(Motorsport-Total.com/Motor1) – When it comes to converting a Porsche 911, you don’t have to turn to Singer, because the British company Theon Design also creates dream sports cars in this category. This 964 model was originally a Carrera 4, but now engine power is sent through a six-speed manual transmission from the 993 to the rear axle with a limited slip differential.

Porsche 911 (964) by Theon Design
Eye-catching purple paintwork hides carbon body panels that reduce the car’s weight to just 1,164 kg. The heart of the classic 911 is the naturally aspirated engine with a displacement of 4.0 liters. It delivers a massive 406 hp and develops a torque of 476 Newton meters. Theon Design mentions that it offers a variety of air-cooled six-cylinder engines (3.6 to 4.0 liters), which can also be turbocharged or even supercharged if desired.
With great success comes great responsibility. Therefore, British specialists have improved the Porsche brakes with carbon discs and pads. There’s also a working wing at the back and a modern air conditioner at the front, which will keep you cool on hot days. Named CHI001, the custom 946 model features active exhaust and independent humidity control with five selectable modes.
The vintage Porsche 911 was commissioned by a Chilean customer and rides on 17-inch Fuchs-style wheels. The lovely interior is also purple. And it’s eye candy. There are Recaro Club Sport seats in the front and touring seats in the back.
Woven leather panels can be seen almost everywhere. Also on the dashboard. To keep up with the times, a wireless magnetic charger is included and there’s also Bluetooth connectivity for controlling the Focal audio system.
At the risk of stating the obvious, the “OEM+” Porsche 911 from Theon Design is not exactly the bargain of the century. Prices start at £380,000 (about €433,000 at current exchange rates) but that does not include the donor car, postage and local taxes. Customers also have to be patient, as the construction time is around 18 months.
