The Porsche RSR ‘Evocation/Replica’ market has grown enormously recently and demand is far outstripping the supply of quality machines. In more recent years, these cars have advanced somewhat, with some examples now using genuine RSR components and utilising even more specialised engineering techniques. Consequently, now even some of the Evocation cars are realistically out of reach for most, with examples being offered in excess of £150,000. The car offered here is based on a 1980 911 SC, having been substantially re-engineered to pay homage to the legendary RSR. Our vendor imported the car from the USA two years ago and has enjoyed it ever since. He informs us that the car still retains its original 'SC' chassis and engine number and he has paperwork from Porsche confirming this. The engine is standard 3-litre rebuilt with JE Pistons, uprated connecting rods and 964 cams. When our vendor took delivery of the car we understand it was running an ‘old’ ECU and 3.2 intakes with EIS. It would not idle properly so he asked Tuthill Porsche, the renowned specialists, to fit 45mm PMOs and 'Permatune' ignition was installed. Whilst in their care, they also fixed an oil leak from the crankcase breather which they did successfully. Our vendor had the car set up by ‘BS Motorsport’ and they fitted new discs and pads all round with new rear calipers, whilst the front calipers are from the 964 range. The suspension itself is running Boge sport, thicker torsion bar and ARB’s whilst the lightweight ‘Whale Tail’ and bonnet are glass fibre. The wheels are new 16 inch 'Fuchs' replicas with new Toyo TR1 tyres. Further work sanctioned whilst in our vendor's care, includes retrimming the seats and the interior has enjoyed an ‘RS conversion’ (door and carpet sets). The dramatic paint scheme was finished off, decals added and the roll cage was repainted. More recently, 'Redline Tuning' have completed the final set up and they have confirmed the car now produces 270hp and weighs around 1050kg. Supplied with an original service book, various invoices and the MOT is valid until March 18’. This 911 is a very honest, matching numbers SC that has been prepared as a credible RSR 'Appreciation' and represents a viable route into owning a classic Porsche that will turn heads and really deliver in terms of pride of ownership.
