Now available for auction is this custom 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera G50 RSR-style backdate. Purchased as a completely stock example in Venezuela by its current owner in 2012, this 911 has undergone a multi-year restoration including a full engine rebuild, a custom RS-style interior, and extensive performance upgrades including a custom M&K exhaust, an Elephant Racing/Bilstein suspension, and Brembo GT “Big Red” front brakes. Retaining its desirable G50 5-speed manual gearbox, this 911 was eventually imported to the U.S. in 2019 where it has been carefully maintained and sparingly driven by its owner in Florida. Having recently been treated to a full oil-system service and cryo-detailing treatment, this one-of-a-kind 911 is now being offered with less than 4k miles driven on the rebuilt motor.
Before being refinished in White, this Carrera was fitted with a fiberglass GT Racing body conversion consisting of a ducktail rear decklid, a front spoiler, and a long hood as well as RSR-style fenders and bumpers. The front trunk pan is said to have been replaced during this time along with the front windshield and all rubber seals. Other exterior modifications include Vitaloni California mirrors, removable Porsche side graphics, black headlight bezels, and 17” Fuchs-style Euromeister wheels (8” and 10”) with orange painted faces and polished lips. New Hankook Ventus V12 front tires were recently installed, and the finish is said to be in very nice condition with a professional paint correction carried out along with a Ceramic Pro coating. The seller notes some minor imperfections on the front hood.
Inside, the cabin has been completely redone with RS-style door panels, lightweight carpeting, a custom orange-painted roll bar, and bespoke perforated leather Recaro-style seats created by Stephan Schloessing of Classic Car Seats in Austin, TX. Other features include a Kenwood Bluetooth-compatible stereo system, a MOMO Prototipo steering wheel, a 906-type shift knob, Coco floormats, LED dashboard lights, and Rennline aluminum accessories. The air conditioning system was completely overhauled by RennAir with a Canden compressor, serpentine evaporator, Pro cooler drier/receiver, lightweight barrier hoses, and a Desert Duty compressor. A new headliner and sun visor have been installed and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be working properly aside from the heater which has been removed.
The air-cooled 3.2 L flat-six engine is said to have been completely rebuilt in 2016 with less than 4k miles driven since. It has been upgraded with a custom M&K stainless steel exhaust with headers, a Steve Wong performance chip, a B&B aluminum front oil cooler, and a performance air intake. The rear wheels are driven through a desirable G50 5-speed maul gearbox. The underbody recently received a cryo-detailing treatment, the oil system was completely refreshed, and this 911 is said to be in fantastic driving order with a modern-style fuse panel recently installed.
