It must be Porsche week here at the Fuelfed garage. Local member Scott M. sent in this incredible driving tool knowing track junkies lurk these posts. Anyone who has a clue what it takes to build a real track car, let alone one from a minty & very collectable long nose 911, knows this a screaming deal. We’d love to see this on TFD13.1 or at Coffee & Classics in two weeks.

We’ll let Scott tell the story.

.991-rsr.

I bought this car in 2007 as a nearly-completed project with freshly rebuilt motor and transmission. The former owner claimed to have over $70K invested, and I have invested another $30K making it ‘right.’ I have driven it under 4K miles, including 10 track days, and invested a lot of time and money debugging and perfecting the setup. All mechanical systems are still fresh. Original paint quality and panel fit was only OK, and now has quite a few rock chips. Rear bumper is slightly warped and cracked but still presentable and serviceable. At about 2200 pounds and with 330+ horsepower, the best-shifting 915 transmission I’ve experienced, and great suspension and brakes, this car is an absolute joy to drive and makes the most wonderful noises imaginable.
