Tuner GP 2013: BBi Autosport Profile

1985 Porsche 911 Carrera led in beauty but lacked in speed

Dec 9, 2013 SHARE

BBi Autosport, stationed in Huntington Beach, CA, specializes in tuner parts ranging from exhaust to interior cages and even engine pulleys, using high-end materials. BBi brought the oldest and arguably the best-looking competitor to the GP. The ’85 911 Carrera was equipped with a 3.6L flax-six with a built bottom end and 997 GT3 Cup titanium rods.

Results of the dyno put the team at the bottom of the pack with a final horsepower rating of 276.3hp and 255.8 lb-ft of torque.

BBi’s 911 may have lacked the modern technologies required to compete with the front of the pack but it reminded us of how well thought-out engineering of the past can stand up against contemporary machinery.
