Mletzko Newgen was 13 years old when he saw his first Porsche 911 and the sight of the 2.7 RS, and the emotion it stirred inside him has remained with him ever since. Later on in life and shortly after selling the real estate company he had built, Newgen set out to customize and rebuild a VW Beetle. However, after a trip to California, he came across a 911 restomod and instantly fell in love with the combination of the classic car’s timeless outside lines and exterior, coupled with its heavily revised and modernized cabin, ultimately promoting him to found his own tuning shop with the goal of churning out restomodded Porsche 911s.
Mletzko’s latest work has been dubbed “Marrakesch,” and it takes everything the builder loves about 911 restomods and cranks it up a few notches. From the outside, the restomod is fairly understated with its white paint, with its only immediately noticeable deviations from its stock form being its purple wheels and purple plaid print Porsche script adorning the sides and rear of the car. The interior, on the other hand, is a markedly more elaborate affair, with a carpet-inspired design and motif with custom race seats and upscale upholstery throughout. The extensive use of carbon fiber has enabled the Marrakech to drop almost 450lbs and it now rides on a suspension setup that was custom developed in collaboration with Öhlins — a combination that affords the 911 suburb handling. And this is just one of the exceedingly fine examples to come out of Newgen’s firm, with even more sure to come.
