Gunther Werks’ $525K 400R Upgrade Makes the Porsche 993 Sing Like Never Before
Porsche’s last air-cooled 911 sports car was introduced back in 1993, leaving many purists to consider it the last “real” Porsche to be created.
For all those who miss the glory days, Southern California shop Gunther Werks has just debuted its beautiful 400R, a re-imagined take on the classic Porsche 993. The tuner achieved the difficult balance of honoring the vehicle’s classic look while also making changes to give the vehicle a more modern aesthetic.
Gunther Werks adds new bodywork with redesigned front and rear bumpers to a 993, and opts for wider fenders, a bespoke wing, and a new roof scope for their design vision. The powerplant is a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six that makes 400 horsepower.
The vehicle also boasts a custom six-speed manual gearbox, anti-roll bars, and an upgraded coilover suspension. The 400R received an advanced braking system from Brembo for additional stopping power.
The interior received an update as well, with carbon fiber seats and a number of color and material options for interested customers.
Gunther Werks’ new 400R is available for $525,000, in addition to the cost of acquiring a used Porsche 993.
