While all 911s are brilliant, the best are forged in the crucible of motorsport. Built to homologate the 3.8-liter RSR for competition in BPR GT3 and GT4 racing, the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.8 is essentially a racing car built for use on the road.
At its heart is the 3.8-liter normally aspirated Type M64/20 engine producing 296 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 262 pound-feet of torque at 5,400 rpm. Its Variocam variable-length intake system and newly designed forged pistons introduced additional weight savings over the standard 3.8-liter engine. This distinctive powerplant sports dual oil coolers, lightened rocker arms, and a host of additional performance upgrades befitting its role as a homologation special. The gearing of its Type G50/31 six-speed manual transmission is optimized for acceleration, rather than top speed.
Porsche also fitted a limited-slip differential, 993 Turbo-sourced anti-lock brakes, and ADB traction control. Immense 265/35ZR-18R tires in the rear and 225/40ZR-18 tires in the front are mounted on special 18-inch “Speedline for Porsche” three-piece, light-alloy wheels with magnesium centers.
The magnificent Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.8 featured here is finished in its highly desirable factory color combination of Grand Prix White over black and was Completed at the Stuttgart-based Porsche factory in July of 1995. This Porsche 993 Carrera RS 3.8 #390626 received a good variety of options available to purchasers. Degrees of comfort were added thanks to the re-installation of essentials such as automatic air conditioning, radio, and power windows. On the performance end, this RS received the desirable fixed ‘Club Sport’ wing on the back of the car with integrated ram intakes, and a deeper chin spoiler compliments up front. Together, both elements work to increase stability at speed and increase downforce.
The Carrera RS is the rarest, most focused iteration of the 993 platform. Just 274 were built, of which none were originally exported to the United States. Today, very few have made their way to the United States, and many of those are kept out of sight in private collections. This attractive and well-documented 3.8 is now past the 25-year import restriction window and would be a rewarding acquisition for its next owner to enjoy—without limitation—on US roadways.

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).
In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle.

The advertised mileage represents the actual miles when the car was posted online. These vehicles are test-driven and actual mileage may vary at the time of sale.
All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
