After previously debuting an “eroded” Porsche 911 sculpture, New York-based artist, Daniel Arsham has just pulled the cover off of his latest project based on one of the Stuttgart firm’s iconic sportscars with what’s been christened the Arsham Porsche 911 Turbo 930A.
Born out of an extensive two-year R&D and fabrication process, the build started life as a 1986 930 Turbo, though the forced-induction flat-six model’s been treated to an extensive customization process, with practically every element receiving attention. The 930A pulls from Porsche’s own illustrious race history, combined with the language and ideology of my own studio. The 930A was completely rebuilt using an original ‘86 911 Turbo (930) donor car. Every aspect of the car was customized. Influenced by a myriad of vintage Porsches, the 930A rides on a set of heavily-modified, Fuch-esque wheels inspired by the RSR’s rims from the 1970s, while the custom race livery is loosely based on the Apple Computers-sponsored 935 K3 race car from 1980. The interior is fully bespoke, with two-tone stonewashed canvas and Italian leather upholstery, a leather and aluminum door sills and steering wheel, and a one-off set of hand-painted gauges. To finish the build, the stock six-banger was bored-out and completely rebuilt along with the transmission.
