The Porsche 1972 911 ST is legendary in automotive history and coveted for its exceptional performance. Under the hood was a potent air-cooled 2.5-liter flat-six engine, delivering over 200 horsepower. Its lightweight construction, reinforced suspension, and modified components made it a force to be reckoned with on any road or track. Just the previous year in 1971, close to a dozen podium finishes were achieved at international events throughout Europe. Its iconic styling included smooth-arched fender flares not used on other 911 models. With a production that year of purportedly 23 units, owning an original is far beyond the reach of most 911 enthusiasts. But wait…
Enter RS Werks
What if you could own a “replica” with even better performance? The skilled craftsmen at RS Werks in Parkesburg, PA have you covered with their custom-built 911 ST offering. Hand-built using the finest materials and components, buyers can take a trip back in time to when Porsche was still a burgeoning manufacturer competing on limited resources against far bigger teams.
For this particular build, the team started with a 1972 911T chassis; this ST Tribute was an homage to the original Gemini Blue Metallic with Light Ivory accents ST #911 230 0044 that raced in the early ’70s. In keeping with the ST concept, we made the chassis as lightweight and strong as possible.
