This car should not be confused with modern recreations. LFL 493L is a very rare, a full spec, period, facsimile of the genuine and legendary lightweight 73 911 2.7 RS racing machine having been built to homologated RS specification for racing in the 1990s Pirelli Porsche Classic Championship. It is itself a piece of racing history.

The story behind the 1973 2.7 Carrera RS model doesnt need repeating and no one will need reminding of the almost stratospheric values now being achieved for the 1,580 M471 and M472 factory examples. While the rarity and iconic status given to this model has led to a whole industry of imitations generally they only have the the appearance of the 73 RS they being commonly based on backdating the long bonnet G program (and later) chassis engines and running gear from the same era 3.0 and 3.2 litre models.

This car is very different and unique in todays market, it is completely correct to period in every mechanical aspect. It was built on a period E program 72/3 shell with the V5 confirming a declared manufacture date of 1973. It is fitted with a genuine and very rare 2.7 RS engine featuring 7R magnesium crankcase and MFI. All running components, suspension steering etc are also original and are to RS homologated specification including 18mm and 19mm anti roll bars and stiffer torsion bars.

In 1995 the car was purchased by racing driver, Charles Shaw, from Steve Foster of 47 Porsche in Manchester. Having been built as a 911T (9112501329) its understood that the car was imported to the UK from Germany in 1982 and was subsequently converted to right hand drive and to its current specification with components from a damaged original 73 RS. Of course, times change and now that would be unthinkable, but at the time it was not unusual given respective values of early Porsches were incredibly only around 1% of what they are today. Charles successfully campaigned the car for a number of seasons in the 2.7 RS class of Pirelli Porsche Classic Championship. During this time it was run and maintained by both Parr and Paragon motorsport, well known Porsche specialists. The engine was maintained and rebuilt by Lancaster Porsche official dealers in Cambridge. Charles then sold the car to in May 2000 to Jonathan Tipping better known as Fly a motorsport photographer who then used it as his daily road car.

I purchased it in April 2012 and it was immediately sent to Porsche restoration specialists RS911, where a full ground up and bare metal restoration was carried out. The extensive work cost in excess of 50,000 and included new steel rear arches, sills and floor pans and gearbox. The engine was tested, serviced and given a light cleaning to ensure all the original detailing is retained including original engine cover paint. The engine shows good compression, runs as it should and does not require rebuilding. The body colour was changed and the car is now presented in resplendent Gulf Blue with black decals as was a factory colour option for the original 73 RS and in homage to the legendary Le Mans Gulf Porches of the early 70s. The quality of the restoration is exceptional so that while the car looks almost new it retains a patina that can only come with age. The car returned from its restoration in November 2014, since then it has been kept in an air conditioned classic car storage facility and has only done approximately 350 miles. The car is taxed (0 as it is an historic vehicle) and MOTd.

There are many 73 911 RS lookalikes, replicas, recreations, evocations out there but rarely does a car in this specification - as close as youll get to the definitive factory article come to market. That rarity is likely to be assured, given the escalation of values of all the pre-74 911 models today, it would be simply uneconomic to build such a car today.

Im advised that the due to the car being absolutely correct to period specification then a FIA Historic Technical Passport could be obtained which would quality the car for historic racing or rallying. Equally it would suit a collector.

Viewing is essential and by appointment only.
