Based on the final air-cooled generation of Porsche’s 911—the 993—the Gunther Werks 400R is something of the ultimate 911 restomod, rivaled only by the likes of Singer. Wrapped in custom carbon fiber bodywork and weighing 2,677lbs at the curb, the 400R is powered by a naturally-aspirated 4.0L flat-six from Oregon’s Rothsport that’s mated to a Getrag G50 six-speed transmission and makes a cool 431hp and 312ft-lbs of torque. The 400R is limited to only 25 units in total, the latest of which to leave the Southern California tuning outfit is the “Mexico Blue Commission.”
The project blends the mid-to-late ‘90s era 993 with a host of modern aesthetic and performance updates, with contemporary components and amenities and a wider stance paired with flared fenders modeled after the 1970s 993 GT2 Evo. The interior is nothing short of a work of art, with houndstooth and carbon fiber seats, all carbon interior panels, a billet key and shift knob, Mexico Blue instrumentation, an Alcantara steering wheel, and blue accent stitching throughout. Other noteworthy details include top-shelf JRZ suspension, 18” alloy wheels, and bespoke LED projector headlights.
