1979 Porsche 911 Outlaw RSR
Offered for sale is this 911 which left the factory on June 10 1979 as a slicktop sunroof-less 911SC. It was acquired by the previous owner a few years ago. This particular enthusiast had a particular love for Porsches of the early 1970s and had been looking for a good donor car to turn into an outlaw tribute. So shortly after it was acquired the groundbreaking restoration was begun. After the car was disassembled the body and chassis were entrusted to Backyard Legends in Concord NC who to date have done a number of high-quality Porsche builds. All rust was removed and fiberglass flares along with other fiberglass panels were purchased from GT Racing. The original hood was in very good shape and was retained. The entire car was stripped to bare metal then painted in #018 Glasurit orange. Panel fit and finish is to a very high level and was also fitted with carbon fiber rear spoiler. Since the car retained its original engine. The rebuild of this unit was entrusted to noted Porsche engine specialist David Brown. The unit was fitted with new Mahle Barrels that increased the displacement to 3.2-liters. This engine was then fitted with Balanced factory rods forged JE piston and a 3.8 RSR grind cam. The ignition system is a coil on plug that is controlled via the MS3x Megasquirt ecu. Fuel delivery was handled by a MegaSquirt injection system and a custom 70mm throttle body. This finished engine produced 280hp at the crank and naturally this leads to very brisk level of performance. To cope with the extra power Dave Brown also attended to the transaxle; he fully rebuilt the unit fit a Wevo shifter and upgraded the rear end with a Wavetrac LSD. To ensure the car's chassis was able to deal with the substantial power upgrade the suspension was fitted with all new Elephant Racing components featuring Von Shocks coilovers all around monoball and polybronze bushings throughout decambered balljoints RSR style front and rear adjustable sway bars and adjustable camber plates. The steering system was completely restored and upgraded turbo tie rods were added. Additional chassis bracing was welded onto the shock mounts and sway bar mounts as well as a 935-style front X brace. Braking is handled by modified 993 brake calipers that utilize floating 930 front rotors and 930 rear rotors. This has ensured that the car has excellent road-holding and braking. Lastly the interior was trimmed to a very high level. The dash was finished with a radio and glove box delete along with a Rennline lower dash delete wrapped in Alcantara and an RSR style 10k tach. The door panels were finished in carbon fiber to make the interior look even more sporting. The car was fitted with GT Classic Ralley seats that were upholstered in leather and Alcantara with contrasting orange stitching. The final assembly of the vehicle was entrusted to Porsche specialist CM Performance in Bessemer City NC. The end result of over a year's work is truly astonishing. The 911 was first displayed at the 2018 Werks Reunion at Amelia Island Concours where it scored a first in the 911 Outlaw class. This particular outlaw 911 is a fantastic tribute to the legendary RSR. A great car for Porsche Club events or as an exciting weekend cruiser.
