The German automaker is not only enjoying spectacular new vehicle sales, but it’s also becoming a cult brand for the auctioneers – as pricing of late-model, air-cooled Porsche 911s are at an all-time high as of late.
In the near future, during the dedicated Porsche sale headed by Silverstone Auctions’, another prized and very rare example will become available: a 1991 911 Carrera RS NGT. The 964-generation Carrera RS was being introduced back in 1991 and the rework of the 3.8-liter, flat-six engine brought the power up to 260 horsepower (194 kilowatts). It also took advantage of close-ratio gears and a limited slip differential, a lower and stiffer suspension, as well as ditched power steering. And thanks to the engineers stripping the interior to its bare essentials, weight was also lowered by a marvelous 345 pounds (155 kilograms).
And the NGT appeared as a bare-metal interior and FIA-spec, welded-in rollcage – a vehicle that could be taken from the dealership and directly thrown into the bare-metal interior and FIA-spec, welded-in rollcage. And it’s also completely road legal, with this particular example – a Maritime Blue numbered 76 of 290, actually never reaching the grid. The auction house states it has the full service history, and it’s looking great inside and out, with just 25,000 miles (40,000 kilometers) on the odometer. The company estimates it can fetch £135,000 to £155,000 ($176,000 to $200,000).
