This Canadian-market 1992 Porsche 964 Carrera 2 Coupe was commissioned as a one-of-a-kind backdate restoration by Olsen Motorsports, at their Chicago creations and restorations facility immediately upon the previous owner’s acquisition in 2017. The chassis was completely stripped down to a tub, chemically stripped, and modified with a carbon-Kevlar roof, widened carbon fiber bodywork, and paired with a bespoke interior. Every single nut and bolt on this car was reconditioned and zinc plated where applicable. Upgraded Brembo brakes, JRZ suspension, and an in-house built 4.0-liter flat-six engine have been equipped by the Olsen team with help from LN Engineering. Previously sold on PCARMARKET, this true no-compromise backdate is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Tennessee, driven less than 3k miles since the restoration.

As part of the restoration, the chassis was disassembled and chemically stripped before the original drip rails and roof were removed in favor of a lightweight carbon-Kevlar panel. In the rear, the panels were widened by about 4” using carbon fiber fender flares mated seamlessly to an early 911-style carbon fiber rear bumper. The front fenders, hood, and front door sections were also replaced with backdated carbon-Kevlar panels. The trim was refinished in hand-brushed nickel including the window moldings, door handles, wipers, and horn grilles. Lighting is provided by 9Eleven Raven S LED headlamps with halo DRLs tied into the ignition circuit. One of the more unique additions is an external oil filler port on the rear quarter panel featuring a custom cap styled after an RS Spyder wheel lock. The car wears a one-off blend of metallic purple paint and rides on aftermarket 18” Fuchs wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. The seller adds that amber turn signals have been installed and removable Porsche scripts have been applied. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The cabin presents reupholstered custom black leather and Alcantara including the hand-brushed nickel trim carried from the exterior and diamond-stitching inlays on the seats and door panels. A full suite of custom instrumentation has been fitted in addition to a three-spoke carbon fiber MOMO steering wheel, Focal acoustic insulation, and a high-end sound system with Hertz Mille Pro speakers, JL Audio amplifiers, and a hidden 10” subwoofer. A Porsche Classic head unit (PCCM) controls this audiophile's sound system. This 911 also features a proximity key system that unlocks the car and turns on the halo DRLs as you come into its proximity and keyless push to start with a matching hand-brushed nickel button and trim plate.

The air-cooled 4.0-liter flat-six engine was built in-house by OlsenMotorsports featuring a hand-picked LN Engineering rotating assembly, coated pistons, Ninemeister heads, RS Eurospec camshafts, a custom dual exhaust, individual throttle bodies, and MoTeC engine management with a custom wiring harness. Driving the rear wheels is a completely reworked G50 transaxle with a "short stack" gear set ideal for twisty canyon roads or racing through the city. Other upgrades include a Brembo braking system and a custom-tuned JRZ coilover suspension. The seller reports all hardware was replaced under previous ownership with zinc cadmium-coated Porsche parts and that the oil and A/C lines have been integrated within the frame rails for a smooth appearance.

Diving deeper into this creation, the Olsen Team lives by the philosophy that all the components unseen are just as important as the ones visible on the exterior. Every nut, bolt, and assembly was vapor blasted and zinc cadmium coated. Any line that carried brake fluid, oil, or fuel was replaced with a brand-new genuine Porsche part or a quality custom handmade tig-welded steel line. To mitigate the effects of vibration-induced failures, Wiggins clamps were used throughout. Additionally, every bushing was replaced with sport hardness equivalents.
