Built on a freshly restored RHD UK 911T from 1971 – the correct year for an original ST – this chassis is one of just fifty 911T models sold in Britain that year. Finished in Light Yellow with highly authentic period trim, it is beautiful to look at and offers an impeccable driving experience.
Handbuilt by a British Porsche specialist and experienced historic racing driver with many vintage race builds to his credit, this car comes with not one, but two engines. First is the original ‘matching numbers’ 2.2-litre flat six with short stroke, small fan housing and lots of other period tricks. Fitted with SSIs and an ST silencer, it is quiet and brings heat into the car: this is generally used as the ‘road’ engine.
For fast road and potential competition use, this car also comes with a beautiful magnesium-cased 2.5-litre short stroke engine. Spec includes twin-plug ignition, Mechanical Fuel Injection (MFI), G60 cams, 964 oil pump, factory Sport rods and more. This engine alone would be tens of thousands of pounds to build separately.
Prepared with the FIA homologation papers firmly in mind for Historical Technical Passport purposes, this S/T features hand-hammered steel rear arch flares, with the correct wider wheels. Rarer Porsche parts include 2.7 RS brakes, Carrera 3.0 suspension components and huge attention to detail to make it as period as possible while removing chassis mass, especially unsprung weight.
We are confident that this RHD S/T recreation is one of the most interesting early 911s currently available. It deserves your full attention! Contact us to discuss on 01923 269788.
