On occasion of the Rennsport Reunion VI at the Californian Laguna Seca race track in September 2018, T.A.G. Books has published a slightly revised author’s edition. Pictures that had missed the printing deadline for the brown/yellow edition (appeared 2015) could now be incorporated into the layout. The Rennsport Reunion VI Editionis identical to the yellow and brown edition except for some minor tweaks, about 40 new photographs, two three fold-out pages with underbody views, the grey cloth binding and the very small print run of only 210 copies.
The Carrera RS book gained 178 pages over the first, sold-out edition of 1992. Many new insights and findings found their way into the 2015/2018 edition. A vast amount of yet unreleased historical photographs illustrate the motorsport career of this legendary model.
The book describes the origin of the "Carrera legend," which is 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.
The revised text goes hand in hand with an abundance of unknown 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 English Rennsport Reunion VI Edition is numbered and limited to 210 copies. It is light grey clothbound and protected by a grey cloth slip case.
