Vintage car lovers will be delighted to learn that resto-mod workshop Fifteen Eleven is reviving the classic Porsche 914.

Originally released between 1969 and 1974, the Porsche 914 was developed in partnership with Volkswagen and was a precursor to the modern Boxster series. As an entry-level model, the car carried an air-cooled flat-four engine at the time, but Fifteen Eleven has upgraded the engine to the more impressive 3.4-liter water-cooled flat-six from the Cayman, which now gives this resto-mod a whopping 325 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.

Aside from a power upgrade, the workshop also gave the vintage car a few aesthetic modifications. The pop-up headlights have been swapped with a series of LEDs and integrated with turn signals, while a deeper bumper was installed up front. The wheel arches have also been extended, the removable roof panel made transparent, and a new spoiler added to the top of the trunk.

There’s currently no pricing information yet for the Fifteen Eleven Porsche 914, but the company hopes to begin deliveries later this year. Learn more over on the company’s website.
