Lot 11: Porsche 911T RSR Recreation

Classics Cars, Charterhouse (15 July 2012)

The 1973 RSR is the wide body full fat race version of the iconic RS and holds a special place in Porsche history as it was the first homologation of a production car. This RSR recreation has been based on a 1969 911T, which was first registered in September of that year and its original colour was red. A comprehensive restoration and recreation has been carried out, with the body stripped of paint and RSR wide metal wheel arches, bumpers and whale tail incorporated into the body. The body was then fully repainted in white and new RSR decals were applied. The 2.4 litre engine was rebuilt with new pistons and rings, decoked heads, lapped valves, lightweight racing flywheel, triple racing clutch plate and twin triple 38 mm carburettors. The running gear incorporated new Bilstein shock absorbers, uprated front brakes with S type calipers and discs, 915 gearbox with quick shift, and the repositioning of the oil cooler to the front fender (a modification which ensures much cooler engine running). The interior has been stripped of all equipment and superfluous weight and incorporates a fully FIA compliant welded-in roll cage, Cobra bucket seats, four point race harnesses, lightweight door cards with leather door pulls, passenger fire extinguisher and lightweight carpets. The history file contains photographs and a CD of the restoration in progress, receipts and general information. The subject of many hours of restoration, this RSR recreation would make a brilliant track day or hill climb car, but unlike a lot of recreations, because of its original 1969 build date, it would make an excellent starting point for an historic FIA group 4 racing car. With most of the performance, all of the looks, and a fraction of the price of a real Porsche RSR, the next owner is offered a lot of bang for their buck. Due to lack of use in the last two years, OPV 192 will require light recommissioning before use. V5C, no current MOT, tax exempt (no current tax) See illustrations ***Note: The carburettors are detached but present, suspected engine fault.
