Anyone making a personal Top-10 Porsches list would surely have to include the 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7 and 1974 911 Carrera RS 3.0. There’s a much bigger difference between the two than their 0.3-liter cylinder displacement. The RS 2.7 was rare, with just 1,580 made and the car not sold in the U.S. market. In comparison, the RS 3.0 was a unicorn, a homologation special for the 3.0 RSR with just 55 made. That explains the $1.6M-$1.8M pre-sale estimate at RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction in August for what many consider the best RS 3.0 extant. A car with factory provenance, it remains in original condition with just about 18,000 miles.

Porsche last offered its blisteringly fast, track-optimized 911 GT2 RS for 2018-2019, selling about 1,100 in the U.S. It may not be the rarest modern 911 special model, but it remains among the most desirable by the automaker’s ardent collectors and track mavens. Typically optioned, the 911 GT2 RS easily exceeded its $294,000 base price. The 2024 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona is offering a well-optioned 2019 Porsche 911 GT2 RS formerly owned by IndyCar champion Paul Tracy. Offered at no reserve, it will be going to the highest bidder in January.

In 1964, Porsche introduced the 904 Carrera GTS for competition. It was a more focused track machine with an eye on FIA GT racing, and had immediate racing success. This model put Porsche on an endurance racing path that would culminate with its first Le Mans overall wins with the astounding 917 racers in 1970 and 1971.
