The last of the air-cooled 911s, the 993, has become a modern classic, and this 1996 Carrera RS Clubsport is one of the ultimate versions. Stripped to the bare essentials, the RS Clubsport throws out nearly everything you don't need on the track — carpeting, air conditioning, rear seat, and soundproofing material are all gone, with the only nod toward civility being a cassette deck. The body shell is seam welded to increase rigidity, with thinner glass and aluminum used throughout to further reduce weight. Bilstein dampers lower the ride height and larger brakes along with adjustable rollbars further improve the track-focused credentials. The 3.0-liter flat-six makes 300 horsepower mated to a six-speed manual with gears one through three shortened for better acceleration. The example here has only 38,000 miles and two owners since new and is in highly original condition, including untouched paint. With its combination of rarity and its place in Porsche history, RS Clubsport is a must for any true Porsche enthusiast.
