Sporting one of the most distinctive shapes in motor racing, and a set of silverware from motorsport’s great races to match, Porsche’s 911 RSR is a dream car.

This 1988 Porsche 911 RSR Recreation, up for sale with our friends at Classic Throttle Shop, will let you live the dream without subjecting yourself to the nightmarish price tag.



Inspired by the #8 911 RSR that raced in the 1973 Targa Florio, this recreation is the result of meticulous sourcing and research, attention to detail and very fine craftsmanship.

Starting with a mint condition 1988 911 3.2 Carrera, the car was painstakingly reconstructed over 16 months by ZAG Automotive in Sydney. The goal was to build a nuanced and driveable machine that was as close to that #8 car as possible in looks and excitement behind the wheel.



Hanging over the back wheels is a 993 Varioram motor with a custom exhaust and muffler, and high flow catalytic converters. It puts power through the mighty 911 G50 transmission to a factory LSD, and 930 Turbo brakes with brake booster handle and balance the stopping power.

The handling package is completed by front struts with raised spindles and Bilstein shocks. Light coil over springs were added to the original torsion bars front and rear, which they did on the original RSRs to make the car easier to tune for specific races.



Metal RSR guards, RSR bumpers front and back, fibreglass ducktail, custom Fuchs wheels, refurbished and backdated instrumentation as well as period-perfect Martini stripes and period decals give the car its exceptional good looks.

With its perfect period aesthetic, exceptional attention to detail and all of the right shiny bits under the skin, this is a car we could spend many happy hours in, both on the road and on the track.

It’s up for sale at Classic Throttle Shop. For more information give them a call on (02) 9922 2036, send an email to
