Porsche 911 Turbo S Leichtbau: new unit version Lightweight for sale


180 kilos less, and 61 horses.

in the early nineties Porsche was not in a good moment financially speaking, however, managed to bring to market some of the versions are more sought after today by collectors. If the other day you were showing a 911 Carrera 3.8 RSR brand new, that (had not even been touched since it was delivered, today we find one of the 911 Turbo S Leichtbau, or Lightweight.

These versions were presented at the beginning of the nineties and proved to be a step beyond that versions Turbo conventional. These lost about 180 pounds thanks to new aluminum doors, panes of lesser thickness, rear spoiler and front hood in kevlar, door panels, flat style racing, and even a few rugs finest.

The engine received considerable internal improvements, raising its power until the 386 HP (381 hp), 61 horses more than the original model, so the performance of this limited edition was quite superior to that of the 911 Turbo that I could find in the dealers at that time.


The interior has a curious combination of colours.

This issue of the color black is the number 51 of about 86 copies Lightweight manufactured (officially it was only 81), and goes on sale in the next event at Silverstone Auctions with estimates that yield between 475.000 and 575.000 Pounds sterling, of 608.000 to 736.000 dollars. The specimen has been used for quite some time and has already accumulated 68.868 km.

The exemplary features an interior quite carefully, but also very curious, so combines the leather upholstery with two shades of pink and violet, both the sports seats Recaro as the steering wheel itself. Strange combination but that at least shows a good general condition.

One of the curiosities of this special edition is the first
a prototype was manufactured and introduced in 1992, but as they came in
production until July of that year, by the system of models of Porsche
copies of production were born as models 1993.
