I spent a large part of today in touch with friends in the US. Some positive feedback on the new Ferdinand artwork, and interesting discussions with potential Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 buyers stateside*.
Anyway, while chatting over a few features coming up in Ferdinand Magazine, and a potential features trip to the US East Coast later this year, the Porsche grapevine came up and with it, rumours of the demise of Zuffenhaus Racing and Fabrication/Eurowerks Porsche in North Carolina. I was happy to reassure my contact that nothing could be further from the truth: the boys are busier than ever and have just celebrated their ninth year in business (top).
Now with their Porsche 911 RSR brake calipers in full production (above), on sale through Zuffenhaus in the US and TwinSpark Racing in Europe (Twinspark winning races with these brakes), Aaron and Keith are prototyping mega 18″ centre lock wheels for Porsche 911s. Build continues on their Mary Stuart 911 RSR with terrific CNC’d rear arches and spoiler, and the backdated 964 with ’72 oil filler cap and reworked rear suspension. That Mary Stuart car has got Ferdinand feature written all over it!
Lots of things happening at Zuffenhaus Racing and Fabrication in Charlotte, North Carolina. Storing some of my Pelican bargain parts is one of them: going out of business is not! You can keep up with some of their latest mentalness by the combined magic of Facebook and Instagram at the Zuffenhaus Porsche Facebook page, or on the Zuffenhaus Blog.
*To clarify: folks in the US want to buy a Carrera 3.0. I am not selling mine! If you’ve got an original and unmolested LHD C3 to sell for sensible money, get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
