Classic Car Job: Gunther Werks

Gunther Werks is an automotive restoration company who currently remaster the Porsche 993 and turn it into a modern and respectful homage of the Porsche 993’s iconic heritage from a quarter century ago.

Based in Huntington Beach, California, Gunther Werks designs, develops, and delivers the ultimate air-cooled Porsche experience. Employing modern procedures for materials and race-bred components, Gunther Werks specializes in performance restorations of the iconic Porsche 993. Regarded by many as the pinnacle of the 911®, the team at Gunther Werks has worked tirelessly to retain the driving experience offered by the original car, while evolving its DNA.

The company name is inspired by Günther F. Wendt, a German American mechanical engineer with a background working in NASA’s Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Space Shuttle programs. Driven by his words “If I don’t do a good job, I get out. I can’t compromise.” Gunther Werks follows his premise in its focus to perfect every aspect of the car it crafts. Dedication to a final product meant the basic “form follows function” mentality results in a 2,600-pound curb weight, handling characteristics and a power-to-weight ratio that compete with modern supercars, a sculpted body that modernizes a classic design, and an analog driving experience like nothing else. This is the 993 Remastered by Gunther Werks.
