Let's keep the Porsche vehicles on the road.

Porsche has been in the business of creating exhilarating sports coupes since the original 356s were tearing up race circuits in the 1950's. Now, Porsche is working with owners to make sure that these cars, as well as classic 911s, 914s, and other legendary driver's cars are staying on the road.

Porsche's Restorations Have Incredible Attention to Detail

The quality of any restoration rests on how much attention to detail is given to the car. Porsche's Restorations perfectly exemplify the kind of perfectionism which made the cars so legendary to begin with. On the website for their services, Porsche explains that their methods include "original special tools, body frame gauges and data sheets," as well as a state of the art workshop.

The Elbow Grease Pays Off

All of this dedication to making sure that the cars that they restore are among the best speaks for itself. The image galleries that Porsche provides clearly show how their teams of technicians thoroughly disassemble the classics, restore or replace parts as necessary, then painstakingly put the German jigsaw puzzle back together. Take a look at these incredible photos.

Impeccable Example: Porsche 911
One gallery shows the restoration of a 1973 Porsche 911. When the doors are opened on the enclosed trailer, the car which emerges is far from the car that will eventually be raffled off by the Porsche Club of America. The car is stripped down to fundamental components, the body is carefully reconstructed by hand and painted, the interior is comprehensively perfected, and finally the car is reassembled. When the final product is revealed by the Porsche Club of America, and the car is presented to the winner of the raffle, the car looks like a brand new car--from 45 years ago.

There's More Where That Came From

The Porsche Restoration website has several of these galleries, some with stories which describe the process from start to finish. I, for one, could look at these images all day. It's hard to imagine a better place to have these older Porsches restored to their original brilliance.
