I am the new owner of a 1984 911 with 130000 miles on the car.

When I take off aggresivley in first gear there is a burnt rubber smell which comes in through the heater vent.

It doesn't smell like clutch/brake material (although I could be wrong), it does smell like tire smoke but it does not feel like the tires are breaking traction.

Does it sound like the clutch needs to be replaced/adjusted? Or does it sound like the tires are breaking traction?

The clutch has never slipped under full accelleration once fully engaged.

you are burning the clutch. if you drive hard that will happen if the clutch is getting old. but under normal driving it may work fine and i am sure you can smell it takes forever to get rid of the smell
