Needs Must !!.... All part of the Evolution and elevated appeal that the Brand bestows upon it's customers. The progress in the early Days set the Benchmark for what we have to-day and who knows without the low production numbers in some models the 911 might have disapeared by now.

It;s no different to what we see now where they are running various Prototypes and Production runs to compete in Nurburgring Lap Records, Le-Mans etc,

I wish i had half a dozen sat in a garage !

Pity I thought that there might have been a few more comments on this subject.. I guess most of the air cooled guys are elsewhere... (-:

C4Silver, thanks for sharing your thinking, much appreciated. I have to admit to ever valuing originality, and kinda looking at customisation as being some form of artistic expression oft times with less than sound engineering principles applied, given I was occasionally juggling spanners even before the kit car scene hit the UK with Ferrari look alikes and beach buggies with VW Beetle underpinnings... It seems we have come a very long way since then..

It is great that there have ever been folk who value one marque or other very highly and can dedicate a great deal of time and energy into bringing old cars back from the dead and saving them from being scrapped, I have done some of that myself, though the resto-mod thing is built on a whole different set of ideals that works well for me in terms of "acceptable customisation," when the reality of many old air cooled Porsches is that they are corroding quietly under the paintwork and it seems that Rennsport may well be extending the lifespan of Porsches that might have otherwise become very corroded. It seems Rennsport are creating very interesting and attractive cars to DRIVE that may fit better with modern-day expectations and still retaining a fair degree of the all important originality in aspects of 80`s 911...?

It seems the Morgan Motor Company may have looked at the ideals behind the resto-mod marketplace and taken their NEW cars in a similar direction while holding on to the obvious heritage of the marque, which seems a more difficult option given their NEW cars are required to comply with current regulations unlike the real resto-mods, thinking air bags and so much more that can really complicate build processes, if interested you might like to beam this up..?


BTW C4Silver, just one of those Rennsport RSR`s in my garage would be MORE than enough pleasure for the likes of me.... thumbsup Smile
