Here is an opportunity to own a one off spectacular Porsche GT1 tribute car which is a terror on the track and a true attention getter. This well-known racer was featured in Excellence magazine (December, 1998), and was invited as one of the premier cars in the 2021 American Speed Festival held at M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan.

The Porsche 993 GT-R1 Tribute is a vintage race car that is FULLY SORTED AND READY FOR the TRACK! It was custom engineered in 1997 with a full tube 1.5” dia. X .120 wall DOM chassis and roll cage fabricated in California. The car is based on a modified Porsche 914 tub with a fiberglass Porsche GT1 inspired body by Randy Beck, with original build cost exceeding $175,000.

This “Frankenporsche” is one of a kind, with a single center seat position, the 914 tub and a mid-engine layout. Components include a high powered Porsche 993 twin plug engine with a Steve Wong custom ECU tune chip, a Hewland DG300 5 speed transmission has dog-ring gear selection, making it extremely quick shifting., 993 front & rear suspension assemblies with mono-ball spherical bearings, specially engineered front & rear anti roll bars. The vehicle weighs only 1790 pounds. It has a 15 gallon fuel capacity, is 37” high x 82” wide, and includes 16” BBS wheels x (11.5 front and 14” rear) with 11” racing slicks (front, 14” rear).

Original log books include entries in the 90’s running at Sears Point, Second Creek, Thunderhill, Willow Springs, Laguna Seca, California Festival of Speed, Las Vegas, Buttonwillow. In 2021/2022 after an extensive refurbishment with updates and improvements by the current owner, the car ran local tracks at Gingerman, Grattan, Waterford Hills, Pitt Race, Nelson Ledges and M1 Concourse American Speed Festival.

The sale includes brand new set of Hoosier slicks 2-23.5 x 11 x 16 and 2-25.5 x 14 x 16 (2022), brand new Pagid and Hawk front and rear brake pads, 4 brand new brake rotors, various gearsets to change transmission ratios. Also included are a set of tall boy wheels and tires for long distance trailer hauling. Provenance includes an extensive library of photos, specs, component build documents and invoices, service logs and a feature article from Excellence Magazine (Dec 1998) that details the complete build.

The car will be sold on a bill of sale. A 2002 – 22 foot fully equipped enclosed car trailer is also available at extra cost $25,000.
