Waiting for daylight

Ok I have looked enough at this thread to give me incentive to post a picture of my 1973 911 RSR. It is a dedicated race car that weighs 1,950 lbs. Although not a true RSR, it does have some interesting parts and pieces. The car was never undercoated and still has the original headliner. It would be great to know the history through all the years because it has been raced for a while. It was imported from Canada and has stickers from Mont-Tremblant from early 90's.

Wow, looks too clean to be a race car! Even the wheel wells are clean.

Damn nice!

Thanks,
Yeah, that picture was taken a few years ago after a lot work and detailing done. Although it does get a lot of attention after an event still.



PS Arena red / black my favorite color combo! and a 993. Definitely a keeper.

That's a keeper!

Looking at an '07 version of one of these right now:



What are it's foibles/achilles heels?

I've read maintenance can be a hassle due to limited access, and that it is also cursed with IMS failures.

Excellent condition with a 5-speed, PSM, S-spec wheels. 14,100 mi. $31,950 takes it.

Any insight from you Porschephiles?

IMS issues are plaguing a lot of models . Be diligent about checking the oil filter for debris during every change .

They are very nice cars. If you are spending that kind of coin -

Get a PPI before you buy from a good indy mechanic near you (ask/join PCA locals). Negotiate w/ indy that you are going to have them replace the IMS bearing w/ the LN aftermarket one as soon as you buy the car and never worry about it again. With a new clutch and RMS this should cost around $2k. Just bite the bullet and do it.

I have an '01 Boxster that's been great and I enjoy the hell out of if every time I drive it.

Nice to see another racecar!!.. Do you run it in HSR or PCA? Ferry Porsche once commented at a concours on what a depressing event it was since none of the cars were racing....

I'm thinking I'll try & work an IMS update & seal change into the purchase deal. I can't imagine it would need a clutch at 14K.

Thanks for the info, guys.

Some of both and some NASA but have had to back off due to kids in college and crappy economy. Hoping to do some events this year and get my son behind the wheel. I have a feeling he will pick it up quick.

I know what you mean about a concour event. No noise!

I'm not an expert on the M96 engine, but my understanding is that the ceramic bearing in the LN Engineering kit is a wear item, good for 40 or 50,000 miles.

Nice, I used to work for Skip Barber and I instruct for PCA and Audi Club. It's a great thing to do with your son. My Dad and I do all our track time together and he is now 79, quality time for sure


I'll be running my car at Watkins Glen, Limerock, VIR and Summit Point hopefully this year, pending on tire budget!

Cheers, James

I read that also when I was researching 996's.
