Good times here at Francis Tuthill’s Porsche Workshop today, as we had no less than four beautiful early 911s in for attention in our road car section.
Red is always a popular colour, but how many early cars do you know that are still running their original paint? The one in the top left is. It’s a little SWB road and regularity rally car, in for an engine refresh. Beautiful.
The white Targa is another stunner. That chrome bar at the back is oh-so-right with the black hood and tidy paintwork. Early Targas just shout ‘Roll on Summer!’
On the ramp to the right is Fran’s own S, mentioned on the news blog a few days ago. Behind it is a glorious hot rod 911 ST, featuring the classic Fuchs and Minilite combination, with a through-the-bonnet filler cap. Built for a very special customer of ours a few years ago, it still comes back for a check up every now and then.
On days like these, you walk into the workshop, look around, sniff the air, rich in early Porsche and say “yes, today is a good day.”
How cool is it to work in these conditions? We love it!
