Review of the situation: Experts and the customer meticulously examine the vehicle. On-site in Atlanta, the scope of the required work is discussed and define.
For a full restoration, the vehicle is completely disassembled and all parts are removed from the bodyshell, from the engine to the interior equipment. Craftsmanship throughout: After our specialists have removed the worst corrosion from the bodyshell, they open all the cavities – a necessary step in preparation for the paint removal bath. After the paint removal bath, the condition of the classic vehicle can be clearly determined. If necessary, the initial rough cost estimate will be specified.
To ensure everything runs smoothly, the function and authenticity of the engine and transmission must be carefully checked. If necessary, they are completely disassembled and cleaned. Defective parts are replaced with genuine parts or parts that were replicated based on original drawings. The original measurement values specified by the factory are used as the basis for the engine settings. Its performance is then measured during a test run on the test stand. The results are documented and displayed in a diagram. In this way, the engine and transmission are restored to their original state – both visually and technically.
The frame is precisely aligned on the straightening bench, using frame gauges for the doors and windows that originate back to the production of what is now a classic. If necessary, experienced mechanics reshape deformed areas. Extremely corroded areas are cut out of the body and replaced with new genuine parts. The “trial assembly” that follows is also a painstaking process. The untreated body is completely assembled on the straightening bench. Gap dimensions and functions (such as shutting of the doors and the engine and luggage compartment lid) are checked and adjusted to the optimum setting. The parts are then removed once more so that they can undergo further professional treatment.
All restoration body work is completed in our Stuttgart workshop. The intercontinental project is fully coordinated by the
Protection and beauty: The classic vehicle has never had it so good, even when it was brand new. Today, the bodyshell gets treated to a cathodic dip painting bath. The CDPB ensures that the primer is evenly applied down to the very last cavity. Epoxy resin dissolved in water produces a conductive paint. When an anode is immersed in the bath, the bodyshell acts as a cathode, generating a direct current. This causes paint particles to adhere evenly and securely to the body and to all cavities, providing a high degree of corrosion protection. The complete paint build-up in the original colour now begins. The CDPB and factory re-painting is performed in our Stuttgart facility. The intercontinental project is fully coordinated by the
Where you feel at home: The experts are now ready to openly discuss matters of pure taste. The interior – an affair of the heart. Specialists can treat the interior or completely renovate it using materials of the same high quality as the original materials. Here, your imagination can continue to soar with few boundaries. Our experts will satisfy almost every desire.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
