What’s Porsche’s ‘Project Gold’ all about?

By topgear, 09 August 2018

Ooh, now this is interesting. Porsche, via the medium of video, has begun teasing out information about a new car it is working on. A classic car, restored. It is called the ‘Classic Project Gold’, and we are very interested.

Because it sounds awfully familiar to another famed restorer of classic Porsches whose name escapes us at the minute. Now, Porsche itself – with its infinite resourcing and unfettered access to everything it has ever made – is having a go.

The first teaser clearly shows the body of a 993, so we will assume it is a restored 993. The second video reinforces this because it shows us how Porsche’s classic technicians finished the 993’s aluminium wheels using – and we don’t use this term lightly – frickin’ LAZERS.

The third and latest video shows us some seats. Specifically, a man handcrafting leather seats with a giant ‘Turbo’ badge on the headrest. So, let us assume that this meticulously restored 993 is a Turbo.

Like we said, we are very interested and now want to see more. We shall bring you more as soon as we have it…
