Theon Design- a Custom Shop Revives and Refines Classic 911s
Theon Design, based near Silverstone in England’s “motorsport valley” is a custom shop that revives and refines classic 911s using technology formula. It builds not more than three cars per year with ready access to world-class engineering talent and specialist suppliers. Prices start from €415,000 plus the cost of a donor Porsche.
Hawley, an experienced car designer, has a Porsche obsession that started early. “I had a green 930 Turbo—it was the only toy car I didn’t smash-up,” he laughs. “I’ve loved 911s ever since.”
“People always mention the S-word,” says Adam Hawley, co-founder of Theon Design. “But our approach is different to Singer. We refine the air-cooled Porsche 911; we don’t try to reinvent it. These are already fantastic sports cars, after all.”
The “Hong Kong 002” named after the location of its soon-to-be owner, is the new car that is already ready for a test drive. Further down the line, there’s also a new project based on a different air-cooled 911. “We don’t want to stand still,” says Hawley. From where I’ve been sitting, there seems little chance of that.
