Developed for the 1973 season the 911 Carrera RSR 2.8 already tackles the Corsica Rallye in late 1972 and temporarily serves as an experimental car. In February 1973 it scores a victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona. After that, it competes in the prototype class featuring a three-litre engine and modified suspension. The versatile RSR clinches third place at the Targa Florio in May. In June it contests the GT category at Le Mans, again powered by a 2.8-litre engine. After more testing, the car is re-painted in the Targa Florio livery and rolls into the Museum.
