1984 / 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Recreation

Vehicle Description

Restored / Backdated 1984 911 Carrera Coupe. A/C and Radio delete. Power sunroof and windows. Original matching numbers drive train with matching engine, transmission, and VIN. This is a California Smog Legal vehicle with its California registration. This car is a personal build that was inspired by one of the all time greats – 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Touring version. The car is Not intended to be an exact replica of the Carrera RS Touring, but the build was inspired by its ever lasting qualities of agility, lightness, balance, power, mechanical integrity, form following function, and classic Porsche design. Not for the purist, but will certainly be appreciated by those who enjoy the clean design and style of the long-hood cars, but prefer the advantages that the 3.2 liter Carreras provide with more modern mechanics, higher performance, and galvanized rust resistant body. The car was completed and has been maintained to very high standards with excellent fit and finish throughout. Many period correct details were thoughtfully applied during the build process.
