This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess

The 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" is a 600+ horsepower one-off that could be yours

The first automobile was invented in 1886 and since then many great cars have emerged. But even nearly 140 years after the automobile’s invention, there are very few cars that have a cult following as zealous as that of the Porsche 911. This is especially true for the air-cooled models, which are all-time classics. If we combine the significance of an air-cooled 911 with the cocaine-snorting excess of the 1970s, we can see how a one-off 1979, guards red, modified Porsche 911 Turbo can be listed for $599,000 by a Florida dealership.

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.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
