Fire up - cold start of a Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer
Firing up my 1976 Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer after two months having
stood in the garage... Note the flame after the backfire!
The procedure for a cold engine is as follows:
Twist the ingnition key to the first position. You will hear the clicking
of the fuel pumps as they start delivering fuel to the carburetors. After
approximately 15 to 20 seconds, pump the accellerator pedal to the floor
four or five times, squirting lots of fuel into the intakes. Then, while
holding the accellerator pedal about a third of the way down, twist the
ignition key to the start position. You will hear a deep, exiting,
expolding bark as the engine comes to life, accompanied by significant
quantities of smoke out of the Exhaust
tips, as the oil that hs been resting in the cylinders is burnt. If the
ambient temperture is cold and the car has not been driven for a while, the
engine may die, necessitating a repeat of the above-described prodecure.
Once started, the rpms should be kept at 2,000 until the smoke clears,
usually in about two to three minutes.
Out on the open road, at low to mid-throttle, the moaning and slurping
sound of the Webers is the dominant sensation. When the throttle is opened
wide, the result is a massive roar and a seamless delivery of power. The
smooth power delivery is deceptive as a glance at the speedometer usually
reveals speeds greater than expected. The sound of the engine when extended
is exciting and is similar to the sounds emanating from Jody Scheckter's
and Gilles Villeneuve's Formula One flat-12s!

1993 Porsche Type 964 3.8 Carrera RSR "One of 51 Factory Built Race Cars"
Hoekstra LTD is proud to present this pristine, unmolested example of the
now iconic Porsche Type 964 3.8 Carrera RSR for your consideration. A
prominent local business man was looking for car that he could run at PCA
and private events, and possibly work towards a pro license. After
considering a Carrera Cup Car, he was able to speak with Jurgen Barth, who
drove a 3.8 RSR to a class victory at Le Mans. Barth was quick to point out
the RSR was special and very different than the 3.6 liter Cup cars, not
just the power of the newly designed 3.8 but also touting the suspension,
"completely done in unibal (heim) joints and this makes the car a real race
car, whereas the Cup cars are still production-based".(link to article) It
was then decided that it would be worth the trouble (and money) to secure
an RSR. With the decision made, car 496101 was ordered Le Mans spec with
every factory option: Air-Jack system, center-lock wheels, additional brake
cooling, a quick fueling 120 liter fuel cell, two induction intakes, two
sets of factory wheels, and a host of other accessories.
When this specially built RSR was ultimately delivered through Champion
MotorSports, Car and Driver caught wind of its arrival U.S. and convinced
its new owner to allow a test session with the rare car so as to place it
in their magazine as a feature article. As such, it is the only 964 RSR
ever tested and featured in a major automotive publication. After the Car
and Driver Test Session, this car began its pampered life of private track
time and participation in 6 PCA events over a 17 month period all the while
being prepared, monitored and maintained by Brumos Racing. (Link to Brumos
Bills). In 1998, Ownership of this car quietly changed hands form the
original owner to a private collector, enthusiast and friend. After
achieving his Pro license and certification, the second owner qualified the
car to participate in the Speedvision World Challenge race at Scott Brayton
Memorial Street Circuit in Grand Rapids, MI. Recognizing the historical
significance of the 3.8 RSR, the car remained in his private collection
used only at private track events until 2004 when the car was invited to
participate at the RennSport Reunion in Daytona where it was very well
Used only 8,683 kilometers since delivery and a recent freshening to bring
the car back to its original " Car and Driver" look, this 3.8 Carrera RSR
remains in highly original, unmolested, factory concours condition. The car
retains its original motor (Rebuilt by Brumos), both original factory gear
boxes, original sheet-metal, original factory interior and gauges, 2 sets
of original factory Speedline wheels, original RSR specific brake calipers,
original factory components, factory spares etc. Mechanically the car is
set up, turn-key and ready for track use. The documentation of this car is
exceptional, including: All correspondence between original owner and
Jurgan Barth of Porsche Customer Racing division, all factory invoices for
car and spares, a first bound copy of the April 1994 Car and Driver issue
where this car was featured and the correspondence involved for Car and
Driver to obtain this car for testing, all importation records, all service
receipts, a transcript of the Jurgen Barth interview featured in Panorama,
original sales literature, log book, and many other letters and
correspondences leaving no holes in the history of this 3.8 RSR.
The Porsche 964 3.8 Carrera RSR has taken its place in motorsports history
and will always be revered as one of the most successful, most reliable
street based GT coupes ever produced. With only 51 examples produced and
only 11 imported to North America, these cars are very few and far between;
original, unmolested examples such as this one are nearly unobtainable. It
is estimated that there are only four unmolested type 964 RSR's left in
existence. With values of the factory RSR's of 1973 and 74 approaching a
million plus dollars and a 20 year absence from Porsches program, 1993
factory 3.8 Carrera RSR's are sure to follow. This, the last type 964 RSR
built and the feature RSR of Car and Driver Magazine, is a must for any
serious Porsche Collector and Porsche Motorsports enthusiast.
