For Sale: 1979 Porsche 911 in Sherman Oaks, California

Vehicle Description

Like the originalRSthe performance of the car is amazing! With 300hp at the skinny rear tires and pulling only 2300 pounds the acceleration is...impressive. The short shifter takes some practice to master, but so does the rest of the car and that is the point isn't it? This car is not about the "easy" button - its about driver skill, mechanical sympathy and enjoying a car that fills all your senses with air cooled wonderfulness every time you climb aboard. If you are a good driver you will be rewarded with instant response and excellent feel, the skinny original size rubber wrapped over correct FUCHS wheels are not as grippy as modern wide tires, but this grip level allows you to slide the car and approach your limits and car's limits without a ticket to the big house. I wanted it to look like a 73RSand deliver that driving experience and I made choices during the build to support that vision. The car is fanatical light, no AC, no, heat (Although heat can be added easily, parts come with the car.) There is no radio but you can put one in if that sweet sound of the 3.6 engine ripping though the gears is not working for you. I even forgo sun visors but a new set goes with the car. The car is pure Porsche goodness without any filters. About the build: The car started as a Rust free, never hit 1979 Euro Coupe. Galvanized body, no sunroof, roll up windows. It was stripped to bare metal and backdated to the 1973 long nose look andRSstyle bodywork including steel front fenders. All of that was sprayed Viper Green and it looks fantastic. The black trim was changed to polished and the windscreen was replaced. AuthenticRSgraphics were added as well as the FUCHS wheels. Inside, the original interior was gutted and replaced with a restored dash pad, restored gauges with LED lighting and 10,000 rpm tach. Authentic RSR style seats with leather and houndstooth hold you tight in the turns. The rest of the interior is also new from headliner to the gray perlon carpet. All the rubber in the car is new. The engine is a fresh 3.6 twin plug 964 engine with PMO Throttle bodies and stand alone injection with coil on plug ignition. AnRSAmerica A/C delete motor plate further cleans up the engine bay. The gearbox is a fresh 915 with very close ratios supporting rapid acceleration. Both rear tires are kept hooked up by a Gaurd limited slip diff turning a 7/32 ring and pinion. The suspension uses Elephant racing spring plates and rear torsion bars. The shocks are your basic green Porsche shocks which I find ideal for this build. The brakes are upgraded to Brembo calipers front and rear. It uses SC rotors on the rear and I as I remember Boxster rotors on the front. The brakes are fabulous. The car has only about 1500 miles on it since done, so it still very fresh. I just had the valvesadjusted new coil packs and spark plugs just a month ago.
