The Lanzante TAG Championship: F1 Power Meets Classic Porsche

This isn’t your average Porsche. The Lanzante TAG Championship takes a legendary 930-era 911 and injects it with pure Formula 1 fury. Remember those dominant McLaren MP4/2 and MP4/2B cars that ruled the 1984 and 1985 F1 seasons? The TAG-powered 1.5-liter turbocharged V6 that propelled them to victory finds a new home here.

Gone is the original flat-six engine. In its place sits the ferocious F1 beast, completely transforming the car. To handle this monstrous power, Lanzante strips the 930 down to its core, reinforces the chassis, and adds a roll cage for safety. The result? A staggering weight reduction of nearly 950 pounds.

But the magic truly lies under the hood. With 625 horsepower screaming at a 10,250 RPM redline, this machine is a thrill-seeker’s dream. The TAG Championship boasts a mind-blowing top speed of 200 MPH.

To celebrate this historic fusion, Lanzante will build three TAG Championship cars. Each will wear a unique livery inspired by that era’s iconic McLaren race cars. The first of these champions will make its grand entrance at the prestigious 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed, so keep an eye out!
