911 RSR Style
Based on an F model from 1971, something very special has been created here. This is no “fair-weather friend” for the well-to-do Leopoldstraße in Munich, and also not really for collectors’ garages, or for “original paint obsessives”. Not that there is anything wrong with either of these, but this 911 RSR clone is more Metallica than Coldplay. It soars effortlessly up the gears, and irrepressibly seeks out grip and even more speed.
Attributes which Hans Joachim Stuck & Co took for granted are dying out today. Modern vehicles with 3 turbochargers are marginalising them, mathematically – and mercilessly. But good old delight in driving, the smile when you take back control of a rogue tailpiece, winning the respect of your wild, Jekyll and Hyde machine… are features which no longer exist today. Such a car should be pure, sometimes rather shrill, but always honest and authentic.
In 2004, the renowned Patutschnik company completely rebuilt this 911 on the chassis of a 1971 911 F. This realised a dream for fans of the air-cooled legend. A 3.6 litre engine from a 964, combined with a 915 close-ratio transmission, power this flyweight (just 980 kg total weight). After its then owner had only driven the car for 1000 km, he stored it in a garage, then sold it 9 years later to the most recent owner. They loved the car, and invested many thousand euros in its technical care and maintenance of its quality.
This Porsche 911 RSR Clone is an absolute joy, as authentic as few cars can be. A car does not have to have every number correctly stamped in order to communicate the pure essence of driving.
