This stunning, lightweight STR Tribute started life as a 1979 911SC. It was media blasted to metal, modified with GT Racing fenders, hood and engine cover. It was primed with rust repellent primer and finished in Guards Red. It features a very racy center fill gas cap as featured on period racers.
The engine was completely rebuilt from the bottom up. The original 3.0 was upgraded to 3.2, with new pistons and cylinders. All new hardware and upgrades: oil cooler, oil pump, chain tensioners, etc, as well as a conversion from the temperamental fuel injection to 6 PMO carbs and a digital ignition system from Clewett Engineering.
The car has a polished stainless steel M&K muffler attached to new Dansk heat exchangers.
The interior features: New dashboard, new headliner, new lightweight RS carpet, RS door panels and pulls, Rennline floor board, Schroth 4 point seatbelts, Autopower roll bar (bolted in), quick release fire extinguisher and the most comfortable period correct reclining seats. The wiring is new and the gauges were rebuilt by Palo Alto Speedo.
This car also has a new brake system, new shocks, new clutch, new throw out bearing, new pressure plate and a lightweight flywheel. The transmission has been rebuilt with all new synchros.
This beauty is sitting on very desirable Minilite race wheels (8x15 fronts, 9x15 rears) that are fitted with New Michelin Tb street legal tires.
The workmanship has to be seen to be believed! It's incredible!

The Revs Institute (nee Collier Collection) recently reunited racer Gerard Larrousse with the 1967 Porsche 911R that he drove to victory in both the Tour de France and the Tour de Corse in 1969. Larrousse, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday, competed in sports car racing, rallying and Formula One during his career. He also […]
The Porsche 911 Targa with its integral roll bar was as much a product of necessity as creativity. Safety advocates in the 1960s were targeting convertibles as inherently dangerous at the same time that Porsche was planning to produce its new 911 with a drop top. The imaginative solution was… viola!… a built-in roll bar […]
The Porsche 911 has always been a fantastic sports car, but the GT2 made it something more. This year, the GT2 celebrates 25 years of terrorizing supercars (and some of its own drivers), so Porsche offered a retrospective. Launched in 1995, the GT2 was originally conceived as a racing homologation special for the GT2 class, […]

In 1978, Porsche updated and upgraded its 911S with a 3.0-liter engine that matched the displacement, albeit not the power, of its former Turbo Carrera model. Voila! The 911S became the 911SC, which was available as a coupe or with a Targa top. In 1983, its final year of production, the car was available as […]
RM Sotheby’s first online-only catalog sale, which replaced the annual live South Florida auction because of the COVID-19 pandemic, totaled $13.7 million in overall sales for 259 collector cars and 21 lots of memorabilia.

It is now quite a few years ago that Porsche had its American headquarters in Reno, Nevada. With so many of its customers in nearby California, and from the perspective of corporate taxation, the move from New Jersey probably made sense. However, it didn’t take very long for German executives to tire of the even […]
Many people believe that the air-cooled Porsche 911 market is inflated to the point that they have become unaffordable. I beg to differ. In the past 9 months, the prices on those sports cars have fallen quite a bit, and if you spend time shopping, you can find a nice 911 for less than $30,000. […]
