Porsche 101: Carrera, RS, Leichtbau & More Lingo to Know

Launch Slideshow

The 964 generation of Porsches, produced from 1989–1994, was a notoriously nuanced series of cars, with a number of important options, engines and body configurations available. This March at Amelia Island, RM Sotheby’s is poised the offer “Exclusively Porsche – The 964 Collection,” a group of twelve cars that could be the most complete collection of 964 specials in the world. With cars ranging from the RSA to the X83, many of which are in the eye-catching "speed yellow," this auction is the perfect opportunity to brush up on key Porsche terminology. Click ahead to preview the collection and learn the difference between a Flachbau, a Leichtbau and more. –Jake Auerbach
