What is an Air-Cooled Porsche Backdate?

Porsche reimagined by Singer is a classic Porsche Backdate project that probably energized the trend to backdate Porsches. What does it mean to backdate a Classic Porsche? A good example is this 1983 Porsche 911SC currently on PCarMarket that is “Backdated” to resemble a 1973 Porsche 2.7 RS.

A backdate is defined as taking a newer Porsche and modifying it to resemble an older Porsche. In this case, a 1978 911SC was modified to look like a 1973 Porsche 911RS.
