It was labeled by Porsche executives as "A Pure-Protien Porsche 911". The Porsche 911 RS America was designed to handle more like a competition version 911.

It had only four options, Electric Sunroof, Air Conditioning, Limited Slip Differential and CR-1 AM/FM cassette radio, and offered larger wheels and tires, a larger diameter front stabilizer bar, as well as stiffer springs and shock absorbers than the normal 911 Carrera 2. Available only with a five-speed manual transmission, The RS America entered the U.S, with a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $53,900, compared to the more richly appointed 1992 911 Carrera 2, which carries an MSRP of $63,900.

Unlike the 911 Carrera 2, The RS America sports a large fixed-plane spolier and carries special RS identification. The emphasis is on ultra-sporting handling feel and agility. It was built in limited quantities for the US market only as is slightly lighter than the 911 Carrera 2 for more agile handling.

The RS America is powered by Porsche's familiar 3.6 litre, 247 horsepower, twin-ingnition, opposed-six-cylinder engine which propels it to 60 mph in just 5.4 seconds.
