As I recall, my Morgan 4/4 Competition had a Ford engine with...I think...96 HP. But it also had a 4:56 rear axle. Rapid acceleration: guaranteed. Top speed in 4th wasn't much over 90 mph, maybe close to 100 mph. But in the 30 to 70 mph range it was a fun-giving rocket! Slow car fast. It was great!!

Here’s a little something to enjoy while thinking about what makes a proper 911 work... “let physics, and the 911, do its work!”

And some history of the RS in the video:

And some history of the RS/RSR series (with period footage):
