1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Prototype

The Porsche 911 is one of the most distinguished high-performance sports cars in history, so you could imagine how ecstatic we are about a pristine 911 prototype. This 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Prototype (Chassis no. 0012) in a nostalgic Signal Yellow is the second one built out of only four.

Back in the summer of 1972, Chassis no. 0012 graced the sales brochure for the 1973 model year and was used for testing before the start of regular production, ensuring the final product would be exemplary. It still looks strikingly close to how it appeared on the sales brochure with its RS bumpers, houndstooth seats, and 15-inch wheels. Paying attention to the details, this prototype differs slightly from the production Carrera RS with the most noticeable change being its lack of the iconic duck-tail rear spoiler. And, checking the odometer, it’s only covered around 21,000 miles, so it’s ready to eat up more road. This historical vehicle played a significant role in helping to develop the 911 Carrera model, making it one of the most treasured examples of its kind. It’s expected to sell for around $1,500,000.

Purchase: $1,500,000+
