Porsche Customization, Restoration and Modification | Restomod Shops
Classic cars are wonderful to look at and in some cases fun to drive – many however, suffer from the problems of yesteryear. We’ve become so accustomed to all the driver aid features and smoothness of the modern car, that often the classic seems to come up short for likeability and drivability. This is where the custom-built or restomod car has a significant role to play.
Restoration Modification – Restomod Shop
Taking and older car, updating components and customizing looks is known as “restoration modification” or “restomod” (as we live in a world that needs to shorten everything to an acronym or slang version.) The goal here is not to return an older Porsche back to production spec, but to blend old style with new technology, to create a unique Porsche that is custom and perfect for an individual buyer. And this can go as crazy as you want.
A restomod car has the timeless appearance of the original classic, yet underneath the car is full of modern technology and high-performance parts. For example, this type of work gives you the beautiful looks of an air-cooled Porsche, combined with the smooth performance and comforts of a water-cooled car.
The restomod Porsche has boomed in popularity with some very well-known companies strongly developing the space, setting out their style niche and guiding prices. Some companies can deliver an off-the-shelf design while others prefer a more custom and bespoke approach to each customer. Either way, these are typically high value projects.
