This minty green 911 Carrera embodies everything we love about the Euro scene. It’s not an all-out show car but is driven on the regular and breaks necks like a supermodel with its smooth body, ultra-plush interior and hardcore stance. Simply put, this 964 is what clean Euro styling is all about!
The mastermind behind the build is none other than Brian Henderson, one of the founders behind Rotiform. Four years ago Rotiform was nothing but a business idea; however, Brian along with longtime friend Jason Whipple have shaped the brand as one of the coolest and well-known wheel companies in the scene. They’ve also been popular with the custom wheel crowd, rebuilding old wheels to pimp status—we speak from experience!
But back to this 964, this is Brian’s baby. And unlike 99.9% of project cars in States, this Porsche is beyond this world—well, beyond North America at least. While originally purchased and driven by Brian in California, the car endeavored on an epic journey to Europe. It was put on a shipping container and delivered to the UK where it was received by Porsche tuner Milestone71 who became the caretaker for the build. In a few weeks time, Milestone71 along with a few other partners would take the 911 from zero to hero. The goal was to debut the car at the annual Wörthersee Tour—an enormous European car festival in Austria 950-miles away from Great Britain. You can imagine everyone involved had their work cut out for them…
Milestone71 kicked things off by ensuring the aircooled 3.6-liter six would be able to survive the long journey. Virtually every part in the motor was refreshed, plus they added headers and an exhaust to give the car a little more growl.
But the exterior and interior are what really put Brian’s car on a level we haven’t seen in the Porsche world. It’s got a new-school Euro look with a slammed static drop on H&R coilovers, plus custom-built mesh wheels—Rotiform’s of course, duh! The fenders were pulled and smoothed while finer details like the license plate recess and tow hook holes were shaved. StyleHaus was responsible for the exceptional body work along with the car’s respray in Peppermint green—an OEM Porsche color keeping the build OG.
The interior is just as juicy with everything from the dash, steering wheel, RUF shift knob, door panels and carpet retrimmed by Plush Automotive. The entire cockpit is a bed of leather and Alcantara—even the über-rare Recaro A8 seats and rollcage are reupholstered. We could just roll around naked in this car. Just kidding Brian, but you guys get the picture—this interior is flawless!
When the build was coming to an end, Brian hopped on a flight to London and made history. In total, he drove the car 2,400 miles across England, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and Austria before it was loaded on a container and delivered back to Southern California. Oh yeah, we also can’t forget Brian pounded on the car on Europe’s finest roads which included two laps around the legendary Nürburgring and pushing the car 165mph on Germany’s autobahn.
How many of us can say we’ve done anything as cool or close to this? Slim to none. Well played, Brian.
