Chassis # 911 460 9103
1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RS
One of Six – Right Hand Drive
The ex-Alan Hamilton / Australian delivered
One of six, right-hand drive Porsche Carrera 3.0 RS Coupes ever built by Porsche.
This special group of cars form an exclusive part of a total of just fifty-four Carrera 3.0 RS Coupes built by the factory and which homologated a further-developed RS for the 1974 model year ‘G-Series’ body enabling development of the Group 4 3.0 RSR. The 3.0 RS was road legal and fitted with a 2933cc (type 911/77) 230hp single-plug engine, which was perfectly suited to either road use or for Group 3 competition and rallies. As with the 2.7 Carrera RS, its 3.0-litre successor was lightened by the use of thin-gauge steel, simplified interior with lightweight equipment and fibreglass front and rear bumpers, engine and bonnet lids. The steel front wings were widened to accommodate 8-inch-wide Fuchs 5-stud alloy wheels at the front and 11-inch rims at the rear, whilst for circuit use, 9-inch front and 14-inch rear rims could be fitted. Porsche 917 brake callipers were also fitted all round as standard equipment on the Carrera 3.0 RS, which completed the package.
Five were delivered new to the UK via AFN:
Chassis 9092 – Mexico Blue
Chassis 9097 – Guards Red
Chassis 9098 – Black
Chassis 9099 – Light Yellow
Chassis 9100 – Grand Prix White
