WEIGHT WATCH­ING

Classic Porsche - - News & Products -

When it comes to weight re­duc­tion, the list of usual sus­pects in­cludes wheels, seats, door cards, win­dows, body pan­els, bumpers, bat­ter­ies and the rest. But what about the starter mo­tor? Would you be­lieve the stan­dard Bosch starter mo­tor in most air-cooled 911s weighs in at a hefty 11kg? Stuttgart Clas­si­caʼs lightweight al­ter­na­tive tips the scales at just 3.8kg, mak­ing for a worth­while saving. Com­pat­i­ble with all 911s up to 1989, this mo­tor is stronger and more pow­er­ful than the OE starter with a 2kw out­put, plus a gear re­duc­tion de­sign for max­i­mum torque when start­ing high com­pres­sion en­gines. The steel re­duc­tion gears also make the starter more re­li­able than many other starters on the mar­ket. Priced at £225, ship­ping is free to the UK and £60 for world­wide or­ders.
