Having seen various iterations over the years, the early ’70s 911 Carrera RS is considered by many pundits and collectors alike to be the most sought-after model within the coupe’s long history. Although it was originally designed for the racetrack, Porsche produced a mere 1,580 of these Carerras to satisfy the FIA’s requirements to compete in certain circuits. For the latest subject of Petrolicious’ ongoing video series, we get a glimpse of Mark Haddawy’s classic 2.7-liter RS coupe with its iconic duckbill rear spoiler, Fuchs wheels, racing seats, and a bevy of original details.
