THIS IS THE AFFORDABLE AND STREET LEGAL HEAD TURNER!!!
1971 PORSCHE 911T / CARRERA RSR TRIBUTE / GULF LIVERY
The Porsche 911 Carrera RSR is one of the most iconic classic racing vehicles from the 1970’s era. The 24 Hours of Le Mans comes to mind when tracing back the roots of the famous RSR. They were a factory purpose built racing car based off of the 911 chassis and made to contend and go on to rule the GT category across the globe. Many famous racing drivers such as Jurgen Barth, Hurley Haywood, Peter Gregg, to name a few, campaigned these vehicles obtaining multiple podiums and championships.
It’s unique styling of the RSR Carrera and appeal toPorsche enthusiasts with its heritage have led the modern generation to create fantastic tribute versions of the originals. A real RSR Carrera fetches a very hefty price and tag on the fact that there are very few original’s around. The next best thing? Tribute builds.
This RSR tribute build started life as a 1971 Porsche911T. It has the original 2.2L flat six air-cooled motor paired with the original 4 speed manual transmission, both matching numbers to the chassis. A certificate of authenticity from Porsche verifies this further. This tribute build was purpose built as a road worthy vehicle, cars and coffee attendee, and weekend track fun.
