SANCHEZ

Sanchez was designed to be a softer take on the “Safari” concept. Developed to be utilized in any road condition and built as a head-nod to Porsche’s steep rally heritage, every improvement was focused on allowing the owner to enjoy the car on a daily basis. Starting with a low mile, one owner SC, the unmolested tub was completely stripped and undercoated prior to the installation of sound and heat attenuation material. This resulted in a “vault-like” environment that was devoid of the creaks and rattles typically associated with a build of this nature. Each suspension component was disassembled and rebuilt or replaced with the goal of additional ground clearance, coupled with great handling and a compliant ride. The entire drivetrain was also rebuilt and refurbished to an “as-new” mechanical standard.
