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 […]

1972 Porsche 917/10-008 Restoration

This 1972 Porsche 917/10-008 was the subject of a restoration by Freisinger Motorsport in Germany. You may remember the shop from our recent previous feature of their “Moby Dick” 935 renovation, which can be found linked in “Related posts” at the bottom of the following page. The shop is involved with restorations of a number of historic Porsche race cars and this particular 917 is no exception. It is an ex Vasek Polak Can Am racer formally driven by Milt Minter and said to have crashed in 1972 during “training”, which we assume translates to “practice”. The pictures of the project are fascinating, as are the performance numbers that these brutal animals produced… Weighing in at just a scant 1,700 pounds, these twin turbocharged flat 12’s are said to generate almost 1,000 horsepower and 900 ft. lb. of torque. That translates to 0-60 mph in 2.1 seconds, 0-100 mph in 3.9 and 0-200 in just 13.4. Yeah, hold on to your bloomers. While those figures are absolutely astonishing, what’s even more mind blowing is that the following year’s 917/30 models made 1,600 horsepower in qualifying trim. The engine and transmission in the car featured here are said to have been […]

1973 Porsche 911 RS Restoration

This 1973 Porsche 911 RS was the subject of a nut and bolt rotisserie restoration by the marque experts at CPR Classic Restorations in Fallbrook, California. The master craftsmen have been in business for over 40 years, restoring some of the best 356′s and 911′s in the world to absolute show winning examples, and this particular RS is no exception. We can never go very long here without featuring a 911 build or restoration project of some sort, as the iconic model has been around for so many years in an assortment of so many flavors that we actually have to restrain ourselves from including too many. It is especially difficult when we have one of the best shops at our disposal at just a few finger taps away on the internet. They always include a multitude of detailed photographs of their meticulous projects, making it hard for us to hold back for the perfect timing. Unfortunately, what we don’t have is any back story of this car, so let’s fill in the blanks by starting with a bit of the 911 RS’s history in general, shall we? In order to race the legendary RSR, Porsche had to build a minimum of 500 […]

Not a Restoration: 1978 Porsche 935 “Moby Dick” Build

This 1978 Porsche 935-007 was the restoration project of the marque experts at Freisinger Motorsports in Germany. Serial number 006 and 007 examples of “Moby Dick”, as they came to be known, were the latest developed iterations of the factory 935 series turbocharged race cars. Their elaborately shaped aerodynamic bodies were designed for high speed tracks, while still retaining the classic 911 silhouette. Many unique pieces on the factory racing specials, such as their “upside down” transmissions, larger one piece aluminum brake calipers and 3.2 liter, four valve, twin cam water cooled Type 935/71 engines had not yet been made available to private race teams. And who could blame them, because what hugely-funded factory racing effort wants a lowly privateer to beat them at their own game? In any case, continue on the following page for a brief history of #007’s journey from a 9 year hibernation stint in a Porsche storage unit in Germany to it’s new owner in Los Angeles in 1988, and then back to Germany again for the epic project seen here to begin. The predecessor to this feature car, Moby Dick number 006 seen above, won at the 1978 running of the Silverstone 6 hour race and qualified in […]

1975 Porsche Carrera Turbo Restoration by CPR

This 1975 Porsche 930 Turbo is in it’s final stages of a rotisserie restoration back to stock specification by CPR Classic Restorations in Fallbrook, California. These master craftsmen have been in business for over 40 years, restoring some of the most significant 356 and 911 models in the world into absolute show winning examples. We have featured one of their other Porsche renovations here in the past and we plan to do more in the near future. The first year of production for Porsche’s new forced-fed 3 liter, 234 hp, wide body beast was 1975 and back then they were referred to as “Carrera Turbos” on their rear deck badging. That lasted until the 1978 model year when they just took on just the “Turbo” script and their title came to be known simply as the 930. In any case, we are not here to discuss this Porsche Turbo’s label, we are here to showcase it’s exquisite renovation, so let’s get on with the relevant information now in the form of copious amounts of pictures of it during it’s transformation, shall we?…   We happen to feature quite a few Porsche 911’s here on CarBuildIndex. We do not have a […]
