When it comes to sports cars that have remained true to their heritage, there’s no other name more noteworthy than the Porsche 911.

After being in production for upwards of 50 years, the 911 continues to be the sports car benchmark of which all other manufacturers aim to trump. This particular unit, the stunning Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7, is the epitome of what the 911 represents.

Delivering an impressive 210 HP when new, which is more than both the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ, the Carrera RS 2.7 featured revised, stiffened, and more aggressive suspension and debuted with a revolutionary ducktail spoiler which remains one of the Porsche’s most iconic components fitted to any of their cars ever.

The following photo helps to capture the true beauty of the Carrera RS from ’73 with this stunning green example arguably being one of the very best examples produced by the German brand.

Taken by Alexis Goure, the stunning lighting of this photo combined with the incredible reflection helps to cement it as one of our very favorite photos of the RS we’ve seen to date.

Hat tip to Goure for allowing us to use the photo, and be sure to check out their website here.

That photographer just caught perfect angle. I like how it’s shown on the water.

The concept of capturing the image of this is just great. I’ve already downloaded it and set as a desktop background.

There’re a lot of ways to have better images with a certain subject. You can have this one as an example.

It’s shows good projection of the Carrera and the best way to see it is on its reflection on water.

Of course, the reflection doubles the alluring effect of the Porsche Carrera 911.

The color of this car is like an green apple. It’s cool and also refreshing.

It’s the first Porsche to wear Ducktail spoiler in 1973 that helps it to maintain its handling even on its top speed of 153MPH.

It’s admirable. The picture is just awesome in some ways it looks cooler when it reflects itself on that part of water.

Cool pic you got there. If I were to design its future look, I’ll make it more updated when it comes to performance and output. With that design, it’ll be more surprising.
