1973 Porsche 911T – RSR build

I’ll just get this out of the way: properly speaking this 911 isn’t really a RSR build, meaning it hasn’t tried to replicate the mechanicals of those very special cars. What this build has done is take a 911T and completely alter its personality in a way that the RSR did during its time. The description provides a basic overview of the work, but the biggest item, and what I think differentiates this from a lot of the builds we see, is that this 911T now houses a 3.6 liter flat-six from the 964. This quickly distinguishes it from the 3.2 Carrera based builds that are much more common. The pictures aren’t the best for appreciating the metallic grey paint, but the appearance looks quite promising. That this car currently resides in Japan will make things difficult for a lot of buyers, but for those willing to put in the effort this 911 could be a pretty great.

While I love the exterior look of this 911, the interior is kind of a let down. At least from the little we see. The interior of a car like this doesn’t need to be special; we aren’t necessarily looking for bespoke applications like we see with Singer. But the seats look terrible and that by itself is really throwing things off. Thankfully that’s not a terribly difficult fix and it is the body and drivetrain that are most important. About that: this states that it has the 915 5-speed transmission, which would seem odd when mated to a 964 engine. Perhaps something is getting lost in translation from Japanese to English so it’s worth investigating. Ultimately it will be those investigations that will be the most difficult, at least unless someone just wants to take a risk based on what they see here. Bidding is quite reasonable at the moment: $46,100. I suspect the reserve will lie well above that given the typical asking prices we see for builds with the 3.2 Carrera engine. But how high I’m not really sure. This is a great looking 911 with a lot of potential, but it’s going to take some time.

  1. Too bad importing a car with a non original engine into the US is a big no no.

  2. “coil springs”…? WTF??

  3. Pretty common to use a 915 gearbox with a 964 3.6 if you working with a pre 87 911. Swapping in a G50 is a pretty big job. Too bad all the pictures have been photoshopped, its hard to get a good sense of the car.
