Vehicle Name The Beast
Year 1973
Make Porsche
Model 911T-RS Coupe (Non-Sunroof)
Color Red
Packages Hot Rod
History My vision: Early narrow-bodied hot rod. Rally-inspired (911 T/R) exterior. RS-inspired interior. No flared fenders. No ducktail. Just the essentials.

I purchased a matching #'s 1973 911T non-sunroof Coupe in January of 2010. The previous owner had done many mods, some of which were great (like the RS motor rebuild) and some not so good. The car was originally Tangerine, but was repainted a non-Porsche tomato red within the last 10 years.
Exterior - Non-Porsche tomato red color = 8/10 (which is perfect for a driver)
- New front suspension pan + additional rust work performed by Yeaman Auto Body in Palo Alto
- All bumper and side trims shaved/removed

Interior - Gauges and clock restored by Palo Alto Speedometer
- Recovered dash, with center speaker delete
- Vintage Recaro sport seats
- Momo Monte Carlo steering wheel
- Rear seats and panels deleted
- RS carpet kit
- RS rubber mats
- Radio delete
- Black headliner
- Rennline shift linkage cover
- RSA style door panels
- TRE RSR style roll bar
- Autopower 6-point harnesses (stock belts installed as well)
- Rennline black anodized aluminum blower motor cover

Performance Upgrades - SSI heat exchangers
- Sycip 3-out rally style muffler
- SS brake lines

Engine / Under the Hood - Orig 2.4T motor rebuilt to 2.7 RS spec, S cams, boat tailed
- Weber 40 IDA carbs
- Carrera chain tensioner upgrade
- MSD ignition
- Rebuilt 915 Trans
- Porsche factory short shift kit with RS-style boot

Suspension - Adjustable Konis F + R
- Tarrett Sway Bars

Wheels and Tires - 16x6 Fuchs w/matte aluminum finish (done with steel wool); basic steel lug nuts
