Imported into the United States from Germany in late 2020, this period racer is everything that she appears to bed. Don't dare call her a "backdate," as this simply is not one.

The origins of this car are as follows: a European-spec/delivered 1969 Porsche 911E non-sunroof Coupe in factory Light Ivory. In the following years after production, the vehicle underwent a radical change in the era. With the introduction of the RS and RSR 911's for the 1973 model year, racing teams were inclined to adopt changes so as to remain competitive. And with race teams having intimate knowledge of which new components and vehicle setups were being tested for success, they remained at the forefront of innovation track-tested improvements.

For the Swiss-based Heinz Schiller race team, a guinea pig was needed to test these theories and put pen to paper. Enter this car. Adopting an RSR setup meant converting the entire body to wide-spec; full steel fenders were grafted and built to spec in the era of the 55 RSR's made by Porsche. A factory delivered 2.7 liter RS engine was also initially installed during the course of this pedigree; a far cry from the 2.2 liter engine that would have been found in the car from the factory.

To adopt full RSR-spec, additional changes were needed: including rear seat removal, light weight carpet kit installation, full roll cage installation, race seat installation with racing harnesses, deletion of the clock, radio and glovebox; and a Bilstein racing suspension with RSR-only wheel and tire setup (9 inch wide Fuchs up front, and 11 inch wide Fuchs in the rear; Michelin TB15 rubber all around).

At some point in its lifetime, circa early 2000s, the car was fitted with additional changes such as 930 Turbo calipers and cross-drilled rotors, and the iconic 2.7 engine had been removed in favor of a late model 3.2 Carrera block, mated to a 915 five-speed transmission; the audio of which screams like a 917 through its non-silenced full race Dansk branded exhaust system.

During the course of its transformation in the early 1970's, the car was re-sprayed in its factory color; Light Ivory. Being the only time it was painted to accommodate the RSR transformation, this car has patina that can only be replicated with age. It is, without question, one of the most fantastic examples of a period racer; retaining the rest of its charm and style with the stainless surround trim and rear pop-out windows.
