There's only six miles on its clock.
What you’re looking at will surely satisfy the most die-hard of Porsche fans. This 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 is one of just 51 examples produced and has just six miles on its odometer. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s all-original and there’s not another one exactly like it in the entire world. This RM Auction event will take place later next month at Villa Erba, near Lake Como, Italy, and anyone interested in this very special 911 needs to bring their checkbook, backed by a healthy bank account.
The 1993 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 can compete on the track right out of the box, and it vanished into a private collection almost immediately after it was delivered. And that’s where it remained all this time, never having been touched or raced. It’s still covered with the factory-applied Cosmoline coating. Power comes from a 3.8-liter flat-six making 350 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels through an uprated five-speed manual. For the record, that Porsche-declared power output is conservative. It’s more like 375 hp. When these were new, Car and Driver clocked the RSR 3.8 doing 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, which is faster than the Ferrari F40.
Other features included in this special-ordered Porsche is the Polar Silver Metallic paint with the Can Can Red leather interior, including the competition seats, headliner, upper and lower dashboard, steering column and steering wheel, door caps, and the bolt-in roll cage. Even the carpeting and six-point racing harnesses were color-matched. Take note of the silver-faced instruments surrounded with silver-grey leather and the calipers for the huge disc brakes painted in a contrasting gold. How much could this go for? RM Auctions didn’t provide an estimate, but a good guess would be in the low seven-figures. Photos courtesy of RM Auctions.
