When Porsche teased the Project Gold with an old-school body shell to celebrate 70 years of the brand, the hearts of many enthusiast skipped a beat. We all screamed restomods and dreamed of the genius of Porsche engineers putting together a machine that would just slay all the tuners.
Turns out that the Project Gold is one rare 993-generation 911 Turbo S, one of the lesser known of the Porsches, but the one that can turn your definition of a fast car on its head. Porsche, now, did not think that they should try and better what their engineers achieved in those days, something that was certainly ahead of time.
So, they built an all-new Porsche 911 Turbo 993 to be lighter, put newer suspension bits to improve its ride and handling and kept he motor untouched for the purity of that air-cooled force-fed boxer engine. Painted in pure gold, it gets bespoke interiors with gold highlights and the big turbo badge embroidered on the head rests. The only thing modern that you can see on the car is the LED headlamps apart from the shade of gold which adorns the latest Gold-series of the new 911.
Sadly, Porsche is not building more of these and it also isn’t street legal. But that makes this a one-off and it will be auctioned on October 27.
