Porsche's beautiful 911 model has a long history and a well deserved reputation for blistering performance but, in the 1970s, with motor racing in mind, Porsche built some even more muscular 911s - the R, RS and RSR.
John Starkey has spent many years researching and recording the history of these "Super Porsches," and his ongoing quest has resulted in this much enlarged fourth edition of what has become the standard reference work on the RennSport 911s. As well as text revisions and updated individual chassis records, this edition features a new individual chassis record for RS 2.7 models.
Between these covers the reader will find the story of the R, RS and RSR models were developed fro the 911, an international racing and rallying record and individual chassis histories of the 2.7, 2.8 and 3.0 - liter cars. John has also recorded the comments of key figures in the history of these models, including Porsche engineers, racing drivers, racing tea owners and racing team builders.
Altogether, this is the ultimate source book on the R, RS and RSR Porsche 911s.
