Porsche 911R hot-rods, replicas and tributes
There are 7.1 billion people on planet Earth. And only 24 Porsche 911R’s. So there’s 0.00000000038 911R for each of us. That’s hardly even a fleck of paint. So if you want one of Porsche’s first 911 race cars all for yourself, the sensible thing to do is to stop dreaming about it and simply build one.
That is what hotrodders around the world have done for years. Even to such an extent that one of the best known and most elusive hotrod communities are named after Porsche’s iconic R-model. So let’s take a look at what Porche 911R replicas look like, shall we?
Not bad, eh? So how do you go about building one a Porsche 911R replica? Well, first of you need a donor car. Now you would think that getting hold of a short wheelbase 911 would be the way to go. But please stop right there and consider this: The 912. It’s lightweight, it’s available in large numbers and it is still quite undervalued. So it can be a perfect platform for building the Porsche 911R of your dreams.
This guy did it for less than $25,000. You can read all about it in Excellence Magazine’s online article.
So you got yourself a donor car. What now? Well, the net speaks very kindly about TRE Motorsports and their conversion kits. Head over there and before long you’re not a dreamer, you’re an owner.
