993 Remastered by Gunther Werks
993 Remastered by Gunther Werks
The 901 GW Exoskeleton is made from the Porsche 993 ‘Carbon Exoskeleton’, in collaboration with Gunther Werks.
Limited to 188 pieces.
California-based Gunther Werks set out to answer a hypothetical question: what if Porsche were to build a 993 GT3RS?
Gunther Werks vehicles have since become synonymous with modern and respectful homage of Porsche 993’s iconic heritage – a high-performance, bespoke vehicle paying homage to the naturally aspirated Porsches of a quarter-century ago.
Developed in close collaboration with Gunther Werks founder and CEO Peter Nam, this ultra-limited edition timepiece has been designed to capture the unique blend of rugged beauty and superlative performance that characterizes all Gunther Werks creations.
The 901 GW Exoskeleton incorporates recycled carbon fiber from the Carbon Exoskeleton Commission, Gunther Werks’ only fully exposed carbon fiber vehicle.

When form meets function
The Carbon Exoskeleton is Gunther Werks’ only fully exposed carbon fiber vehicle, and gives a rare glimpse of what lies beneath the exquisite paint job you usually see.
Based in Southern California, Gunther Werks was founded by Mr. Peter Nam on the principles of passion, performance, and a drive to embed modern technologies into a classic masterpiece.
The Gunther Werks transformation entails a modern interpretation of Porsche’s last air-cooled 911, the 993.
Regarded by many as the zenith of the 911, the Gunther Werks mission is to retain the driving experience offered by the original car, while evolving its DNA and performance to new heights.
The raw carbon fiber – as beautiful as it is strong – is painstakingly hand laid, with every seam and pattern aligned with absolute precision. The result is unlike anything you’ve experienced before. Starting its life as a Carrera C2, the only remaining original components are the 993 tub and doors.
Yet Gunther Werks vehicles are built for more than just showing off to the Porsche-obsessed. With the incomparable Randy Pobst behind the wheel, the Porsche 993 Remastered by Gunther Werks clocked a lap time of 1:30.99 at the Laguna Seca Raceway to become the fastest road-legal air-cooled Porsche ever to grace the legendary track.
During the restomod process, Gunther Werks strips each vehicle back to its frame before dressing it in their own carbon fiber bodywork.
Once this is complete, the car is fitted with a 4.0 L naturally aspirated air-cooled engine, hand-built and meticulously tuned by Rothsport Racing to develop over 400 bhp and 330 lb/ft.
Gunther Werks provided us with carbon fiber from the Carbon Exoskeleton build process, which we subsequently granulated and reforged with new carbon fiber to produce the visible middle section of the 901 GW Exoskeleton’s case.
The use of recycled components in the case itself, as opposed to the dial, marks a departure from our usual way of working.
Remastering the 901 Collection
The REC x Gunther Werks project was a two-year undertaking that perfectly illustrates both companies uncompromising approach to quality, details and finishing.
Featuring a certified Swiss-made chronograph, a fully in-house developed 6-piece case structure including recycled carbon fiber and a brand new dial layout in an arresting color scheme, this timepiece was a real labor of love of which we are extremely proud.
The 901 GW Exoskeleton simultaneously represents an all-new platform for the 901 Collection. Since its introduction in 2017, the 901 Collection has featured Miyota-based movements in 6 different limited edition models. With these all but sold out, our vision for the 901 GW Exoskeleton project was to take the 901 Collection to the next level.
The 901 GW Exoskeleton will be a hit with both car and watch enthusiasts alike thanks to its striking looks and sporty chronograph functions, conceived to mirror the esthetics of the vehicle from which it was made. The extra-wide double-calf leather strap features an Alcantara top inlay and is designed to fit comfortably on any wrist.
Splitit installment payments at 0 % interest: How does it work exactly?
Splitit allows you to split the total payment over a maximum of twelve months using your credit card. This service is free, involves no credit checks or applications, and means you can choose to split your payment into monthly installments.
To use this payment method all you need a credit card with a sufficient amount of available credit. Splitit authorizes the total order value—but don’t worry, this is not taken in full when you complete the purchase. At the time of shipping, only the first installment will be charged to your credit card. The remaining balance will be held on your credit card until the final payment has been made. However, a payment authorization for the outstanding amount of your purchase will be held during the full payment period.
After each monthly payment, the amount held from your available balance will be reduced to the new remaining balance (the held amount might appear as “pending”). To ensure that the authorization of your credit card is valid for the entire payment period, the authorization will be renewed every 21 days.
Are there any extra fees involved?
No, this is an interest-free payment method with no additional fixed fees, service fees, interest, or hidden fees of any kind.
Which credit cards does Splitit support?
You can pay using Splitit with a Mastercard or Visa card. Debit cards, American Express and pre-paid cards are not accepted.
Do I have to maintain the required available credit amount on my credit card?
Yes, you must maintain a sufficient amount on your credit card for both the monthly payment and for the full outstanding amount of your purchase during the full period of the plan. The authorized amount will be charged only in the event that a monthly payment is declined (the authorization hold might appear as “pending” on your credit card bill).
What happens if I return the product?
If you decide to not keep the ordered item(s), upon return of the items we will reimburse the installments that have already been paid and cancel the outstanding payments.
When and where can I choose the number of installments for my payment plan?
Installment payments with Splitit can be chosen as a payment option during the checkout process. Here, you can choose the number of installments in your payment plan and view the monthly payment amounts.
