If you’ve been reading some of our recent articles, the unveiling of the Porsche Cayman GT4 Rallye was a big announcement. It marks the return of the German automaker to its rally racing days and it’s exciting. Now we welcome a vintage specimen that underwent a remarkable transformation that results in pure classy nostalgia. What makes this restoration extra special is the participation of the original manufacturer. The result is a spectacular Porsche Carrera GT overhaul that doesn’t hold anything back.
Looking at this beautiful supercar and its hard to imagine that it made its debut around 15 years ago. So technically speaking, this already qualifies as a vintage model. Yet, it’s possible to mistake it for a recent release thanks to remarkable efforts of the folks from Porsche Classic.
This challenging restoration highlights out the eye-catching design of the Carrera GT, albeit with some subtle difference. It now sports an exclusive Oak Green Metallic coat. This new color was not an available option during its original launch. Other than the eye-catching paintwork, it now wears four bespoke BBS magnesium wheels with an extra touch.
In order to achieve the perfect look for its polished rim ring, the team followed a different approach. To keep the wheel structurally sound, a layer of silver with a special coating of lacquer was necessary. This alternative engineering process ensures that everything is resistant to oxidation. Equally important is the 350 hours spent by the shop to recondition all of the carbon fiber components of the Porsche Carrera GT.
