1975 Porsche 911 Carrera R-Gruppe VIN: 9115400273 Two owners, same owner for 38 years No-expense-spared 3-year build completed by Kelly Moss Road and Race in 2015 Rothsport Racing-prepared 993 Varioram engine with 315 horsepower Magnesium-case 915 transmission rebuilt and upgraded by Brian Copans Original Porsche color Cockney Brown Custom leather interior by Autobahn Interiors 5-time concours-award winner This 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera R-Gruppe in Cockney Brown is the result of a vision and some of the best Porsche builders and restorers. In 2015 Kelly Moss Road and Racing completed the excellent restoration and custom mechanical work, while Rothsport Racing worked over its upgraded 993 engine for a stout 315 horsepower. With all of its original sheet metal painted in its original color of Cockney Brown with a custom leather interior by Autobahn Interiors, this 38-year owned 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera is the perfect fly-under-the-radar Porsche outlaw. History This 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera began its life as a stock 911 Carrera in Cockney Brown. First owned by a flight attendant, she would keep the car stock and drive it for a couple of years before selling it to its most recent owner who would keep the car for 38 years. When he moved from Nashville, TN to Texas in 2012, he decided that he wanted to build a long-awaited dream: an IROC tribute 911. However, due to the values of the air-cooled 911s at the time and not wanting to devalue the car or engine, he decided instead to send the car to the very capable Kelly Moss Road and Race in 2012. Exterior The Cockney Brown 911 was immediately disassembled down to every last piece of hardware to begin the restoration. The 2.7-liter engine was removed from the car and placed to the side, which is included with the car. Once the car was devoid of all its parts, all of its paint was removed down to bare metal, confirming that the car had zero rust and no damage whatsoever. This allowed Kelly Moss to keep all of the original sheet metal. The entire car was prepped for paint, prepared to be painted in its original color Cockney Brown. The front and rear bumpers are a custom composite, with the front having a custom center mount oil cooler. A custom composite ducktail engine cover was installed. All aluminum trim was re-anodized black, new sunroof trim cables and wind deflectors were added along with all of the sunroof felt. All new glass, new rubber trim, Porsche H1 headlights and trim rings were added, and new Porsche taillights were added with a new center reflector. The result is an exterior that is subtle to the untrained eye, but to the right enthusiast will see all the extra touches that make this 911 Carrera special. Engine Rothsport Racing was chosen for the engine build but instead of using the 2.7-liter engine, a 993 engine with Varioram was used for greater horsepower and torque. Built and massaged, the 993 engine now produces 315 horsepower, more than 80% more power than stock. Rothsport added their ECU and custom stainless-steel exhaust headers to the 993 engine and sent it back to Kelly Moss. A factory GT3 Cup titanium muffler was added. Kelly Moss installed a custom air intake, a new oil tank with a new oil level and temperature sensor, WEVO engine mounts, custom engine compartment, exhaust and oil line heat shielding, a custom wiring harness, and a Bosch motorsports fuel pump. Altogether, the raw performance of Rothsports engine paired with Kelly Mosss supporting upgrades provide enough power to keep you pushed back in your seat constantly. Transmission Brian Copans, a well-known Porsche transmission builder, was asked to provide his skillset to this build. He started by rebuilding a magnesium-case 915 transmission, but added in a few hidden tricks. Porsche GT gears were added for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear, a Quaife limited slip differential, and a host of WEVO parts: a bearing plate retainer, int
