For this restoration, the Porsche experts at Wisconsin-based Accumoto Motorsport applied their extensive on-track experience to create an exhilarating classic 911 that features many high-end performance upgrades. The work, completed in 2013, retains the clean lines of the early 911 but focuses on enhanced sound, feel, and overall driving experience.

The restorers began by stripping a 1972 911 E to its bare shell. The car was then finished in the period color of Tangerine, accented by a 911 S front bumper, RS-style hood and decklid straps, and NOS Cibie auxiliary lights. Bilstein struts, a strut brace, adjustable suspension mounts, and Smart Racing sway bars increase the car’s handling capability. Leather seats with tartan inserts, a WEVO shifter, and an Italia wood steering wheel enhance the car’s ergonomics to further elevate the driving experience.

The engine is a 2.7-liter unit with increased bore, resulting in a 2.9-liter capacity. It features 9.5-to-1 Mahle pistons, and liners with Andial S camshafts. Intake ports and throttle bodies were increased to 36 mm, and the injection pump was rebuilt to RS specs. PMO MFI velocity stacks provide an intoxicating induction noise. The 915 transaxle runs custom gear ratios and the car is fitted with a lightweight Sachs Power Clutch and Aasco flywheel. These efforts wonderfully sharpen the classic 911 experience into a balanced package that calls to mind Porsche’s great racing heritage.
