Some time ago we stumbled across a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 for sale on eBay and were instantly smitten. But the RS wasn’t actually the hottest 911 Porsche made during that time period; no, that honor went to the Carrera RSR, which was even lighter, even more powerful, and featured even more aggressive bodywork. The RSR was also the first Porsche to be fitted with the immortal “whale tail” rear spoiler, and it was the first car used for the International Race of Champions (IROC) (See it in action here.).
So you can forgive noted Porsche tuner dp Motorsport for wanting to recapture the magic of this iconic German trackburner with a bulging-fendered ’73 911 of its own. But this vision in white is no mere replica of an RSR; rather, it’s got all the style and swagger of an echt RSR, but with some added modern tech.
