Physics based on 1972 Group 4 spec.

Originally Porsche had attempted to get the 911S homologated to group 2 (Group 2 was for touring cars and included the Capri2600 and BMW 2800CS). However the FIA had not agreed, calling the 911S instead a GT car and placing it in group 4. (With the early Pantera). As it turns out group 4 and group 2 cars would run almost the same lap times. At the 1972 LeMans test some weeks before the race the capri2600 seemed to be the fastest of anyone in group 2 or 4, however at the end of the test one car had gone faster it was the Kermer 911S.

The factory had placed its considerable weight behind the 914-6 for the last few years (with good results). However Kermer had stuck with the 911 and had one of the fastest. By 72 the little 2.5 liter flat 6 had been pushed to as much as 275 hp. This was on the outside edge of the engines reliability window and Kermer would not finish the 24hour race that year.

In 73 the engine would go to 2.7 along with a host of other modifications to make what would be called the RSR but that is another story. Runs very well with the other 1972 era cars like the Capri 2600, BMW 2800CS, Porsche 914-6, and small block vette and Pantera. While not as forgiving as the BMW 2800CS, and with less power than all but the 14-6, well driven it is one of the best cars in this group. Light weight, and with the ability that all 911 based race cars have to put down power on corner exit make it capable of very good lap times.

Special thanks to:
