Yes, I should have included the SCs.

Street, Café, and Race 911s are not necessarily mutually exclusive if you are willing to compromise.

Yes, a race car taken to the limits of the rules and deep pockets are usually not possible to put on the street. A 935K3 is not possible to drive on the street unless it is a street IMSA race. It isn’t even very good on the track unless you are at 10/10s. A GT3-RSR, as Factory delivered, is probably much more suitable for the street, although illegal in most places.

Yes, some Café Racers are not for daily use on the street and are not race cars but are great for turning heads.

Yes, most street 911s are suitable for everything, good driving, look cool, and are suitable for DE and some other track use.

This thread is about street “hotrods.” These are 911s that are still comfortable and useful daily street cars while also improved in their performance both on and off track.

This is not “How to Build a Race Car.”
This is not “How to Build the Coolest Café Racer.”

This is why there lots of different cars. A nice street 911 to drive regularly. A cool Café Racer to cruse the strip. A Race Car to take to POC/PCA and more. Of course you need a beater 4WD for the ice and snow and a Big Iron dually-crew cab turbo-diesel PU to tow your trailer.

Anyone lucky enough to go next week and pick up their new GT3 has the best of all worlds. A wonderful daily driver, will turn heads almost everywhere, and is a wonderful track car. That is what Porsche is all about and a regular 911 can fill the bill.
