993 SuperCup – Powered Restomod 911 By Theon

It seems that the market for restomoded 911s is blossoming, with Porsche die-hard fans and aficionados having quite a selection to choose from lately, and this Theon unit is one of them.

Offered for sale by “The Octane Collection” for the eye-watering price of £219,995 ($314,170), this particular 911 combines the classic bodywork of the original car with a bespoke interior and drive-train combination. But what exactly makes it different from the other 911 restomods available on the market?

Well, for starters, apart from the hand stitched leather interior, bespoke body modifications, custom 17-inch Fuchs wheels, custom coil-overs and other mods, the vehicle features a Porsche motorsport RS engine. The powerplant, originally destined to race in the 993 SuperCup Series, was supplied by Porsche Motorsport and it was built to RS specifications. That includes equal length stainless steel manifolds (among other stuff), and a power output of 300 HP. So, you can imagine what kind of howl the race-spec engine makes, especially as it has an “intimidating race idle” – as the company selling the Porsche describes it.

To make matters even more interesting, the car started life as an original 1979 930 3.0SC variant. Obviously, everything on the vehicle has been replaced with new, upgraded parts, as Theon set out to build the definitive resto-modification Porsche.

    Not bad but if I could afford one of these I would definitely go with a Singer. More power, much nicer interior, carbon fiber body, etc…

      at least it has a original Porsche built engine.

    Cheap Singer imitation.

    • why? Is Singer the only one allowed to make those?

        Take a closer look at Singer and you will see that CFK is right. Theon is definantly trying to copy Singer. They tried sooo hard to replicate Singers drop dead georgeous rear fenders.. but my god they messed up.. looks abit like a covin 911 😉

  • The rear bumber is strange it seems to be made to US regulations with place for an EU plate.
