Artist Daniel Arsham x Porsche
A racy, retro and creative refresh for a classic model.
Daniel Arsham is again driving an artistic collaboration with Porsche, delivering a unique piece of famed ‘80s machinery.
Having previously designed an eroded 911 model for his Future Relics series, Arsham and Porsche return with a new project that, after two years of research, sees the complete overhaul of a 1986 930 Turbo.
The sports car has been given a racy refresh, treated to a lick of white paint and a hand painted livery influenced by the 1980 935 K3 car that competed in Le Mans as sponsored by then fledgling Apple Computers.
Elsewhere, notable black decals associated with Arsham Studio and Snarkitechture and his work with both Dior feature, while Fuchs-shaped rims contain a crosshatched Arsham Studio monogram – a nod to the iconic magnesium alloy rims of the 1973 RSR.
The interior is fitted with two tones of Tokyo-based furniture outfitter Objects for Living’s heavyweight stonewashed canvas, with premium Italian leather by Porsche. It’s also here you’ll find a custom leather Porsche-Arsham steering wheel and aluminium turbo door sills.
But what of the engine? Well, Arsham ensured the 930A was restored to almost factory standards, while increasing the bore size on the pistons and powder coating select parts in ‘Arsham Studio green’.
