Porsche Classic Restores Rare 911 2.5 S/T to Immaculate Condition

Stunning.

With the classic-car market as lucrative as ever, many manufacturers are offering restoration services for classic and noteworthy cars, for quite the princely sum from the owner of the car. Porsche is one of the biggest names in this classic restoration business, and just revealed a sumptuously restored Porsche 911 2.5 S/T from the early 1970s.

The 911 S/T was based on the contemporary Porsche 911 2.4 S, and essentially served as the predecessor for the modern Porsche RSR  race cars. The S/T was a competition-ready coupe created for privateer racers who wanted a Porsche to compete in the Group 3 and Group 4 series in the early 1970s.

This particular S/T was used extensively in races around the world, including the Daytona Six Hours, Sebring 12 Hours, Targa Florio, and the Nurbugring 1000 KM. This 911's most significant achievement came in 1972, when it took the class win at Le Mans, and claimed an impressive 13th-place overall finish.

According to Porsche, the S/T was discovered in the U.S. by a collector, and brought to Porsche in the derelict condition pictured above. Over the years, the 911 had a rough go of things, with an unprofessional repair job made to remedy collision damage, unoriginal paint, and extensive rust.

Under the loving care of Porsche, the 911 2.5 S/T has a new lease on life, finished in the original yellow competition paint. There's no word on how much the project cost, but we're betting it's an eye-watering sum. To decide whether it's worth it, take a look at the immaculate Porsche 911 2.5 S/T in the gallery below.
