Our fabrication workshop is busy as always, laying the foundations for some fabulous bespoke Porsche 911 builds. The latest projects to come under the capable hammers of Andy and Chris are a 2-litre race car for a European client and a brand new Safari-spec rally car, coming together for this year’s Morocco Historic Rally.
Safari cars are a massive undertaking, taking hundreds of hours in shell prep alone. The numbers are staggering but the performance of our Safari cars speaks for itself: three victories on the East African Safari Classic Rally and countless fastest stage wins in their impeccable history.
Our most recent Safari winner, Richard Jackson’s 911 (above), has been invited to take part in the Porsche 70th anniversary celebrations at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, which takes place from July 12th to 15th, while our first Safari winner – Björn Waldegård’s car from 2011 – has been enjoying some fun in the snow on Below Zero Ice Driving in Sweden. We expect it to arrive back in the UK any day.
As Andy continues work on the Safari build, Chris has just finished a 2-litre car for historic racing in Europe. We are also building the engine for this car to our latest 2-litre spec. The SWB shell was in very good condition for an early 911, though we have fitted new floorpans and a few other panel repair sections into the car. It has now left the fabrication workshop and headed off for final finish and paint in the bodyshop (above).
We look forward to seeing this 1965 2-litre 911 in all its fully restored glory and sharing more pics of the next bespoke projects on our list! Contact us to talk through your Porsche build plans – we are always happy to discuss how we can help.
