Let’s say for a moment that you came into an extraordinary amount of money and wanted to go vintage automobile racing. Of course, to prove your worth as an enthusiast, you’ll want to buy a historically significant car that will impress all the long bottom jaws, and few raise more eyebrows in the German realm right now than the 911. Truth told, the 911 is really the ‘new money’ of the vintage world – go try racing antique Bugattis or Ferraris, for example, and you’ll soon laugh at the budgets of Porsche racers…but I digress.
Even if you do have 911 money, buying a real factory race car is far from cheap. Real RSRs sell in the millions, and if you really want to race one competitively you’ll need to have that much in your slush fund. Smarter, than, is to buy one of these cars that’s been made to look like a more famous model. In this case, someone took what’s claimed to be a ’75 Carrera and made it into a tribute of the ’74 RSRs run by the likes of Brumos.
