1978 Porsche 911 RSR-OUTLAW

Up for auction is this 1978 911 RSR Tribute, built by Passion Driven Restoration Specialists in New Castle, DE. This extremely high-caliber build is finished in Olympic Blue and is the clear choice for those who seek an unmatched, visceral experience with 21st century performance. Built from the ground up, the seller emphasized that no expense was spared when creating this incredible machine, giving it the fit and finish of a world-class automobile.

Starting with a structurally solid 1978 SC donor, a steel wide-body and long-hood backdate were performed. Photographic documentation of the donor car (pre-build) and the build process are shown in the gallery photos.

Upon entering the cockpit, you will immediately notice the attention to detail that was put into building this RSR. A Prototipo custom leather steering wheel and custom gauges with exterior color-matched speedometer can be found in site. Some other noteworthy features include Leather RS door panels, German square weave carpet, Alcantara headliner, 1973-style dash fascia with basket weave leather insert, Restored 1973-style gauges, factory Porsche classic radio w/ bluetooth connectivity and GPS navigation, Complete JL Audio sound and a Complete heat and AC system.

    @akellerdrew the attention to detail is what's always blown me away with this particular build. I know how hard the builder obsessed over the smallest of details.

  • akellerdrew 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Dipper17 agree. the attention to detail on this car is a whole other level. this builder has a product that is just going to increase and increase in demand. outlaws really have a wide quality range and this is by far on the highest end of the spectrum!

    I had a chance to see this car while at Amelia island this spring, it was a show stopper and might be my the best car I've seen on either coast. Good luck with the auction guys.

    @rheaumesammy Thank you so much!

  • rheaumesammy 1 week, 5 daysago

    seen a lot of outlaws in the porsche world and its hard to find one with the same build quality as this. this is clearly built in the type of clean environment like a McClaren would be assembled in. Even if its not because thats just the vibe I get. respect.

    I have seen this car in the flesh on several occasions. I was at Passion Driven when they started planning the build. I was there when the SC first rolled into the shop. There is not a single detail that was not considered, there is not a single system on this car that is not done to the highest standard. Every time I see this car I am blown away. The devil is in the details with any of these builds. He's in there on this one.
