1971 Porsche 911 on 2040-cars

1971 Porsche 911T Hotrod Targa
Originally I purchased this car with a vision to create a drivable work of art which I could enjoy and work on
over time. Roughly 11 years ago I sought out a clean original early 911t which needed a restoration, but would not
be hurt by modifying it from the original equipment. Part of my criteria was a clean little rust body, T model
targa in Viper Green, Light Yellow or Gulf Blue. This particular car is from California originally and had very
little to no rust at all and is light yellow. I purchased it as a running roller, meaning it had all the body
panels a motor/transmission, but little else. All of the original interior and trim were not present on the
vehicle when I acquired it. Since then I have rebuilt everything on the car except the long block engine. My goal
was to make a modern interpretation of an early 911 similar to a Singer which could be driven any time you turn
the key, and functioned like new.
The body of the car has been modified. All the external trim has been shaved, so all trim holes were welded shut
and shaved over. The rear fenders were flared with fiberglass RS replica flares. At the time I did the body work
steel RS flares were out of production and hard to acquire. Since then this has drastically changed and metal RS
flares are available again from Porsche and the aftermarket. All other panels on the car are original metal, but I
do have a fiberglass ductail I will include in the sale as well. Pictures of the car with and without the tail are
All of the turn signal lens have been replaced. The original headlights were backdated to 1967 911 lenses, but
with HID balasts and projectors. Unlike the original 911 headlights, these work and allow driving at night safely.
Not to mention they look a little better.

If you don't wish to know who won the 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona, you should avert your eyes right now. We'll even give you a double-space to skedaddle...
For those of you still with us, the first race in the United SportsCar Championship (USCC) is done, but the discussions about it certainly won't end for a while. Daytona Prototypes claimed the first four overall places, the top spot taken by the No. 5 Action Express Coyote-Chevrolet Corvette DP driven by Joao Barbosa, Christian Fittipaldi, Sebastien Bourdain and Burt Friselle. The 16th and final caution of the race bunched the field up for an eight-minute sprint to the flag, so the first place getter finished just 1.4 seconds ahead of the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Dallara-Chevrolet Corvette DP driven by Max Angelelli. Third place went to Brian Friselle in the No. 9 Action Express Chevrolet Corvette DP, 20 seconds down. Chevrolet power hasn't taken the overall win since 2003, eleven years later it scores a one-two-three-four. The No. 6 Muscle Milk/Pickett Racing ORECA-Nissan 03 scored fifth place, the top LMP2 finisher.
The Prototype Challenge class win went to the No. 54 CORE Autosport team of Colin Braun, Jon Bennett, Mark Wilkins and James Gue.
Porsche has amassed quite an impressive trophy case in just about every racing series it has ever entered, and one of its most dominant machines has to be the 911 RSR from the 1970s. Taking part in various GT-class competitions, the 911 RSR managed to take home three international and seven German victories in 1973, its very first year of competition.
Not one to downplay its racing successes, Porsche has released an informative video detailing the 911 RSR's impressive heritage. The 1973 RSR model owned by the Porsche Museum is detailed beautifully on video, and we have to say it looks absolutely stunning in its vintage Martini Racing livery.
Have a look at the video below for some historic racing action, along with static shots of one of our favorite Porsche models ever created.
Statements made by Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo may indicate that the Italian brand could return to a form of racing it's been absent from for 40 years - prototype racing. That's right, LMP1 could see a factory Ferrari team for the first time since 1973, if a report from ESPN F1 is to be believed.
"We have won with the 458 GTE, but I also quite like the idea of racing at Le Mans in the highest category: who knows, maybe one day we can return and win, say thanks and come home," Montezemolo said. "Maybe we should give it some consideration..."
These seemingly idle, off-hand comments might not hold much water, were rumors about Ferrari's return to prototype racing not swirling as recently as August. There's also the fact that the upcoming, 1.6-liter, turbocharged V6 being used for Formula One complies with the Automobile Club de l'Ouest's own LMP1 regulations, according to ESPN. Finally, Ferrari returning to Le Mans might also explain this video of a camouflaged Ferrari LaFerrari testing a new turbocharged engine, which we showed you a few weeks back. There's a fair chance that what we're actually seeing in that video are the early stages of a new Ferrari prototype testing.
