1965 Porsche 911 R Tribute
The very first Porsche 911 was marketed as a luxury sports car and this very famous and distinctive design was introduced in autumn 1963. The shape basically stayed the same until 1989 when it was succeeded by the 964. The 964 was still sold as a 911, as are all current models.
The 911 was a rear engine and air-cooled car. The 911 was modified both by private teams and the factory itself for racing, rallying and other types of automotive competition. The 911 is being hailed as the most successful competition car ever, especially when its variations are included, like the very powerful 911-derived 935. This car won 24 Hours of Le Mans and other major sports cars races outright against prototypes. The 911 SC’s were the first “basic” 911’s produced and was made between 1978 and 1983.Engine capacity was 3.0 L and the power output ranged from 180 to 204 horsepower.
This specific car was subject to a nut and bolt restoration with no expense spared and the result is simply stunning! It started its life as a 1966 912 SWB with the engine sourced from a 1974 2.7L Carrera Coupe. The aim of this build was to create a super light and fast “Magnus Walker” look alike 911. With most work done by a well know South African restorer the result is spectacular: A beautiful, sleek and low, light and fast Porsche 911, all the characteristics you expect a 911 to have! In addition, the car sounds great and drives like a dream.
All invoices for the work done on the car available from the purchase of the donor car to the very last cosmetic detail. A great opportunity to purchase a truly special and unique 911.
