1995 Porsche 993 Carrera Custom “Tic Tac”


Project: 993 “Tic Tac” based off of a 1995 Carrera 2 coupe.

Before tearing down the vehicle to begin, we started with our CryoDetail(R) dry ice cleaning process. This allows us to remove all debris, grease, grime, anything that has attached itself to the underside of the vehicle since it first hit the road. Once we perform this, we are able to see and have a better understanding of what components may need replacement or corrections. It also provides us with a beautiful undercarriage and reduces the amount of man hours needed to disassemble everything to clean. See more at www.cryodetail.com 

Exterior: The exterior of the vehicle is the original narrow body 95′ Carrera 2 coupe. Originally painted in silver, it had seen better days but was in overall good condition. The color chosen was a 70’s Gulf Orange and a few other aesthetics such as RS splitter, side rockers and a classic duck-tail. Doors, hood, rear deck lid and all glass removed were removed so a complete color change could be done properly. The undercarriage was first prepped and painted after front and rear assemblies were removed in order to apply the Gulf orange paint underneath. Once the undercarriage was complete, it was re-assembled and the vehicle sent to the bodyshop for exterior prep work and paintwork.

Interior: The interior features a few enhancements while retaining the classic aircooled “retro” Porsche looks. Everything inside was redone minus the factory grey carpet and headliner, which were in great condition when the vehicle arrived to begin. The color scheme was to stay with the grey the vehicle already had, but re-do everything with fresh leather, orange stitching to match the Gulf orange exterior and combine it with orange & black houndstooth.

Brakes, Suspension & Wheels: The original shocks and springs were removed and tossed.
