Petrolicious looks at the purity of Porsche’s 911 2.7 RS

Porsche 911 2.7 RS
This new offering from Petrolicious sees Jonathan Segal describing what the 1973 Porsche 911 2.7 RS meant to Porsche and its drivers.

Being a respected architect, Jonathan’s pursuit for purity in the structures he creates clearly transfers to other areas of his life, including his studio and garage. And when you hear him talking about his love for the ‘minimum essence’ in buildings, it’s easy to see how his pursuit of purity has lead him to this stunning Signal Yellow RS model.

Compared with a standard 911S, the hardcore Carrera RS 2.7 had a larger flat-six unit developing 150 kW (210 hp) with Bosch MFI, stiffened suspension, larger brakes, wider rear fenders housing wider wheels, and that iconic a ‘ducktail’ rear spoiler. Thanks to the utilization of thinner glass and thin-gauge steel on parts of the bodyshell, the Lightweight variant undercut its Touring counterpart by 115 kg at 960 kg.
