The new edition of the Carrera RS book gained 178 pages over the first, sold-out edition of 1992. Many new insights and findings found their way into the 2015 edition. A vast amount of yet unreleased historical photographs illustrate the motorsport career of this legendary model.
The book describes the origin of the 'Carrera legend,' which is followed by a portrayal of earlier Carrera types. The key part of the book are the chapters that cover the development and technical specifications of the Carrera RS. The optional equipment is shown in detail. The technical aspects and motorsport career of the RSR race version is extensively documented. The research for the new edition spanned over three full years and the authors were happy that Porsche opened its archive for them, allowing glimpses of internal notes and other period documentation.
The book features an abundance of unknown historical photos, lists all 1580 Carrera RS built, giving all production details on colours, equipment and interior - the ideal reference book for aficionados, collectors and restorers. The 434-page English version is numbered and limited to 3 000 copies. It is yellow clothbound and protected by a brown cloth slip case.
Please note this copy is one of the press copies. This means it is not numbered and has a note addressed to the original recipient.
