Restored 911 combines heritage and fashion
The centrepiece of the vehicle restoration is a fully custom interior, featuring Schott sunflower leather and Loro Piana houndstooth, the same materials highlighted in Aimé Leon Dore’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection.
The bespoke seats were meticulously restored in the legendary RECARO workshop in Kirchheim, Germany. It holds a care bag inspired by designs from the Porsche Classic product archive.
The Cup 2 wheels are a nod to Porsche in the 1990s. A graphic Pegasus detail above the front wheel, designed specifically for this project, references logos from historic Porsche racing cars. Working together with Porsche on this project has been a dream come true. It has been a deeply humbling experience to be entrusted with a project of such importance to the Porsche community and to work together on a design that has been so instrumental in shaping my own outlook and aspirations, says Teddy Santis. Finally, a custom-designed grille badge sits on the vehicle’s rear grille, referencing the distinctive memorabilia created and collected by fans from the Porsche clubs. The technical restoration and reassembly of the vehicle were completed using period-correct original Porsche parts and with support from Porsche Classic. Teddy Santis is as much a Porsche fan as we are, and we are delighted to see his inspiration and creativity applied to the 911. His interpretation is visually stunning and also shows unique features for a 964 – it’s a true one-of-a kind, says Kjell Gruner, Vice President Marketing at Porsche AG.
