Description: The car is a 1977 Porsche 911S coupe in Talbot yellow, custom ordered without a sunroof which was originally a California car that made it's way out to the east coast only recently when I bought it from a fellow Porsche collector. The car originally had a 2.7 liter engine which has been swapped to a 3.2 liter engine from a 1986 Porsche 911. The car has also been tastefully lightened with RS door panels and RS carpeting throughout. To keep the larger motor cool, a Carrera oil cooler with scoop and a period correct ducktail has been installed. The 915 transmission has been kept original with the small addition of a Seine gated shifting system. The car has been lowered beyond stock specifications while retaining the same (but new) Bilstein HD shocks and struts that came with the car originally. The headlights have been updated to The Retrofit Source HID headlights with custom Porschecrest lenses. The exhaust is a Fabspeed with a custom made tip to be period correct. I've spent a large amount of time making this car as period correct as can be, while also adding in my own character and lightening it where it's makes sense, and making the engine and motor components as strong and reliable as possible.
