Workshop’s 5001 Porsche 911 Just Might Be The Ultimate 964 Restomod
Vintage Porsche 911s have garnered immense popularity in the restoration world, giving rise to businesses entirely dedicated to their reconstruction. Among these, Workshop 5001, a modest establishment located in Los Angeles, specializes in crafting a reimagined early 911 that seamlessly combines driving excellence with visual appeal.
Henry Catchpole from Hagerty got a chance to get behind the wheel of Workshop 5001. It mixes original and modern with sublime subtlety to create something that still clearly identifies as a 964 but with the performance turned up quite a few notches. At the heart of this build is a 3.9-liter engine that roars with 385 brake horsepower, and while it sacrifices a bit of power due to a single exhaust exit, the singular look is a thing of beauty.
As evident from the video, this car is a captivating masterpiece that manages to distinguish itself in a crowded field of Porsche restomods, including prominent names like Singer Vehicle Design, Guntherwerks, and Tuthill. With a narrow body, a single exhaust, Grigio Scuro paint, yellow fog lights, and a modest ducktail spoiler, it’s a masterpiece of subtlety.
