Backdated 911 - 88 Carrera To Early 911. When is an early Porsche 911 not an early 911?

Backdated 911 - 88 Carrera To Early 911

Starting with the first generation of 911, owners have modified their cars for performance and aesthetics. In the late 70’s and early 80’s it was common to see earlier ‘longhood’ 911s updated to look like the current crop of more modern, ‘impact-bumper’ cars.

I just became the most recent owner of this '74 911 for $9,500 today! I can't wait to begin applying TLC detailing to what I think is a diamond in the rough. I've become buddies with the owner of a nearby European car repair shop and regularly stop in to chat with him while walking my dog. The only flaw in the car that causes me any concern is this damage under the passenger door handle. DarrylD's Porsche 911 Restoration Project Journal.

My 1977 911 S widebody backdate project

The car is being backdated to an earlier longhood widebody and will be powered by an '86 euro-spec 3.2 engine and 915 trans with LSD. I'm shooting for a lightweight wide ST look vs. all out RSR. Here's what I started with: RS rear flares, turbo tail. Interesting combo. The PO had installed seat covers over the pretty cool stock seats. Stock '77 2.7 engine. Interesting ride stance. 27 Unfvckwithable. Stance|Works has been built on the mentality that if a car has an attractive "stance" then it's something that any enthusiast can appreciate, no matter the make, model or decade in which it was built.

The reality is, stance is far from anything new. Over the various generations of car builders, since the beginning of the Model T, the overall appeal of the vehicle inevitably correlates with how it's wheels sit in relation to their fenders and how far the body is distanced from the road.

R-Gruppe cars, love ‘em or hate ‘em, are the ultimate Porkers in this genre. However, Singer Vehicle Design of Los Angeles has jumped into the fray, seriously reworking an air-cooled long-wheelbase 911 into a modern performance car, doing what Porsche couldn’t (as they switched to water-cooling with the 996).

Selling It All to Roam the Country in a Lamborghini

Then his fiancé left him. So he sold everything, bought a Lamborghini Gallardo and set out across America. This is his amazing story. It’s a love story, but not a conventional one. Oh sure, there’s a woman. It was early 2006 and Jordan’s version of the American dream lay crumbled at his feet. “I bought us the house and planned on moving in and as soon as I did, she left,” Jordan says. It wasn’t actually as easy as that. No one wanted to buy Jordan’s house. The Gallardo is named for a famous Spanish bull.
