Rare 964 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Touring heading for auction

A rare Porsche 911 is set to go under the hammer at the upcoming October Silverstone Auction. Like the recently announced GT3 Touring, the 964 Carrera RS was also offered in a lesser known ‘Touring’ spec. This model offered the popular upgraded chassis found in the Carrera RS, with some of the luxuries added back in to make it easier for everyday usability.

The Touring model used the popular Carrera RS chassis, with a mildly upgraded powertrain, but added back in sound deadening, rustproofing and the interior trim that was removed to save weight on the Carrera RS. Only 11 right hand drive Touring models were built and of those only 6 made it to the UK, making this car a rare model that provides superb handling and power, with everyday usability at the forefront.

This true icon will be going under the hammer on the 20th October and is estimated to reach between £185-£200k.
