The most noticeable difference to the production version is the lack of a characteristic rear spoiler.
Namely, the bodywork of the first four prototypes of the future Carrera RS were made on the basis of the then-Porsche 911 S. Subsequently, certain modifications were made, before the serial production of the car was launched.

Pre-production vehicles also had a different capacity of 85 liters, chrome-plated decorative elements around the turn signal, while the interior of the space where the engine was placed was painted in black.
This specimen, except for pre-production tests, was also used to show auto-journalists. When the serial production of the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 was completed, Porsche gave the prototype to the racing driver Helmuth Koinigg.
