This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo “Lil Hot Stuff” Is The Culmination Of 1970s Excess @ Top Speed



The one-off air-cooled Porsche 911 is inspired by the 1957 comic book fictional character “Hot Stuff, the Little Devil”. What started life as a 1979 Porsche 930 3.3 Turbo was reimagined by 9 Auto Motion and, in addition to being finished in the famous, f*ck subtlety, Guards red, it’s also inspired by the 1974 Porsche 911 IROC RSR, of which Pablo Escobar himself had one. This means that the “Lil Hot Stuff” now has a very 911-like ducktail, under which nests a big intercooler.

The 911 also features wider and more pronounced wheel arches with air inlets behind the doors, as well as RSR-style front and rear bumpers, and new lightweight wheels for the complete RSR look. The Guards Red exterior is completed with updated LED headlights by NineEleven and round taillights by Laurenteile.

The car was reportedly built from the ground up and everything has either been refurbished or completely replaced. The black and red lightweight interior features quilted leather, a custom Momo steering wheel, and Recaro bucket seats with FIA four-point racing harnesses. In addition, there’s also a modern air conditioner with a Griffith 3 condenser.

The 3.3-liter twin-spark flat-six features a programmable ignition coil on the plug system and makes in excess of 600 horsepower.

There’s also a tastefully made, bespoke turbo back, dual-tip exhaust, and absolutely no effort to muffle the soundtrack of the turbocharged unit, which also happens to produce epic flames out the back just in case someone decides to get too close to you.

Do you think it justifies the $599,000 price tag?

Driveline-wise, the car features a four-speed Porsche manual gearbox with a limited-slip differential, Bilstein coil-over suspension, upgraded brakes, as well as a new brake booster, master cylinder, and brake lines. The rear wheels are a beefy 335mm width, which should be enough to cope with the serious power from the engine.

The “Lil Hot Stuff” 911 Turbo started life as a 930 Turbo – the car everyone called “The Widowmaker” – and judging by the listing and what’s been done to it, it has evolved into the Devil. Whether it’s better than the 993 Turbo – the actual ultimate air-cooled 911 – is up for debate, but there’s no denying that this modified 1979 one-off Porsche 911 is one serious piece of machinery.
