The '73 Carrera RS (Rennesport) is one of the most desirable variants of the older 911s for collectors. The Carrera name was brought back as a tribute to early 356 class wins in the Carrera Panamerican endurance races in the 50s. It sported a larger 210 hp 2.7L engine, stiffened suspension, lightened body, duck-tail spoiler and widened wheel arches.

AUTOart's model (in eye-popping orange) is another tribute to their consistant quality at a midrange pricepoint. This type of model is right up their alley. Its spartan interior, lacking in trim, is a cake walk for the "masters of plastic" to replicate...it IS plastic.

The body and stance look right. The body panels function properly with tight even shutlines. The finish is perfection and the glazing is crystal clear. It is not in the league of the CMC 901 so items like the vents over the rear window are not duplicated but represented by tampo. It does offer a photoetched screen below the bonnet grill, proper badging and the light groups are first class.

All in all, a very competently executed model of an important piece of Porsche history.
