Paul Stephens Reveals Le Mans Classic 911
Independent Porsche specialist Paul Stephens has revealed a limited edition Le Mans Classic Clubsport 911. Based on its own Clubsport model, the unique Porsche is priced at around £250,000 (dependant on final specification) and has been named in collaboration with Le Mans Classic event organiser, Peter Auto.
The restored and converted 911 features a `less-is-more’ ethos, it includes a lightweight de-seamed roof panel (with sunroof delete), lightweight composite bumpers and a matching engine cover, a lightweight aluminium bonnet, lightweight soundproofing and lightweight external door mirrors. Available in Touring or rawer Lightweight forms, just 10 of these hand-finished and numbered cars will be released. Delivery will take place at Le Mans Classic in 2020 where owners will be invited to parade their car and partake in a famous Le Mans-style start procedure.
At the new car’s heart is a 300hp 3.4-litre air-cooled flat-six engine, it features a new independent throttle body injection system with a GT3 RS-style plenum, a programmable ECU (mapped in-house), RS specification camshafts, a lightened and balanced crankshaft, lightweight con rods, and a lightweight flywheel. All that is mated to a Getrag G50 gearbox and a limited slip differential. Weighing 970kg in Lightweight specification (1,075kg in Clubsport guise) it can sprint from 0-60mph in 4.4-seconds before reaching a top speed of 175mph.
Inside ST-style touring seats are trimmed in black leather with unique Le Mans Classic houndstooth inserts in green, black and white. The trim is mirrored by fully trimmed and hand stitched leather interior panels, houndstooth door pockets with green boucle floor mats and aluminium footplates. Le Mans Classic green door pulls, seat belts and bespoke dials, and a luggage box mounted where the rear seats would traditionally be located are interior highlights. Each of the 10 cars comes with a specially commissioned Le Mans Classic luggage set.
