Our History

Francis Tuthill’s reputation for reliable rally cars was cemented in 1977, when Francis raced the London to Sydney Rally in a fully prepped Volkswagen Beetle.

A successful first raid on this event, followed by victory in the 1993 London to Sydney Rally, meant enthusiasts all over the world heard about Tuthill Porsche, leading them to the small workshop in Wardington, Oxfordshire where Francis built his adventure-focused Volkswagen cars and buses. It wasn’t long until Porsche 356 owners began to call on Francis Tuthill for help and advice. From our first 356s came the 911, creating a legendary association that is now almost four decades old.

Along the way came a partnership with Prodrive, preparing bodyshells for the famous Rothmans Porsche 911 SC RS, and Subaru Legacy rally cars piloted by drivers including Colin McRae. Tuthill Porsche has since returned to the World Rally Championship, with the first Porsche 911 to rally in WRC for almost thirty years. The team won the 2015 FIA WRC R-GT championship in a 997 GT3 R-GT rally car, and 2017 sees the return of the 997 R-GT, which will be rallying in the UK and Ireland.

Now synonymous with the world’s most successful historic Porsche rally cars, and having worked with rallying’s greatest names, Tuthills also build winning Porsche circuit racers. Our cars have claimed two FIA Masters Series championships and Tuthill-built 911 RSRs continue to set the pace in FIA Masters.

The Tuthill Porsche workshops regularly take on complete restoration projects. All aspects of Porsche 356 and 911 rebuilding are carried out in-house, from engine and transmission builds to rust repair, metal fabrication, roll cage installation and full body & paint. Tuthill also builds bespoke Porsche 911 road cars for discerning drivers in search of something unique from their classic Porsche 911.
