Motorsports Monday: 1972 Porsche 911 RSR Tribute

This past weekend was the Goodwood Festival of Speed; if you missed it once again, or have no idea what I’m talking about but are reading this, it’s something you desperately need to examine in your motoring life. There are historic races held around the world, and there are motoring events held around the world, so one more held on some rich dude’s driveway shouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong, it’s perhaps the single most unique and impressive automotive event in the world. The FoS reunites classic race cars often with their original drivers, driven in anger up the 1 mile hill of Lord March’s drive. It’s tougher than it would seem to be, and since it’s inception it’s attracted every major automobile manufacturer and gathered some of the most impressive machines ever made. From the first race cars to modern Formula One racers, the Festival of Speed is a celebration of all things automotive. For example, this past weekend, Mazda was the featured marque – but they also had gathered 7 of the 8 Mercedes-Benz 300SLRs ever built, and had Sir Stirling Moss, Hans Herrmann, Jochen Mass, Sir Jackie Stewart, and many other notable champions driving four of them up the hill. That was one of many priceless convoys parading by motorsports enthusiasts; it’s simply the largest collection of the most significant race cars ever made in the world coupled with the historic champions that drove them. Why talk about this in this tribute listing? Well, look closely at the lower portion of the door, and you’ll see that the builder of this 1972 Porsche 911 – which tribute’s Hurley Haywood’s Brumos-sponsored 1973 Sebring RSR – went so far as to include the Goodwood FoS number sticker from when the car appeared:

The attention to detail on this example is very impressive; the flares, wheels, ducktail spoiler and livery appear near identical to the original 1973 car. Brumos cars are usually noted for their white base color with blue and red stripes, but in 1973 Haywood drove this yellow example to victory in the 12 Hours of Sebring with Peter Gregg and Dr. Dave Helmick. The real #59 1973 car was restored in 2001 and featured along with many other 911s at Goodwood in 2013 – in order to maintain the authentic look, I love the inclusion of the FoS sticker on this replica. RSRs are a popular car to copy, and outside of a few stickers this car appears faithfully recreated. Underneath the drivetrain is updated with a 3.2 in place of the high-compression 2.8, along with 964-spec brakes. But the look is classic RSR, and that’s a good thing. A real 1974 RSR – slightly more wild than the ’73 – sold recently for 1.1 million dollars, making them all but unaffordable for even well-heeled enthusiasts. The $129,000 asking price is pretty strong for a replica, but considering that price would be a very basic and not nice 1972 911S in today’s market, it’s perhaps not an unreasonable price for what appears to be a cleanly built tribute of a very significant 911.
