The Cultivated Collector takes a deep dive on its 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS.
With a historic lineage that includes some of the world’s most influential sports cars, early example Porsche models hold significance as pioneers for the industry-leading automotive manufacturer. Porsche has been using motorsports as the inspiration for developing high-performance road cars, cooperating with homologation regulations that would allow it to be legal for competition use. The car that checks all of those boxes is the Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS, with a total of 1,580 highly-desirable chassis produced at the factory in Stuttgart, Germany. President of The Cultivated Collector Matthew Ivanhoe showcases the dealership’s astonishing 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS in the inaugural episode of Automobiles Of Distinction. The passionate team at The Cultivated Collector of New Canaan, CT take pride in specializing in investment-grade classic and exotic automobiles, and even more specifically, homologation examples with rich motorsport history.

This Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS configuration features a vibrant light yellow exterior finish with contrasting black ‘Carrera’ decals and badging. Its pronounced ‘duck tail’ rear wing proves to be the most notorious aspect of its design, aside from the set of iconic Fuchs wheels. Leaving performance to do its talking, the 911 Carrera 2.7 RS interior takes on a subtle design with black leather/suede layered over the 3-piece seats and rear buckets. The Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 features a 2.7-Liter Flat-Six fuel-injected engine that produces over 210-horsepower 188-ft lbs of torque to its rear wheels. Its traditional 5-speed transmission and 6,300 rpm top-line launch the 911 from 0-60mph in 5.8-seconds, making it the first production car to break the six-second mark set by the German trade journal ‘auto, motor und sport’. With a body made from thin sheet metal, thin windows, and plastic parts, Porsche was able to achieve a 152mph top speed because of its strategic weight reduction.
