Classic Porsche Throwdown: 993 RS and 964 RS take off their gloves

What do you get when you have two iconic Porsche sports cars, miles of empty road ahead of you, a camera crew, and soundtrack music courtesy of Moby?

We’ll spare you the answer: you get a pretty awesome three-and-a-half minute video, that’s what!

Arguably two of the most famous Porsche 911 models in history - the 993 RS and the 964 RS - are the subjects in this video, and by asking us, we’ll tell you that they play the roles of protagonists very, very well.

It’s a scenic video comprising the two classic 911s blazing their rubber on a vast expanse of open land with a cargo plane serving as a noteworthy extra. There’s plenty to like about this video, including the soundtrack music courtesy of Moby that provides the feeling of buoyant serenity while watching the two Porsches in their natural habitat.

As a reminder to those that have forgotten, the 993 RS was a lightweight version of the 993 Carrera - 100 kg lighter, in fact - and was the first Porsche to ever use a 3.8-liter engine that produced 300 horsepower. On the flip side, the 964 RS was notable, not just because it was a lightweight rear-wheel-drive 911, but because it was sold in the US on a limited basis only. It came with a six-cylinder engine that had an output of 260 horsepower and 230 lb/ft of torque.

WOW! I think this is one of the best design of Porsche. BTW 993 RS is a lightweight version of 993 Carrera.

These cars are both impressive since it came from Porsche, and it is a great idea that they compete with each other, there will be no loser and winner. However, they can still make some upgrades on both cars for it to become more promising.

Err, where did they get this one? That was pretty vintage! I love the design and it was really one of the best looks of Porsche through this years.

That was really impressive. I would also love to see vintage cars on the road. Well, let’s preserve its original beauty. We all know that many of us love seeing such kind of reinvention.

Well, looking at the vintage car of Porsche, I mistakenly see it as a modern car for its platform is not that classic. However, I would like to see a more power car!

hmm. It seems that there are a lot of classic Porsche model is coming out lately. Are they planning to make a remake version of these cars? Hey! I don’t want to see those motorized antennas!lol

I am not really surprised that Porsche would actually try this one. I actually that this is a pretty good idea, since you will get to see both cars in action and decide which one is better.

@mariamargarita, hahaha! I really like that one. But yeah, you’re right here. These two are really some of the best Porsche models that I have seen, it’s really hard to pick between them.

Lemme guess, the one who will win on this one would be the Porsche, hahaha! Just kidding. But I would say that it is really exciting to see two of the best Porsche models going up against each other.

Watching a video of these two iconic cars from Porsche brings back good old times. Those times where cars like these are on a hot road but now its an icon in car industry.

Ha, that’s definitely one great way to show off the Porsche’s prowess. And there is really no need to choose between these two, since they are both really great cars.

Wow! The combination of the music and the video is incredibly perfect! I like nostalgic feel watching the it and I would say those vintage cars looks great I wonder if Porsche will make a production car that takes an inspiration on these cars.

I think Porsche has been coming out of too many vintage cars nowadays. Well, I really love the fact on how they give importance on their heritage. The nostalgic music and atmosphere of the video makes me to appreciate it more!
