The Midnight Blue 1994 Porsche 911 RS America we featured in early March is back up for sale and again looks to be struggling to garner sufficient attention to meet the seller’s asking price. With one of the rarer color choices available on these cars and pretty reasonable mileage we’ll have to see if this one can finally find the right buyer.
CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1994 Porsche 911 RS America on eBay
The below post originally appeared on our site March 1, 2015:
After what seemed like a run of RS Americas back in the Fall, it has now been a while since we have featured one so why not check back in on what was a rapidly accelerating market for these special 964s. The RS America, of course, was Porsche’s answer to US demand for something akin to the 964 Carrera RS. Based on the Carrera 2, the RS America shared the same powerplant and gearbox with other 964 models, but was lightened through a basic stripping of the interior, including the removal of the rear seats, and then fitted with sport suspension and whale tail. They were never really intended as a full replication of the European Carrera RS, but still provided buyers a Carrera 2 with far fewer luxuries and thus lighter overall weight. Available in only a small range of colors, with the majority produced in Black, White, or Red, here we have one of the optional colors: a Midnight Blue Metallic 1994 Porsche RS America, located in California, with 52,987 miles on it that appears to have been fitted with three of the four available options: A/C, sunroof, and radio.

Chequered Flag International is pleased to offer this 1994 911 RS Coupe in Midnight Blue with Black cloth interior. 52,987 miles with clean CARFAX of course. Perfect rust and accident free body with very good original paint (buyer to verify). Lovely interior, not smoked in. Uncracked dash, great roof liner, door panels and carpets. Seats are all great with the exception of one of the rear jump seat backs which has a small hole (shown) – I’m trying to source the fabric and replace that panel if and when. Just serviced and checked. New clutch assembly just fitted. Mechanically absolutely superb and a delight to drive. A/C is cold, sunroof and windows function well. Factoid – around 700 RS America’s produced in 93 & 94 of which only 67 or so were 94’s. I believe a total of seven were built in Midnight Blue. Comes with all its books including it’s maintenance book stamped to 22k in 2000 and with it’s option code sticker. Plus comprehensive records dating back to new. Plus: two keys, toolkit, jack, air pump, etc. Inspections encouraged, all sales AS-IS. Sales tax and license fees due if delivered in California.
While the BIN price is on the high end, I’m still quite surprised this auction sits with zero bids. There may be some detail that is escaping me, but this looks to be a fairly well-documented RS America in original condition that comes with all of its books and appears in pretty good shape inside and out. Perhaps demand for these has begun to wane, but given that most any rare variant of the 964 has continued to do very well on the market, I would be surprised by that. For anyone interested in one of these this may be one to pay attention to because if interest remains low then there could be some value found here.
