1995 Porsche 993 RS Clubsport Tribute Build

We are back on track with more build-specific content, and what we have here today is a 1995 Porsche 993 RS Clubsport tribute build by Tune RS Motorsports in Florida. It’s difficult to limit the amount of Porsche builds that we feature here, especially when the outcome is as factory correctly done as this example. Since we in the United States never received the 993 RS model, the shop took it upon themselves to recreate it but as the even more rare factory Clubsport lightweight version using all factory parts gathered for years before the build. They then took it to the next level with a few upgrades too that the originals did not benefit from, which we will cover on the next page. So hop in, let’s take this one for a virtual spin… Starting with a stock 1995 993, Tune RS stripped it to the bone and then started it’s rebuild. They installed the roll cage, then repainted it in Riviera Blue before all of factory correct RS Clubsport parts we put on. Tune RS bored and stroked the 993’s 3.6 liter air cooled engine out to 3.8, same as the original limited edition factory cars, and same […]

1953 Porsche 356 Outlaw Coupe

This 1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe is the subject of a full resto-mod by Willhoit Auto Restoration in Long Beach, California, who has been restoring 356’s since 1976. Their goal as an award winning concours restoration shop is to provide each customer with a 356 that is equally as pleasurable to drive as it is to look at, just as Dr. Porsche had originally intended. The owner of this particular Porsche wanted Willhoit to take his mild mannered vintage tub to another level, while retaining a look that remained factory-esque, + a few or so degrees of intensity. They built him an outlaw coupe that included pre-dating the car to body bumpers, early Gmünd type lighting, and an early dash with Veigel gauges. Purists, please avert your eyes. All others, take note on the proper way to create a 356 hot rod the way it should have come straight from Stuttgart in the beginning…   The addition of the front oil cooler screen is a throw back to the Gmünd bodied cars that were raced until the mid 50s. The suspension, engine, trans, brakes, and all technical aspects of the car were updated to 356B type GT specs, including the floor pan and pedal assembly, adjustable front […]

Porsche 959 Factory Photographs

Happy Thanksgiving Day Weekend 2015 everybody! Today I am re-posting a few features from the past in case you have missed them previously, but will be returning with new content this weekend. Stay tuned and thanks for checking in! Since we are on the subject of vintage factory photographs anyways, what better way to kick off an all new segment than with pictures of Porsche 959’s during their production?In total, 337 street legal 959’s were built at the Zuffenhausen assembly plant through the end of 1988 for the FIA homologation of Porsche’s Group B rally car, known as the Gruppe B. The factory used the race series as a test mule for a new all wheel drive system and advanced aerodynamics, as well as kevlar construction to keep the weight down. It is interesting to note that in 1992 to 1993… …Porsche used spare parts to build 8 additional ‘Komfort’ specification road cars, all propelled by a version of the same horizontally opposed 6 cylinder that we had come to know so very well, although this time around with 2.85 liters and employing twin turbos resulting in 444 hp. The classic 911 silhouette is still obvious in these 80’s super cars, […]

1956 Porsche Pre A Speedster (#81221) Restored and Reunited With Previous Owner

This 1956 Porsche Pre A Speedster (#81221) underwent a full restoration by it’s owner, Chad Comeau, who chronicled the whole ordeal in a detailed thread seen at Porsche356Registry.com, linked below. He had known about the car sitting in storage unused for years and had contacted the owner several times, but he was always told that it was not for sale. About 10 years later a fellow club member contacted Chad and told him that the Speedster might finally be on the market, so he jumped at the opportunity and finally bought it, beginning it’s transformation back to life after a long hibernation. This Porsche had been exercised regularly in it’s previous life at PCA club events, Watkins Glen track adventures, auto crosses, road rallies, driver’s education events and was also daily driven before it was finally put away. When Chad bought the car it still had masking tape on the doors that had held the race number signs. It’s good to see that it had been used the way a Speedster was intended: driven frequently and driven hard. The original, matching numbers 1600 Super engine that came with the car didn’t survive a Watkins Glen track event back in the […]
