The Blood Orange 911 Carrera RS 2.7 shines bright like the sun as the gate to André Lotterer’s estate opens.
There are moments in time that define a brand, and for Porsche, that milestone came we the creation of the iconic 911. Throughout its evolution, the 911 has and continues to take on diverse iterations that focus on perfectly blending design, performance, and technology. One of the most celebrated vacations of the German sports car is the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7, a lightweight chassis originally debuted in Paris during the International Auto Show 50 years ago. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 911 Carrera RS 2.7, Porsche is pleased to return to the south of France to meet a very special RS 2.7 example and its owner.
Glistening in the sunshine is Porsche works driver André Lotterer’s magnificent 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7. While its head-turning Blood Orange finish proves to be a rare feature, the most special characteristic of this build is that it holds the production number 0027 of 1580 made. Now 50 years old with modern technology ahead of it, the classic 911 continues to offer an exciting driving experience as André states “Driving a classic 911 is like a journey through time,”. Holding the keys to a piece of Porsche history, André researched to find that his Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 rolled off the production line on October 27th, 1972. Since its 9-year full-restoration, André Lotterer now enjoys driving his pride and joy through the region’s backroads with its famous duck lip in the rearview mirror.
