that's a lot of money for a 911 S with RS look... no matter how clean it looks

might as well buy a T , turn it in a RS clone, with any engine you want in it .. and still be lot's cheaper and just as clean

in the end, it's an RS close based on an S... nothing original about it other than this clone isn't based on a T

Oh trust me, if I had $109k so spend on a Porsche, this wouldn't be it. I just think it's kinda cool...interesting history.

Edit: Ack! ..you changed your post. I think it's as interesting for it's history as for the car itself. That's what makes it a collectable.

Lets see what the market says the provenance is worth as a premium.

More info on the early s board:

Here's a quote from Peter: "My personal car is a 911S Sportomatic Coupe. I think Sportomatic is the neatest transmission ever devised."

That's not the car there selling, the one there selling is a 5 speed.

I am not into this kind of things. I personally would not attach any value to the fact that Mr Gregg's bottom has sat on my seat...

If I was a collector it would be a different story... But then I would either look at it as an investment or something to cherish looking at it...

As it is I see it as a very very expensive RS clone.

Does $109,000 include the transport in back? If so, then it's probably worth it. Still, nice car!

I was fortunate enough to get a personal tour of that facility (Brumos' race shop) several years ago. They've got so many nice toys in that building, you wouldn't believe it. Everything from a 550 Spyder to Peter Gregg's 914-6GT to a 935 to a 917. The transports themselves are spectacular!

That summarizes it all for me. Nothing special.

Jerry S. is probably already completing the deal. This is just the kind of stuff he likes to own.

I'm sure he'd get his money back today easy. Saw it locally recently having body work repairs from a rear end accident.

The price really isn't out of line. The long hoods have been bringing crazy money lately. Sure this is a clone but it's different from the home brew clones. Add the Brumos and Gregg thing and they is in the ball park.

Just wait until you see the prices at the Monterey auctions. They're going to be totally insane. This escalation is taking place in the art and furniture markets as well. Right now there's just a lot of serious money chasing anything with provenance. No matter how tenuous that provenance might be.

I was wondering if it was his street-driven Sporto or not, guess I got the answer from B D

You can never pay too much for a long hood 911. You might though but it too soon.

Here's a '73 911S Targa for $119,000

Amazing how the long hoods have came to favor. Bought my first in 04'.....one of the few I bought "RIGHT" as its done nothing but go up from there. In 05' that sounded high. In 12' for an S with history and clean it seems sadly all too in line.
