A Legend Reborn.
Gunther Werks 400R
The 400 Horsepower
Rear Wheel Drive Masterpiece
Given its air-cooled sound, throttle response, non-electric components and short wheelbase, many Porsche enthusiasts see the 993 as the last "real Porsche" - the pinnacle of the evolution of the original 1964 911 design.
To realize the dream of creating the best 993 ever, Gunther Werks 400R restoration essentially created a motorsport inspired 911 for the 993 chassis. The 400R will appeal to even the most discriminating Porsche aficionado.
The 400R is a highly customized car that is lightweight, stronger and more rigid than the original. Like an Olympian in training, the 400R sheds weight and gains strength with carbon-fiber composite body panels, deck lid, spoiler, roof and more.
The carbon fiber bodywork is vacuum bagged and baked in a pressurized autoclave set to 250+ degrees.
In the cockpit, Gunther Werks balances the spartan interior of the 911 with the more luxurious cabin elements of the 993. It embraces the DNA of the original design while respectfully remastering it. Carbon fiber bucket seats, floor panels and rear-seat deletes are integral to the transformation. Clients control the customization of the interior with Alcantara, carbon fiber and billet aluminum accents.
The 400R is truly a bespoke vehicle with both the silhouette and soul of the classic 993. Only a fortunate few are destined to own the limited-edition 400R.
