Description

Left hand drive Touring specification180,000 restoration by Porsche specialists, GantspeedMatching numbers with original engine and gearboxPorsche Certificate of Authenticity and full historyConcours conditionRealistically priced to sell todayThe iconic 911 that put Porsche firmly on the map back in 1973. Available at the time in Touring spec or Lightweight spec it was the definitive Porsche with a flexible 2.7-litre, 210bhpengine, close-ratio 5-speed gearbox, lighter body panels and supportive racing-style seats.Only 1580 were ever made worldwide and they have been the most sought after and collectable road-going Porsches of all time.This car is a left-hand drive Touring model supplied new to Germany in Light Yellowwith black upholstery, as it is today, and has been with our private vendor for the last 6 years. During its life, like most RSin their early days, it has travelled around the world ~ including several years in Hong Kong.Back in 2007/2008 as Robert Gant was firmly establishing Gantspeed as one of the premier Porsche Specialists in the UK, he took this car to make it his signature restoration project and thus left no stone unturned in the 2 years plus restoration of the car which included absolutely everything.This work was all fully documented and photographed with over 500 pictures on file. The total invoices add up to in excessof 180,000 in total spend and the car has covered very few Kmsince then.The car was finished to such a high standard, both mechanically and cosmetically, that it was used by Gantspeed to promote their business for several years and was their car of choice in all their national advertising for many years after the work was completed.Our vendor has used it occasionally but most of the time it sits in his bespoke luxury garage amid several other amazing 911s, including the low mileage 996 GT3 RS and 993 RS also offered in this Sale, being correctly stored and used only when the sun shines.Like all his cars though, it has been professionally maintained and annually serviced.This original matching numbers car is offered with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and one of the most comprehensive history files we have ever seen.1973 Porsche 911 2.7 RS Touringhttps://youtu.be/NiObSM9CIAsfalse
