Artcurial’s Automobiles sur les Champs sale is scheduled for October 22 — and among the lots on offer is a fully documented 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.8 RSR.
The car on offer is one of 51 3.8L examples built, with race history that includes a sixth overall finish at the 24 Hours of Daytona.
The car was originally delivered in San Diego, finished in Grand Prix White and fitted with a 40/40 limited slip differential, two racing seats with six-point harnesses, 18-inch RS 3.8 wheels, and Atiwe leather steering wheel, G50/10 five-speed gearbox, a 120-litre fuel tank, manual steering, no airbags and Le Mans exhaust. In ’94, it raced in the IMSA Championship by the A.R.E Team, including at Laguna Seca, Portland and Phoenix. Its best result was that sixth at Daytona — and second in its class — in 1996.
The car was completely torn down and restored in the 2010s by Porsche IMSA Routen, under the direction of Raymond Narac, in its Exxon livery.
Artcurial estimates it to be worth from €900,000 to €1,200,000 — or $950,000 to $1,270,000.
