The name Gunther Werks is derived as a homage to Günter Wendt. Günter Wendt was German born American mechanical engineer who worked for NASA from 1949. He was known for his strict configuration standards and commitment to safety. Regarded very highly by all, he continued with NASA right up to the early space shuttle flights before retiring in 1989. His dedication is the inspiration behind Gunther Werks name.
Gunther Werks was created by the founder of Vorsteiner, a company best known as a global leader in providing the most advanced and innovative products on the market to meet the demands of the most discerning clientele.
For more than 14 years, the company has manufactured handmade carbon composite products for sports and luxury vehicles and is now regarded as a premiere leader within the automotive aftermarket industry, with a reputation for delivering high-quality products to a global market.
The Gunther Werks senior team has more than 45 years of international market experience in the modification and custom build car industry.
This expertise has been embodied in the Gunther Werks 400R Program for the 993, which has been hand-built and re-engineered from the ground up. The 400R Program incorporates modern technology and luxury elements, while still maintaining the essential components of the original car which inspired so many enthusiasts.
Our mastery of art and science was born in California, where respect for the past meets cutting edge research and development across a plethora of fields, and where automotive mythology comes to life every weekend.
Gunther Werks brings that past into the present. By combining state-of-the-art technology with all the conveniences of modern vehicles in a retro-designed package, every Gunther Werks creation exists among the most unique and versatile luxury sports cars ever built.
Attention to detail and usability are at the forefront of what we stand for.
Every Gunther Werks vehicle is meant to be driven — far beyond the capabilities of the cars from which they are derived - with total confidence that each will live up to the dream of designers hobbled by the technology of their time.
In doing so, Gunther Werks has achieved the impossible: the creation of perfection that never existed, accessible as both art and science, appreciable whether static or in motion, without sacrificing vision or utility.
