Wisconsin-based Porsche race and restoration shop Accumoto Motorsport is known for its detail-oriented 911 restorations. When it was asked to restore this car, the firm incorporated lessons from its extensive on-track experience, resulting in a 911 that honors one of Porsche’s most important race cars. To begin, a 1984 911 Carrera was stripped to its bare tub and the restoration commenced from the ground up. The engine was built as a tribute to the legendary 2.1 RSR Turbo, Porsche’s first turbocharged race car. Beginning with a magnesium case from a 1968 Porsche 911 engine, Accumoto used the same bore and stroke as Porsche’s original design and added twin K16 turbochargers. This engine was then used in one of Accumoto’s RSR race cars, which captured track records and overall wins at Sebring, Watkins Glen, and Road America.
With development complete, the engine was disassembled, completely refreshed, and installed in this car. After the work was completed in 2015, the consignor acquired the car for his collection.
This 911 features Porsche 930 brakes, a short-ratio G-50 transaxle with Guard differential, ride-height adjusters, and JRZ adjustable remote suspension dampeners. A GT2 RS-inspired racing roll cage surrounds a sumptuous Sebring Blue leather interior with Pasha-inspired inserts and Alcantara trim. The interior features custom LED footwell lighting, heated seats with adjustable lumbar support, and a discreet Bluetooth stereo. With over 360 rear-wheel hp available on high boost, this impressive 911 is a thoughtful homage to Porsche’s glorious racing past.
