RETRO CLASSICS will be held at Stuttgart this year from 13th to 15th of March. With over 100.000 m2 display area, it is the most important Exhibition of its type to be staged in Europe. The White 1982 Porsche 911 exhibited by Cargraphic at the RETRO CLASSICS.

Exhibition this year is the first Porsche Thomas & Michael Schnarr (the founders of Cargraphic) purchased.

The car was bought in 1985 second hand and started life as a 911 “G Type” 3.0Ltr with a power out put of 204 HP. Now even by today’s modern standards the car is quick with a power output of 285 HP and a weight of only 1050 kilos it will reach a top speed in access of 285 km/h.

Some of the modifications include a Cargraphic mass flow sensor kit from a 3.6Ltr motor, a G50 gearbox, a programmed control unit with a RUF-CTR oil cooler system, a special Bilstein suspension setup with Cargraphic turbo sport torsion bars. Also to add to the car’s driving dynamics a sway bar kit, three part strut brace and stronger suspension bushes have been added. For Thomas the suspension setup is equally as important as the power output for a quick car and to achieve fast lap times.

The twin Cup manifolds and GT exhaust system are of course from Cargraphic’s own exhaust company based in the UK. The front and rear spoilers were from RUF Automotive who back in 1985 were probably one of the most innovative designers around.

8½” and 10” x 18” Cargraphic racing wheels are fitted, the wheels like the exhaust system are designed and manufactured at Cargraphic’s own wheel factory. The Cargraphic Philosophy is that the more products that are manufactured “in house” the more you have the ultimate control over quality, design, development and production.

The White 911 is no longer owned by Thomas & Michael Schnarr and has been kindly lent for the show by the new owner, who is an old Landau school friend which means they can still enjoy the car.

To complement the 911 on the RETRO CLASSICS stand are a Porsche 993 Cup car from Dirk Müller, winner of the Carrera Cup in 1998 and a Porsche 993 Cup car, attending the 2009 Porsche Classic Car Trophy and owned by Kurt Ecke of RDM Racing a long standing and very close friend of the Schnarr brothers.

If you are unfortunate to miss the RETRO CLASSICS show the cars can be seen again at the TECHNO CLASSICA ESSEN from April 1st to April 5th. More information: Cargraphic
