Vehicle Name 911RS, 914-6/GT
Year 7174
Make Porsche
Model 911RS and 914-6/GT
Color Prussian Blue and Saturn Yellow
History The 71, 911 is an RS tribute car that I built using as many factory parts as possible. No fancy suspension bits and pieces, just good old factory parts that went on the original RS. It does have the 18mm factory 930 anti-sway bar and late model S-Calipers restored by "you know who". The engine is a 3.0 MFI build using an early SC motor as the base. The compression is 9.5:1 and again, aside from the slightly larger displacement, all of the goodies aree factory correct. The goal is to have a reliable car that rides and drives the way the factory intended it to.

The 74, 914-6/GT was built on the exact same principle. I wanted to have as many factory goodies as possible as I was building this car. The oil system is all factory GT and the motor is a 2.5 liter twin plug six built on a sandcast aluminum case.

Exterior 911RS:

Full RS body work with factory flares and fiberglass hoods and bumpers. The paint is Prussian Blue with light blue Carrera graphics and wheels.


Full GT body work with factory flares and glass hoods and bumpers. The paint is Saturn Yellow and the bumpers and trim are satin black.

Interior 911RS:

Full RS trim with original Recaro RS seats. Roll bar and felt carpet throughout with a back seat delete.


Full GT trim. Felt carpet and back wall with an engine access panel. GT roll bar modeled off the #40 car. Custom made GT seats built off the 914 shell. Momo Mod 7 wheel and a factory short shifter. Palo Alto gauges all built to stock trim.

Performance Upgrades 911RS:

3.0 MFI motor, Elephant bushings on stock springs. Factory flares allowed for 7x15" up front and 8x15" wheels in the rear. Late model S-calipers up front ride on new Bilstein struts and inserts. Otherwise stock.


2.5 liter motor, Elephant bushings on stock 911 18.8mm front torsion bars. 930 anti-sway bar with Tarret RSR arms and drop links. 908 calipers on raised spindle Konis up front. Elephant bushings in the rear on strengthened arms with 914-6/GT calipers and original 914-6/GT Konis. Factory flares allow wider tires on 7 & 8x15" wheels masterfully restored to an RSR finish by Harvey Weidman.

Engine / Under the Hood 911RS:

3.0 MFI motor. 36mm intakes with S-cams and 9.5:1 compression. Factory MFI heat exchangers.


2.5 liter twin plug motor with Weber 40IDA3C carbs (I'm at 4,500 ft altitude). 10.5:1 compression with 38mm intake ports on Web 140/102 cams. Factory heat exchangers.

Both motors built by Jeff Hines

Suspension 911RS:

Front - stock suspension on Elephant PolyBronze bushings. Stock torsion bar sizes with a rare 18mm 930 anti-sway bar. Bilsteins struts with late model S-Calipers loaded with Porterfield R4S pads.
Rear - steel arms with RS stiffening mods around the bearing carrier. Elephant PolyBronze bushings and mono-balls and Bilsteins shocks. Factory 24mm torsion bars and stock caliper loaded with Porterfield R4S pads.

Front - 911 arms with stock 911 18.8 torsion bars. Koni struts with raised spindles and stock Koni vintage inserts. A rare 18mm 930 bar was sourced with Tarret RSR arms and adjustable drop links.

Wheels and Tires Nothing too exciting here. 7 and 8x15" Fuchs all around with RSR finishes provided by Harvey Weidman. Pretty much stock tire sizes as would show up on a 1980 911SC search at tire rack. Pirellis for the 914-6/GT and Kumhos for the 911.
