Overview

This 911 is the real deal.

It is what most ‘backdated’ Porsche aspire to emulate.

Rather than a 911 built to resemble a 70’s ST racer, this one actually was a race car for a large period of its life, prepared to ST specification using all the right parts.

The original “ST” cars were born In the early 70’s, when Porsche worked on developing the latest version of the S into factory race car form. These could be purchased as whole, built cars, or simply as a kit to convert your own 911 S, but either way the 911 ST’s became some of the lightest and fastest early 911’s ever built. One such car was Gérard Larrousse’s ST, built for the 1970 Tour de France, which at 789 kg, remains possibly the lightest 911 to ever leave the factory.

Beginning life as a 1973 911 S, this Porsche was transformed to this specification in the early 90’s; running in the dark blue ‘Sunoco’ sponsor colours, it played a regular part in the American historic racing scene, battling with the Corvettes and Mustangs.

Recent renovations carried out here at Williams Crawford, enable it to be enjoyed on the road as well as the track.

Make no mistake, under its relatively unassuming aesthetics, it is still a race car at heart. It’s raw, lumpy, light, agile and fast. There is nothing inconspicuous about the way it gets up the road…..

Part of the ‘ST’ spec is a glorious, free-revving ‘short-stroke’ 2,454cc. Utilising ‘E’ crankcases, a counterweighted 66mm forged crank, 89mm cylinders and forged pistons, 906 spec cams assembled with “S” spec twin plug heads, along with a Bosch mechanical fuel injection system and much more.

Brakes are the ST spec adjustable six and four pot Bremtec callipers with competition pads. The suspension is tight; adjustable roll bars, race oriented geometry, plus it has a shorter ratio transmission.

Our refurbishments began with repainting to its original factory delivered Ivory white. Following the exterior, inside went oatmeal carpets and Pepita inserts in the bucket seats which disguise what it truly is; but a keen eye will spot the cut-off switch, the brake bias adjustment and the lightweight panels.

For convenience and comfort, the original race seats have been replaced, and inertia reel seat belts installed. Its rear wings have been widened to accommodate 11×15 inch rear wheels and the lightweight glass fibre doors and plastic windows are gone, with steel and glass reinstated. The latest-in-safety Heigo rear cage is both an indication of its history, and a (beneficial) reminder of its current capabilities.

This car featured in Octane magazine, where feedback from the driving experience is well documented.

What we can tell you is that it has real presence, real excitement and a real history.

Now all it needs is a driver to enjoy it.

With the values of the remaining factory built examples and factory supplied ‘ST kit’ cars built in period, stretching into 7 figures, this 911 offers a true taste of an iconic and rare, air cooled racer.
