Porsche 911 SC/RS Sports Cars From The Porsche Museum – Video
Having previously driven the 911 and 911 R, Elford and Larrousse could this time take to the streets on Napoleon’s home island behind the wheel of the two 911 SC/RS vehicles from the Porsche Museum – namely, unit numbers 1 and 5: Number 1 is a restored copy of one of the 20 lightweight and high-performance 911 models built by Porsche as a special series in 1984. Number 5 is still the original homologation car, which also acted as the company car of legendary race engineer Roland Kussmaul. Both resplendent racing cars have a 3.0-litre naturally aspirated engine and conventional rear-wheel drive.
This 911 for both road and track have been homologated for use in Group B with a focus on rallying. Tweaks to the engine saw the power rise from the series-production 204 hp to a sporty 250 hp, while a variety of weight-reducing measures have brought the sports car down to just 960 kg. The 911 SC/RS models were supplied exclusively in white – a canvas for the sponsors’ paintwork.
