The Story

This Porsche 911t was a 2.5 year complete nut and bolt build to make it quite possibly the fastest and best handling long hood Porsche in existence that still looks like a classic 1972 Porsche Long Hood (on the exterior). This Porsche 911 named Finley is a Porsche RS model inspired build. It has new modern parts from late model Porsche GT3, 996 Twin Turbo and Porsche 930. The goal was to keep the narrow body but build a 911 that was blazingly fast and confidence inspiring.

Starting with the model year, a 1972 Porsche 911 is rare for two reasons.

  1. It’s the highly desirable long hood model which was only built between 1969 and 1973.
  2. 1972 was the only year Porsche put an external oil filler cap on the passenger side which makes it very desirable and brings a premium price.

There are several builders backdating late model Porsches to look like an early model Long Hood model. The goal of this build was to take an original 1972 Porsche 911 Long Hood and forward date the engine, transmission and suspension to a late model Porsche and keep the original classic look that everyone is trying to achieve. I think Finley achieved this goal!

Finley the 1972 911 was placed on the dynamometer and turned 180mph at 8,000rpm…redline is 10,000 rpm. This Leaf Green 1972 Porsche 911 is known as a “Sleeper” since the horsepower, acceleration and handling is that of a race car but can be driven to the grocery story or on a long trip.

This 1972 Porsche 911 was dipped for paint removal 2.5 years ago and the build started piece by piece with countless hours of securing the best builders, parts and choosing an exterior color and interior design that would ensure it would be a one of a kind design that remains classic The exterior color is Porsche Leaf Green which is a rare color and a color you have to see in person since it’s beautiful, unique and rare. People stop and look when Finley drives by and they are always sure to give a thumbs up. When stopped people go out of their way to ask questions and ask if they can take pictures…it draws a crowd.

The seats and door panels are cognac brown smooth and braided weave leather. The headliner is cappuccino light tan perforated leather and was all supplied from Spinneybeck Leather. The custom made carpet is 100% wool German Squareweave. The custom made seats were designed to hold the driver and passenger as they carve the canyons and are not only unique but very comfortable. The windows are power and the shifter is a WEVO so it ensures precise gear changes of the newly built and modified 915 5 speed manual transmission. Total labor and material cost for the interior was $34,411.

The engine was designed for canyon carving at speed and city driving so you can unleash your hooligan side at will and be civilized when going out to dinner. The engine and transmission was professionally built by Supertec Performance in California for a cost of $80,469.00 and the specs are extensive.
