Martini Racing Porsche 911 2.7 Carrera RS - Great cracking sound!!

I have filmed a Porsche 911 2.7 Carrera RS driven by Dutch famous Formule 1 driver and winner of the 24hrs of Le Mans: Gijs van Lennep! This original 2.7 Carrera RS is from the State of Art collection. These models are considered by many to be the greatest classic 911s of all-time. RS stands for Rennsport in German, meaning race sport in English. You can hear the start up sound and some "backfiring" sound.

This 1973 Porsche 2.7 Carrera RS Is a Race Car for the Street
In the early 1970s, Porsche found itself in need of a street car that would allow the fellows in Stuttgart to meet homologation rules for the Group 4 Special GT series. What resulted was the 1973 2.7 Carrera RS, a brawny brother to the 911. With its ducktail rear spoiler, big brakes, and flared rear fenders, the car was an instant classic. Indeed, the car was so popular that Porsche opted to go well beyond the 500-car minimum required for homologation, ultimately producing more than 1500 of the Carrera RS model in 1973. Over the past 40 years, the Carrera RS has earned a reputation as the greatest dual-purpose Porsche ever produced, the very essence of balanced quickness. In 1973, however, owing to some killjoys' concerns about bumpers and emissions and excess glee, the RS was not certified for importation into the United States. And yet, somehow, four of these cars snuck across the border into the US. One of them, serial number 1309, ended up in the hands of famed race car driver and Porsche distributor Vasek Polek. Number 1309 now makes its home with Mr. Mark Haddawy, who seldom misses a chance to sling it through the canyons near his home in Los Angeles, California. As Mark points out, the RS, despite being a 40-year-old car, still holds its own against its modern streetmates. After all, even by today's standards, the RS is fast: it covers zero to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and sports a top speed of 150 mph. The mystique of the 2.7 RS, however, goes beyond sheer statistics and, at times, can defy description. "I've driven a lot of different sports cars," says Mark. "There's something about the RS that's magical. It's definitely more than the sum of all of its parts." For now, then, we'll just call the RS what it is: a race car for the street. Drive Tastefully®
