This story began in the 80s, when Stéphane Vrinat, the supervisor of the project Typ901, is getting more and more passionate about sport cars. These years brought to the world the «sacred monsters» of the car industry – Ferrari F40 and Porsche 959.
At that time Stéphane noticied, that the philosophy of the German brand suits his idea of a sport car : effiicency, durability, reliability and above all some sort of modesty, when compared with the Italian brands .
Our friend had to wait for more than 25 years to see his dreams come true!: «the new century, caused the swift price reduction of my favourite model. ¡In France, it was easy to get a 930 in a very good shape for aprox. 20 000 €! I quickly found my happines in Paris, a 930 Turbo, built 1986, with a milage of 125 000 km and, of course, in «Indio RED » with a black interior. I bought it from Barcelona, by phone, without even seeing the car . Craziness ¡ At that moment my only concern, was if this turbo engine with SO HIGH milage, would still work fine.»
My first 930. |
It has began, within some years I had 3 different 930s , 4 gears, (including one cabrio), one 930 5 gears, one RUF BTR, one 3.0 SC targa, various 3.2, two 993 TT, one 928 GTS, two 993 cabrio... until this crucial moment, when, in 2014, to start this new project - Typ901, I had to sell my daily driver, fantastic 993 Carrera 2 Cabrio... Red Indian. From that very moment I only focus myself on purchases of parts, tools, machinery... and restoration projects, that will make this Typ901 project possible. Now we have a team of 6 profesionals, working 100 % of their time on the restoration of classic Porsche. We are able to respond to any request- car body work, mechanics, electrical circuit, interior restoration.
