Porsche Of The Day: 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo RSR-Style Backdate
This 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo underwent a custom Carrera RSR-style restoration with backdated bodywork including a classic long-hood nose section, wide steel fenders, RSR-style bumpers, and a ducktail rear spoiler. Other features include chrome door handles and headlight rings, anodized silver window moldings, a polished driver’s side mirror, dual exhaust tailpipes, and 15” Braid Fuchs wheels measuring 9” wide in front and 11” wide in the rear.
The cabin is lined with classic grey square weave carpeting and features black Alcantara upholstery with green stitching covering the dashboard, door panels, and roll bar. The driver and passenger are situated in black leather sport bucket seats with pepita houndstooth centers. Accessories include a wooden 917-style shift knob, an Alcantara-wrapped MOMO Prototipo steering wheel, lightweight door panels, power windows, an electric sunroof, and a quartz clock.
This 930 is equipped with a custom Richard Chamberlain-built 3.25-liter flat-six engine featuring JE pistons, Mahle cylinders, Carrillo rods, RSR rocker arms, a 996 GT3 crankshaft, Schrick Central Lubrication 320-degree camshafts, MoTeC electronic fuel injection, stainless-steel headers, and AT Power shaftless individual throttle bodies. A dyno-verified output of 316 BHP is sent to the rear wheels through a rebuilt close-ratio G50 5-speed manual gearbox which was sourced from a 964.
