Recreations

Breathing new life

Our recreations are built to the highest standard and have been designed with beautiful proportions that optimise the iconic Porsche 911. Using modern design techniques and the latest computer software we have created a modernised classic 911. Every part of the car is updated and modified. The engines can be specified from a ‘standard’ 3.6 L (fully rebuilt) up to a completely upgraded and modified 4.0 L. We are also currently investigating a Hybrid Petrol/Electric all wheel drive Hyper car.

The interior can be wrapped in the finest automotive semi-aniline leather, with bespoke door cards and panels. It’s all about combining the best of the old and new to create a machine that is not only unique and beautiful, but performs beyond all expectations. We can create a bespoke 911 to your specification, modifying every element from interior, colour and materials to engine, suspension and brake upgrades.

Passion for what we do is the driving force of Theon. We are constantly evolving and developing ideas and technologies to recreate the iconic Porsche into something that excites, surprises and that is totally unique.

If you would like further information, including a specification and price list, or to talk about ordering a bespoke car, we would love to hear from you.

Specifications

A world of opportunities

Our engine rebuilds are outsourced to a leading Porsche engine build specialist to ensure we can achieve optimum performance and reliability. All of our Recreation engines have a single mass flywheel and are available with either a 5 or 6 speed Getrag G50 gearbox.

3.6L 285bhp Standard configuration but rebuilt and detailed as new
3.6L SC 400+bhp Same as above but fitted with a Super Charger
3.8L 350bhp Increased displacement with mild tune and increased torque
4.0L 400bhp Full tune with RS crank

The donor car supplied by our customers is a 1989-94 Porsche 911, (964). The cars are fully road legal in their country of origin and will retain the original Vehicle Identification Number, (VIN) and will continue to be registered and licensed in the same way after the conversion.

When the car arrives with us, it will be completely stripped down to its base components and thoroughly checked for previous accident damage or corrosion. The shell will be seam welded to improve torsional rigidity, and then any defects will be repaired. The car is then Enviro-dipped (a more environmentally friendly and less harsh to the vehicle process than conventional acid dipping) to remove all paint and contaminants. Once this process is complete the shell is etch primed to form a protective layer against rust.

The carbon fibre panels that are fitted to our Recreations are extremely high quality ‘pre-preg’ components.

The exterior panels we replace are:

  • Front and rear arches (fenders)
  • Front and rear bumpers
  • Front bonnet (hood)
  • Rear deploying spoiler
  • Roof (optional)

The wiring looms are completely replaced with modified Porsche looms – so you have the reliability of Porsche wiring systems with our own bespoke additions.

The lights are updated, including the addition of Bi-Xenon headlights.

All of the suspension, brakes and steering are upgraded as standard, but can be further upgraded to ceramic brakes and fully adjustable Ohlins suspension.

The exterior of the car can be specified in either one of our chosen 12 colours inspired by Porsche’s of the 60’s and 70’s – or if you have your own preference in mind, we will endeavour to accommodate that too. The bright work on the exterior can either be full chrome or satin finish at no extra charge.

The interior can be further personalised using only the finest semi-aniline automotive leather – whilst we have five preferred colours, we are happy to discuss further colours/patterns with clients. All leather is available with various stitching options, i.e contrast/exterior matched and single or double stitch.

We offer a bespoke interior from a minimalistic ‘stripped-out sports’ to ‘cosseted luxury’ and anywhere in between – but all achieved with the highest attention to detail. The stripped out or luxury feel can also be extended to the luggage and engine bays, where customers can choose between a ‘clean’ painted finish (exterior colour or black) up to fully leather trimmed compartments.

Example interior options – elements can be taken from either ends of the scale to achieve the perfect car for each individual.
