Ferrari Yellow 1993 Porsche 911 RS America – 1 of 4

I am a fan of the RS America. I feel like I need to say this because I know sometimes the car is criticized for being somewhat half-hearted. Meaning: it isn’t really that close to the Carrera RS that it serves to replace for the US market. I understand those criticisms; they are certainly valid. I like it anyway. I like the look, I especially like the whale tail on a 964, and I like that it’s a bit paired down from the standard Carrera 2. I don’t like the current prices and I know a hefty amount of the current criticism of the model stems from those prices and whether those prices make sense. That’s a different conversation.

I also like yellow cars, especially bright yellow cars. So as you can imagine I really like this Ferrari Yellow 1993 Porsche 911 RS America. It is one of only four produced in this color and given the limited colors available as standard that makes this one stand apart even more. It was spec’d with three of the four available options: radio, A/C, and sunroof. Interestingly, we’ve featured one of the other three existing cars before. Only two more for the whole set!

This is one (1) of Four (4) Ferrari Light Yellow RS Americas produced by Porsche in M.Y.1993.

This RS has been well taken care of. Having only 30,873 original miles, the car has been to many shows and rallys, but has never been “tracked”, so to speak. The car has yellow belts and door handles/pulls, as well as black sport seats. Hidden in the driver rear compartment is a high-end Alpine amplifier, with an additional CD changer, mounted directly above. The car was outfitted with a clear bra approximately 2005. The car has an extensive file of documentation containing ownership and service history (original bill of sale & delivery report), AND both of the ORIGINAL window stickers issued by Porsche for the car, as well as all the original RS brochures, Owner’s manuals, NY Autoshow pics etc. (see below). This is a very rare Porsche with full and complete service history and ownership history/provenance. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an incredibly rare and superb representation of the legend that is the RS America. Please email or call me with any questions. Serious inquiries only, please. Good luck and happy bidding!!!

For those who are critics of the high prices for the RS America, you might want to look away. Given that the higher pricing of these cars stems from the combination of their relative rarity and that they are a performance upgrade it should make sense that a very rare version of said model would attract even higher prices. But this is absurd. The other Ferrari Yellow RSA we featured had an asking price just under $210K. The mileage was similar, albeit slightly higher. That one sold, I don’t recall for precisely how much, but we can assume it was pretty close to asking. Adding nearly another $100K? That doesn’t seem realistic. We’ll have to see how this auction plays out to get a better sense of the market, but with the air-cooled 911 market itself not what it once was I can’t really see it happening.

This is a great car and a car I would love to own. But for $300K I think I can find plenty of other options and still be quite happy.

  1. RS Americas are the most over valued German modern collectible, after the e36 M3 lightweight. The RSA is basically a regular C2 with a sport package. Engine is same, suspension is the regular M030 sport suspension, interior is cloth with regular C2 sport seats. To review; no special engine, no special suspension, no weight savings ( unless you count rear seat and a/c delete). Compare to the real 964 RS with lightweight construction, seam welded body, race suspension, bucket seats, specially prepared 3.6 engine. I could see these RSAs being worth 10-20% more than a comparable C2 ( they were $10k less when new!), but current values are silly! And don’t get me started on the M3 Lightweight.

  2. the very definition of a bubble car…..that being said, I’m surprised RS fever is still on the rise and shows no signs of waning. As for me, I’ll buy the Irish Green 964 3.6 that was on here a while back for $225k and a used 991S with the remaining $75k.

  3. First auction ended at $157,600. It’s back up for another round and with $50K knocked off the BIN price.

  4. Please tell me what you know biut this car and what the real value should be thank you
