This shop may be relatively local to you and be able to give you some further perspective: - 900 Series Motorsports - Exclusively Porsche - Las Vegas

Cages can be great for safety AND stiffening, but are not the best choice for a street car from a safety standpoint.

It is really easy to get an older 911 handling well and folks have been doing since the first car were delivered by Porsche AG.

What may not be easy any more is finding truly experienced and knowledgeable resources.

Many of the best never come anywhere internet forums.

I have had my '75 911 since 2001 and it has always handled really well. Sub 2,000 pounds with between 310 and 370 bhp through the years from 3.6 - 3.8 engines. 16 inch tires (currently 12 wide in front and 14 wide in back). Primarily a race car, but registered for the street (smog exempt).

Several cars like mine are coming free from local owners moving on to their next life phases.

It just isn't that hard to get and apply known handling recipes.

The most important part is the definition of handling goals.
