Porsche has always striven to maintain its racing pedigree by providing factory cars for enthusiasts who desire to live the life of a weekend racer. In some cases those cars were produced so as to meet homologation standards, but in others, like with the 964 RS America, the cars were produced at the behest of a customer base that demanded something more than the standard car. While mechanically quite similar to a base 964 Carrera, its stripped interior and host of deleted items allowed the RS America to come in at under 3000 lbs and provide Porsche’s customers with a base for taking their car to the track. The car featured here, a White 1993 Porsche 911 RS America located in Florida, was originally a fully-optioned car, but has subsequently had the A/C and radio deleted. This car also features an interior fully outfitted for racing and front and rear spoilers from the RSR and Carrera RS respectively.

I’m guessing the lack of originality, both with regard to the interior and with the deleted radio and A/C may hold down the sale price here. While all of these things make the car better on the track, the RS America is reaching that stage in its life where it’s not quite a vintage racer but also quite likely to be viewed by many buyers as a collector rather than a track car. With that said, the Buy It Now price here doesn’t seem outrageous, but I’d imagine it’s a few thousand dollars above market. Still, this appears to be a well sorted example that’s sure to provide quite a bit of fun.
