followed by a portrayal of earlier Carrera types. The key part of the
book are the chapters that cover the development and technical
specifications of the Carrera RS. The optional equipment is shown in
detail. The technical aspects and motorsport career of the RSR race
version is extensively documented. The research for the new edition
spanned over three full years and the authors were happy that Porsche
opened its archive for them, allowing glimpses of internal notes and
other period documentation.

historical photographic material. The book lists all 1,580 Carrera RS
built, giving all production details on colors, equipment and interior –
the ideal reference book for aficionados, collectors and restorers.
The 434 page strong book has been published in two languages (German
and English). Both editions are numbered and limited to 3,000 copies.
The English version is yellow clothbound and is protected by a brown
