The Gunther Werks® "Project Tornado" is a unique car, paying homage to the original 993 design and the special moment in Porsche® history it represents, with most of the 911 parts redesigned from the ground up and improved upon in both technical capability and design. Bringing this history into a new generation of carbon fiber, with meticulous attention to detail in both design and performance, made starting his build an easy decision for Tom.
This remastered Porsche 993 raises the bar for any restomod project, with the Gunther Werks teams' masterful use carbon fiber for the entire body, cockpit, steering wheel (and much more), and brilliant engineering and design, meeting flawlessly with a Rothsport Racing 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine providing up to 700 horsepower built by Jeff Gamroth and team.
Rarely has undeniable attraction met with hypercar performance with such elegance. Everything about Project Tornado is intentional...gorgeous body lines designed with innovative aerodynamic and intake/cooling features. Tom elected to include a two-tier spoiler in his build, designed to optimize down-force, while cooling off the engine and its turbos. With many other unique options, there is no mistaking the goal of this project: An Elegant Weapon.
