993-era 911 is subject to a painstaking restoration and customisation process; it’s being revealed bit by bit for Porsche’s 70th birthday celebrations
The Project Gold car, which is still under wraps, is being slowly revealed through a series of previews showing the process of creating it, with the theme of the project being a black-and-gold colour scheme.
The car’s shape in sketches and unpainted body were shown in the first preview, followed by its wheels. 993 Turbo hollow-spoke Twist wheels are shown being painted and details etched into the paintwork.
The seats, also finished in black with gold highlights, bear the 911’s recognisable Turbo script, giving more clues as to the car’s identity.
The car will be a one-off. Porsche hasn’t confirmed whether it will produce more restomods in the same vein but says “a vehicle like this has never existed before”.
It’s not known if Porsche will stray from the 396bhp of the 993 Turbo’s original air-cooled 3.6-litre flat-six engine, although if the project follows Singer and other such restomods, it will greatly exceed that output.
Porsche will reveal a new detail of the car’s completion each week before a final reveal at Pebble Beach’s Monterey Car Week on 24 August.
