12 Apr 2003 - RS America production numbers are in from Porsche®.
PLUS! a new archive has been added to the website listing ads for RS Americas sold on this website.
Today I received a response from Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) regarding my series of very specific questions regarding RS America production numbers. I am pleased to finally have a definitive answer from the manufacturers archives stating exactly how many were made.
For details see question #5 on the frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) page.
A “SOLD” archive has been added to the website on the “Marketplace/vehicles” page - enabling anyone interested to review adverts for previously advertised RS Americas that have now sold.
Why would anyone want to do this you might ask?
Well, if you wanted to get an idea of the general asking price for RS Americas, or heaven forbid, you needed to prove the market value of your car to your insurance company during a claim settlement, this archive has proven to be a pretty useful tool - see below:
“It had been raining, but the roads were visually dry. I was taking a turn I have taken 1000 times, within a mile of my house, and lost the rear, right at the apex..... I used www.RSAmerica.net to get full price for my RSA from the insurance company. They tried to come in with a low settlement offer of $34,000. Thank you again for such a great site.”
Many thanks to Jeff H of OK for sending the picture above of five RSAs at Texas World Speedway for the Club Race. If you have any RSA pictures you would like posted - please send them in (along with your permission for me to post them) and I'll be happy to put them on the website.
Rumor has it that there was another RS America at the above pictured event, a Guards Red car with blue wheels owned by Scott 8J of OK but unfortunately Scott didn't make it into the photo.
A heads up for Hershey!! Coming this month to Hershey PA is the annual Porsche® fest gathering. If you are planning on attending and would like me to mail you a few RS America Registry business cards, please e-mail me and let me know. Please keep an eye out for RSAs at the meet and maybe put a business card in the window seal on the drivers door near the door handle so the driver can't miss it! Remember ..... SPREAD THE WORD about the registry!
Do you know how to tell when an RS America passed final quality inspection buy-off and left the production line?
CLUE: The day the quality buy-off happens is referred to in Stuttgart as the “M-date”.
