Vehicle Background

In the early 1970s, Porsche aimed to bolster its presence in motorsport, particularly in the Group 4 GT racing category. To achieve this, they needed to produce a road-legal version of their race car to meet homologation requirements. Thus, the 911 Carrera 2.7 RS was conceived, blending track-bred performance with road-going usability.

The “2.7” in its name refers to the displacement of its engine, a larger and more powerful version of the flat-six engine than what was previously offered. The “RS” designation stands for Rennsport, which translates to “racing sport” in German, signifying its strong racing pedigree.

Technical Specifications

Engine and Performance

  • Engine: 2.7-litre air-cooled flat-six (Boxer) engine
  • Power Output: Approximately 210 horsepower at 6,300 rpm
  • Torque: 255 Nm (188 lb-ft) at 5,100 rpm
  • 0-60 mph: Approximately 5.5 seconds
  • Top Speed: Around 150 mph (241 km/h)

Chassis and Suspension

  • Body: Lightweight construction with thinner steel panels, aluminium doors, and a fibreglass front bumper and rear decklid
  • Suspension: Independent torsion bar front and rear suspension with anti-roll bars, and adjustable Koni dampers
  • Brakes: Ventilated disc brakes on all four wheels

Weight and Aerodynamics

  • Weight: Roughly 1,075 kg (2,370 lbs), thanks to extensive use of lightweight materials
  • Aerodynamics: Featuring a distinctive “ducktail” rear spoiler, the RS was one of the first production cars to incorporate aerodynamic aids to reduce lift and improve stability at high speeds

Wheels and Tyres

  • Wheels: 15-inch Fuchs alloy wheels, with wider rear wheels (7 inches) compared to the front (6 inches)
  • Tyres: Wider tyres at the rear (215/60 VR15) for better traction and handling, with 185/70 VR15 at the front

Design and Features

The 911 Carrera 2.7 RS retains the classic 911 silhouette but adds several distinctive elements. The aforementioned “ducktail” spoiler not only aids in downforce but also gives the RS its iconic look. The car is available in several striking colours, often with contrasting “Carrera” script decals along the sides.

Inside, the focus is on functionality and weight saving. The seats are lightweight bucket seats, and creature comforts are minimal, reflecting its racing intentions. However, despite its spartan nature, the RS still provides the quintessential 911 driving experience – engaging, responsive, and thrilling.

Understanding Scale

The scale of a model is its size as a proportion to the real-life item. For instance, a 1:18 scale model means that every 1 unit of measurement on the model equals 18 units on the real item. If you divide the real item's size by 18, you'd get the size of the 1:18 model. Please note that models can vary slightly in size, as not all real-life items, like cars or planes, have the same dimensions.
