Porsche has pulled off the cover of the first Porsche 911 RS Tribute to the Carrera RS to reach the United States. This special edition model pays homage to one of the most iconic of 911 models and was announced in 2022. Today it was shown to members of the media in person for the first time before an initial viewing opportunity for the public at Sebring International Raceway during the 12 Hours of Sebring race from March 15 to 18. Initial deliveries to customers will begin in only a few weeks.

“This package pays tribute to the 911 Carrera RS 2.7, an absolute driver’s car and an icon,” said Kjell Gruner, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “Today, nothing epitomizes the idea of a driver’s car more than the new 911 GT3 RS. Like the original, it uses cutting edge aerodynamics to achieve incredible performance, making this a perfect homage to the legend from 1973.”

The Tribute to Carrera RS Package includes unique styling elements for both the exterior and interior, a bespoke Porsche Design timepiece and several accessories specifically created for the car. Those accessories focus on the details and include a custom car cover, RS valve stem caps with script in Python Green, key caps in Python Green, custom license plate frames, and a pair of 1:43 scale model cars; one being the 1973 Carrera RS and the other a replica of the new car.

Specially colored Exclusive Manufaktur elements unique to the package include magnesium wheels painted in Python Green, Python Green mirror caps and GT3 RS side graphics. PORSCHE script on the underside of the wing and a GT3 RS graphic on the rear bumper continues the theme, which is completed by a special RS logo on the wing end plates featuring the American flag.

The standard Weissach Package adds a significant amount of exposed carbon fiber to both the interior and exterior, as well as chassis components in the same material. Customers may also opt to have the hood and roof painted in body color at no added cost while still adding the performance benefits exclusive to the Weissach Package. These include weight-saving Magnesium wheels. The package also adds carbon fiber anti-roll bars, coupling rods, and a shear panel in the same material.

Several special interior modifications also set cars equipped with the package apart. These include deviated stitching in green, illuminated door sill guards with “Tribute to Carrera RS” script, a center console lid embossed with the “RS” logo and keys painted in white.

The 2023 911 GT3 RS equipped with the unique Tribute to Carrera RS Package will carry a total MSRP of $312,550, not including a $1,450 delivery, processing, and handling fee. You can grab a detailed look at the media gallery of this special edition model right below.
