In a stunning display of craftsmanship and performance, Theon Design has unveiled its latest masterpiece: a Porsche 964 Restomod that's as majestic as it is powerful.

Coated in a captivating Oak Green Metallic, this beauty is more than just a pretty face. It's a reimagined classic that packs a punch under the hood with a modified 4.0-liter air-cooled flat-six engine, delivering a robust 406 hp.

This exceptional vehicle, referred to as GBR002, began its journey as a 1992 Porsche 964 Carrera 2. Theon Design meticulously stripped it down to its bare metal, reinforcing the chassis and replacing nearly all the bodywork with carbon fiber, except for the steel doors.

The result? A significant weight reduction to 1,169 kg (2,577 lbs), enhancing its agility and performance.

But Theon Design didn't stop there. They've tastefully tweaked its styling, paying homage to the original 911's timeless design while elevating it with modern flair. Riding on elegant 18-inch Fuchs-style wheels and boasting modern RS brakes and five-stage active dampers, this restomod is as much about performance as it is about aesthetics.

The heart of the GBR002 is its naturally aspirated 4.0-liter engine, which ensures a thrilling drive. This power is smoothly delivered to the rear axle through a Hewland six-speed manual gearbox, complemented by a Wavetrac Torsen limited-slip differential. And for those who appreciate a symphony of engine sounds, a switchable exhaust with a ceramic coating by Zircotec makes every ride an auditory delight.

Inside, the GBR002 is just as impressive. It features a chic blend of Muslin leather and Alcantara/leather panels, alongside modern amenities like a Bluetooth multimedia system and a premium 6-speaker audio system.

The classic feel is preserved with a Nardi deep-dish steering wheel and Recaro CS seats, creating a comfortable yet sporty cabin experience.

Theon Design's meticulous attention to detail and bespoke craftsmanship don't come cheap, though. Prices start at a hefty £380,000 ($480,200), excluding the cost of the donor car and additional expenses. Each project takes around 18 months to complete, ensuring that every owner receives a car tailored to their exact specifications.
