Worth. Every. Penny.
Before today, we’ve been accustomed to seeing the absolute best and endlessly cool Porsche 911 restomod jobs coming from LA-based Singer Vehicle Design. Oh man, do we crave those. But now there’s another restomod shop that also specializes in classic Porsche 911s, and we were sold even before we read the specs. Presenting the Porsche 911 by Theon Design, founded only last year by Adam Hawley, a 10-year industry veteran in car design. This restomod 911 is not only gorgeous but it also has a dirty secret: it was originally a 1979 930.SC.
Now, however, it comes powered by a new old stock 3.6-liter flat-six with 300 hp, supplied by Porsche Motorsport and was originally supposed to race in the 993 SuperCup. It's paired with a five-speed manual. Zero to 60 mph happens in four seconds flat and there’s just 599 miles on the clock. The exterior is a tribute to the 70s, right down to the Stone Grey paint and square edge design that mimics the flair and presence of the RSR race car using composite materials and carbon fiber. That orange sign writing looks stunning along with those deep dish Fuchs. Step inside and you’ll find a tan leather interior. Diamond quilted seats? Check. Leather-wrapped roll bar and carbon fiber dashboard?
Oh yeah. A Momo Prototipo steering wheel is simply icing on the cake. And yes, the achingly beautiful restomod 911 by Theon is for sale, offered by the Octane Collection. How much? £179,999, or about $255,000. Worth. Every. Penny.
