Meet Black Beauty, Jack Olsen’s 1972 Porsche 911 RSR. I love Jack’s philosophy towards building things. He refused to believe that he had to make sacrifices on the street in order to go fast on track. To that end he built Black Beauty to be his one and only recreational car. He packs all of his aero parts, tools and safety gear into the 911 and then drives it to the track. Motivation is provided by a 1995 Porsche 911 engine that makes a little less than 300 horsepower. Jack says, “All of the genius of my particular car is in the suspension and I want to continue tweaking that suspension almost indefinitely. Horsepower is something that looks great in a magazine article, but suspension is what actually gets you around the track fast and this car does a fantastic job because of its suspension.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.
