CapeSport 911…………the concept explained + cars for sale
The 911RS was a gamechanger, visually they are unmistakable. for 1973 the ‘narrow’ cars gained hips, a rear duck tail and unique front bumper.
The RS prototypes built in 1972 were far less obvious, they retained plain rear deck lids, standard S front bumpers and conventional bump strips for sill and bumpers. We were impressed that the uprated technical spec was married to the less obvious styling….a combination that inspired our CapeSport 911 concept.
Our objective was to create a stylish yet subtle car ideal for the daily commute and engaging for A roads blasts too. Cars that start conversations, discreet yet raising interest the closer the onlooker gets.
By any examination these cars are new, we source the best G series donor cars and subject them to a 100% ground up restoration and restyling. Every job is photographed and a hard-backed book is presented to each owner as a permanent record of their journey with us.
If this sounds like your perfect car our CapeSport 911 #1 is ready to drive away now. Our CapeSport #2 will be ready to drive early next year and whilst the colour is fixed the interior can be specified to your specific tastes.
