In the classic era of the sports car, particularly the interwar and immediate
postwar years, a make-do-and-mend spirit often forged connections between
racing cars and their production counterparts. The British “garagiste” formula

Porsche and Ferrari to “bet big” and commit to production runs of out-and-out
race cars simply to meet the minimum-build requirements. But big beasts of this

These require careful assessment by somebody who has experience with the
911. The same applies to blisters anywhere on the exterior. It is also easy for the
unscrupulous to conceal such corrosion with filler and a quick repaint. The
911SC and Carrera 3.2 represent the best options in the late-classic era 911s.
From the start of the 1978 model year, the 911SC has the more reliable Turbo-
based 930 engine. Being air-cooled, the engine oil plays a part in cooling as well
as lubricating.

Even Porsche were entering the party with capacity increases that saw the
classic 9¡¡ flat six grow from 2.0 to 2.7 liters by ¡973. Reality was about to interrupt
the speed dream. Escalating insurance costs and the first gas crunch of late ¡973
teamed up to burst the bubble. Suddenly your personal escape pod had
morphed from a 460-cubic-inch T-bird into a ¡974 Cologne 2.8V6-motivated
Mustang II Mach ¡. Well, at least real duals were still available! The era of the

There was that awful feeling of déjà vu,just like in the early 1970s when a
glorious era came to an abrupt end, and few could envisage what the future held.
The Group C cars had provided the same sort of excitement as the classic sports-
racers of the 1960s for a new generation of race fans, but there was nothing in
the pipeline that could even remotely be promoted as a suitable alternative.
Having announced it was doomed, some last-minute negotiations saw to it that

Porsche's sporting life can be divided roughly into four periods. There were the
early days, the 1950s, with the 356- based cars. This was followed by the
roadable, Carrera- engined machines. In the 1960s the mid-engined sports/
racers slowly began to dominate the non-single-seater scene, culminating in the
917s. The 1970s can only be classified as the (Fuhrmann Philosophy) 911/9 30
era. The first recorded win by a Porsche was on 1 1 July 1948, when Herbert
