Want to see a RS3.0

There’s been quite a lot of Porsche (and particularly classic 911) materials, yet one can simply never get tired of hearing that symphony from an air-cooled flat-6. With the absence of any water/coolant jackets, such raw mechanical sounds left unfiltered and resonates to its immediate and even distant surroundings. Some exhilarating shots of the RS trail-breaking into and flooring out of the bends. By no means, this an easy task in a light weight RR vintage car! This shows the owner is really used to tossing this thing around, thus the familiarity of its handling characteristics. Great to see someone… Read more »

I was almost cringing when he was driving over the center line. Hopefully there was at least a spotter up the road.

This x1000 – I definitely drive spiritedly myself, but the one thing that you can’t do is drive over the yellows. Fast? Go for it – but to go over the yellows where it’s not clear enough to see just ain’t cool and it’s not a good example for your viewers. Apex at the yellow line, not over it. Keep racing for the track….

So there are only 4 Carrerra RS’s in the US? You’ve covered two and Jerry Seinfeld showed his on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Someone needs to track down the 4th.

Reads to me like there were only four officially imported, but there are many more than that now. I personally know of three in restoration or in line for restoration here in Denver, and one sometimes seen on the streets here as well.

Yes. This is true, only 4 imported, legally, to the US. Since then, many more have come to the US.

Fair enough. I’m curious which are the original 4. If you haven’t seen the Seinfeld video, you should check it out. He calls the RS a “dead guy car” because it only changes hands when someone dies.

What a brilliant video about a amazing car. I cant think of anything more drool inducing then seeing a Porsche Carrera RS plow through a corner and hear that exhaust ring out. It is really amazing to see a classic car be able to do such things. I think it just shows us how will built cars could be back in the day. Here you have a 40 year old car that sounds amazing and stills puts up modern performance all while giving you the great mechanical feel that a new car just cant give you. 10/10 petroliocious.

Great car and video. I have seen him driving this car around L.A. a few times and always admired it and given thumbs up, but the question whether it was real or not crossed my mind even though it looked 100\% authentic while passing in traffic. Nice to reconfirm that not only is it real, but that it was Vasek’s car too! Awesome.
