A French firm unveils the retro V8 Porsche 928 restomod Car News

A French restoration company has unveiled its vision for the Porsche 928, with redesigned bodywork and a modern, technological interior.

The restomod, which was built by Nardone Automotive of Aix en Provencebears a clear visual resemblance to the 1977 Porsche but features an all-carbon fiber body.

It also gains bespoke lights front and rear, as well as a set of 18-inch wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport 5 tyres.

Under the hood is a 400hp V8 petrol engine mated to a modern ECU, a six-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential.

An electronic suspension with adaptive control, adaptive electric power steering and more powerful brakes are also part of the configuration.

Inside, the restomod gets Alcantara and Foglizzo leather and has been updated with the addition of Porsche’s latest Classic Management (PCCM) infotainment system, complete with Apple CarPlay and connected to a premium audio system.

Nardone says the restomod 928 has the characteristics of a “refined and exciting grand tourer that combines comfort, performance and contemporary luxury”.

“The elegance and class of the 928 is why I have been obsessed with this car since a young age. Ignored by many, once you’ve driven it you won’t come back,” said company boss Thierry Nardone.

“This combined with my passion for the restomod movement gave me the idea to create a perfect little sister for all beautiful [Porsche] 911 restaurants there.

“Now that we’re out in the open, I’m looking forward to the next chapter: getting the car on the road and bringing all the transaxle enthusiasts like us together.”

The car will debut in Milan on Wednesday before heading to the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​later this month.

Its price and production figures have yet to be revealed, but Nardone Automotive said the first deliveries would be made in 2024.
