The SC/Carrera Program
With the introduction of the 911 SC (“Super Carrera”) in 1978, the Porsche 911 received a number of substantial upgrades from the previous G series (1974-77) models. Both the SC (1978-83) and the Carrera (1984-89) offer tremendous benefits when used as the foundation for custom 911 builds including:
Hot-dipped galvanized chassis
Reliable aluminum 3.0/3.2 liter engine cases
Factory hydraulic chain tensioners (1984-89)
Renowned G50 transmission (1987-89)
Larger “A-caliper” and ”Carrera” brake calipers
28-tube brass (1980-83) and finned (1984-89) oil coolers
Improved fuel/ignition control systems
Turn back the clock on your SC or Carrera – capture those classic lines of the early “longhood” 911s while retaining the modern creature comforts of the later models.
Fuel your passion in our rally-spec Safari - a no compromise build providing off road capability combined with the street performance you expect from a 911.
These builds make perfect use of classic hot rod sensibilities mixed with a handful of traditional Porsche touches to boost the original design of the Porsche 930 Turbo.
Retain the look and feel of your impact bumper 911 while enhancing power delivery and overall handling with the Street Performance build.
The Classic 911 Program
For those who seek period correctness with just a touch of modern comfort, we offer our Classic 911 Program.
Our Classic 911 Program build achieves a harmonious blend of contemporary technology, with original factory equipment, to retain the integrity of your vintage Porsche while adding substantially improved handling and modern conveniences.
At Makellos Classics, we utilize vehicles from the early longhood era (1964-1973) to recreate iconic models from Porsche distinguished race history including (but not limited to):
1973 911 Carrera RSR
1973 911 Carrera RS
1972 911 S/T
Also offered in the Classic 911 Program are full restorative services for vehicles of those who seek originality above all else. These projects are often high-value models and/or vehicles which hold a sentimental value. Restoration can vary from a 100 point concours-ready vehicle to a driver focused build.
