Spring 2004 - Present
The Porsche is an ongoing exercise in high performance vehicle customization. This extensive redesign of an iconic sports car started with the replacement of the original 72 HP engine with a 370 HP Subaru engine. The resulting massive power increase necessitated the implementation of a custom tubular chassis, a unique cantilever suspension system, as well as a modified custom transaxle. Modifications of the vehicle are not just limited to its technical elements. The interior has been completly reapholstered while a custom, removable body, inspired by the original aesthetic of the car was fabricated. Infusing lightweight, technologically advanced components with classic German design has created a modern sports car that embodies the spirit of its track focused predecessors.
