This lovely 911 was on display in the paddock at Laguna Seca. It started life as a mid 80's 3.2 Carrera and is a sort of replica of a 60's 911 ST, bodywise. It runs a 3.8 litre engine giving 425 BHP. It uses a GT3 crankshaft and titanium connecting rods and revs to 8,000 RPM. Weighing in at 2400 lbs (1088 kilos), it must be a rocket. The workmanship was extraordinary, utterly perfect. It uses Hella Bi-Xenon headlights, lightweight aircon, even the scuttle panel at the base of the screen has been replaced with a 993 part which has the wiper mounts in the centre. Most of the external steel body panels have been replaced by carbon fibre panels. For the early 911 anoraks out there, check out the front indicator chrome surrounds. Magic. I spoke to the builder of the car, and he's expecting to sell them for about US$275,000. Notwithstanding my comments about the 993RS, I could live with one of these.
