Porsche Paul Stephens Lightweight 300R Prototype

Coupé, 2005


  • Midnight Blue Metallic Colour
  • Sports Seats
  • 3 Spoke PS Sports Steering Wheel

In 2002 Paul Stephens started to formulate his vision of PS Autoart, a collection of retro style 911s with more modern features and performance. By 2005 there were three different prototypes completed for the launch at Brands Hatch, a Retro Targa, a 240C and this car, the Lightweight 300R. The 300R was based on the 964 Carrera 2 and features retro 73 RS styling, a 3.8 litre engine, RS brakes and shock absorbers, a lightweight interior, lightweight panels and rear screen. It weighed 1220KGs, which is the same as a 964 Carrera RS. With the same 3.8 litres as 993RS, the braking of a 964 RS and retro styling inspired by the 73 RS, the 300R was an individual and quick road car that gained favourable press reviews in Top Gear, Car and the Porsche press at the time. We sold this actual prototype to its last owner in 2006 with just over 3,000 miles completed and except for the odd run out, it has remained in storage ever since.
