|Model:||Porsche 2.7 RS Touring : 1973|
|Exterior Colour:||Grand Prix White / Viper Green|
This beautiful example is car number 936 and was built in March of 1973 where it was delivered new to Germany in the extremely rare colour combination of Grand Prix White with Viper Green Carrera lettering and wheels. The first owner has not been recorded but Just 60 examples of the RS were built to this specification including Porsche's own example in the factory museum. The car was sold when approximately ten years old to the well-respected Miami dealer David Mohlman and subsequently sold to Dolores Lazzarin from Coral Gables in Florida. She kept the car a couple of years before selling it to John Kelly, an accountant from Fort Lauderdale. The car remained in his careful ownership for the next 30 years finally selling it to his close friend and Porsche restorer, Phil Bagley.
Mr. Bagley immediately commenced a comprehensive engine and gearbox restoration overseen by Butch Stokes of Fort Lauderdale. Less than 1,000 miles have been covered since the engine and gearbox rebuild. The car has subsequently been imported back into the EEC with all taxes paid and is now registered for road use here in the UK. The car has also more recently benefitted from a full cosmetic restoration. This fine example of Porsches iconic RS 2.7 Carrera is also fitted with the ultra-rare genuine Lightweight (M471) seats and door trim panels being a desirable deviation from its original specification.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the most iconic cars in motoring history, a must in any serious historic car collection with all matching numbers in stunning condition throughout.
