The Porsche 911 Carrera RS Is the Forbidden 993

  • Published: 30 January 2019

    The Porsche 911 Carrera RS is the forbidden 993. It's the lightweight, race-focused 993 that was never sold in North America -- and yet, today I'm reviewing the 993 Carrera RS here in the United States, and I'm going to show you the ins and outs of the Carrera RS.

    As it turns out, the weird light is a breakdown light to warn other road users you're broken down. Apparently the official color of such warning lights in Japan is purple. I don't know why that is, why it's better than a road triangle, or where/how exactly you display it, but that solves the mystery!

      Surprised you didn't mention the bodykit and the wing is near identical to the 993 GT2.

      Can confirm this is a JDM-Spec warning device for roadside vehicles. It's a very popular accessory for Bosozokus and Kyusha-style vehicles as well. It's much different from what we're use to here in the States, nonetheless interesting. That immediately stood out to me when you mentioned the car was a Japanese import.

      @Quintinohthree you aren't serious are you? Can a person really be that stupid? Yea you if it in to the cigarette lighter plug then walk down the road and set it on the ground smh. C'mon all you have to do is use just a small amount of your brain and you should realize that it has a magnet on it and you place it on your vehicle. You are the kind of idiot that would end up placing it on the ground and getting hit by a car then Porsche would have to put the label on the case that said "place on vehicle, NOT on the road"

                              6:58 that tradition actually started with the 964 Carrera RS 3.8 which in itself was started to emulate the giant rear wing on the 934 turbo RSR race car

                                  Those wheels were actually optional for any 993. Find an options list, they're on it. Unfortunately, very few people got them.

                                    At first glance I thought it was a Yellowbird, but then I saw that the colour was a bit pale in comparison to the Yellowbird, the wing was different and it was similar to CTR 2 than the Yellowbird and then I read the caption 😂😂😂

                                                The breakdown light was so obvious its cringe worthy hearing about police lights nonsense. Could've done better there Doug.

                                                  The bubble light is a breakdown light. If you breakdown you plug it in. Think “modern road flare”.

                                                            You should have a look around and see what one of those can do for performance when the purchaser checked off everything on the list for power and speed options! It could turn out as much HP as the 996 but in a much smaller car!
