Testing the water a bit but my 91 V spec might be available as another car has come up for sale
1991 BRG V spec with a full 6 point Nickson Motorsport cage fitted, dropped floors (both sides) ... the rest of the spec is variable!
The shell is solid, not been welded and doesn't need to be. It would come with all the body panels ... doors, bonnet & boot, wings and both bumpers. The cage is a full weld in cage, custom made to be pretty much the ultimate, useable track day cage. It cost £1600 to fit. It's designed to allow the fitment of a hard top, and with the dropped floors you're about 4 inches lower than standard so you're miles clear of the cage. The floors have been dropped to be in line with the bottom of the chassis rails ... so the bottom of the car is the same height as normal, it's just a different shape! That cost £1200 to have done. At the moment, it's a rolling shell with a Torsen diff fitted but no engine, box or interior This is where you have options... it could come as a rolling shell, with or without the diff. I have a full Blink stage 2 1.8 engine / Jenvey setup with the ecu and wiring loom ready to drop in. That's fully set up at 185bhp. I have some 1.8 brakes (EBC discs and pads), a gearbox, spec 2 clutch, pair of Bride bucket seats, Ohlins shocks, all sorts.
I'd want £2,000 as a rolling shell, £2,200 with the Torsen I'd want £2,000 for the Blink engine, or £4,500 for the rolling shell with the engine, box & Torsen all fitted.
I'm based in the West Midlands, I'll add a few pics but best to message me and / or come have a look if you're serious
howardb66: Had a drive of couple of 911s. They’re a funny old thing with the engine dangling right out of the wrong side of the rear axle. They go nicely & make a great noise tho.

wannabe: I drove one on one of those experience days - it was just like I've read about, all patter-y front end and weight transfer! I can see why people who like driving like them - the challenge of getting it right must be constant and rewarding (until rain!)

V6: The reality is, I suspect many of my dream cars would end up in a hedge on fire.
