    RS 4.0 and 2.7 RS family gathering!

    Finally the family has come together. The first and last (for now) RS unite. I took delivery of the RS 4.0 (#585) two weeks ago and finally got around to take some pictures of it together with its garage mate, the exactly 40 years older Carrera RS. Both are absolutely sensational cars and as a small two car collection I think it is pretty close to perfection.

    Enjoy!

    Wonderful to see these two great 911s together - the original classic and a future classic.  The perfect RS collection!  Smiley


    Re: RS 4.0 and 2.7 RS family gathering!

    Not close to perfect.  This IS the perfect RS collection.  Big Congrats!

    Outstanding!  Congratulations!  kiss


    Re: RS 4.0 and 2.7 RS family gathering!

    Excellent collection.

    But being me I just don't get the old car's styling, it just looks 'old'. Much prefer the 4.0

    Re: RS 4.0 and 2.7 RS family gathering!

    If you are interested in swapping the 2.7RS for BOTH a very rare Top Trumps card (see my avatar, left) and a 1:18 scale model (posted elsewhere on RT along with my story of my love affair with the car), please let me know.  I will admit that the wing mirror broke off when I unpacked it and I didn't realise I'd lost it until the maid had been through the house with the vacuum cleaner, but apart from that, it's in perfect condition.

    At the very least consider me in your will.

    Perfection is not the right word.  Car nirvana is far, far more appropriate.  Hearty congratulations!

    Phantastic mate! Seeing such nice pictures of the 2.7 in the morning is a good start of the day for me!
    I love pictures of different 911 generations together.

    Apart from the two very nice cars I also like the style of your house SmileySmileySmiley


    Re: RS 4.0 and 2.7 RS family gathering!

    Very sporty! But I think this collection lacks a little touch of luxury...

    If I'm not mistaken the 2.7RS is a 'Touring' spec! Smiley

    I also thought the same thing. Smiley
    Am I correct in thinking from some of the architectural features that that is Sweden, rather than Switzerland? 
    (The houses don't really look "typical" for either of those two countries).

    PureBlue, TargaTim, W8MM, Pilot, GM Austin, easyrider911, SpyderIdol, Joost: Thanks!

    Budster: Funny! That card looks like a real gem. My car was a Porsche press car for a short while and I have a few car magazine articles testing my exact car in 1973. I have been in love with model for ages and can truly say that driving it was even above my expectations after all the hype written about it. A stroke of genius.

    Pierre: That is incorrect! If you look closely on the first picture you can see my grey comfy and luxurious 997 Turbo in the background! :-)

    Porker: That is correct. It is a touring with rear seats. The car just two options: sports seats and head rests. Excellent family race car for four.

    Fritz and MKSGR: Yes it is by the sea in Sweden. The house is originally from 1895.

    The ultimate duo! What a fantastic collection!!

    Stunning. The technical, historical and aesthetic ties between these two cars are indeed impressive. How do you use each of these two?


    Re: RS 4.0 and 2.7 RS family gathering!

    Ferdie: I drive them as much as possible and try use them also for my daily purposes (taking the kids to kindergarten, visiting friends, going shopping etc.). I also use/ will use them both for track days (I just got the  4.0 so the first outing is not until April). The RS 2.7 has the advantage of four seats, but both are just too nice to drive in order not to use them as much as possible. I plan on making a trip to the alps with the RS 2.7 this spring (the car has done just 130.000 km in 40 years and needs some stretching out...) and I will take the 4.0 to Nürburgring during the autumn.


    Re: RS 4.0 and 2.7 RS family gathering!

    I don't think I'd have the balls to drive the 2.7l so much - good for you!

    Two lovely 911, probably the best of the bunch and a lovely house also :)


    Re: RS 4.0 and 2.7 RS family gathering!

    Hi TurboRalf, congratulations to you your RS collection. The 2.7 RS is an amazing car and you can never appreciate it fully until you have driven one.The most fun I ever had in a car was a drive in a 2.7 RS on the Grossglockner (Austria).

    I have a more modest 2.4 S which is a great car but miles behind the RS. Do you plan by chance to attend the celebration in Stuttgart for the 40 years of the RS  in mid September?  Regards Alex
