A perfect vision

I guess most 911 addicts have their own vision of what the “perfect / dream” 911 is. For most that would be the latest flavor currently available (nowadays, the 991), others won’t stray far from the early/ longhood “sect”.

Me, I would take the middle ground. My favourite shape is clearly the RSR of 74 and I would stick with an aircooled engine of no more than 3 litres, atmospheric of course. To this I would add some modern refinements / upgrades to make life a bit easier, and the possibility of using it as a daily driver more feasible.

This, within reasonable bounds. Multi-kids school runs are best left to minivans and such. Frequent long distance trips are better for a good diesel option, but… you get the drift.

With this in mind, I put together a simple list of requirements and added a few RSR photos to make for a more interesting reading…
