Porsche started to work on the RSR project at the end of 1971 season, after the prohibition of the 917. Based on the 911, this competition car will be tested on several configurations until its definitive version, the 3.0 liters, at the beginning of 1974 season. Only 52 cars were built: 42 in 1974 and 10 in 1975.
It received a complete Race Pack as the magnesium 917 wheels increasing a lot the width, the hood and trunk were made of plastic fibers and the sides and rear windows were in plastic, limiting the total weight under 950 kg. All around the car have been placed openings in the bodywork in order to optimize the mechanical elements cooling, and the rear whale tail spoiler increases the stability at high speed and force the air to cross and cool the engine as well. To manage this racing beast, the 3.0 liters flat 6 receives a double ignition Bosch system, a 5-manual gearbox and develops 330 horsepower at 8000 rpm! It was so efficient that even when the more powerful 934 and 935 were available, many teams preferred the Carrera RSR, and won later competitions like Sebring 1976 or Daytona 1977. For the 74’ season, Porsche factory did not enter any Carrera 3.0 RSR but 2 German racing teams did with semi-official factory support: GELO RACING, four cars and TEBERNUM, three cars.
This Porsche Carrera 3.0 RSR was the only one delivered new to TEBERNUM owner, Franz-Joseph Weisskopf, in 1974 with chassis N° 460 9062, and competed during the 74’ season!
As part of an important collection from the 2nd December 1990, his owner participated 10 times to Le Tour Auto and 3 times to Le Mans Classic. This Carrera RSR received a complete restoration at Porsche Classic workshop from November 2006 to April 2007 and it has always been maintained at the top of racing preparation.
Eligible for the historical races, the car will be delivered with a complete restoration CD with many pictures, bills, Porsche Certificate, FIA Passport and its fully documented maintenance history. Even today, the Carrera 3.0 RSR is considered as one of the best racing Porsche ever built.
