One of 55, the 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.8 (model 964) is a car one should think not coming up for sale a lot.  However, the last few months a few have 993 model Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.8 popped up in an auction, recently in the RM Sotheby auction in Scottsdale. This left-hand-drive example appears to be the second-to-last RS 3.8 completed. It left the factory in late 1993, one of the 12 ordered in Speedgelb. The car has only 6825 kilometers on the counter, which makes it even more desirable for collectors. Btw if you need to know more about the car, the Porsche 964 Carrera RS 3.8 book is a good start.

1994 Porsche 911 Speedster

One of 469 North American examples, this Ferrari yellow Porsche 911 Speedster has only driven just over 21.000 miles.  The car is now in the collection of a prominent Porsche collector. It has been properly maintained in all respects and driven on a regular basis to ensure that it is in proper working order. Recently serviced by a trained Porsche technician, it is supplied with its correct tool roll, electric inflator, manuals, and period sales materials. Even though the number of 469 cars produced , makes this car not the rarest of the rare, it still is a limited production car you won’t cross often. It will definitely find a new owner.

This 964 model Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 can be seen as a time capsule. With only 765 km on the counter, this car is as new as it left the factory in Zuffenhausen. Porsche constructed 49 RSR 3.8s plus one pre-production test car and one factory race car, plus then a delayed run of four cars that have been omitted on many records, for a total of 55 units, enough to satisfy FIA homologation requirements.This Japanese delivery Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 would make a wonderful addition to any serious collection
