    In the early s, Porsche wanted to build on the success of its world-beating Type endurance prototypes, but it faced a dilemma: They would be called the Carrera 3. A second run of units was approved, comprised mostly of Touring versions. The company, realising that the first cars had been under-priced, boosted the retail price by another 1, Deutschmarks, but these, too, quickly sold, and a third run was completed at an even higher price.

    Eventually, a total of 1, Carrera RSs including prototypes and homologation units left the factory. The Carrera RS Touring and its competition-oriented sister made extensive use of lightweight materials. Fiberglass was used for the engine cover and front and rear bumpers Series 2 Touring models had steel rear bumpers. The rear quarter panels were artfully widened to accept wider seven-inch wheels and tyres the front wheels remained six inches wide. Whilst the Touring version was intended for road use, the M Lightweights were aimed at club-level racers.

    This very exclusive series, of which only were produced, scaled only kilograms, about kilograms less than the Touring model, which was accomplished through the utilisation of thinner-gauge steel for their wings, roof panel, and doors and thinner and lighter and very expensive clear glass from the Belgian firm Glaverbel. This special glass was fitted to most Series 1 Lightweights but only a few from the second series where available with this option.

    There was no sound insulation, and only very thin carpeting and simple rubber mats covered the floor, whilst the rear folding seatbacks, sun visors, dashboard clock, radio, and glovebox door were deleted. The standard armrests and latch handles were replaced by simple plastic pull handles and pull-cord door releases. The heart of the Carrera RS was a new six-cylinder engine of 2. With this increased displacement, 8. It was trimmed with red Carrera graphics and the spokes of the anodised Fuchs forged alloy wheels were painted to match.

    The interior was a black leatherette, and as a Lightweight, this RS was fitted with a pair of Nylon-upholstered Recaro competition seats with adjustable headrests. There is a mix of Glaverbel and Sekurit glass, and the backlight is heated.

    The car was delivered with several items that are included on the Touring version, such as a glovebox door and a standard Porsche badge on its bonnet instead of a decal. The lightweight rear lid has a pair of rubber hold-downs as well. Only a few options were specified, including a percent limited-slip differential. Per usual, both the clock and radio were deleted. In , it was acquired by the present Italian owner.

    He more recently embarked on a complete restoration of the Carrera RS, entrusting it to Porsche specialists at Tirelli Motorsport in Turin. The restoration was fully photo-documented. The odometer reads just over 67, kilometres, which are believed to be original and correct.

    Here is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire what is certainly amongst the finest Carrera RS M Lightweights extant, one that has been newly restored to its original mechanical and cosmetic specification and has a small number of owner-added improvements, including a handsome four-spoke leather steering wheel, a front strut brace, and twin outside mirrors.

    The car, including the undercarriage, is presented in immaculate condition inside and out. The sound of a fuel-injected Carrera RS at full song is amongst the most glorious aural experiences imaginable, and is ready to provide its next owner with that wondrous symphony whilst showing its heels to any number of more modern sports cars.
