Porsche’s racing history is, to describe in a word, illustrious. The German automaker has produced some of the finest and most powerful race cars in the world and one of them happens to be the `70s 911 Carrera RSR.

Having participated in a number of GT-class competitions, the 911 RSR was by far one of the most storied models in the German automaker’s racing lineup, amassing three international and seven German wins in its first year of competition.

So with the 1973 RSR model celebrating its 40th anniversary, the German automaker decided to feature the car in its Porsche Museum Treasures videos.

Check out the video of the 1973 911 Carrera RSR getting introduced to a new generation of motorsports aficionados. Back then, it was one of the most feared racers in the circuit. Today, it’s one of the most iconic race cars in the Porsche Museum.

Then and now, this race car still captures the hearts of a lot of people.

The Porsche 911 Carrera RSR looks nice with the headlights and strange front orange grille. It seems very fast too. It is good that they included this beautiful car in the Porsche Museum treasure to be able to be viewed by car enthusiasts.

Carrera has inspired many other designers and projectors of cars, and not only.And by that, I’m trying to light up it’s importance and power
