It is a particularly advanced restomod that the British company Theon Design unveils in October 2022. This Porsche 911 type 964 underwent a complete restoration before being customized to measure for a Chilean customer. It receives a carbon fiber body, benefits from a semi-active suspension and above all sees its flat-six engine evolve.

With its Viola Metallica color, this C001 signed Theon Design is reminiscent of a 911 marketed in 1993 for the 30th anniversary of the German coupé. The restomod is perched on 17-inch Fuchs rims. It also receives electric power steering, a valve exhaust with four outlets and a brake system based on carbon discs. A ducktail type spoiler is present at the rear of the car.

Weighing 1,164 kilos, the Theon Design C001 is therefore powered by an air flat-six whose displacement goes from 3.6 to 4.0 litres. The power reaches 405 horsepower for 476 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox and a limited-slip differential. The gear lever is taken from a Carrera RS.

On board this 001 precisely, the finish is particularly neat. There is patinated and purple leather, especially on Recaro Club Sport bucket seats. Carbon fiber is also present, especially on the center console. A magnetic smartphone holder is present, so as not to distort the dashboard with a screen that is too modern. And the car is equipped with a Focal audio system.

The price of this Theon Design C001 is set at 380,000 pounds sterling, or around 432,795€ at the time of writing these lines. This price does not include the amount needed to buy the donor car, a Porsche 911 type 964 Carrera 4.
