  • Huge specification intended for competition use
  • Competition history & success in late 90’s/early 00’s

This Porsche 911 certainly is not for the faint hearted, it was built to an extremely high specification in the 1990’s, intended for competition use, but kept road legal. The car went on to have a highly successful competition career, racing in the Intermarque championship and Porsche open between 1997 and 2003, accruing wins along the way and as we understand it, even a couple of championships too. A decision was made when starting the build to use a Targa as the base, due to the thicker floor pans they had versus their coupé alternatives, which when a coupé roof was added, meant a far stiffer body shell, perfect for racing. The bodywork was carried out by a Mr Steve Winter from Bodyworx, evidently to a particularly high standard.

Options for 17” slick compound tyres were rather limited at the time, so the body was widened to allow for more standardised 18” options, which were more widely available. The wheels are a set of staggered BBS E88 split rims, which are particularly desirable these days and they give the car an excellent stance. The car is painted in, what is believed to be, Porsche Iris Blue metallic, it presents in generally good order with the usual wear you would expect for a car of this nature. The bonnet and doors are carbon fibre items, which offer a drastic weight reduction and show just how far this build was taken. Moving inside, the car has been fitted with a very comprehensively built roll cage, complete with door bars, OMP bucket seats with four-point harnesses and a fire suppression system.

The windows are all polycarbonate, except the windscreen, with air ducts channelled through the rear quarter windows, to aid with cooling the 3.3-litre turbocharged flat-six out back. A hybrid turbo has been fitted to boost power even further and a larger intercooler has been fitted, naturally. An alloy fuel cell, with swirl pot, has been fitted, along with uprated fuel pumps and the car is fitted with a G50 gearbox. In the handling department, we find Alcon brakes and remotely adjustable Co2 cylinder suspension, Elephant anti-roll bars and rose-joints.

The car is supplied with stacks of invoices amounting to many, many thousands of pounds over the years, along with an excellent record of its competition history, a V5C registration document and we are advised the car will be presented for an MoT test prior to the sale. It would be nigh on impossible to replicate as build like this for even double our estimated price, if you are on the hunt for an extreme 911, which is ideally set-up for driving to and from track days and will run rings around many much more expensive and much newer machines, then this ticks all of the boxes.
