Vehicle OverviewWe are excited to offer for sale this extremely rare Porsche 911 that many do not know even exists. This particular 1973 911T was built to its current specification by Brumos Porsche in Jacksonville, FL as a tribute to the Brumos #59 Daytona 24 hour winning car; the specification now holds the 911E nameplate.

Couch did send away for a COA from Porsche and also exchanged emails with Hurly Haywood which confirmed Brumos built several tribute cars for dealership sales.
