1975 PORSCHE 911


$89,900

THE STORY

Produced in Germany between 1964 and 1989, the Porsche 911 was originally developed as a much more powerful, larger and more comfortable replacement for the Porsche 356. The new car made its debut at the 1963 “Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung”, better known as the Frankfurt Motor Show to English speakers.

Initially, Porsche designated the car as the “901”, however they faced resistance from Peugeot on the grounds that in France it had exclusive rights to car names formed by three numbers with a ‘0’ in the middle. Rather than sell the car under a new name solely in France, Porsche changed the name to ‘911’ for all markets.

Mechanically, the 911 was notable for being air-cooled and possessing a rear-engine. From its inception, the car was modified both by private teams and the factory itself for racing, rallying and other types of automotive competition. The original 911 series is often cited as the most successful competition car ever produced, especially when its variations are included. An example is the powerful 911-derived 935, which won “24 Hours of Le Mans” and other major sports car races outright against prototypes.

THE CAR

Imported into Australia in July 2008, this car was purchased by the current owner in October 2008.

Originally registered as a road car in Queensland (registration number “A911”), this car has undergone some work to convert it into a track car.

Parts acquired and installed include a fuel cell from Australian Fuel Cells (2016), a Momo steering wheel (2018), RSR door handles (2018), a Walker chassis roll cage (2017), and new tail-light housings (2020). Some bodywork has been undertaken by RSR Sports Cars in Edwardstown, SA.

According to the mechanic who has been working on this car, the car needs the following work to complete it ready for racing:

  • Finish wiring the vehicle. Has an original loom in a box.
  • Finish fitting lights.
  • Needs front and rear fiberglass bars to suit the rest of the widebody kit. Pictures are available to show what the car is meant to look like completed.
  • Front oil cooler to be plumbed up to vehicle.
  • Setup suspension heights.
  • Walker roll cage paperwork completed for CAMS but needs to be inspected and approved.
  • Missing front and rear glass.
