This 911 is about as evocative as classic racers get; a no expense spared full FiA build by Dutch 2.0l Cup specialists Duel Motorsports. Originally a US delivered road car this example still retains it’s original body shell and colour that has since been restored quite beautifully. A great deal of love and care has been invested, with particular focus and consideration to race preparation and development, whilst in true Touring spirit retains a suitable balance for the road. As such, the car is as pretty in the flesh as the studio photography suggests with superb panel fit and finish.
The livery has been applied with stickers so is easily removable or changed however the former owners cherished Bulldog motif in our eyes adds character and a good nickname for this superb race car.
Considering the broad operating bracket of such an example, the cabin has been sympathetically updated with safety in mind but pleasingly retains its character and originality where possible – dials, switch gear and controls remain untouched finished with a proper period 4 spoke wheel.
The MSA Historic Passport dictates the safety enhancements inside, equipped with a full FiA Zero 360 extinguisher system and Lifeline pull switches.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The epic Solex fed 2.0l engine is the beating heart of this classic 911 – creating that incredible Boxer aural symphony.
Drivetrain has been modified to ensure pedal box, clutch and ratios are all perfectly matched for fast road and circuit driving. Finally, an LSD ensures maximum efficiency and adjustability.
Hours are extremely low given the car has covered nominal mileage since construction. It has never raced and had just one shake down.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Iconic Fuchs wheels present in immaculate condition – a symbolic option amongst classic Porsche variants.
The entire braking system has been replaced and upgraded where possible whilst suspension hardware has had similar attention; everything has been removed, stripped, inspected, cleaned and powder coated to as new condition. All parts are in accordance with FiA Appendix K legibility.
Chassis 303208 was of the final run of pre-66 2.0l SWB cars produced for the US market; delivered in it’s original Black colour to Hobart McAlister of Beverly Hills by Competition Motors of Culver City, CA.
Imported into the Netherlands in 2010, the car was chosen by esteemed Porsche specialists – Duel Motorsport – as an ideal candidate for a full rebuild to FIA race specification. Duel and marque guru Ed Poland are amongst the leading 911 development and race preparation business in Europe; responsible for building the Red 911 2.0l that has since become one of the most famous on the planet thanks to Pascal Pandelaar’s heroics at the wheel around Spa.
With current HTP Appendix K and all relevant accreditation, over £250k was spent on creating this historic masterpiece (photos available) that has only completed one shakedown since build in 2017.
A wonderful Porsche 911 that is ready to be raced and is eligible for the most prestigious historic racing events and series across Europe including the Porsche 2.0 Litre cup, Le Mans Classic, Goodwood Revival, Peter Auto as well as the infamous Tour Auto and Modena Cento Ore.
