1971 911ST

From 1970 to 1972, Porsche homologated 500 of its 911S in the GT Group 3 and Group 4 classes. The serial number for this one is 4xx of the series. It was built in 1971 and has the outside fender oil fill inlet characteristic of the 1972 model year 911. It was raced in Germany then purchased by a couple of American servicemen, brought back to the U.S. and raced here then became part of a collection in the North West and was idle for many years before being purchased by Dr. Bruce O'Neal.

Bruce Anderson has written about the 911ST.
