This car with VIN-Nr 911 230 1081 (we will refer to it as #1081) was delivered by the factory as a Gulf Orange Porsche 911S with T race-specification to Max Moritz on 27 March 1973 for delivery to fur trader and racer Claus Utz from Reutlingen.
The T race spec was comprised of light-weight body, thin glass, alu trunk lid, sport seats, 5 speed gearbox, front spoiler and anti-roll bars to which Claus Utz then added in his purchase order an 80 liter fuel tank, special speedometer (up to 300km), special rev counter (up to 10,000 rpm) and a limited slip differential. The engine number was 6321607 and gearbox nr was 326765. Claus Utz paid for the car with some cash and his old 911S plus a Volkswagen.

In 1976 Kuhn took part in 9 German Rally Championship events and, despite finishing 6th in the final classification, he achieved 5 wins.
