We are back on track with more build-specific content, and what we have here today is a 1995 Porsche 993 RS Clubsport tribute build by Tune RS Motorsports in Florida. It’s difficult to limit the amount of Porsche builds that we feature here, especially when the outcome is as factory correctly done as this example. Since we in the United States never received the 993 RS model, the shop took it upon themselves to recreate it but as the even more rare factory Clubsport lightweight version using all factory parts gathered for years before the build. They then took it to the next level with a few upgrades too that the originals did not benefit from, which we will cover on the next page. So hop in, let’s take this one for a virtual spin…
Starting with a stock 1995 993, Tune RS stripped it to the bone and then started it’s rebuild. They installed the roll cage, then repainted it in Riviera Blue before all of factory correct RS Clubsport parts we put on.
Tune RS bored and stroked the 993’s 3.6 liter air cooled engine out to 3.8, same as the original limited edition factory cars, and same as the Cup race cars as well.
A sunroof-less carbon fiber roof skin replaced the aluminum, and JIC Cross Adjustable suspension was used in conjunction with factory Cup car adjustable sway bars and Brembo Big Red Brakes.
315 horsepower with 370 Nm of torque is fed through a G50 6 speed transmission that benefits from use of steel synchros.
Correct center lock Speedline rims were thankfully chosen, as it is a nit pick with us when we see a car with the incorrect impostor wheels. Often we will overlook a whole build as soon as we see the wrong wheels, since it often is a tell tale sign of a corner cutting build. The exception being BBS E88’s, of course.
We also appreciate that a tasteful Momo steering wheel was used, along with all of the correct factory lightweight RS pieces that include crank windows, stereo delete, RS thin rear glass and lightweight carpet and door panels.
Not surprisingly, it went on to win awards in several Porsche concours events. We hope to see it win many more from the track, as well. Often it takes longer to try and figure out which photos to include and which not too, so we just went ahead and attached every one for this feature since they were all excellent.
Be sure to check out the shop’s site in the link below for a short video and full parts list breakdown, where it can be found for sale. No price is given and it dates back to June of 2013 so we are not sure if it is still available.
If it’s not still for sale, somebody ended up with an epic car that was built right. And, as nice as it is, it’s not a factory original limited edition, so you don’t have to worry about tracking the daylights out of it and ruining it’s originality. Sometimes a tribute can work in your favor over a factory original, and this is just one of those cases. It is also one of those extremely rare cases where we can even accept it wearing a “Carrera RS” badge, too.
