Project Porsche 914 | First Teardown | Photo Gallery + Video
Words & Photography Luke Ray.
The fine folks at Ktec Autohaus in Perth got started tearing the Porsche 914 project down last weekend. The car arrived in there after it's journey from the UK a couple of months ago, so I made the trip from here in Melbourne over to the west to document some aggressive dismantling over two days.
The basics of the next steps are... Once the Ktec guys have stripped the whole car of all parts, the shell will take a trip over here to Melbourne where Ryan Whitling at RAW Body Design & Fabrication will take the reigns. Ryan will be working on panel work and then hand-fabricating various custom parts, including brand new front and rear bumpers. The design of the car is slowly taking shape as you can see through a handful of sketches shown via the #projectfuel14 Instagram tag that we're using for the build. When Ryan's all done, the car will head back over to Ktec in Perth for a ground-up build.
The final, slick design sketches will be shown in the next blog post early next year. For now, have a look at the timelapse and image gallery below to get a bit of an idea of how things went on the weekend.
A big thanks to Ktec for having me hang around the shop poking cameras around and, of course, for all their superb work. I'm very excited to be having the car built by a world-class Porsche restoration workshop. If you haven't seen Ktec's work, head over to the projects section of their website for a taste.
