Porsche 911 LuftAuto

Luftgekuhlt is a brand founded by two-time Le Mans class winner Patrick Long and creative director Howie Idelson to pay tribute to all air-cooled cars in the Porsche world. The brand recently released a special car designed for a special purpose (it was auctioned for $275,000 at the Autumn Leaves Project, a charity dedicated to pancreatic cancer research). Named LuftAuto, the rally-style 911 from 1985 was designed in form and function to be both a daily driver as well as a capable off-roader. Notable features include a rebuilt 3.2-liter engine, a sports exhaust, lightweight Recaro bucket seats, a lifted suspension, off-road lighting, a roof rack with spare tire, new Pirelli P-Zero Rally tires, custom fog lamps with headlight grills, skid plates, and custom powder coated front and rear bumpers. The motivation came from the spirit of the Baja-style desert races that play a significant role in California’s racing history, and the end result is a perfect blend of history and creativity in a stylish design.
