Porsche RS set to star at Silverstone

| 8 May 2012

This superb 1973 Porsche 911 2.7 RS looks likely be the diamond among seven Porsches at Silverstone Auctions’ spring sale on 16 May.

Thought to be one of the best Porches ever built, the RS has been estimated to raise between £190-200,000.

It recently visited Swiss Porsche specialist Marc De Siebenthal for a complete restoration, is fitted with original factory options, has been prepared for light competition and comes with FIA HTP papers.

Joining the RS will be a 1970 911 T (£22-26,000), a 1981 911 SC Ferry Porsche Special edition (£20-25,000), a 1984 911 RSR replica (£25-30,000) and a 1988 Carrera Sport (£12-15,000).

As well as the 911s there will be a rare 928 S2 Strosek manual (£14-18,000) and a 1989 944 S2 offered at no reserve, but estimated at £3500.

“The Porsche marque commands some fierce loyalty from its followers, so we expect interest to be particularly strong in all seven Porsche models,” said Silverstone Auctions’ managing director Nick Whale.

The sale will also feature classics and race cars spanning more than 90 years. Find out more here.
