A faithful tribute to the 1974 Carrera RSR 3.0 race car driven to victory at SCCA Trans-Am and IMSA GT championships by Peter Gregg, this Porsche 911 was built as a custom Brumos-approved reproduction by Bob Hindson Racing. It was completed in 1991 following 18 months of work at a cost of over $400k and wears the iconic #59 livery over a semi-tubular frame chassis. This 911 received a 3.0-liter twin-plug engine capable of producing up to 340 HP and was campaigned for a short time in historic races as corroborated by HSR and PCA logbooks. Having logged 0 hours since an engine rebuild by Kevin Wheeler Motorsports, this high-quality #59 Carrera RSR tribute was previously listed on PCARMARKET and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.
Beginning life as a standard 1971 Porsche 911 Coupe, this example received full Carrera RSR bodywork including lightweight fiberglass doors, vented fenders and quarter panels, bumpers, and an IROC whale tail spoiler. It comes finished in Grand Prix White with the traditional Brumos Racing livery Guards Red and Ford Blue. The rain gutters were removed from the roofline and brake cooling ducts were added along with new floor pans and rocker panels. A tube-frame structure was added from the front shock towers forward. It rides on a set of 10”x16” and 12”x16” wheels dressed in Hoosier racing tires.
The race-ready cockpit has been stripped, painted, and fitted with an integrated roll cage constructed from .090 and .065 D.O.M steel tubing. Features include a Sparco Evo Plus driver’s seat with Willans safety harness, a custom switch panel, a three-spoke steering wheel with Racepak G2X display, a racing shifter with a MOMO knob, and a fire suppression system with twin 5lb. extinguisher bottles.
The air-cooled 3.0-liter flat-six engine features twin-plug ignition, twin Holley fuel pumps, individual throttle bodies, an RSR fuel filter assembly, a 12-gallon ATL fuel cell, and free-flowing race exhaust. The engine is configured to run on two different tunes producing either 315 HP or 340 HP at the rear wheels. It was rebuilt in 2012 by Kevin Wheeler Motorsports including a new GT3 rod bearing set, Clewitt ignition wires, Aasco valve spring, CP piston rings, new OEM 95mm cylinders, and an updated 996 Turbo intermediate shaft as well as new gaskets, filters, and spark plugs. The car has logged 64.6 hours since completion and with 0 hours added since the time of the engine rebuild. The car weighs in at 1,946 lbs. and features a custom suspension with fabricated front A-arms and strut boxes, Smart Camber plates and rear camber boxes, reinforced 930 trailing arms, 935 spring plates, 934 valved Bilstein shocks, heim-joint toe adjusters, 930 axles and CV joints, and Weltmeister anti-roll bars. Stopping power is provided by a twin master cylinder system with adjustable bias and 930 brake calipers/rotors.
This sale will include some records, racing logbooks, and a clean title.

@hot-rods-to-hell The car currently holds a Florida title based on the original factory build. When the car was transformed to the replica, it was taken down to the bare chassis, therefore the components to keep the car street compliant were all either removed or modified. I honestly do not have the expertise to confidently say the car could be modified to be street legal. The obvious like headlights, indicators, wipers and washers could be added, however the state it ends up in would also be a factor in what it would require as to additional state inspections/emissions etc.
we have added a couple additional photos of the build from the extensive stack of history with the car.
@AutoquestMotorsports thank you. That is most helpful.

@JD458 in regards to the HP question. Great observation. The car has 2 tuning configurations that produce the following
*340FW hp with 300 wheel hp
*315FW hp with 281 wheel hp
Was the build based on a street legal porsche and as such, could it be modified for street use?
@AutoquestMotorsports CORRECTION - the car runs on race fuel - 102 to 104 octane
@gman71b hi. the car runs on 93 octane
Bid in the amount of $60,000
@JD458 Hi. Yes, the difference in power values is at the wheel versus at the crank.
We will try to find some more photos of the suspension from when it was originally built.
@JD458 My guess is Wheel HP (WHP) vs Crank HP (CHP). Dynos measure WHP and they probably estimated a reasonable 18% powertrain loss.
Bid in the amount of $50,000
@AutoquestMotorsports what a great car, thanks for posting this for sale. I am hoping that you can post a few more photos of the suspension as I am curious to see how this was built. I am also hoping you might be able to add more information about the engine. The description says 340 HP but the dyno shows only 280 HP, can you let me know why the difference (I am sure there is an obvious answer that I likely missed)? Thank you.
What octane is the car running?

This is really amazing build of an Iconic Porsche. Very good taste.
I came back to admire this car and realized I wrote it is "breathing" instead of "breathtaking"
It happens when you make a comment at 5am :)
@GT3forme the Bosch pumps were swapped out for HOLLEY fuel pumps and a photo has been uploaded of them. Thank you for pointing this out.

This is extremely impressive, to put it mildly. GLWTA!
You call out twin Bosch MFI pumps, but this engine has carburetors. Please explain.
I have seen this car in the flesh and it is breathing. And while the craftsmanship on this build will be tough to match, it is this particular car's documentation and history that cannot be replicated.
The PCA members' shop of choice in Southwest Florida (particularly if you track your Porsche) is also owned by good, honest people who go out of their way to keep their clients happy.
Buy with confidence.
