The Collecting Cars auction site has another killer auction on right now. There are only a small number of 964 Carrera RS models produced (2,282) and of that number only 290 were Clubsport models, and this is one of them, car number 135.

The standard 964 Carrera can at times look a little like Steve Rogers before he became Captain America, and this Carrera RS is the full Captain America. Using RSR-style fenders, with a massive rear wing, lowered suspension, and racing components it would be a hell of a ride on any track day or event. 

Sure, these days a hyper hatch would probably show it a clean pair of heels but who cares, honestly, do we really care? Look at it! The sound, vibration, tactility, and overall mechanical feel derived from a package like this just can’t be engineered into most modern cars. It’s the experience you’re buying and there’s just something really cool about a track prepped classic.

With 76,884 kms on the dial, it’s not a huge amount but enough to show this has been used, and probably in better shape than any garage queen.

Here are the juicy bits: 194 kW, 312 Nm (this one has been documented at 270 hp/201 kW), close ratio G50 transmission, asymmetrical Limited Slip Differential and steel synchromesh. The usual light-weighting of everything was also the order of the day with aluminium boot lid, tinnier side windows, deleted rear seats, stripped out air-con, door cards, stereo etc. And of course, a lot of the focus was on the suspension components with a track focused set up riding 40mm lower, stiffer springs, shocks and adjustable stabiliser bars.

This being a Clubsport model it has a roll cage welded-in, racing harnesses, larger fuel tank and a master cut-off switch.

Interestingly, the original engine is not in the car yet it’s been replaced with a correct RS specific M64/03 engine with stamps.

The paint-to-sample colour of ‘Ferrari Yellow’, RSR style fenders fitted by Autofarm, and previously mentioned engine replacement suggest this isn’t the most original of 964 RS Clubsports but probably all the better for it if you’re looking to drive something rare, unique, and evocative.
