Fifteen Eleven Design brings the Porsche 914 up to date

The English specialist modified the bodywork of a 914 to install it on the chassis of a previous generation Cayman. A vehicle of which he kept the manual gearbox and the atmospheric 3.8-litre flat 6 that he even pushed up to 400 hp!

3 years after the announcement of the project, Fifteen Eleven Design presents the final version of its restomod based on the Porsche 914. And the least we can say is that the result is absolutely fabulous! The English specialist has succeeded in making the small German coupé/cabriolet of the 70s could not be more desirable. To achieve such a result, Fifteen Eleven Design recreated, modified, shortened and widened the body of the 914 as well as the chassis of a previous generation Cayman in order to put the two together.

Flat 6 atmospheric 400 hp

Under this body now made of carbon fiber In reality, therefore, there is a reinforced architecture of the previous generation Porsche Cayman S. A car whose Fifteen Eleven Design has also decided to keep (and improve) the mechanics! The small 4 or 6-cylinder flat engine reaching a maximum of 150 hp from the original 914 has therefore given way to a large atmospheric 3.8-litre flat 6 engine! An engine that the specialist has also pushed up to 400 hp! This block is associated with a 6-speed manual gearbox, as in the modern German coupé.

Improved lighting and braking

Fifteen Eleven Design did not just rework the bodywork and mechanics of the 914. The English specialist also brought the rest of its components into the 21st century, starting with its lighting. The latter now works thanks to LED technology. And behind new 18-inch rims in neo-retro style coated with Michelin Pilot Sport tires now hide 4-piston calipers and a braking system signed Brembo. That should easily stop all that extra cavalry.

Over €400,000!

This Porsche 914 reviewed by Fifteen Eleven Design is available in both left and right hand drive. As for its interior, it received at least as much love as its bodywork and mechanics. Given the astronomical amount of work required to create a single example, this modified 914 by Fifteen Eleven Design is not cheap. The English specialist is indeed asking for a minimum of £350,000, or more than €400,000 at the current exchange rate, to afford one of these little gems! So, what would you opt for, this 914 or several 718 Spyder RS ​​displayed with us from €159,052?
