race ready porsche 911This beauty came to us in need of a roll cage and fuel cell mount for weekend racing. The ’71 911 E, with its self-supporting bodywork, front independent suspension on transverse links and damper struts, longitudinal torsion bars, rear independent suspension on lateral links and transverse torsion bars, make it a classic choice for weekend SCCA racers across the country.

‘”They’ve got faster, all three of them”, promised an English Porsche brochure showing the 911 models (911 S, 911 T and 911E of 1970). In fact a capacity increase from two to 2.2 litres had increased the performance of the engines in the 911 T, E and S models, but the torque gain was predominantly responsible for increased thrust at the lower speeds.’ -Porsche.com

We installed a custom roll cage and fuel cell mounts and brackets, but not prior to removing the interior dash and seats to make sure they stayed clean while we enhanced the 911’s safety features. Scroll down for more photos of the project, and see even more on our main site, Domination Chassis.
