Porsche Classic will showcase its comprehensive service offering from March 21 to 25, 2012, at the world's largest Classic trade fair in Essen. One of the highlights of the exhibit is the renowned 911 Carrera RS 2.7, which is on its 40th year in 2012. To celebrate, Porsche will be showcasing two racing 911 Carrera RS variants from the Porsche Museum at the new location in Hall 7.0.

One of these is the 1973 vintage 911 Carrera RSR, which generates 330 hp. Meanwhile, the 911 Carrera RSR Turbo, which dates back to 1974, can manage an astounding 500 hp with a measly 2.1 liter displacement. To conclude the "40 years of the 911 Carrera RS" anniversary, a 911 Carrera RS 2.7 will be presented. This model has been restored by the specialists at Porsche Classic workshop.

Also to be exhibited is an early Porsche 911 unit. It is being currently restored for a client at Porsche Classic. Experts at Porsche Classic will be available during the exhibit in order to provide advice and offer practical assistance to guests with regard to the maintenance and preservation of the historic automobiles.

They will also provide information about the Porsche Classic original spare parts' availability such as the most sought-after "orange" Porsche bonnet badge for the 911 units with model years from 1965 to 1973.

Since 1974, this component is no longer available but will be released again this year. Classic Fuchs wheels, complete wings, and other components show that Porsche Classic has a keen interest in preserving these sports car treasures. The specialists' collection comprises the repair, restoration and maintenance of classic Porsche road automobiles and the provision of original spare components.
