Porsche 911 Backdate

Porsche 911 Backdate

Targa, 1977


  • Completely reimagined 911
  • Total nut and bolt rebuild
  • Exceptional build quality

A reimagined 911 of the highest quality.

It feels brand new, having received a total nut and bolt rebuild by one of the best in the business. This is very far away from an ordinary or a normal restoration. Think more like the feel of a new machine.

This 911 has been rebuilt from tip to toe with the appearance of a 1972 911 S. However, under the skin lies up to date technology, refinements and improvements.

The vehicle in detail

This is a 911 to enjoy your motoring, providing a unique experience for the owner.

It has been built with exquisite attention to detail. Only the expert would query if it were indeed an original from 1972……..until that is, the expert got behind the wheel or viewed under the engine lid.

It is what you cannot immediately see that makes it so special. The body structure, dipped and coated, then strengthened and refinished, makes this Targa significantly taughter than any original. The engine, a 3.0, has been totally rebuilt and now comes equipped with individual throttle bodies, fuel injection and coil packs. All managed by a modern programmable ECU. SSI heat exchangers, sports exhaust plus a lightweight flywheel and sports clutch. All these changes add significantly to the power output, now estimated at around 230 bhp.

Suspension, brakes and fuel systems have been renewed or rebuilt. 15” Fuchs alloys. Bilstein sports shock absorbers with turbo-spec anti roll bars provide ride and handling that’s better than any previous F or G model Targa.

The interior is beautiful, finished in the finest black German leather with houndstooth details. The Recaro seats are heated and there are new door and dash speakers for the Blaupunkt ‘Frankfurt’ radio.

The Targa roof, completely refurbished and finished in black mohair, unlatches with just 2 clips and folds neatly in its own storage bag.

We could spend hours pointing out the craftsmanship, the quality and the detail, and should you like that, please call and we can arrange an appointment, either in person or via WhatsApp.

Comes with 2 keys, a large history folder, original book pack etc plus a bespoke hard-back book documenting the build process.

Whilst a Singer provides a massive statement, this 911 is less aggressive and, therefore, much more subtle…..although you will receive positive comments wherever you go.

Worldwide export available.
