I see the signature says 1976 911s, this particular model is becoming very desirable and most of them have been molested. If you have matching numbers I would reconsider...

In the end do what makes you the happiest.....

The car was an abandoned project.....no trans. or engine, so keeping it original was never really an option… the big positives were zero rust and no sunroof.

My idea from the beginning was to build what I call a street legal ”race car” for lack of a better term.

All non essentials have been stripped….the car has been painted the Porsche color “sports classic gray” inside and out…..the interior will be spare in keeping with the race car theme.

I have 4 speed 930 trans to go with the 930 motor and will probably go coilovers as the suspension has to be redone anyway and the TB tube will get in the way of the engine/trans, as this is 911 chassis.

Based on the suggestions above, I feel that the narrow look is the way to go for now….I will be building custom front and rear bumpers in FG to eliminate the “impact bumper” look.

I would really like to find that FG tail that fits the IC…..

Thanks
Kevin

Almost exactly the way I am going, but with a 930 roller. Keep us posted of your build.

To get that car to look right you need to add some flares before you add the 934 flares to the car. It is a good look I would have loved to done a 934 cab. and would have done it if I knew I was going to do all I ended up doing.

In my usual “I don’t know what the f’ I am doing….but 250hp just won’t be enough for my 2000# car” style, I am having a 930 motor built.

I also have acquired a set of “934” flares so that is an option, to run 9’s and 11’s or something like that.

Not sure if a narrow car with a turbo tail would look right so maybe an IC set up to fit under the stock 911 lid exists?

My main concern is tire width/traction, hence the dilemma as I have never driven a stock 930, let alone what this thing will be once done…..

As always your wisdom is appreciated.

Thanks

narrow


or wide
