Transmission Manual
Year 1992
In 1992, Porsche produced a lightweight, rear-wheel-drive only version of the 964 called the Carrera RS. It was fitted with a revised version of the standard engine titled M64/03 and had increased power output of 256hp along with a lightweight flywheel coupled to the G50/10 gearbox with closer ratios, asymmetrical Limited Slip Differential and steel synchromesh. A stripped-out interior devoid of luxuries such as electric windows, rear seats, air conditioning, and cruise control were part of the RS package, as were the bucket front seats. The hood was made of aluminium, the chassis was seam welded, and sound deadening was deleted. Furthermore, the glass was thinner in the doors and rear window. The Carrera RS is approximately 155 kg lighter than the standard model. The NGTs were further stripped-out with all carpets and soundproofing removed. Front carpets were replaced with plywood footboards, a full welded cage was fitted, and seats were Nomex-covered rather than leather. Additionally, the NGTs featured a long-range fuel tank, plumbed in fire extinguisher, external cut-off, fire extinguisher release, and a relocated DME. Harder and more track focused, these were great racers and are still running in events like the Nürburgring 24Hrs. A total of just 290 were made. Our NGT was purchased directly from the Porsche Development Centre in Weissach by well-known South African businessman, racing driver and motoring enthusiast, Bruce Joelson. Bruce had a friend at Porsche by the name of Gert Schmidt who was employed in the racing department. Rubystone Red which is actually a dark pink was chosen for what can only be described as a “provocative or vivacious” kind of sports car. A hard core focused machine aimed at the enthusiast or advanced driver. Although the NGT was already radical and developed for performance, like many South African petrolheads, Bruce wanted a little more! So he had the factory upgrade certain items such as the fitment of carbon-kevlar doors and fenders. Ironically, he left the aluminium bonnet as the weight saving was marginal. The front suspension and brakes were upgraded to accommodate the 18 inch Speedline wheels. Period and N/GT-correct Schroth racing harnesses were imported and fitted to the vehicle to complete the RS N/GT interior. A Tech-Art front splitter and rear wing was also fitted at the factory. On arrival in South Africa, the engine was removed and upgraded to 3.8 RSR spec. The car did a bit of racing in Porsche events and was also campaigned by SA Saloon Champion, Peter Gough. To the best of our knowledge, the car remained on the tarmac and was highly competitive. At some point, it was decided that the car was too valuable to risk the exposure of competitive racing and has been in the hands of collectors since, namely Andre Bezuidenhout and Wayne Plit. With just 27K odd kilometres on the clock, this highly specced NGT must be one of the best in existence.
