1973 Porsche 911 T RS Prototype replica fitted with a 2.4 engine built to 2.7 RS 210bhp RS spec. Finished in beautiful Gulf Blue with black interior. The odometer is showing 67521km and the car was sold new in Sweden in 1976. Chassis number 9113501841. Includes original service book at tools.
This rather special Porsche build is one only the most ardent fan of the marque would correctly recognise not as a replica of an RS but in fact a replica of an RS prototype.
Around twenty years ago this little non-sunroof 73’ T received a complete renovation and rebuild to RS spec (a photo of which can be found with in a FIA Historica Regularity Run Car Pass from 2007 that is included with the sale). Twenty years later it has gone through a similar process again at the hands of a known Porsche specialist, though with a nice twist on the RS spec the iconic ‘ducktail’ spoiler was put aside to put the car in line with the look of the 4 prototype cars that later become the legendary Carrera RS.
The car sports new doors, new original metal RS rear bumper and a new front hood. Also included in the sale is a painted RS front bumper and ducktail spoiler to turn it back to an ‘RS’ spec replica.
The original 2.4 engine has been rebuilt by renowned Porsche builder in Sweden to RS spec and included a new RS 2.7 cylinder set, a rebuilt injection pump and distributor. The 915 gearbox has also been rebuilt during this overhaul. Braking comes courtesy of 911 S calipers, connected to the road via a set of new restored 8 x15 Fuchs and new tyres all round.
Inside the occupants are nestled comfortable in a set of original Recaro sports seats, with the driver making inputs through a black 380mm RS steerting wheel. New RS carpets in grey tones finish off the interior, and in the front trunk sits and RS plastic tank, Fuchs space saver wheel, compressor and tool jack.
A superb, true to original recreation of the car responsible for a true legend in the Porsche world. Finished to a high standard by a renowned builder, powered by a peach of an engine that has again come from a well known figure in the Swedish Porsche scene.
