1971 Porsche 911T Coupe – RS Tribute

There are some cars I come across that are so visually arresting that I start thinking about featuring them before even delving much beyond the basic details of the car. I would say this is one such car. The color. The execution of the design. Everything about the overall aesthetic at work here is remarkably beautiful, but also properly conveys the sporting pretensions lying behind the car’s genesis. As one of the most highly regarded 911s of all time the Carrera RS design has been mimicked by builders for many years and as values for an original RS have shot into the stratosphere the impetus for undertaking such projects has only increased. When executed well these RS recreations can themselves become highly sought after, though always for much less money than the original, with the added benefit that it is a car that can be driven and enjoyed as these cars were intended. This all brings us to the car we see here: a Gemini Blue 1971 Porsche 911T Coupe, located in Oregon, that has been built as a tribute to the great Carrera RS showcasing many of the exterior details of the original combined with a period-correct interior that leans toward performance.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4

Another car showcased with beautiful photography. I love it! I can’t be the only one that spends extra time going over the details of a car simply because it’s been presented well so I’m not sure why more sellers don’t do something like this. Anyway, this car also happens to have quite a few details to peruse so in this case the extra time is needed. Here we have a Black 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe, located in Oregon, with Black and Tan interior and 91,204 miles. So we have a nice looking 964 that comes from the very first year of the Carrera 4’s existence. From there things get quite a bit more interesting. The engine is now a 3.8 liter with Carrera RS spec clutch and flywheel. That extra power is brought to a halt using “Big Red” calipers and rotors and controlled by a suspension upgraded to Carrera Cup trim. The interior has been kept mostly stock with the exception of Recaro seats and 5-point harnesses to keep the driver and passenger securely in place. All together, a car that looks really nice and should perform very well!

1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

Ask a gaggle of Porsche enthusiasts what they would consider the most iconic production Porsche and you’ll likely get a small variety of answers. But one of those possibilities is almost certainly a version of the car seen here, the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS. Built to satisfy homologation requirements so that Porsche could compete in Group 4 racing, the Carrera RS was an instant success, more than tripling the necessary 500 model production run. Offered in both Lightweight and Touring trim, the RS combined increased engine output with lower weight and improved aerodynamics to push the performance envelope and provide its owners with the ultimate road-going Porsche of the day. The example we see here is a fully restored 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Touring that has received engine work from Kremer Racing to increase displacement from the standard 2.7 liters to a full 3.0 liter flat-6. The Kremer brothers were a well established Porsche racing team who went on to win the 1979 24 Hrs of Le Mans at the wheel of their Kremer Porsche 935.
