Guide price: £85000 - £95000. Built by Rennsport as an 'Homage' to the famous 911S driven by Steve McQueen in the film Le MansThis 911S Rennsport Evolution is based on a 1982 'G-Series' 3.0-litre SCStripped back to a bare shell before being built up with new suspension, brakes and interiorEngine 'blueprinted' and fully rebuilt. Only 3,278 miles sinceNaturally finished in the correct shade of Slate GreyVery comfortable 'backdated' interior in Harris Tweed Despite the fact that Steve McQueen's 1971 film 'Le Mans' is full of drama, disaster and despair, it's most commonly remembered for the opening sequence with McQueen quietly making his way through Northern France in his 1970 'D' Series 911S. The Slate Grey car looks entirely at home on a misty early morning as the Porsche gently negotiates the sweeping, tree-lined curves of the D35 between Brulon and Cheville with no soundtrack apart from a little Michael Legrand flute music and an occasional 'gruffle' from the flat-six.I guess there must be lots of people who have thought from time to time of replicating that trip and, whilst the D35 has changed little, the values of early 911s have moved on quite considerably. For many years the '73 and '74 RS have enjoyed a similar tariff to a row of terrace houses in Bradford and the 2.2 and 2.4-litre 911S have been catching up quickly with even the 'E' and 'T' becoming a carefully considered purchase. And then there is the rebuild and a couple of coats of Slate Grey. What was to be done?The answer was to take a much later car, a mid-eighties Carrera 3.0 or a 964, clothe it in those lovely sweeping curves of the pre-impact bumper cars, 'backdate' a number of features and update those creature comforts and safety features that can't be seen from the outside. A sort of bespoke early seventies 911 that goes, stops, and steers and has a little socket for your MP3 player.That's exactly what Rennsport of Moreton in Marsh has achieved here with their '911S Rennsport Evolution' based on a 1982 'G-Series' 3.0-litre SC. The bodyshell was stripped back to bare metal, before the necessary modifications were made to ensure it looked like a ‘71/’72 model and everything fabricated in steel, save for the composite bumpers front and rear. We understand that the engine was ‘blueprinted’ and fully rebuilt at this time to ensure it was running at peak performance before being re-installed back into the freshly prepared shell. Bilstein suspension was fitted along with modified brakes, SSi manifolds and a Le Mans stainless steel silencer.  It was built with touring in mind and although the interior has been 'backdated' it is in no way spartan with really comfortable reclining front seats covered in an attractive 'Houndstooth' Harris tweed with matching rears.Now showing 3,278 miles on the odometer which we understand is the distance covered since being built, this car is supplied with a UK V5c and a copy of the book, The Rennsport Story, in which this car features.This is not a replica of McQueen's 1970 911S but is a special car in its own right, perhaps what the 911S would have become if it had developed over the years. Sympathetic, not sycophantic.The D35 awaits. 'Faites de beaux reves' (Sweet Dreams).
