These days you can chuck a stick in Europe and you might hit a company specialising in classic Porsche restomods, and there’s not a single one we wouldn’t love to have parked in the SXdrv driveway. Some of these cars and companies are more well-known than others, and thanks to clever marketing and some amazing products, Singer is probably the most famous. While we spend a ridiculous amount of time online checking out all manner of automotive content, when the Collecting Cars video dropped showcasing the car you see here, it was our first time hearing about Tuthill Porsche. Headed up by Richard Tuthill, the outfit specialises in all things Porsche, from rally to race to restoration and what you see here is all of those skills wrapped up into one amazing machine - the Tuthill Porsche 911K. "There are so many great people in the world building amazing Porsche 911's, its sometimes quite daunting to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in. That said, my experience over the last few years, when combined with an extremely enthusiastic and supportive friend and client, was enough to do exactly that. The idea - to build a simple, light car, beautifully presented but with the mechanical capability to take on anything that is currently out there; old or new. This one is for the drivers and quite honestly, I never imagined it could ever be what it has already become, and we've only just started! Weight is always king and the fun of driving a lightweight car when combined with what I believe to be the most exciting engine I have ever experienced and a chassis that gives one unrivalled compliance on wonderfully diverse backroads has redefined what I thought was possible. I look forward to everyone having a go in it." says Tuthill.
Take a look at the YouTube video that now ranks as one of our absolute favourites thanks not only to the amazing car that is the 850 kg classic Porsche 911 that can rev to 11 000 rpm and that's fitted with all the best lightweight components, but also to the great reactions from Harriss and Tuthill on that final lap. It's not often than Harriss is at a loss for words, and in this video he stumbles more than a few times, and that emotion makes is also want a 911K : Chris Harris Drives The Tuthill Porsche 911K - THE ASTONISHING 11,000RPM LIGHTWEIGHT MACHINE | Collecting Cars
