In April 2015 this right hand drive Porsche 911 2.0T took top honours on the Icelandic Saga in the hands of Daniel Gresley and Christian Prunte.
Later in the year it took a Bronze Medal and ninth overall on the arduous LeJog event with Dave Bryan and Tony Brooks. Dave was so impressed with the car he immediately started a hunt to find one to compete in!
This is a superb driving car, standing on original Fuchs rims and finished in Irish Green, short wheel base 911's are becoming incredibly rare in right hand drive form. A full roll cage and bucket seats with harnesses keep you safe, the dashboard and instruments keep their original form but the dash has been flock coated to reduce glare inside the car.
The 901 gearbox is easy to learn and soon becomes instinctive with a dog-leg first gear. One of our most popular vehicles - early booking is necessary.
The earliest editions of the 911 had a 130 PS (96 kW) flat-6 engine, in the "boxer" configuration like the 356, air-cooled and rear-mounted, displaced 1991 cc compared with the 356's four-cylinder, 1600 cc unit.
The car had four seats although the rear seats are very small, and the car is usually called a 2+2 rather than a four-seater (the 356 was also a 2+2). It was mated to a five-speed manual "Type 901" transmission.
The styling was largely by Ferdinand "Butzi" Porsche, son of Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche. Erwin Komenda, the leader of the Porsche car body construction department, was also involved in the design. The 356 came to the end of its production life in 1965, but there was still a market for a 4-cylinder car, particularly in the USA.
The Porsche 912, introduced the same year, served as a direct replacement. It used the 356's 4-cylinder, 1600 cc, 90 hp (67 kW) engine but wore the 911 bodywork.
