A quick quartet

The childhood dream of Dieter Röscheisen shines in Petrol Blue Metallic and Grand Prix White – a Heigo-Porsche 911 SC. Built by him and a few friends in 1979. The automotive master technician, who started work during Porsche in 1976 as a automechanic in a using rigging exam department, competed in inhabitant and general rallies in 1980 together with Klaus Hesse from a city of Kitzingen in Lower Franconia “Unfortunately a deteriorate ate adult so most income that we motionless to sell a Heigo-Porsche during a World Championship jubilee in Regensburg,” says Röscheisen, who was in his mid-twenties during a time. Walter Röhrl introduced him to a meddlesome customer from England.

An halcyon setting: a initial corner tour of a 4 Heigo-Porsche cars started in Straubing in Lower Bavaria, a supposed gateway to a Bavarian Forest.

Almost 30 years later: Röscheisen’s write rang in Nov 2009. Stephen “Steve” Davies from a Midlands city of Stoke-on-Trent in England was on a other end. The taxation consultant had recently purchased a automobile in Sheffield. “I detected it in a back-street garage, lonesome in rags,” recounts a now 69-year-old, who trafficked roughly 1,800 kilometres to Straubing in Lower Bavaria for a initial assembly of a 4 Heigo-Porsche cars. 30 hours for a brief corner outing. When Davies acquired a Porsche 911 SC, it was embellished in Rothmans colours. “The patina of a Porsche was seminar dirt,” says a Briton and laughs. He took partial in a series of events and rallies before he was asked one day in a seminar if he knew about a colour underneath a Rothmans livery. No. With a few paint samples, he afterwards searched in a repository for relating vehicles. He found a review for a Porsche that had once been driven by Röhrl. He therefore rang a Bavarian, who he had famous for a prolonged time from a convene scene. Röhrl remembered Röscheisen’s Heigo-Porsche and gave Davies a phone series of his friend.

“I couldn’t trust it during initial that this automobile still existed. we suspicion that it had been scrapped prolonged ago,” says Röscheisen 10 years after a call. Any slow doubts were separated when Davies compared a holes of a former hurl enclosure with those on Röscheisen’s aged photos. “The coupling seams on a window support were unique. In 1979, we built all on this Heigo-Porsche privately for rallying so that jumps would not lead to extreme torsion,” explains Röscheisen. The suspicion for a colour multiple came from Ginger Ostle, who worked in a Porsche pattern studio during a time: “Ginger positioned a automobile underneath a lamp, and matched a colours Petrol and White accurately to a projected shadow,” he says and follows this with an anecdote. “During a convene in Marktredwitz it was snowing heavily while we walked by a parc fermé to take a demeanour during a vehicles. The sleet line on my automobile accurately matched a white partial of a paintwork, an unbelievably agreeable sight.”


Dynamic driving: Walter Röhrl was out in front. After all he knows each hook in a Bavarian Forest. Typically for a convene universe champion, a brief outing into a friend’s private timberland finished with a few high-speed drifts.

Steve Davies motionless to revive a automobile to a strange condition formed on a creator’s photos. The Porsche that was mislaid for roughly 30 years was presented in 2010 during a International Historic Motorsport Show “Race Retro” in Stoneleigh Park in Coventry, usually underneath 30 kilometres south-east of Birmingham. “Steve told me on a phone to container my racing clothes, and that we would expostulate a special theatre together. That was a unequivocally romantic impulse for me, since we suspicion that we would never see my automobile again,” says Röscheisen.

Details of a Heigo-Porsche 911 SC RS Evo III

The reproduction Heigo-Porsche 911 SC RS Evo III are all authorized by Dieter Röscheisen and Walter Röhrl, have a 3.4-litre engine with around 340 PS and locate a eye with their ideal paintwork in Petrol Blue Metallic and Grand Prix White. The strange from 1979 has an outlay of 278 PS interjection to automatic injection.

The strange from 1979 has an outlay of 278 PS interjection to automatic injection.

Back in Germany, he visited his crony Rafael Diez, owners of a replacement workshop. There he saw a white G-model and asked Diez what he was formulation to do with it. “Nothing adult to now, it has been on a lifting height for dual years,” pronounced a 51-year-old automotive master technician. What now followed was inevitable: together they grown a suspicion of a second Heigo-Porsche. The thought of a dual group and a progressing unite Helmut Heilmann, Managing Director of Heigo Autotechnik, was to make a automobile some-more pleasing and improved than a strange ever was. This was an desirous goal. One and a half years later, a plan Heigo-Porsche II was as good as finish and usually a set-up drives still had to be performed. These were finished by Dieter Röscheisen and his crony Walter Röhrl, who would after also expostulate a automobile in several classical rallies and events.

A burst in time. Seven years before, Röscheisen handed out a series of indication cars of his creatively built Heigo-Porsche. “When Dieter gave me a indication automobile in 2005, it was transparent to me that we also wanted to have a Porsche like this one day. Extremely sporty and fun,” says Klaus-Jürgen Orth, afterwards owners of a telecommunications association in Frankfurt am Main. His business partner Udo Müller common this wish. At a start of 2013, a dual therefore strictly gave Diez a sequence to build dual Heigo-Porsche 911 SC RS Evo III for them. Licensed and set adult by Röscheisen and Röhrl, a double convene universe champion. The Evo III has a 3.4-litre engine and, with an outlay of 340 PS, delivers a whole 62 PS some-more than a strange from 1979, that eliminated 278 PS to a highway interjection to automatic injection instead of K-Jetronic. “The ducktail engine cell lid and a Turbo extensions corresponded to a homologation for Group 4,” remembers Röscheisen, who built adult a afterwards one-year-old G-model with 3.0-litre engine.

“We did a lot of growth work and experimented with springs and dampers. We were means to review a cars with stream convene cars during a Lower Bavaria Rally. From this, we resolved that a Heigo-Porsche models were perfect.”
Walter Röhrl


Routine: Walter Röhrl has seen large cockpits of convene cars in his life.

“Rafael, Dieter and we did a lot of growth work, experimented with springs and dampers, and changed brazen slowly,” explains Röhrl, who has already driven a Heigo-Porsche reproduction as a lead automobile in a Lower Bavarian Rally, a competition that is partial of a German Championship. “We got a good comparison there with stream convene cars. The automobile was unequivocally good right from a start. Without any frills. When we are sitting in it, we are a one who does everything. And afterwards it possibly drives ideally – or not,” he continues. In his case, it of march rubbed perfectly. “The art of pushing is to proceed a 90-degree hook and to control a stifle precisely and tenderly so that we can deposit by a hook is purify and tranquil way,” says Röhrl, who afterwards demonstrates this ability in a closed-off partial of a private timberland owned by a good friend. The 3 other Heigo-Porsche owners demeanour on in awe.


Coming home: after work in Udo Müller’s barn.

“When we drive, we am during one with myself,” says Udo Müller. “The automobile gives me so much, pushing it during a boundary is usually a illusory experience,” adds Klaus-Jürgen Orth while he watches a convene fable drifting. 40 years after a initial idea. The childhood dream of Dieter Röscheisen that had not been scrapped behaving a ideal drift. And so things come full circle: Literally.
