In pictures: Porsche's 'Project Gold' 993 Turbo.

There's thousands of Porsche 993 Turbo examples out there and, thanks to its newly bestowed continuation chassis number, 'Project Gold' is now just one of many. There's a difference though – this car will go down in history as Porsche's first in-house restomod, a craze made popular by prolific restoration workshops like Singer Vehicle Design.

What makes this particular car so special? Unlike other third party restomodded 911s, this is a brand new car. Registered with a new chassis number, only the body shell was carried over from a donor vehicle, the rest built from new parts manufactured to period specification by Porsche Classic.

Project Gold's name is unsurprisingly derived from its appearance, sporting freshly applied Golden Yellow Metallic paintwork borrowed from Porsche's current 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series colour selection.

The 993's period-correct five-spoke alloys have been repainted too, firstly coated in gold before being dipped in black paint. Laser etching then reveals the thin gold line around the circumference of the alloy.
