SEMA 2015 Spotlight: 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2

Artist Jon Sibal's RWB 964, fresh from its debut in the H&R Springs booth

Nov 9, 2015

Many of you know the name Jon Sibal for his artist renderings of concept and project vehicles, some even featured in Super Street’s print edition (remember this show-stopping MX-5?) Others may know the man for his penciling skills for various comic book titles in the DC universe. What some may not know is the guy is a legit enthusiast, and like many of us, has car dreams he’d like to one day fulfill – such as building this Nardo Gray RWB/RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF widebody 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.

The project came together quickly in the run-up to the 2015 SEMA Show, mainly because H&R Springs wanted to debut the 964-generation 911 in its booth. While the sports car is far from complete, Sibal was able to get finished the first phase of the build, which consisted primarily of exterior upgrades but also dipped into chassis setup, interior mods, engine performance and other areas, as you can see below:

Sibal tells us more is to come, including additional powertrain work and an interior makeover. Frankly, though, if this is as far as he goes, we’d be perfectly happy with the build; we know for certain it was one of the standout Porsche of SEMA 2015, and that’s saying a lot considering how much RWB was represented at the event. Enjoy our gallery from a super-quick, somewhat impromptu photo shoot, and be on the lookout for more updates on this jaw-dropping project car.
