THE AUTOART JOURNEY

By their very nature, the Paul Stephens AutoArt Porsches are forever evolving. We refine our ideas; clients bring their personalities and desires into the mix. Each car is bespoke to its owner and our ‘starting-point’ specifications constantly change with donor availability and new thinking. Browse our past designs, the AutoArt ‘hall of fame’ we are proud makes up our bespoke-built Porsche history.

CLASSIC TOURING SERIES I

The PS Classic Touring Series 1 was based on an 80s 911 making it a dependable daily companion but with the style of a true classic. This has now been replaced by our Series 2 model that faithfully recaptures the appearance of these early cars but is further enhanced for daily use.

RETRO TOURING R SERIES I

The Retro Touring R has been our most successful model to date and the recipe is simple - combine the elegance of the 70s classics, the performance of a 90s RS and features that include ABS, PAS, 2WD or 4WD, manual or tiptronic gearbox and you have probably one of the most enjoyable cars you will ever own. The Touring R formula continues with our revised Series 2 model featuring both technical and visual enhancements.

CLASSIC LIGHTWEIGHT

The Classic Lightweight was a development of our 240C, but with the exact visual appearance of the 911RS from 1973. With its enhanced technical specification, it outperformed an original in every way.

RETRO COUPE AND TARGA

Available in 2WD and 4WD, the Retro series featured ABS, power steering and a 250BHP engine combined with styling cues of the 70s classics. It is a car that really does offer original style with modern features and performance.

240C

The 240C was the first model in the PS range. With 236BHP, uprated brakes and suspension and a kerb weight of under 1000kgs, it outperformed a genuine RS Carrera in every way.

RETRO LIGHTWEIGHT R

The PS Lightweight R was launched in 2005 to wide acclaim at the Porsche Festival Brands Hatch. It featured styling cues from the 73RS, the same kerb weight of a 964RS, but with the performance of a 993RS. This model paved the way for our highly successful Retro Touring R series.

CLUBSPORT

The PS Clubsport was based on our Classic lightweight but developed specifically for trackday and fast road use. In 2017 we launched our new Clubsport with the same ethos of less is more, but in a thoroughly revised package.

SPYDER

A unique one-off car created to show what is possible if you push the boundaries of your imagination. With its aluminium body, simple wrap around cockpit with minimal machined aluminium controls, the PS Spyder was light, sure footed and quick. A perfect example of our sports purpose ethos - less really is more.

RETRO SPEEDSTER

Created for a client who wanted to capture the style of the 70s in a 911 Speedster, something the original manufacture never offered. The car has a unique period style, but because it was required for long distance touring, is actually based on a later 964 Carrera 4 platform.

 

With a strong 250BHP engine, 4 wheel drive, ABS, power steering, air conditioning, cruise control, electric sports seats and a unique convertible Speedster design hood that doesn’t leak in bad weather, this Speedster is genuinely a car for all seasons. Many unique design elements from the original 50s Speedsters through to the 90s examples were incorporated to create a truly unique car.
