Gunther Werks Transforms Classic Porsche 911 Into Stunning Speedster

Making old 911s even cooler

  • 993 reimagined by California car builder

  • Adds carbon and modern tech to air-cooled Porsche


The Porsche modifiers at Gunther Werks in California are at it again, this time turning the last of the air-cooled 911s into a stunning speedster with whale tail, more power, and an all-new suspension to help turn the car into a monster for the ages.

A 993 Speedster Remastered by Gunther Werks takes the classic Porsche 911 generation and cuts the top off. With extensive steps to stiffen the chassis including reinforcement in the rear seat area and a new roll cage and hoop bring back the stiffness and mostly hide under the gorgeous carbon fibre speedster top and tonneau cover.

Gunther Werks has gone beyond just the speedster-style cover with twin buttresses behind the seats, and has also tweaked the windshield with a new, more steeply raked frame. The windshield can be dropped entirely if drivers would prefer that look. A new front fascia adds a carbon fibre front spoiler and also uses a single-skin hood that’s 25 percent lighter than Gunther Werks’ already lightweight double-layer hood.

The ducktail in the rear is the highlight and includes a ram air intake scoop, but don’t miss the 3D-printed Inconel exhaust tips. Billet aluminum side mirrors and thinned door handles help complete the look, and there is a soft cabin cover for washing and storage.

Inside, a new carbon dash with LED shift lights is the highlight, along with a center console trim that’s carved from one block of aluminum. Hollow carbon shell seats lower driver and passenger to work along with the new front glass.

Under the rear cover is a 4.0L flat six that makes more than 435 hp and 335 lb-ft, though exactly how much more isn’t said. Lastly, a dynamic suspension from JRZ keeps the car, which is limited to just 25, planted to the pavement.
