 904  GTS TRIBUTE CAR

 work in progress

 

The Specialty Auto-Sports (SAS) 904 Carrera GTS tribute is designed and built as a refined street sports car with modern amenities.  Other manufacturers of 904 replicas strive to retain most, if not all, of the race track features attributable to the original racing  904.  SAS President Steve Lawing believes that many owners would prefer a correct looking version of this memorable car in a more sophisticated form just as they do in our famous SAS 356A Speedsters, Cabriolets, and Coupes.

 

Other Available 904 Replicas

Replicas of the 904 are currently being produced by a number of companies including Martin and Walker in the UK, and Beck and Thunder Ranch in the US.  For those who prefer to have a race track car with the associated body alterations, noise, and harsh ride characteristics they should visit these folks.

 

Our Approach

If you consider accuracy in the body shape important then this refined SAS 904 GTS (Gentleman's Touring Special) tribute car is for you.  It also combines the best of retro automotive styling and racing history with selected modern amenities to create the SAS 904 GTS - a truly desirable modern touring car.

  1. The SAS 904 GTS is powered by the following Subaru Boxster mid-engines, longitudinally mounted:
    •      212hp  3.0L 6 cylinder  4 cam  DOHC fuel injected 
    •      256hp  3.6L 6 cylinder  4 cam  DOHC fuel injected  (option)

    All engines maintain the legal and proper emission controls which assure maximum performance of the engine.

     

  2. Our cars are religiously molded to capture  the original shape of the 904 GTS and unlike so many of the other 904 replicas we adhere to the historically correct body shape which includes:
