Although it looks like one of Stuttgart's models from the sixties or seventies, it is actually four decades of 911 gubbins from 1965 to 2000 thrown under one shell: the lightweight body is from 1972, the transaxle from 1977, the brakes from a 1986 Turbo, the engine from 1995, for example. It weighs 2,400 pounds and it's got 272 horsepower to get it going, but it's still a pure <a href="http://autoblog.com/porsche">Porsche</a>, Olson saying, "If you stop thinking about what you're doing, it will remind you in very abrupt ways."<br /><br />Olson said the real point has been to have one car that does it all, so he does everything in his 911 from neighborhood runs to 7-11 to track racing - he loads the aero bits in the car and bolts them on trackside. And he says he'll never stop tweaking the suspension.<br /><br />You can watch and hear the rest in Olson's words in the <a href="/2013/01/23/jack-olsen-built-one-porsche-to-do-it-all/#continued">video below</a>.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/23/jack-olsen-built-one-porsche-to-do-it-all/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Jack Olsen built one Porsche to do it all</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/23/jack-olsen-built-one-porsche-to-do-it-all/">Jack Olsen built one Porsche to do it all</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 23 Jan 2013 19:59:00 EST.
