The Porsche Museum has put up a special exhibition for visitors to its German site, titled Spirit of Carrera RS, which aims to celebrate the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7. The museum tells the story of the RS and its racing cousin, the RSR, not only through the cars and anecdotes, but also with films, photos, racing posters and interactive features.

At the centre of the special exhibition is a bright yellow 911 Carrera RS 2.7 in Touring spec, as well as a rare metallic green prototype.

The exhibition will feature some of the greatest and most priceless RS models from Porsche's storied history
The cars, development documents, advertising brochures, price lists, the Carrera logo and an article from the Porsche magazine Christophorus describe the path from the development vehicle to the production-ready Porsche.

The car's 'ducktail' moniker, which came from the world of avian anatomy, inspired the shape of the rear spoiler. At high speeds, it presses the 911 to the ground and thereby reduces lift to achieve the ideal balance and enable higher top speeds.

Visitors can also look forward to seeing other extraordinary cars from the family lineage of the ducktail, spanning five decades of Porsche history.
