Although I now own 2 911's I've yet to drive either. I'm in the process of building a '73 2.8RSR tribute car from the 73/74 coupe. I'm told that nothing comes close to 911 steering so I cant wait to get it on the road.

The first 2 pictures are inspiration of how the car will look and the last is how it is now.

Hope it looks closer to your 1st pic there not keen on the 2nd one. I am a huge fan of the earlier 911's.

I've owned quite a few early 911 and 912s over the years and a nicely set up early 912 (not 76 reissue model) with pair of Webers/Dellortos and minor engine tweaks gives it similar power to the 911T and is great fun to drive. 2 less cylinders means less weight in the back and better handling. Have much more confidence to push hard when road gets twisty. With those early 911s you always have that little doubt in your mind when pushing hard into corners.

When new in 72 even a 911T bottom of the range Porsche would still outperform a standard 240Z from same year. 0-60 half a second quicker, standing quarter - a second quicker.
Was in really good condition to be honest but I wasn't driving lol just didn't seem as nice an experience as the Z and I'm not being biased in any way. Based on your comment I think I need to experience some more old 911's

Every car needs tweaking IMO and I wont be running the standard 2.7 either. Mine will probably end up as a 3.4 with ITB's
