1970 Porsche 911T - Red/Orange

A Makellos Classics custom build and full restoration of the 1970 Porsche 911T in Orange/Red.

This car is proof that not all projects require a full restoration. This well-running 67,000 mile 911T (lovingly named “3 ball”) was originally brought in as a solid platform for a much larger transformation, however as soon as we drove it we realized that there’s no reason to fix what isn’t broke.

The motor and transmission were completely stock, yet in extremely nice condition. We decided to do a service on the factory 2.2 engine and open things up with a Billy Boat exhaust system. The transmission was shifting smoothly from the start, which turned even more buttery once we changed the transmission fluid.

To keep the car planted during spirited runs, the suspension was replaced for new Bilstein B6s with stiffer bushings and turbo tie rods. Hidden behind the new Group 4 Campagnolo 15x7 wheels were rebuilt brakes with Pagid orange pads for reliable shedding of speed. Lightweight RS carpet was installed along with a rear seat delete along with RS style door panels to keep things light and nimble. GTS Classics bucket seats with pepita inserts were installed to hold the driver firmly in their seat during those turn turns. Finishing off this build a vinyl livery was added to compliment the orange and gold tones prior to its road tour on Momo’s Road to Rennsport Reunion VI (gallery.)

A Makellos Classics Exclusive Build Project

A RECREATION OF PORSCHE’S MOST ICONIC SPORT CAR!

Offered here is a tribute one of the most historically significant road cars Porsche ever built – the 911 Carrera RS. This build started as a low-mileage, numbers matching 1973 911T and fitted with steel RS flares (butt welded), steel RS Touring rear bumper, steel 911S front bumper and a fiberglass ducktail. The Brumos-style race livery really pops against the crispness of the Grand Prix White paint.

The original 2.4L motor was rebuilt to 2.7L specifications including 90mm pistons, performance cams, ported/polished intake manifolds and Weber 40IDA carburetors with custom jetting. The factory 915 transmission was bolstered with a Quaife limited-slip differential, lightweight flywheel and factory short-shifter.

The interior has been refreshed in a lightweight but not barebones fashion; utilizing RS carpet and door panels to save weight and GTS Classics bucket seats to keep you firmly in place during those spirited runs. The double-wrapped 380mm steering wheel is comfortable and responsive while the Retrosound stereo allows you to connect your smart phone for long drives or hands-free phone calls.
