This one, a rare right hand drive Porsche 356 pre-a in need of total restoration was offered to us last year however the sellers expectations were very different from ours & on this occasion we were unable to strike a deal.

2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS leaked

February 6, 2018

Ready for another argument about a Motorsport Porsche? Here are your first details…

Well, embargoes me damned, here it is. Supposedly meant to remain under wraps until later this month, with a full Geneva reveal on the cards, the latest iteration of 911 GT3 RS has broken cover ahead of time. In official press shots, posted and subsequently removed – but not before half the world took note – on Australian motoring site Drive, the Lizard Green Porsche can be seen playing in its favourite terrarium.

As far as details go, the new car will have a redline of 9,000rpm and 20hp more than its predecessor, taking the total output from its naturally aspirated 4.0-litre engine to 520hp and dropping the 0-62 time by a tenth to 3.2 seconds.

Power is still sent to the wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK gearbox, with no suggestion that a manual option will be offered. The rear-wheel steering system has been recalibrated, though, and a series of aerodynamic and styling upgrades have been implemented. These include a redesigned front bumper with larger side intakes, two new NACA style ducts in the bonnet, and additional air channeling at the rear, where new wing and bumper designs can also be seen.

Inside, carbon-backed racing seats, lightweight door panels and reduced sound-proofing keep unnecessary heft to a minimum; in addition and, as has become custom for Porsche’s GT models, the new GT3 RS will be available with an optional Clubsport package comprised of an aluminum roll cage, fire extinguishers and six-point belts.

angle2EINE REISE NACH SCHOTTLANDPorsche 356 A Bj. 1959 - sehr guter Zustand, für Rennen aufgebaut!Anzeige gefunden, sofort in das Auto verliebt - Anbieter Border Reivers?? Wo- Schottland?? Also, einen Flug gebucht nach Edinburgh und kurzer Hand auf die Insel geflogen.Ganz idyllisch ein Stück hinter Glasgow an einem See gelegen hat sich die Firma "Border Reivers" versteckt und auf hochwertige Autos spezialisiert.Der Inhaber - Tom Fitzsimmons ist mehr als freundlich uns hilfsbereit und versucht seinen Kunden fast jeden Wunsch von den Augen abzulesen, hat uns spät nachts noch zum Essen ausgeführt und kurz vor Mitternacht nach zurück nach Glasgow gefahren. Wir konnten in einer blitzsauberen Halle das Objekt der Begierde in aller Ruhe inspizieren (und alle anderen Auto's auch noch) und durften danach eine Probefahrt durch die Highlands absolvieren.Sämtliche Sonderwünsche und Umbauten wurden durch Border Reivers noch erledigt und gegen Entgelt wurde der Wagen noch bis vor die Haustüre in Deutschland geliefert. Ein wirklich perfekter und freundlicher Service der nicht selbstverständlich ist.Many thanks Tom, it was great to make business with you!Thomas Eder aus Bayern Thomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring(Translated below)A TRIP TO SCOTLAND to veiw a 1959 Porsche 356A - Very good condition, built for racing!  As per the add, I fell in love with the car which was offered by Border Reivers, So a flight booked flown to  Scotland. Quite a bit away from idyllic Glasgow situated on a lake,is where the company "Border Reivers" hides and specializes in high quality cars. The owner - Tom Fitzsimmons is more than friendly to us and very helpful. Caters to his customers every whim. He gave us late night run to Glasgow for a meat, shortly before midnight after back after it. We were in a spotless showroom, full of the objects of desire. He gave us peace to inspect and allowed us to undergo a test drive through the highlands afterwards. We agreed the purchase and some special requests and modifications to be carried out which were done by Border Reivers. We paid for the car and it was delivered to our doorstep in Munich, Germany in a covered transporter. A truly perfect and friendly service which is not self-evident. Many thanks Tom, it was great to do business with you!ThomasEder aus BayernThomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring
