“The same engineers who developed the Carrera Cup race cars are responsible for the brilliant RS America; their goal: the incomparable feel of a race car through reduced weight, odified steering, nd firmer, portier suspension. To save weight, hey eliminated the air-conditioning system, ower steering pump, nd sunroof and replaced the rear seats with a storage compartment. The retractable rear spoiler, otor, nd mechanism were replaced with a lightweight fixed tail spoiler.” Thus reads the Porsche factory brochure for the 911 RS America Coupe, model specifically created for the U.S. market in place of the European-only 964 Carrera RS.
The RS America used the body shell and glass from the standard “P” program 964 Carrera 2, nd it retained that model’s engine, anual transmission, rakes, nd safety features. The RSA had specially upholstered front seats, hich were covered in a black corduroy fabric, nd as noted in the factory’s marketing materials, he 964’s rear jump seats were removed to help reduce weight. The model retained its electric window lifts, ut the regular door trim panels were replaced with simple lightweight cards similar to those used on the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7. When all was said and done, he RS America weighed just under 3,000 pounds. Only 84 examples were built for the U.S. market in 1994.
The car wass fitted with a type M64/01 3.6-liter engine that could produce 247 brake horsepower at 6,100 rpm and 310 Nm of torque at 4,800 rpm. Its power was delivered through the very tractable G50 five-speed manual transmission, nd its standard wheels were 17x7J with 205/50ZR17 tires in the front and 17x8J with 255/40ZR17 tires in the rear. Large power-assisted ventilated disc brakes were more than up to the task of slowing the car from speed. Contemporary road tests showed this package was capable of quite brilliant performance, s it could reach 0–60 mph in 5.4 seconds and had a top speed of 162 mph.
