Influenced by a racing legend, the RW RSK follows in the footsteps of a great ride.
Porsche 718 RSK
The RS Series followed the world class winning 550. In 1957, the factory decided that the 550 Spyder had reached 100% of its potential now sporting a space frame and a power output of 135 horsepower. The new car was called the RSK. RS for Rennsport and K for the shape of the front suspension. The type 718 was born.
The RW RSK by Rock West Racing uses similar styling, but incorporates modifications to the original race car body that allows this RSK to be used on the street. This is not a replica car like you’ve seen before.
- We utilize our 550 Spyder frame with slight modification with only one cross member moved forward slightly to allow the panel from dash to floor to cover it as it does in the 550 Spyder.
- After we make the frame, it is powder coated and then our hand-laid fiberglass body is bonded to the frame with adhesive and fasteners.
- The hood, engine cover, and doors are hand-fitted with new and custom-made hardware.
This is a cool car and we are building all new tooling to ensure quality. Order in our Store today!
