BaT Auction: 383ci-Powered 1976 Porsche 911S Coupe

This 1976 Porsche 911S coupe was refurbished and modified during prior ownership. The exterior was refinished in Crystal Red Tintcoat, replacement seats were fitted in the refreshed black interior, and a fuel-injected Chevrolet 383ci V8 was installed and paired with its rebuilt Type 915 five-speed manual transaxle. Additional features include 18″ multi-piece BBS wheels, Bilstein dampers, 996-sourced brake components, Sparco harnesses, and a kevlar clutch disc as well as 964-style bumpers, lighting, and rocker extensions. Since acquiring the car in July 2020, the seller has changed the spark plugs, air filters, and engine oil. This 911S is now offered with service records dating back to 2013 and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.

The car was repainted in Crystal Red Tintcoat in 2015 and features tinted windows, blacked-out trim, a color-matched rear spoiler, a front splitter, and 964-style bumper covers, taillights, and side skirts. Both tail light lenses are cracked, and the seals on the doors, back windows, and sunroof are in need of replacement. Close-up photos of the paint and trim can be viewed in the gallery below.

A V8 conversion was first performed on the car in 2013 by Renegade Hybrids of Las Vegas, Nevada. The current 383ci Chevrolet V8 was subsequently installed in 2019 and is fitted with PBM aluminum cylinder heads, Mahle pistons, a PBM crankshaft, and a deep-sump oil pan as well as performance valvetrain components and a camshaft. Induction is handled by a FiTech electronic fuel-injection system, while cooling is provided by dual radiators with electric fans. The drive belts and transmission fluid were replaced in early 2020, while the spark plugs, air filters, and engine oil were changed in November 2020.
