Thread: Evolution of 911330113 Continues

  1. #1

    Evolution of 9113300113 Continues

    This car has been owned by several RGruppe and board members since new:
    George McRoberts (San Clemente, CA & Business partner of Barry McWilliams): New - August 1998
    Jeff Kline (Vintage race car driver, Topanga, CA): August 1998-June 2000
    Niccolo Roveda(Santa Monica, CA): June 2000-May 2004
    John Audette(Bend, OR): May 2004-October 2006
    Leon Kreger(Pebble Beach, CA): October 2006-present

    After buying the car in '06, I enjoyed driving it as it had evolved in the hands of these enthusiasts. About a year ago, I decided to add my own contribution to the car's evolution. This phase of 9113300113 life should be completed around Thanksgiving.

    Magnificent, Leon and Rob..................simply magnificent.

    I feel your comments about the chain of ownership are particularly poignant. It's not often that our little community of early Porsche enthusiasts is treated to such a crystal clear demonstration of the truth and wisdom of the old adage which states that we're all merely stewards of these timeless machines during our period of ownership.

    It's obvious your time with #0113 has been extremely well spent. The discipline, restraint & impeccable taste demonstrated in the restoration of this car are to be commended.

    Congratulations, and thanks for posting.

    Factory delete engine lid emblems

    Thank you for the compliment, John.
    One of the interesting features of this car...the factory did not install the usual Porsche and 911S emblems on the engine compartment lid. The Certifcate of Authenticity lists this and several other racing related items such as "racing oil cooler", "limited slip differential", "2.5 fender extensions", 7 inch wheels all around, sports seats, etc.

    Hi Leon,

    Looks like one of "my" RS/RSR thick grip wheels and the only one (other than the one on my '67) with an extended hub that I've sold. Looks very nice if I do say so myself!Thanks!

    Oh, and I see you brought this unique S back to its original Tangerine. Nice!
