Porsche built 1,104 examples of the Carrera RS, but along with those were 213 (190 left-hand drive and 23 right-hand drive) track-oriented versions called the Clubsport. The Clubsport was based on the Carrera Cup competition car and specifically conceived as a homologation special for the BPR GT3 and GT4 categories.

The standard 3.6-liter engine of the Carrera RS was bumped up to 3,746-cc by an increase in its bore to 102 millimeters, but it still retained the RS’s standard 76.4-millimeter stroke. This engine was fitted with Porsche’s innovative Varioram intake system and the Bosch Motronic engine-management system, and produced a very healthy 300 bhp at 6,500 rpm and 262 foot-pounds of torque at 5,400 rpm. Power is delivered through a single-mass flywheel to Type G50/31 six-speed manual transmission.

Porsche also focused on making the Clubsport as light as possible. The RS had already been placed on a severe diet through the use of aluminum alloy front hood lid and doors, lightweight interior door cards, thinner glass, and hard-backed Recaro sports seats with six-point racing belts. The headliner was deleted, along with the 993’s electric seats, windows and mirrors, central locking system, intermittent wipers, radio and speakers, rear defroster, and airbags. Added were a full welded-in Matter roll cage, front strut brace, ball-joint front damper mounts, adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars, a battery cut-off switch, and a fire extinguisher. The RS Clubsport was fitted with 18-inch diameter, three-piece center-lock “Speedline for Porsche” aluminum wheels with magnesium centers. A special front air splitter and large rear wing made the Clubsport unique.

This stunning example was delivered on 29 November 1995 in Speed Yellow (X4) with black cloth (AJ) seats and to German-market specifications. Notably, it was optioned with air conditioning. This Clubsport’s first known residence was in Japan, as noted by numerous service stickers in the engine bay and invoices from the noted Prestige Motorsport in Tokyo. It was later imported to Canada, where it was serviced in 2013 by JB Motorsports in Vancouver. It was subsequently sold to the current owner, who had the car serviced by Riegel Tuning in Alberta in 2014.

Showing 31,417 kilometers (19,521 miles), this RS Clubsport is barely broken in, and is supplied with its original owner’s manuals and service booklets in their leather pouch, the original tool roll, jack, and collapsible spare in the front compartment, and service invoices. It was imported under Show & Display, and is fully street-legal and titled in the U.S.

This Carrera RS Clubsport promises its new owner many thrilling miles ahead.
