Interesting question - because both cars have been modified over time. The Sport Fahrer 3.8RS book notes the RSR engine upgrade on the 497075 (red) car, and some changes in the seat back colors on the 497092 black car - as well as noting it's changed hands more than a few times.

If you were planning to drive your approx. $1.3M+ 3.8RS on track, that RSR engine might be appealing. IMHO.

Sorry too rich for my fun. That is what clones are for. Although when I am done with mine it will leave these trying to play catchup. I would want an RS for street driving but these are all going to collections or wealthy historic racers. I would prefer to have a stock one. I'll let you know when I win the lottery LOL.

Agreed. And frankly a 3.6RS is pretty damned similar (other than the narrow body) to a 3.8RS, for a million less.
Obviously a 3.6 RS is much more affordable for driving around.
There are over 1700 3.6 RSes out there, and only maybe 50 3.8 RS.

How much does a clone build save over a decent 3.6RS?

All depends on how far you want to take it. A true clone would be quite pricey. You can make a close cosmetic 3.8 RS clone with a nice engine build more power and more modern suspension for $150k-$200k and have one heck of a ride.

It was merely an observation and not a diss on the car. Too bad BJ did not try harder to highlight such an awesome car, but I guess they did not have too judging from the selling price.

I am of course biased for "late generation black 964 cabriolet with cup wheels"

Here's a nice one for sale, owner is very knowledgeable and a true enthusiast: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...a-cabriolet-3/

Looks like a decent car. Sunroof delete, has some track and RS upgrades and pole position seats.
