Ultra Rare Porsche 964 Carrera RS N/GT Goes Up For Auction At A Bargain Basement Price

Written By:

An extreme, ultra-rare, road legal Porsche 911 racing car is set to go up for auction at Silverstone on October 15 at a bargain basement price.

The car in question is a 1991 964 Carrera RS, but what makes it so special is that it is one of just 290 cars built by Porsche to the N/GT spec.

The N/GT was basically the Porsche 911 Cup Car made road legal. The N/GT up for auction is car number 76, and has covered just over 40,233 kilometres since it was bought in 1991.

Car number 76 was first registered in Germany in 1991 and spent 20 years there changing owners twice before it was bought by a Japanese owner and shipped to the land of the rising sun.

It was then bought by a British owner who is now auctioning it off.

Powering the ultra-rare Porsche is a 3.6-litre air cooled flat six engine that produces 261bhp and 310Nm of torque.

Inside, the N/GT, Porsche stripped everything that added a bit too much weight. The seats of the car are one-piece bucket seats that were clad in Nomex.

On the floor, the comfy carpets were stripped out and replaced with of all things - Plywood. Porsche added a long range fuel tank, a roll cage and fire extinguisher system.

However, what makes this car even more interesting is the price. Silverstone Auctions expects it to sell for anywhere between £135,000 (Rs.1.15 crore) - £155,000 (Rs. 1.32 crore).
