Survivor: 1979 Porsche 930

The subject for today’s Survivor is this all original 1979 Porsche 930 with only 15,624 miles from new. It had remained in one family it’s whole life until it’s recent sale and still possesses all of it’s original paperwork and equipment, down to it’s silly federally mandated 85 mph speedometer that the U.S. required at the time. We have no idea what the government was thinking back then, maybe that it would be less tempting to drive fast if the it looked pinned at 85? Whatever the case, that didn’t stop most 911 Turbos from being tossed off the road backwards because of drop throttle oversteer caused by the pendulum effect in full swing (pun intended), a fate that this one fortunately escaped. Come take a closer look at this museum piece with us on the following page as we check this particular car out and touch upon the subject of their current value, amongst other related rantings… When new, the original owner of this vehicle payed $15,000 over MSRP for the opportunity to own the black on black 3.3 liter 300 hp turbo 4 speed Porsche exotic, and who would blame him? We like the cut of his and his grandson’s jib, […]

Bruce Canepa Offers Porsche 959 Upgrades

Since Porsche 959’s are now legal to be roaming freely on our open American highways, Bruce Canepa of Canepa Design in Scotts Valley, California offers a conversion available in 2 phases to really bring them up to their full potential. To most die hard automotive enthusiasts, Bruce needs no introduction, but in case you still aren’t sure of who he is, maybe the video of his shakedown of a Porsche 917 on a public highway embedded in our previous 917 restoration feature here will help the comprehension process: http://www.carbuildindex.com/19504/1972-porsche-91710-008-restoration/. To say that this guy knows his Porsches would be a gargantuan understatement. Continue on the following page for more details on the warmed-over 959… He starts with extremely well cared for examples from his search all around the world. Since the cars are all wheel drive, a lot of them have been driven throughout the year in all sorts of weather conditions, so it is important for him to find clean, low mileage examples with 6,000 miles or less. The conversion costs between $100,000 and $140,000 with Phase 1 producing 575 hp and Phase 2 is said to make north of 640 hp. He installs a new Motec-based engine management system, new […]

GMG Porsche 997 WC GT2 4.0 + Race Car Builds

This Porsche 997 GT2 is the subject of project car build thread posted on 6speedonline.com. It was created in Santa Ana, California by GMG Racing’s founder, Fabryce Kutyba for a customer of theirs, with the goal of building the ultimate street car along side a race version of the same car. Because GMG is involved with professional racing in the World Challenge and ALMS, they are able to use their extensive racing experience and utilize the technology learned through competition to improve and refine their road cars ventures. These two should be poster children for the shop, but the fact is that they turn out quality projects such as these on what seems like a regular basis. A  labor intensive carbon roof was installed, which is roughly a 20 hour job alone, and then the chassis was sent out for a 4 stage paint process. The custom roll cage was fabricated with removable door bars that bolt in and out very easily, as this was built as a street car first, not just for the track. The cage is tucked into the A pillars and B pillars to ensure good visibility. 19×10 fronts wheels and 19×13 rears with Pirelli Trofeo’s look menacing on GMG 130-R rims of GMG’s own design. Pictures of both cars are seen side […]

1969 Porsche 912 GT3 Cup

This 1969 Porsche 912 is the subject of a build thread on rennlist.com by it’s owner, forum member “Petevb”. Built by Wevo in San Carlos, California, the car that you see before you is obviously no simple 4 cylinder stock 912. That was probably unnecessary to point out, because if you are here you more than likely already know that many monster 911 street and track cars have been built from unsuspecting 901 shells. The net result of this particular blend can best be described as a “1969 912 GT3 Cup”, as it starts with the shell of a 912,  takes the motor from a 2006 GT3 Cup car, utilizes a 993 series 6 speed transmission, and then PCCB carbon brakes and wraps it all up in a package weighing just 2,180 pounds. That’s quite a bit less than the 2006 Porsche GT3 Cup car’s 2,500 pound curb weight from which it’s engine originally derived, but at the same time, this vintage car does not employ all of the aerodynamic and down force advantages that the more modern car has benefited from years of development. So, which one is better? Is that even a plausible inquiry? There is no easy answer to that question, but there […]
