In October 1972, Porsche presented a new 911 base vehicle for racing and rallying, the 911 Carrera RS 2.7, at the Paris Motor Show. In addition to the base version, the new model was sold primarily in two versions, "Sport" and "Touring". The 911 Carrera RS 2.7 "Touring" offers some comfort, while the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 "Sport" is more trimmed to lightweight construction.
The high-revving naturally aspirated engine with a litre output of almost 80 hp and the specially developed five-speed transmission contribute to the dynamics of this 911 on the drive side. While only 500 vehicles were planned at the beginning, 1,308 examples of the "Touring" were produced. The "Sport" version will be produced in 200 units. Only 17 vehicles remain in the basic version.
