Take a look at this very nice 1971 Porsche 911 ST racecar. On the racetrack this is a very agile and competitive car, ready to take on its competition. The photo is taken at the Falkenberg Classics, Sweden’s own little Goodwood Festival of speed.

This car is homage to the very famous Porsche 911 ST, a very rare car. According to Scuderia Falkenberg who owns the car Porsche only built 20 of these fantastic cars and this one is painted in Porsches own pastel blue.

The engine is built by the Swedish Porsche legend Bo Strandell and has been tuned to perfection. And it sounded and worked perfectly under the race. It has the nice original Fuchs wheels and Michelin tires.

Compared to the original Porsche 911, the 911 ST was put on a nasty diet. Thinner gauge steel was used and customers could spec the car with Plexiglas windows and aluminum doors, making it very light. In the back you would find a wonderful 2.3 liter flat six with a triple-choke Weber carburetor delivering 230 horsepower. Not bad considering that the lightest cars only weighed in at just 840 kilos.

The car was also available with a larger 2,5 liter engine, with 270 bhp. Swedish rally legend Björn Waldegård drove a 2,5 liter 911 ST in several rally’s and won the Swedish Rally in 1968. He also won The Monte Carlo Rally in both 1969 and 1970. Very impressive, and with 270 horsepower on just 840 kilos the car is pure dynamite.
