’78 Porsche 911 SC 3.0… Outlaw school !

Pas besoin d’en faire des tonnes… Quand je suis tombé sur cette Porsche 911 SC 3.0l de 1978, j’l’ai trouvée aussi modifiée que sobre. Puis en y regardant de plus près, le gars y a fait quand même pas mal de modifs. Et comme j’ai eu du mal à m’en décrocher, j’me suis dit que […]

Resurrecting a 911T, Dust and All

Graham bought his 1969 Porsche 911T back in the mid-1990s, long before the air-cooled 911 boom. Graham found his purple 911T in the Netherlands, and after parting with a then-substantial number of guilders (which Porsche reports was equal to about €21k), he drove the car home. Upon his return the purple T became Graham’s daily driver. It made regular forays to UK shows, trips across the continent, and braved London traffic for the next four years.

After four years with the car though, Graham left for the UAE, and the car was left behind in a London parking facility. While Graham thought he would be spending just a few years in the UAE, his brief move quickly turned into a decade, and the 911 sat. It sat, accumulating dust, and amusingly the word « shill » was fingered into the dust on its flank.

When Graham returned, the dust-shrouded 911 was sent to Tower Porsche, who had cared for the car before he departed. Surprisingly, the long-idle car returned to life swiftly with a fresh battery and a few cranks on the air-cooled flat-six. With some further fettling, fresh Michelins, and tuning the car was returned to running order.

But Graham opted not to clean it. Still ensconced in its protective layer of London car park dust, the car was driven from London to the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed. There Porsche spotted Graham and his purple 911T, and concocted a plan: Bring John’s classic T and the marque’s modern-minimalist Carrera T together.

While the Flatsixes staff is somewhat split in our feelings on the new T, seeing the new and old cars together warms the cockles of even my curmudgeonly, blackened heart. The two cars are separated by five decades, seemingly dozens of ECUs, and about 1,000 pounds, but they are united in both layout and spirit.

Get Schooled About Porsche’s Special Carrera 2.7 RS

What’s the difference between the Sport and Touring models of the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS? How did Porsche drop over 200 pounds from the RS to get the M471 model down to fighting fit? What’s the history of Porsche’s special Grand Prix White paint color? Where’s the collector market on these incredible examples of Porsche sporting history? What more could you possibly want to know about the 2.7 RS? You name it, Road Scholars is here to help you navigate the world of Porsche’s first RennSport model.

If there is anyone who might know the answers to all of these questions and more, it’s Cam Ingram from Road Scholars. He’s been surrounded by incredible Porsches like these for his entire life, and has probably driven just about every Porsche ever made. To call him an expert would be under selling it.

In the short video you’ll learn a bit about these crazy cool vintage lovelies. It’s also an opportunity to get up close and personal with a trio of cars that mere mortals don’t normally get to set foot anywhere near. Only 1308 examples of the Touring (M472) and 200 examples of the Sport (M471) were built in 1973, and while the value curve of these has flattened out lately, they’re still incredibly expensive to purchase, own, maintain, and insure. If you have the means, we highly recommend it.
