Last week we featured a pretty rare Polar Silver Metallic RS America that had a few modifications, which will probably hold down its final selling price, but it nonetheless remains a car that we will not come across very often. Now we are going to take that level of rarity up a notch. Here we have a Fly Yellow 1993 Porsche 911 RS America, located in Maryland, with 45,000 miles on it. Unlike the Polar Silver example this RS America retains its originality and looks pristine throughout. Those who have been reading here for a while will know that I love most any bright-colored 911 and that I am particularly fond of those in yellow. So when I came across this one I instantly knew it had to be shared. This is indeed a special car.

1993 RS America in stunning condition, all original, all original paint, all original interior, all original suspension, clear Carfax, all 4 options and one of only 4 ever produced in FLY Yellow … that’s right, ONE OF FOUR!! This car has 45,xxx original documented miles with ZERO paintwork and is stock and unmolested. Factory options include: sunroof, limited slip, and air conditioning. In my tenure with the car (approximately 6.5 years) I’ve added a correct CR-1 radio and installed European RS lowering springs (I have the original RS springs, but they just seem too high for the car!). The car is a multiple concours winner, is wonderful to drive, and a collector’s dream given its rarity (remember only 701 RS America’s were ever produced from 1992-1994 with only 6 cars special color ordered: 4 yellow cars, 1 tourquoise car, and one maritime blue car. ), and of course is numbers matching!! I have the original window sticker, all books, records, manuals, the RS supplement, RS brochure, RS technical booklet, RS rear emblem, and the additional set of keys with the original paper key fob. Given the recent sale of a basic Guards Red RS for $175,000, this one of 4 is a bargain and won’t last long!!! Please call me on my mobile 703-627-9991 with any questions. There is NOTHING to hide on this car and it is in truly spectacular condition!! $209,999
Stunning car, but is it worth $200K? I’m inclined to think the market isn’t there yet, but as I mentioned in last week’s write-up the value of the RS America has shot up so significantly that such a rare example can certainly command a significant premium. It’s also interesting to compare this with auctions of very low-mileage examples, but in one of the standard colors of Red, Black, or White. I assume the Guards Red RS America the seller mentions is just such a low-mileage car and I have seen listings for cars with far fewer miles than this one fail to sale at slightly lower prices than what we see here. In either case, color or ultra-low mileage, you’re dealing with something that is spectacularly rare and should show excellent long-term potential. I would also be curious about the state of the other 3 Fly Yellow cars in existence as that certainly should impact the demand for this car here. Regardless, this always will be one of the more interesting 964s on the market and it’s great to see that it remains in such fine condition!
