1974 Porsche 911S – Lightweight Outlaw

We’ve featured a few cars of similar intent to the one we see here and they are always difficult to gauge, but one of the persistent criticisms of those cars, especially considering the asking price many sellers seek, is that most of them have retained their stock drivetrain. Given the 911 market, there are cogent reasons for those build decisions as cosmetic details can be reverted to their stock configuration, whereas a car without its engine will never be wholly original again. One solution is to use a 911 with a relatively unloved drivetrain and replace it with something more desirable. This build followed that route utilizing a 1974 911S as its foundation and replacing its 2.7 liter flat-six with the 3.6 liter engine from a 993. Transmission, braking, and suspension received similar upgrades and the interior has been stripped and rebuilt with only the essentials leaving a spartan environment that appears bare but well sorted. With a reported 2550 lb weight this is sure to be screamer and for the well-heeled might make for a very interesting track car.

Like with most of these builds value is very much in the eye of the beholder. The asking price is very high, but at least in this case we can surmise that the replication of such a build would likely exceed the price being asked. It goes without saying that a car like this is not for everybody, in fact it probably will have little appeal to the vast majority of 911 owners. But for those immersed in 911-Outlaw culture, or who simply desire a 911 that is outside the norm, these sorts of builds at the very least provide an alternative, even if they do come at a very steep price.

  1. For that kind of wedge I can have one built to my own vision, not somebody else’s. Nice, though.

  2. 139k buys a lot of 993 parts
    Jus saying
