Paul Stephens Autoart Clubsport Series II

A Minimalist Restomod Porsche 911

Clubsport Series II Restomod

In 2007 Paul Stephens introduced a lightweight coupé called the Clubsport. Created from the ethos of ‘less is more’, the Clubsport was a very light formidable car capable of showing a clean pair of heels to more modern machinery on a twisty road or circuit. A decade later in 2017, Paul Stephens launched the Series II Clubsport, again inspired by the road-going performance 911s, incorporating performance and styling elements from all eras to create a truly special car, built to order and individual to you.

The Clubsport took you back to an era where electronic aids to help you drive faster had not been considered necessary.

Instead, it has the traditional values of a true performance car featuring lightweight, communicative steering and chassis together with a healthy power-to-weight ratio in all variants to create a formidable road car.

Whilst performance is important, driver comfort is paramount and the Clubsport has been designed with long fast continental road trips in mind. The interior is simple, light and airy, with supportive sports seats set low in the car so you can really feel the chassis beneath you.

The G50 gearbox with correctly spaced pedals for `heel and toe` allow fast easy gear changes, whilst the dials have been re-designed for clearer visibility through the perfectly placed Momo sports steering wheel. The chassis is toned but compliant and features Bilstein sports dampers as standard or fully adjustable KW items for those who prefer to tweak the car further to their own personal preference. Air conditioning and an electric sunroof were available as options.

In true lightweight tradition, the Clubsport was fitted with just two seats, allowing for ample storage of soft bags in the rear. A Touring Package was available as an option and features tilting seats, a rear storage box, and hand-stitched leather panels throughout for a simple but contemporary feel.

Our ethos at Paul Stephens is less means more, so in the lightest variation, we had the kerb weight down to 1,000KGs, allowing the Clubsport to be a serious performer, whichever power option you chose.

All models were fitted with a flat six air cooled engine ranging from the 240 with 240BHP through to a thumping 350BHP in the 350, guaranteed to keep your eyes wide open on your favourite road.

The new Clubsport Series II was designed to foster a deep emotional connection through its visual and raw tactile delights, meticulous engineering and exhilarating, visceral driving experience every time you got behind the wheel.
