The Porsche 911 Turbo by Daniel Arsham

Emanuele D'Angelo

After two years of research, production development Daniel Arsham today unveiled his new Porsche 911 Turbo version.

The car is a 1975 model, a version with extraordinary power, especially thanks to a turbocharged supercharger. Since its market launch in the model year 1975, the 911 Turbo became the top model of the 911 range (at the beginning also called 930 internally).

Daniel Arsham has created a unique version for his second collaboration with the German car manufacturer.
The car has been rebuilt from scratch, using an original ’86 911 Turbo (930), every aspect of the car has been customized.

The exterior of the car features an elegant white paint finish with black tonal decals for racing cars, including Arsham Studio and Dior vinyls. The Fuchs shaped wheels are produced by Matt Crooke of Fifteen52 and contain an Arsham Studio monogram with cross-hatching that pays tribute to RSR’s iconic 1974 magnesium alloy wheels.

The interior strictly in Italian leather was made by Objects For Living. The upholstery is embellished by the leather steering wheel personalized with the writing “Porsche-Arsham” and by the aluminum Turbo door sills. The custom hand-painted pressure gauges in the dashboard refer to a design that Porsche created only for the 930 Japanese, all filtered through the design department of Studio Arsham. The engine and turbo transmission have been removed and completely rebuilt.

Porsche together with Arsham studio took a real plunge into the past, giving birth to a jewel.
