The 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo was and still is a rocket ship on wheels. With a 415 horsepower 3.6L 6 cylinder turbo engine, all wheel drive, and a $114,700 MSRP, this car really stands out in a crowd.
I was contacted by a member of autopia.org to detail this car. He wanted a full detail and to get rid of some swirls. When I showed up at his house on day one of this detail and did my initial inspection of the vehicle I was amazed! This is probably the best maintained vehicle I have ever detailed. I was really impressed at the lack of marring, swirls, and RIDS (random isolated deep scratches). The Porsche was very, very lightly swirled. The worst swirling was on the taillights. The headlights were the worst part of the car, but nothing I couldn’t handle.

I’d say the headlights really turned out well, what do you think?
I wish I would have gotten a before of the Porsche emblem, but it was really bad so I pulled out the M105 and got to work by hand. It turned out great!
And now for some afters!
Thanks for looking!
