2005 Porsche 911 Carrera | Trash to Flash

Not every build involves a six-figure budget.

This 2005 911 Carrera was purchased with a catastrophic engine issue, a few dents and dings, plus a hole in the front bumper that needed repair. The interior, which shown ok compared to the rest of the car, also needed a refresh after nearly 13 years on the road.  Which was originally going to be a quick flip, one small budget and a few build ideas later, turned into the owner thinking it would be a great daily driver for his wife.

The team at Kelly-Moss began by sourcing a low-milage replacement engine and going over all touch points while the motor was out. For some extra pep and a little grunt, a Fabspeed Exhaust plus K&N filter were added to get the Carrera breathing a bit better. For the corners, AST / Moton Dampers / Michelin tires were added to not only give the car a more aggressive look, but also increase road feel in turns while increasing ride comfort at the same time. Adding a lighter set of wheels around all corners and a custom satin Wine Red wrap was installed in-house completed the look!

The turnaround on a refresh build like this is very quick and is an ultra-affordable solution for adding new life into your ride. While we know most cars won’t need a full motor replacement, suspension, wheels, tires, and / or a wrap can make your car feel and look like new again!
