911 Carrera RS 3.8 – 300 ch [1995 à 1996]

Porsche 993 Carrera RS road test

“You must push it,” says this 993 Carrera RS Clubsport’s owner, Omar. That’s fine for him to say, but the paradox of driving cars like this is exactly that – driving them.

Just 227 993 Carrera RS Clubsports were ever built. I’m sat in one now, a genuine 993 Carrera RS with the under-bonnet sticker containing the essential 003 code. That signifies Group N GT1 Carrera RS, simply ‘Clubsport’ or, in some markets, ‘RSR’.

My surroundings confirm that: the interior is devoid of anything other than the bare necessities, which means three pedals, a gearstick and a steering wheel. It feels pure race car, because that’s what it is.

A little bit more deciphering of those codes reveals that when ordered it came with a 197 88Ah battery, 459 strut brace, 471 Carrera RS Sports spoilers, 564 no airbag, 567 graduated tint windscreen, 573 air conditioning, 657 power steering and 990 cloth seats.

All came with most of these, the air conditioning optionally (and sensibly) added, as has a powered passenger window, the switch for it located in front of the gear lever in the middle, usually a blanked-off switch position in these. As a C11 model it was originally supplied to Austria, is left-hand-drive and finished in L39E Riviera blue, that bold colour covering every bit of the RS’s beautifully exposed bodywork. 

There’s plenty of it: the rear-view mirror, sat beside a sole sun visor, is filled with the stunning hue, the criss-crossing cage that fills the rear and braces down the door apertures as well as the entire rear area being covered in the bright finish.

There’s no carpet anywhere, save for a couple of mats in the front footwells. The lightweight, fixed seatbacks weren’t a stranger to the spray gun either, the lack of anything even as ‘luxurious’ as headlining means the colour is on the roof above, too.

You’d have to have been intent on really using the Clubsport as intended to pay the additional £5,250 it added to the regular RS’s £62,250 sticker price and, really, like the colour you picked, because there’s no escaping it when you get inside. 

For that additional outlay you lost equipment, the Clubsport binning the RS’s luxuries, such as they were, for an even more purposeful specification. It existed as a means to homologate the Carrera for the BPR GT3 and GT4 categories and is based on the Carrera Cup car, as well as giving more track-focused customers an even more focused machine.

Porsche’s 993 Carrera RS Is Like A GT3 Before The GT3 Existed

Porsche’s GT range, at least as we understand it today, began with the 993 GT2. That rear-wheel drive, 444 horsepower, aggressively flared monster was the first use of the GT moniker on a modern Porsche. However, the car that came to define the GT line, the GT3, has much more in common with this car; the Carrera RS. Though it does not share the GT name, this 993 shares many of the hallmarks of the GT3 road cars. Though power was up only slightly compared to contemporary Carreras, the RS primarily improved performance by shedding weight. Indeed, the Carrera RS is 600lbs lighter than a 993 Turbo. Just 1,104 were produced over the model’s two year run, and Doug DeMuro is here to show you its quirks and features.

A Porsche of this stature may call for more than even Doug’s typical exuberance, so please accept this very excited German man as a substitute. While Mr. DeMuro’s usual videos focus on the many pieces of equipment found in most modern cars, the Carrera RS is rather the opposite. The RS is defined mostly by what it lacks compared to a standard 993. Without rear seats, door pockets, or a sunroof, the car doesn’t have much in the way of gadgets to keep Doug entertained. As a result, this is one of his shortest features in quite some time.

Though it was not officially a GT car, this 296 horsepower, lightweight, naturally-aspirated 993 shares much of what makes the later water-cooled GT3 cars so appealing. Though down on power, even compared to the earliest 996 GT3, the 2,750lb Carrera RS remains a potent performer today. Just look at Doug’s face from behind the wheel.
