1989 Porsche 911 Rothmans tribute – Click above for high-res image gallery

This 1989 Porsche 911 Rothmans tribute is the second such 953 rally car homage to come from this seller in less than a year. Last year, he reportedly sold a 1980 Porsche 911 Rothmans to the folks at GoPro for north of $70k. That car was nice, but was only two-wheel drive.

This year, he decided to go all out, and took a perfectly-maintained 1989 Porsche 911 C4 and turned it into a near-perfect representation of the 1984 Paris-Dakar-winning 953. Check out the listing on eBay Motors, where the car has yet to meet its reserve. Using a C4 as the base car means this tribute carries an all-Porsche all-wheel drive system, making this year's car even more desirable than last year's.

Best of all, the car looks the part, but retains its street legality and some crucial creature comforts to make it a useful means of transportation as well as a suitable weekend warrior. According to the eBay listing, the car retains ABS, cruise control, climate control, a sunroof, power locks, power mirrors, power windows, and a differential lock. See the car in action after the jump. Top tip, Chris M!

      They couldn't find a battery tie down? Or fix the rust next to the battery? What's with the screw in the roll cage behind the seats?

      Sorry to nit pick.... but.....

      I'd rock the heck out of this.

      How much for red 911 in the background? I'd rather have that.

      Would totally take this off-road Porsche any day over a Cayenne.

      And why does Cameron's dad have it?

        Good thing they got that window fixed.
      • 3 Years Ago
      i'm sure i'm in the minority here but personally I'd rather have this car as it was stock and unmolested
      • 3 Years Ago
      Is there any other modern day Porsche with AWD aside from the Cayenne?
        • 3 Years Ago
        Someone smack him.

        You're being sarcastic, right? Either that, or you're just on the wrong site.

        911 Carrera 4S
        911 Turbo and Turbo S
        Panamera 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S

        unfortunetely no sarcasm, sorry folks. I'm not too familiar with porsches at all.
        • 3 Years Ago
        959 anyone?

      What a crappy job. Would it have killed the guy to replace the disintegrating engine bay sound deadening pad? Or maybe a new ignition switch bezel seeing as the original one is dis-coloured and cracking?
      It's not like it's going for a cheap price...
