It is an awesome car, probably the epitome of an air cooled Porsche race car, but it just goes to show how technology marches on when a lowly 996 cup car can run 1:58's at the Glen.

Actually, the 996 has gone faster than that at the Glen...

Very cool car, but as non-factory, no history car I agree with others its priced too high.

And there is the rub. For someone who wants the ultimate air cooled car, there isn no better. What's that worth?

I have just purchased the car which will serve as a platform for my GT3R project. Thanks Mike for all your help, information, photos, input, advice, etc.

We'll use the Clash next week as a shake down for the car. Thanks to Jeff and the KM team who have prepped the car and turned everything really quickly.

Once we get comfortable with the car I'll finalize a plan for its evolution...

Just out of curiosity, what does a water pumper have to weigh to run GT3R?

Unless they have changed the rules - you can't run a water cooled motor in an aircooled tub without being kicked to GTPx class....but maybe things have changed.

Back when those cars were 1st built by KMR my wife Margo Pinkerton wrote an article about them for Pano.They were stunning back then and I'm sure they are the same today. The build quality was second to none!!

You don't have a copy of the article by any chance? Or remember which issue of Pano it was?

Excellence ran an article on KMR-RSR 002 in 2003. In the article, they go into the history of these cars to set the story up for 002's development. Kelly Moss only built 2 of the full-on KMR RSR 3.8 Lightweights, and 002 has been redeveloped with a 3.6 liter PMNA 996GT3R/RS engine so 001 is really one of a kind.
