Most classic Porsche cars have a story to tell, but every once in a while, we stumble across a model that has its own unique upbringing. The 911 Carrera RS seen here is one such vehicle, boasting a prized heritage and a near-perfect composure that makes it all the more iconic.

The 1973 variant represented here is an award-winning Grand Prix example that was relieved of its life on the track in 2018. After its acquisition (and subsequent rebuild) in 2013, the vehicle spent the next four years undergoing an extensive restoration process, including the reevaluation of its 2.7-liter flat-six engine. By 2017, the Carrera was road-ready, and was shown at that year’s Quail Motorsports Gathering — a prolific ten-day event taking place in California. A year later, it would secure the first place win at 2018 Carmel Concours on the Avenue. Of the Carrera RS 2.7’s 1,580 variants, only 1,300 were built to standard touring spec — making this unique vehicle a collector’s item in its own right. The car is slated for auction on BringATrailer, where it’s currently listed for $430,000.

Purchase: $430,000+
