Design Velke 1973 911 RSR Porsche Carrera

Design Velke build principle

Its design was aggressive. Its acceleration, violent. Its interior, sparse. The 1973 911 RSR/Carrera was built to dominate, and it delivered, making it the most iconic and most desirable of the 911s.

The 1973 RSR is the ideal combination of style and the Porsche Principle, “always get the most out of everything,” which has guided Porsche design consistently since the beginning. The 1973’s innovative flared wheel arches were created to accommodate wider wheels and tires. The elegant duck tail spoiler and front air dam advanced its aerodynamics. The chassis was strengthened to handle faster-cornering speeds. With a stronger, lighter body and more powerful engine, the 1973 911 set the standard of the day for high-performance cars.
