2.8 RSR Evocation - the begin of the end

We have just one life................. and it's like i want to begin my narrative.

I make the presentation, My Name is Christophe , I'm french (so please excuses the lot of mistake i will do in my narrative).

It's a long time i read all your post and especially the post for réplica RS , RSR ....

Jack Olsen is one of my inspirer, but lots of another fellow too, cnielsen, edesign45, jjwood.

Special salutation for my friend Bill in Washington with is wide body conversion, (when you want for another French BBQ In France)


I be back, to my history so like i said, We have just one single life and it is very short, then it is necessary to take pleasure and realize our dream.

My first dream of Porsche I live it three years ago by the purchase of Froggy, a beautiful yellow 2.7 (who came from USA)

begin after a beautiful 2.7 Grey Atlas, this change of color having make debate in French forum in his time..

A big work had been made with change of some parts of sheet steel, complete cleaning of

the inside but some gaps existed which will be erased this time this.



Memories:











and finally i have driving with "My Porsche"





Nevertheless my dream was not complete, I continued to dream about the icone, about the 2.8RSR.

The real? Let us forget, less than 50 produced copies, astronomical price...

The replica, the evocation , to be able to roll little as in the real ..........

For it were needed some things:

A base, a few money, time, the courage, and the stomac to launch the project.

I had everything, but I had especially a dilemma, it was necessary to sell "Froggy" to buy one new base.

But "Froggy" I knew her, I knew what I left. A new base, I would have been able to Met by unpleasant surprises.

Then the decision fell, I would leave "Froggy", and thus on January 1st, 2011, I begin the Project.

This project will spend lots month or years, i will work by stage, the first the Look,

second all Rolling train and brake, third the engine

Bought for today:

Carpet RS Light Gris Perlon
Bucket seats classic
Stealing Momo Prototipo + Hub
Door panel RS
Handle RS 73
Front 2.8 rsr bumper
Wheel rims Fuchs 7/16 ( ET23.3) and 9/16 ( ET15) and tyres
before Length Hood
Ducktail
before Flashing in wings Complete body, joints, mirror.
Rear steel Extensions wings
Burn(Blow) out wings before
rear and Front steel Attach hood
Gas cap RSR
Grey strip Carrera
Badge Porsche hood sticker
blanck from deletion clock RS
chrome-plated windscreen
Chrome-plated rectangular mirrors
windows and rear quarter panels chrome-plated
Handles chrome-plated door
rear window Chrome-plated
Lighthouses before chrome-plated

Remain to buy:

Rear 2.8 rsr bumper
complete poly 2.8 RSR Wings fronts
Rear Red reflector of bumper

More all which come to add according to the progress.

I don't speak about all nights on the internet, to create my price data sheet, for every part. To scrutinize "le bon coin" French announcement website,
or Ebay in search of the second-hand part which would allow to reduce the bill.
The long nights of study on such or such part, the type of seat.....

But it was also necessary to begin the dismantling.







Then sell parts, to complete the stake of departure for the purchase of the new parts.

Quite slowly I accumulated parts.
