Head to the track on any given weekend and you’re likely to see a handful of Porsche 911s of various vintages racing against one another. But the iconic German sports car has also been known to rally off-road, like this one that’s now up for auction.
Restored by Job’s Classic in the Dutch town of Dalfsen, the tail-happy Elfen comes powered by a 2.2-liter flat six with a pair of double Solex carbs to produce 130 horsepower. It rides on a set of black 15-inch Fuchs-style alloys shod with Toyo tires, with ventilated front disc brakes, a hydraulic hand brake, and a fully rebuilt gearbox, with auxiliary lights to illuminate whatever surface it’s traveling on at speed.
Inside you’ll find a pair of bucket seats upholstered in black leather with Gulf blue stitching, a Momo steering wheel, and all the telematics equipment you’ll need to measure your trap times.
The car is currently situated in the Netherlands and registered in Germany. With 56,000 miles on the clock, it’s clearly been driven a lot, and likely driven hard, but is described as being in good condition.
Like what you see? It’s currently up for auction on Catawiki, with a high bid (as we go to press) of $37,377. The auction site’s experts figure it’s worth a good $130-160k, though, so this could be your chance to get a steal on a stylish and proven rally machine.
