The Porsche 911 is a motoring icon of the first degree and the 911 is surely on every car-nut’s bucket list — its iconic
shape, raspy exhaust note and bare-bones performance are exemplary. Prices for normal 70s 911s have been on a steady incline for years, but the 911 turbo market did a massive spike about a year ago, with basket cases that idiots left aging in barns tripling in “value” basically overnight. If you can’t afford the massive buy in for a turbo, why not pickup a nicely modified S with a hopped up motor and get the performance without the bills? Find this 1977 Porsche 911S 3.0 IROC tribute Hot Rod currently bidding on eBay for $22,100 reserve-not-met with $35,500 buy-it-now in Mission Hills, CA. Seller submission from oprah85 on eBay.
This 911 wears a really cool, almost military (think Navy fighter jet) paint scheme and a serious set of Kim Kardashian sized rear wheel arches. The wheels aren’t some over sized chrome pieces, they are 70s Centerline rims with Pirelli P7 tires and they look perfect on the car.
Out back is a 3.0 liter twin plug Porsche flat-6 that should be good for something around 230 horsepower while making the mechanical thrashing sounds that only the 911 engine can make and still sound good. If the racket that comes from a 911 engine starting emanating from your Ford Focus engine bay, you’d take it to a service shop stat.
The restoration/motorsportization isn’t just skin deep, this thing also sports a cool and upgraded interior. Thankfully the builder hasn’t added a head-bashing roll cage or anything else that would tip this car from street to track.
