How did your obsession with 911s come about?
N: It started with a few pictures Marcus drew and accessories for Porsche fans that didn't exist anywhere else. He always had very specific ideas about how things should look. It began with just the pictures, then came keychains, pillows, shirts, and fire extinguishers in Porsche colors.
M: Exactly. More than twenty years ago, I bought rolls of fabric with red and green tartan patterns from my Porsche dealer at the factory. I had been thinking for a long time about doing something with them, and in 2018, I started drawing pictures with the fabric as a mat under the project name "11erSucht." Nora kept telling me that we should turn my – or rather, our – passion into a profession to improve my sometimes strained work mood sustainably. So we founded a company and from then on, we pursued our hobby professionally. Of course, it couldn't just be about accessories; we had to bring the real object of desire on board – our own vehicles. So we brainstormed and then built the first 11erCONSTRUCTION 993. That means we restore the vehicles, improve some details, and reinterpret Porsche's design elements in our own way. This results in a car that has its very own character.
N: With good planning, we can complete such a car in about six months. The customer ends up with not just a restored car but a individually designed masterpiece in new car quality. And, thanks to Marcus's leasing experience, we can also offer these vehicles for commercial leasing or hire purchase.
