Not exactly what you asked for, but it may help you to visualize:





964 decklid on an early car, flared wide.

My GOD.......I have always loved your car! I like it just like that, nothing to take away from those great curves.

Default Wider is better!

Jack,

Is it wider than a factory TL? If so, can you share details?

Thanks!

PiL, go do a search for BBII here or on Pelican. You should find plenty of info on his car. No, its essentially the TL before the TL existed its an RSR.

Yeah, in short, it's a 1972 911T with an RSR-style body kit, improved suspension, 930 brakes, and a 3.6 from a 964. I run 9.5x11x17 2-piece Fuchs wheels on it, usually with a ducktail.



And to keep the thread on topic, here are a couple of no-tail 930's.

Hi everyone, I am venturing over from the 928 forum. I remember seeing a 911 widebody with no spoiler when I was a kid on vacation in California(late 80s, early 90s). I thought it was one of the coolest cars I had ever seen. Buying the 928 brought back memories of this 911.

I have been doing a little research and they seem to be extremely rare. I found this thread and love That black car. It is exactly what I remembe a a kid. Did they make an 930s without the spoiler from the factory? Or was it only a widebody non turbo option?

Thanks. Seven years later, I'm still driving the same car.

Markmandude, the factory's Special Wishes department would do anything a customer asked, so long as their check cleared and the laws of physics were followed. But the problem with putting a turbo under a stock decklid was that there is no room for the Porsche intercooler. Some people have fit an intercooler under a ducktail (like the one you see in my avatar picture), and some people have reconfigured smaller intercoolers to fit under a stock decklid. But I don't believe the factory ever did that.

This is a 930 with a custom duck tail to accommodate the cooler (http://forums.pelicanparts.com/911-9...ml#post6270873). Looks sweet. It's jimtweet's car on Pelican.

Thanks for the info guys. Jack, everytime I see pictures of that car I can't help staring at it for about 5 minutes. It is exactly what I would want if I ever get a 911!
