Auction Block: 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Clubsport

Jan 14, 2020

When Porsche introduced the Type 996 in 1998, it marked the end of the elite German outfit’s long-running iconic air-cooled 911 era. And as the final air-cooled 911 model, the 993 quickly obtained an almost-cult status as something of an instant classic. Of the more-than-half-dozen 993 specs, the most exotic was undeniably the Carrera RS Clubsport. Based on the Carrera Cup race car, the RS Clubsport — also known as the “RSR” and “RSCS” in some markets — was produced in ’95 and ’96 for homologation purposes and as such was limited to at most a few hundred examples worldwide.

So, anytime one of these prestigious air-cooled Porsches pops up for sale we take notice, though an absolutely pristine example slated for sale at RM Sotheby’s upcoming Paris sale is on another level entirely. Powered by an air-cooled, 3,746cc, flat-six with Bosch Motronic engine management, and a six-speed transmission that put down 300hp and 262ft-lbs of torque, the track-focused RS Clubsport featured a full Matter roll cage, external wing, Recaro race seats, Speedline alloy wheels, a 930S-type steering wheel. This particular unrestored specimen is on its second owner, has never been tracked, and has under 40,000 original miles on the odometer. This example is also fitted with the factory-optional Blaupunkt Düsseldorf stereo radio and is being offered with all of the car’s original owners manual, jack, tool-roll, spare, and service records. Scheduled to cross the block next month in Paris, this 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Clubsport is expected to bring in between $362,000 to $417,500.

Purchase: $362,000+
