Description

Just three hundred and forty 911 Club Sports were built worldwide, this being one of only 53 RHD examples. Produced for the 1988 Model Year when Porsche decided to re-visit the stripped down, lightweight RS theme that had proved so rewarding in 1973.

Based on a standard 3.2 Carrera, the Club Sport version was built for club racing, but was also a rather special road car.

The CS had a blueprinted engine with a higher rev limit and had extensive deletion of many comfort options such as sunroof, air conditioning, radio, sound insulation, rear wiper, door pocket lids, fog lamps, front hood locking mechanism, engine and luggage compartment lights, lockable wheel nuts and the rear lid logo. The rear seats were replaced by a carpeted shelf with two storage cubby holes, and the front seats were replaced by simpler versions without any electric adjustment and covered in pin striped cloth. In the true lightweight version, even the underseal was omitted !

The engine was only mildly modified and nominally rated at 231 bhp. Mechanical blueprinting, along with a modified ECU allowing the engine to rev to 6840 rpm, which made for a more urgent and responsive power plant than that in the standard 3,2 Carrera. This, combined with uprated dampers and stiffer engine mountings, gave a completely different feel to the driving experience - it was, and is, a true driver's car.
