(RareCarMarket.com) – In 1969, the legendary manufacturer Porsche did something it had never done before when it introduced its 911S. While Porsche models are a favorite among car enthusiasts, the 911S is often prized because it was created with mechanical injection. Given the age of these coupes, it can be hard to find one in pristine condition. But that just leads to people making something new out of them.
Porsche manufactured the 911S with a rear-mounted engine giving instantaneous and direct power to the rear wheels. The car’s naturally aspirated 2.2L engine featured a single overhead camshaft with six cylinders, each with two valves to produce 178 horsepower and was paired with a five-speed manual transmission. While not much compared to modern-day Porsches, the 911S had an astounding top speed of 143 mph.
The video above shows a Porsche 911S brought back to life in a unique way. The mechanic decided to drop the original racing style, aiming for something more subtle. Not everyone agrees with this decision, but the time and dedication put into the project are admirable. From simply replacing rusty spots to completing major modifications to the bodywork, the transformation is impressive.
While he doesn’t finish the car in the video, the footage shows how far the Porche aficionado got in a year; grinding, welding, sanding, fabricating, and modifying parts to ensure they fit correctly. If you want to see more on this build, check out the Rennch website.
