Having focused on building, racing and selling Group C cars for over a decade, Porsche finally returned to what was the German company's bread and butter during the days before Group C; GT racing. For Porsche's revived GT effort, an old type name was also brought back; the 911 Carrera RSR but now with 3.8 added, referring to the size of the engine. Like before, the RSR was based on a Carrera RS road car built for homologation purposes. In good Porsche tradition, the new-for-1993 RSR was a success in more than one way as the German manufacturer managed to sell over 50 examples in just a single year and it scored class wins at Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring, while also winning the Spa 24 Hours outright. Not quite as well known as other Porsche competition cars, they have more recently been recognised for what they are. Among the examples featured today are the 1994 Le Mans class winning chassis, which was raced in period by Larbre Competition and has survived in highly original condition. Not quite as original as chassis '496107', which still has its delivery mileage after spending the last 25 years in a private museum. Never driven or even cleaned, it has now been consigned in time-warp condition to RM Sotheby's Villa Erba sale. A truly unique opportunity, this as-new 911 racer is estimated to sell for over two million Euros.
