Tomica Premium No. 12 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7
This is an exquisite 1:61 diecast of the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 made by Takara Tomy. The Carrera RS models, valued by collectors, are considered by many to be the greatest classic 911s of all-time. RS stands for Rennsport in German, meaning “racing sport”.
The Carrera name was reintroduced from the 356 Carrera which had itself been named after Porsche’s victories in the Carrera Panamericana races in Mexico in the 1950s. The RS was built so that Porsche could enter racing formulae that demanded that a certain minimum number of production cars were made. Compared with a standard 911S, the Carrera 2.7 RS had a larger 2.7 L; 164.0 cu in (2,687 cc) boxer-6 engine with a bore x stroke of 90 mm × 70.4 mm (3.54 in × 2.77 in) developing 210 PS (207 hp; 154 kW) at 6,300 rpm and 255 N⋅m (188 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,100 rpm with Bosch Mechanical Fuel Injection, revised and stiffened suspension, a “ducktail” rear spoiler, larger brakes, wider rear wheels and rear wings. In RS Touring form it weighed 1,075 kg (2,370 lb), in Sport Lightweight form it was about 100 kg (220 lb) lighter, the saving coming from the thin-gauge steel used for parts of the bodyshell and also the use of thinner glass. In total, 1,580 were made, comfortably exceeding the 500 that had to be made to qualify for the vital FIA Group 4 class. 49 Carrera RSR cars were built with 2.8 L; 171.4 cu in (2,808 cc) engines producing 300 PS (296 hp; 221 kW).
