Barely a few days after Ruf stunned the automotive scene with the bespoke 3.4 RSR, another project makes the headlines. From the German outfit, we shift our attention to the United-Kingdom-based group Tuthill Porsche. It rivals the striking Blau Metallic number from last week with a golden restomod it names the 911 K.
Motorsport enthusiasts will recognize this group’s work on competition-spec machines for both rally and endurance. In fact, this custom 930-generation 911 Carrera is one of several remarkable rides that made a splash at Monterey Car Week 2022.
Perhaps the sheer number of announcements at the time made it fly under the radar, but we know it deserves more exposure. The 911 K is a beautiful machine made even better with the collection of tweaks Tuthill Porsche endows.
Keep in mind, that the team is dead serious when it comes to weight savings. In fact, this coupe tips the scales at only 1,874 lbs. A peek at the 911 K spec sheet shows the use of materials with exceptional strength-to-weight attributes. Carbon fiber, titanium, magnesium, and more are all here.
Tuthill Porsche says the plenum, gearbox cross-member, body panels, seats, steering wheel, and wheels, among others, are crafted out of the composite. Beneath the rear hood is a 3.1-liter short-stroke four-valve engine mated to a magnesium six-speed 915 K transmission unit.
Unfortunately, there is no official mention of the output, but the guesstimates suggest it will easily outclass the competition. The cockpit keeps it simple yet elegant with bespoke embroidery on Ventile and Ultra Fabric upholstery. Tuthill Porsche needs to share more about the 911 K such as the pricing and the number of examples it intends to build.Learn More
