1998 Porsche 993 Cup 3.8 RSR
This Porsche 993 Cup 3.8 RSR is the very last car produced of this model. Out of the production of only 45 3.8 RSR built, the last 15 were produced as 1998 models. This very RSR was delivered to Zakspeed Racing in March 1998 as car number 15 out of the 15 1998 models as confirmed by Porsche Weissach Motorsport division. Extra options ordered by Zakspeed Racing were:
- rare cockpit operational front axle stabilizer adjustment. (presently disconnected)
- front 380mm disc brakes for endurance racing
- 100 liter endurance fuel tank
- exhaust system with catalytic converter and muffler for ADAC GT Cup sprint races
Zakspeed entered the RSR in a number of endurance races on the infamous "Green Hell "(Grüne Hölle) the Nürburging Nordschleife. It was one of two 3.8 RSR delivered by Porsche Motorsport to Zakspeed Racing. The present and second owner was racing a BMW M3 in the 2001 24-hours race at the Nürburgring and shared the paddock with Zakspeed. The RSR was mechanically completely revised by Zakspeed to participate in the race. At the time Zakspeed also started campaigning the Dodge Viper GTS-R and it was decided not to run the RSR. It was prior to the 24 hour race that Peter Zakowski, owner of Zakspeed Racing and the present owner shook hands on the sales of the RSR. It was shortly after delivered with a large spare parts package to the present owner who has never raced it since. It only saw a few shake down kilometers at the race tracks of Zolder (Belgium) and Hockenheim Ring (Germany).
The car is now set up with the Le Mans package which includes a complete carbon fiber belly pan, different front spoiler with carbon fiber wings, lightweight Kevlar doors, lightweight engine bonnet with rear Le Mans spoiler, 380mm disc brakes, Le Mans fender flares, larger BBS outer rings and a Zakspeed crosspipe exhaust without a muffler. The original parts in ADAC GT Cup cofiguration are part of the large spare parts package.
With other than a few shake down kilometers the RSR has complete fresh mechanics and is race ready. The tires are tires from 2001 and need to be of course replaced for racing. This Porsche 993 Cup 3.8 RSR qualifies for a number of exciting historic Motorsport events including the Le Mans Classic by Peter Auto. Other races the RSR qualifies for are the Endurance Legends races such as the Silverstone Classic, Estoril (Portugal) and in the USA the Rennsport Reunion at Laguna Seca and the Daytona Historic 24 Hours.
A large spare parts package accompanies this exceptional Porsche race car - the very last of the air cooled Porsche RSR ever produced, still fitted with it's original, completely rebuilt matching numbers engine. The complete list of the spare part package as well as all of the original documents is available on request.
