It shouldn't be a surprise that the Porsche 911 RS 2.7 is so highly coveted amongst collectors and enthusiasts. For many, it's one of the definitive 911s and its race-winning performance amplified its already legendary status. Later this month, RM Sotheby's will be auctioning off one very special RS 2.7, a pre-production prototype, of which nine were produced. 

This specific model was the second of nine prototypes and wears a beautiful Signal Gold exterior and is missing the signature ducktail spoiler of the production model. It also features slightly wider rear wheel fenders, an 85L gas tank, and chrome trim around the turn signals, a detail that was eventually changed to black.
