Well, it may be worth attempting a Fifteen Eleven Design Porsche 914.
Again, however, lots of that would be anticipated in a restomod job – its the details that mark the Fifteen Eleven car out. Fifteen Eleven are determined this will occur in 2021 however, MD Chris Mellors stating: “All too often we hear of graphic renders being produced with no intent of being developed, but here at Fifteen Eleven Design all our efforts are put into making sure any principles are brought through to completion”. No rate yet, of course, but do not pretend like you arent just a little bit interested; and if you arent, see what Fifteen Eleven has actually done already with its Ford Escort Speedster and E-Type – that ought to assist …
All of us know the sort of competence an appropriate motorsport arm can bring to the execution of a restomod – see the current Singer Vehicle Design task, which was built by Tuthill. What if you do not have the millions needed for a bespoke Singer reimagination? Well, it may be worth attempting a Fifteen Eleven Design Porsche 914.
Fifteen who now? Based in Derbyshire, Fifteen Eleven is the timeless spin-off of Mellors Elliot Motorsport.
It is rather the engine transplant that Fifteen Eleven is doing, though; out goes the standard 914 flat-four or flat-six – maximum output 110hp – and in goes the 3.4 from the Gen 2 987 Cayman. That makes a rather more significant 295hp; allied to the Caymans six-speed handbook, it needs to lead to a substantial uplift in 914 for performance.
Undoubtedly, Fifteen Eleven intend on doing a terrible lot more to its 914 job than simply dropping in a newer flat-six. The body has received bespoke T45 structural reinforcement, and everything else you would wish to see updated has actually been: suspension architecture has actually been snatched from the Cayman also, though with adjustable coilovers to further enhance it; Brembo four-piston calipers clamp bigger, grooved discs; broader Michelin PS4 tires nestle under more comprehensive carbon fibre arches; theres even an active rear ducktail spoiler.
Again, however, great deals of that would be anticipated in a restomod task – its the information that mark the Fifteen Eleven cars and truck out. Like having daytime running lights designed to evoke the Moby Dick 935, the clear Targa roof to “give a sense of open-top driving all year round” and a complete redesign of the bulkhead and fuel tank for a more accommodating interior. It sounds like a quite thorough task.
Ah, youre thinking, however these are just renders – everyone can make a car look good with adequate time at a PC. Fifteen Eleven are determined this will occur in 2021 however, MD Chris Mellors saying: “All frequently we hear of graphic renders being produced with no intention of being built, but here at Fifteen Eleven Design all our efforts are put into making certain any ideas are finished to completion”. Which is encouraging. Apparently the chassis work is now total, which seems like a lot of the tough work done, and now the group is starting a “really exciting phase of the project”. Orders are being taken now, with right- or left-hand drive possible. No rate yet, of course, however dont pretend like you arent simply a little bit interested; and if you arent, see what Fifteen Eleven has done currently with its Ford Escort Speedster and E-Type – that ought to assist …
