Now available is this beautifully executed 1969 Porsche 911 “RS” tribute finished in Tangerine Orange over a custom reupholstered leather interior. Built to offer a visceral air-cooled driving experience, this RS-inspired tribute features a long list of performance upgrades including a newly built 2.7 L twin-plug flat-six engine. Having barely been driven since the installation of its new drivetrain, this custom built 911 is now being offered by its seller out of Illinois in excellent turn-key driving condition.
Prior to the current owner’s purchase, this 911 underwent a professional glass-out respray in Tangerine Orange. A fiberglass ducktail rear decklid has been added along with lightweight fiberglass bumpers, lightweight German-made Lexan rear quarter windows, steel fender flares and OEM factory-tinted Porsche glass. The door and window frames were also removed before being completely polished and clear coated. All new seals were installed at the time of the respray and the paint is said to remain in pristine condition (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). Matching Tangerine painted calipers are situated behind Braid Fuchs wheels which come dressed in brand-new tires.
Inside, the cabin has been fully reupholstered in leather with stitched dashboard and door panels and a custom Olson roll cage. Brand new $3k Italian-made leather seats were installed in addition to Tangerine seatbelts, a Wevo shifter and a fire extinguisher. A new quartz movement was installed in the clock and the seller notes that the radio, air conditioning and blower motor have been deleted. All other gauges and electrical components are stated to be fully functional.
Power comes from a newly rebuilt 2.7 L twin-plug flat-six engine which is mated to a 915 5-speed manual transmission. The engine features upgraded cams, a Carrera chain tensioner update and a front mounted oil cooler as well as upgraded headers and mufflers, a freshly rebuilt valve-train and new PMO carburetors. Other noteworthy upgrades include a 930-steering rack, 930 suspension, 930 brake calipers and cross drilled rotors.
The engine offers a claimed output of up to 270 HP and the seller confirms the car to be in exemplary driving order with barely any miles added since the completion of the build. The provided video details some of the incredible work performed as well as recent maintenance items including a full braking system refresh and wire routing.
The sale of this 911 will include 2 keys, build records and a spare dual exhaust system. This performance oriented RS-style build offers the perfect choice for any discerning vintage Porsche enthusiast.
