Up for auction is this newly built 1973 Porsche 911 RSR Tribute car painted in a vintage racing inspired Porsche “Hippie” livery. Based off of a standard 1973 911T, this Jon Gunderson-built RSR Tribute boasts a 3.5 L Rothsport MFI/EFI rated at 350 HP in addition to RSR suspension, 930 Turbo brakes and all-metal RSR body panels. Having been recently featured in the July 2020 edition of Top Gear Magazine, this no-expense spared Tribute is now being offered for auction by its seller California while showing only 2735 kilometers (1,700 miles) on the odometer.
This 1973 911T was completely stripped and fitted with handcrafted metal RSR bumpers as well as an aluminum center-fill hood and ducktail rear decklid. A hand drawn livery based off of the legendary Porsche 917 #3 “hippie” car was then created by renowned designer, Freeman Thomas, and custom painted on the car using high quality Glasurit paint. The body of this Tribute is said to be completely devoid of any fiberglass or decals. Other noteworthy features include all new glass, drilled door handles, all new front and rear turn signal housings and lenses, H4 headlights, an exterior oil filler and Braid wheels (9x15” front 11x15” rear) which are dressed in new Michelin TB 15 tires.
The interior has been completely redone with Alcantara upholstery, RSR style door panels, custom Recaro-type seats and a leather covered roll bar. Other details include custom gauges, Rennline pedals and floor boards, a Wevo short shifter and RSR-style steering wheel.
Power comes from a newly built Rothsport 3.5L MFI/EFI motor which is rated at approximately 350HP. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed Euro transmission with a separate oil cooler. Additional performance upgrades to this already impressive build include:
