The vehicle in detail

1983, Porsche had just rolled the most reliable 911 to date off the production line with the 3.2. And then they went one step further with the Turbolook (factory turbo look): turbo-wide body and the complete turbo chassis with turbo brakes.
All together the ideal basis for this well-maintained 2.8 RSR backdate.
Unlike what is usual with conversions of this type, no changes had to be made to the body of this vehicle in order to come close to the legendary wide-body look of the F model of the time.
The side skirts and the rear spoiler were removed for this purpose. The trunk lid was replaced with a lockable long hood conversion made of plastic from FSH.

The RSR rear bumper made of fiberglass had to be meticulously adapted to the turbo-wide body in days of work, as a suitable part was not available anywhere. The front bumper in Singer style from FSH was also adapted to the wide wheel arches and mounted non-destructively to the front of the car.
The already generously sized wheel arches from the factory easily accommodate the original 16" Fuchs rims, which have been widened to 9" and 10" by Keller. The deep-dish rims are fitted with brand new Michelin Pilot Classic 245/45 and 205/55 with the contemporary block profile.
The turbo chassis with its solid aluminum rear axle control arms, stabilizers and turbo steering is already perfectly tuned at the factory. Therefore, only the rigidity was optimized by a uniball-mounted strut brace from Rennline and the handling for "street sport" use was noticeably improved by installing K&W Variant 3 dampers.
The 6-cylinder naturally aspirated engine runs cleanly, dry and is in its original delivery condition. To increase performance, the exhaust system was replaced with a double-flow Schäfer exhaust with SSI manifolds and the setup by Dennis Dragunski (Elferwelt) was perfectly tuned to a whopping 245 hp. To reliably transfer the power to the road, the 915 5-speed gearbox was professionally overhauled and mechanically upgraded by installing a WEVO gate shifter and gearbox side cover. A Drexler limited-slip differential was also installed for higher cornering speeds.
The black interior is in exceptionally good condition. The original seats were stored and replaced with a set of contemporary RECARO Ideal seats with corduroy seat centre panels. The RSR steering wheel from FSH and the jagged WEVO shifter with balsa wood gear knob are within easy reach. The feet rest on specially made GRP floorboards. The instruments are just as faithfully adapted to the F-series as the Bluetooth-compatible Retrosound radio with hands-free function.
The vehicle is largely in its original paint and was taken over by a third owner in its original, unmodified condition before the conversion. All dismantled attachments are neatly stored so that the vehicle can be rebuilt to its original condition at any time.
With its former Marlboro design, the car has already been hyped in various media, most recently in the book GET OUT by Vince Perraud.
