Total 911 issue 145 on sale now
Over the last few years, our Rennsport head-to-heads have often focussed on the 911 RSs water-cooled renaissance, from the excellent 997.2 GT3 RS 3.8 and RS 4.0, to technological tour de force that is the latest 991 iteration.
However, for Total 911 issue 145 we have gone back to the legendary RS’s genesis with a battle between two Rennsport legends: the 2.7 Carrera RS Lightweight and it’s super rare successor: the 3.0 Carrera RS.
The 1973 Rennsport may be the poster boy for classic Porsche 911s but is its often forgetten 3.0-litre brother the ultimate air-cooled RS? Our incredible head-to-head hits the open road in the new issue to find out.
Elsewhere in issue 145, we get behind the wheel of the rare Porsche 996 Millennium Edition, the chrome-wheeled Carrera 4 built by the Exclusive Department to herald in the turn of the 21st Century.
Lee also saddles up in the new Porsche 991.2 Turbo S for a road trip to find out if the latest version of the forced induction wonder, laden with ever more technology, can prove as thrilling as the Irish panoramas are stunning.
That’s not all though. Modified Neunelfer enthusiasts can read the story of custom MFI 2.7-litre build and our thoughts on the 9A2 flat six’s tuning potential, while we also get up close and personal with one of the most successful Porsche 993 GT2 Evos ever built.
