Starting life as a 3.0 litre 911 SC Targa, this Porsche has been extensively restored and reimagined by specialists Classic Car Revivals. The body was stripped back to bare metal, with all corrosion dealt with accordingly, and refinished in the stunning, glassy Merlin Purple metallic paintwork you see today. The five-speed gearbox and engine have been subject to a full rebuild and detail, which sees the car uprated from a 3.0 to a 3.2 litre short stroke engine which is completed with a bespoke stainless exhaust system and modern electronic fuel injection system with a billet individual throttle body set up and Link ECU. The suspension and braking system have also been fully rebuilt and detailed with uprated Powerflex bushes and Bilstein shock absorbers, coupled with custom built Billet six-pot and four-pot brakes. Fitted with a custom set of 17” wheels, detailed in satin white and polished aluminium and shod with a set of Michelin tyres. Under bonnet has received the same treatment with custom panelling in leather. The Targa roof has also been disassembled, detailed and restored with new rubbers throughout. Other desirable modifications include the genuine Hella projector LED headlights, Billet wing mirrors and the centre fill fuel tank adding to the Resto-mod style. The interior is in superb order and includes a set of Recaro wing back seats in custom houndstooth woven leather, supplied and fitted by a reputable Porsche interior trimmer. Also fitted is a beautiful Momo steering wheel to match the purple theme throughout, along with a Porsche Classic Communication Management System which has Apple Car play, Bluetooth and DAB radio.
Having covered a mere 352 miles since its restoration, this 911 is in excellent condition throughout and is offered with a photographic record of the extensive restoration, various bills and invoices, and the V5C registration document. With its exceptional attention to detail and offering a punchy 274bhp this is the best Resto-mod example we have seen to date and one which is ready to be enjoyed immediately.
