Supplied by Mizwa Motors Corporation, 2-7-1 Meguro-Honcho, Meguro-Ku, Tokyo 152, Japan the above was supplied to a private owner who owned and retained the car for his sole personal use. It has never been tracked and therefore never raced. Purchased direct from the private owner the vehicle was shipped to the UK by James Kaye of JKR Performance Engineering, Southampton. It was duly registered with the DVLA at Swansea on 1st May 2015.
Upon arrival in the UK, having covered 13, 128 Kms from new, the car was transported to Clark & Carter, the renown Porsche specialist located in Cressing in Essex. Once its originating had been confirmed by Steve and Jamie Clark they were instructed to re-commission and detail the car. Remarkably, the bodywork was exactly as it had been delivered new. It was totally un-blemished and the original paintwork required nothing other than a buff and polishing. The wheels were professionally refurbished before a new set of Pirrelli tires were fitted. To provide the opportunity for instruction an OEM passenger seat was fitted, as were new a new set of harnesses. The original harnesses remain with the vehicle.
Upon completion of the works the car was never driven. Indeed, the car remained with Clark & Carter until July 2020 when it was taken by transporter to the Official Porsche Centre in Tonbridge. The odometer reading on the car upon arrival was 13, 606 kms.

Not for the faint at heart, the Porsche 993 Cup 3. 8 RSR offers to the one rises to the challenge, the opportunity to live an automotive fantasy. As this German warbird tears its way up the straight with a baritone, staccato bellow, you feel the power surge from the engine through the rear wheels. The chassis vibrates vigorously, giving a sense of what it’s really capable of.
When Porsche released the Porsche 911 Carrera RS in ‘73, they didn’t do so in the hope of creating a road car legend. Instead, it was a means of getting the 911 Carrera RSR homologated for Group 4 racing. In ‘73, the 2. 8-litre Porsche 911 Carrera RSR would start the season in victorious fashion, a Brumos-entered car winning the ‘73 24 Hours of Daytona with Peter Gregg and Hurley Haywood at the wheel.
By the end of May ‘73, the factory Martini Racing team had added a triumph at the Targa Florio before the ’73 RSR was modified with a 3. 0-litre engine for that year’s Le Mans 24 Hours. This engine would go on to power the 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR, a car that dominated Group 4 racing for the next two years, in the hands of various independents such as Gelo Racing and Kremer Racing, while a 2. 8/ 3. 0 RSR hybrid competed in the US IROC series during the 1973/ 74 winter.
‘74 would also bring about the Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo RSR 2. 1, a prototype racing machine that, remarkably, finish second overall in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, proving the forced induction concept to the Stuttgart board. During 76, Zuffenhausen was solely focussed on turbocharging, launching the 934 and 935 version of the Porsche 930. Initially, the former was known as the Porsche 911 Turbo RSR but before long, ‘934’ became the standard nomenclature.
Throughout the ‘80’s, the GT classes disappeared from Le Mans but, for their return in 1993, Porsche readied the 964 Carrera RSR, complete with a 3. 8-litre flat six and extravagant wings and spoilers. In the hands of Joël Gouhier, Dominique Dupuy and Jürgen Barth (the new RSR being the latter’s brainchild), a Larbre Compétition 964 Carrera RSR took GT victory at Le Mans, with further wins at the 24 Hours of Spa and the 1000km of Suzuka.
From ‘95, the RSR denomination once again disappeared from the tracks as Porsche focussed its efforts on the GT1 and GT2 versions of its recently released 993 platform but, In ‘96 Porsche developed a race car to take part in national championship series in Europe, Japan and the United States. The stripped-down race car was officially named the 911 Cup 3. 8 RSR. Customers and private teams could choose between three distinct factory built 3. 8 litre engines, each one tuned to a different specification and designed for the appropriate class of competition. A true factory-build race car, the 993 Cup 3, 8 RSR with 350 PS at 6, 900 rpm was at 1, 200 kg, a super lightweight track weapon and the last truly hand-made 911.
A total of 45 Carrera Cup cars were produced between 1996 and 1998. Chassis number 9802 was one produced in 1997. It was fitted with the M64/ 75 motor with its bespoke pistons and high lift cams is generates 350 PS at 6, 900 rpm was specifically tuned for endurance competition accompanied by the optional 75 litre fuel tank.
An endurance race competitor the RSR was equipped with the Premier Aluminium Fuel Cell (FIA and SCCA specifications) which was installed at the Porsche factory with all the required plumbing and quick filler neck.
With limited creature comforts it was assembled by the factory with a fully welded Matter roll cage and all the required safety systems such as the twin Sabelt six-point harnesses, Recaro racing seat, Werner Clubsport fire extinguisher and engine kill switches. The Porsche branded 350mm high grip Momo steering wheel with a 70 mm dish that allows the wheel to be moved closer to the driver. It also provides for greater leverage and quicker steering corrections. A SPA 3-stage shift light module is on the dash.
This car is completed its original engine and similarly original close-ratio 6-speed synchronized gear box. The gearbox is precise and functions impeccably throughout the entire power band from 0-60 mph in 4. 2 seconds to a top speed over 175 mph.
The independent front suspension coil-overs and multi-link fully adjustable rears and the camber are set in a neutral position for optimized open road use. Air Jacks, that have never been used, remain fitted for race pit stops. The BBS modular 18-inch centre-lock wheels with magnesium centres are fitted with new high-speed tyres (235 front and 295 rear)
The bodywork is almost indistinguishable from new. The Glacier White paintwork is free of imperfections as is the condition of the composite flairs. Paint metre readings are 4-6 ml on the four wings, both doors, the bonnet and the roof attesting to the unquestionable provenance of the car.
Although built as a solo racer and configured as such, a matching Recaro bucket seat has now been added for company.
