This head-turning 911 is the perfect tool for serious touring or track days. Starting with a stripped 1974 “G-series” 911 Targa shell, the builder fabricated a fully integrated and gusseted 10-point roll cage. Then a complete roof clip was welded on, transforming an open Targa into a handsome competition coupe. All of the metalwork was done by the previous owner. The finish coachwork, paint, mechanical upgrades, and details were completed by Regal Roadsters, and Accumoto Motorsport in Wisconsin. An additional front strut brace, adjustable front camber boxes, and lightweight RSR-style fascias were fitted.
Powered by a 993 Carrera 3.6-liter engine that has been “chipped” for greater output, this striking Arrow Blue 911 is fitted with a custom-made carbon-fiber intake and custom exhaust. Although the engine has not been dyno-tested, the consignor estimates it to make 340 hp, based on similar power figures from like engine configurations. This engine feeds through a lightweight Sachs clutch to a G50 transaxle with close-ratio gears, and a limited-slip differential to propel this slender 2,550-lb. beauty, providing an ultra-quick revving and visceral experience.
The suspension has been upgraded with modified front spindles, Bilstein shocks, larger torsion bars and anti-roll bars, polygraphite bushings, Turbo tie-rod ends, and Rennline trailing arms, monoball joints, and steering rack spacers. Brakes are “Big Reds” with drilled rotors, and the 16-in. wheels are Fuchs-style alloys, 8-in. wide in front, 10-in. in back, shod with 45-series rubber.
Inside are a pair of sport seats, Rennline drilled floorboards and racing pedals, a Momo steering wheel, Wevo shifter, and a pair of analog Han Hart stop-watches. This fascinating project was purchased in an incomplete state in 2014 and finished by an air-cooled specialist in 2015. It was briefly tested at Road America, showing it to be very fast. A gearing chart indicates a potential top speed of almost 150 mph. This ‘outlaw’ 911 received an engine-out service with a new clutch in early 2018. It is supplied with a build sheet and a large file of detailed invoices.
The enthusiast looking for an exciting track-ready 911 should give this outlaw Porsche serious consideration.
