1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS
Introduced in the mid-60’s, the Porsche 911 had somewhat of a tough time establishing itself on the market. Tricky handling, a high price and much less power than the Corvette kept the early 911 sales figures relatively low. However, Porsche didn’t give up. Each year, the company has presented an upgraded version with even more power and better handling.
They introduced the 911 Carrera 2.7 RS in 1972 as a street-legal racing car. It included an upgraded engine, a lightweight body and a rear spoiler. This car was a pure racer with license plate holders, too. It also featured a 2.7-liter flat six engine people could tune up to 300 HP. Thanks to its light body and quick ratio manual gearbox, the 1972 Carrera 2.7 RS could get to 60 mph in respectable six seconds flat.
