Discover the holy grail of all Porsche 911s
The Cultivated Collector dives into his 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS.
With a storied lineage that includes some of the world’s most influential sports cars, early Porsche models hold groundbreaking significance for the industry-leading automaker. Porsche used motorsports as inspiration to develop high-performance road cars, cooperating with homologation regulations that would allow them to be legal for use in competition. The car that ticks all of these boxes is the Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS, with a total of 1,580 highly desirable chassis produced at the factory in Stuttgart, Germany. President of The Cultivated Collector, Matthew Ivanhoe, shows off the dealership’s stunning 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS in the inaugural episode of Automobiles Of Distinction. The passionate team at The Cultivated Collector of New Canaan, CT is proud to specialize in investment grade exotic and classic automobiles, and even more specifically, homologation examples with a rich motoring history.
