Aimé Leon Dore & Porsche Double Down For A 2nd Stylish 911 Restomod Build

Last summer, Porsche partnered up with New York fashion label Aimé Leon Dore on a 964-gen 911 Carrera 4 build. Equal parts painstaking restomod and fashion-forward design experiment, it saw the car transformed into a carefully curated amalgamation of notable 911 history and signature ALD style.

Ever the devoted airhead aficionado, Aimé Leon Dore founder Teddy Santis is back once again with another Porsche project. This time, however, it’s based on a 1978 911 Super Carrera. Done up in a cool khaki-colored paint with some 16″ Fuchs, a set of front-mounted fog lights, and a roof rack packed full of various antique accouterments, it inspires some serious 70s nostalgia. Open the doors and you’ll find that the vintage vibe continues throughout the interior. For instance, gone are the floor mats, door trimmings, and trunk lining, replaced instead by Persian rugs. What’s more, the seats have been treated to a full-grain cowhide leather and jerga fabric reupholstery, with the driver’s side wearing a retro Recaro-branded bead cover. Rounded out by some faded photographs strapped to the visor, the result is one Porsche that’s truly unlike any other. It’ll be available for viewing at ALD’s flagship NY store from May 21-23.
