What’s the difference between the Sport and Touring models of the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS? How did Porsche drop over 200 pounds from the RS to get the M471 model down to fighting fit? What’s the history of Porsche’s special Grand Prix White paint color? Where’s the collector market on these incredible examples of Porsche sporting history? What more could you possibly want to know about the 2.7 RS? You name it, Road Scholars is here to help you navigate the world of Porsche’s first RennSport model.
If there is anyone who might know the answers to all of these questions and more, it’s Cam Ingram from Road Scholars. He’s been surrounded by incredible Porsches like these for his entire life, and has probably driven just about every Porsche ever made. To call him an expert would be under selling it.
In the short video you’ll learn a bit about these crazy cool vintage lovelies. It’s also an opportunity to get up close and personal with a trio of cars that mere mortals don’t normally get to set foot anywhere near. Only 1308 examples of the Touring (M472) and 200 examples of the Sport (M471) were built in 1973, and while the value curve of these has flattened out lately, they’re still incredibly expensive to purchase, own, maintain, and insure. If you have the means, we highly recommend it.
