Its forbearer, though, was an altogether different beast that was every bit as exciting. Yes, we're talking about the old 911 Carrera RS that blessed the early 1970s. With a mere 1,580 cars built, meant specifically to satisfy the FIA's homologation requirements, the RS is one rare pre-Malaise era cars.<br /><br />Complete with a 2.7-liter flat-six engine, this RS of Mark Haddawy is one of the earlier examples of the breed (later cars received a larger, 3.0-liter engine). Still, it can scamper to 60 miles per hour in a very respectable 5.6 seconds and will happily hit 150 mph in a straight line. Sporting Porsche's iconic duckbill rear spoiler, the equally iconic Fuchs wheels, as well as slew of options, as Haddawy points out, each of the nearly 1,600 RS models is its own unique iteration on the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/porsche/">Porsche</a> performance formula.<br /><br />Take a <a href="/2014/06/04/1973-porsche-911-carrera-rs-petrolicious-video/#continued">look below</a> for the latest video from the crew at <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/petrolicious/"><em>Petrolicious</em></a>.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/04/1973-porsche-911-carrera-rs-petrolicious-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS takes center stage with Petrolicious</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/04/1973-porsche-911-carrera-rs-petrolicious-video/">1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS takes center stage with Petrolicious</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 04 Jun 2014 20:02:00 EST.
