The Aimé Leon Dore Porsche 356
Porsche and Aimé Leon Dore have collaborated for the third time to release a bespoke 1960 Porsche 356B. This project follows the Type 964 911 Carrera 4 restoration presented at the Jeffrey Deitch Gallery in 2020 and the previous collaboration on the 911 SC in 2021.
The exterior has undergone a series of modifications including a full color change to Midnight Blue, the removal of both front and rear bumpers, the installation of fog lights, and the conversion to disc brakes on all four wheels. Brushed aluminum wheels have been adorned to white wall tires and a hand painted gold crest finishes the front fender. On the interior, Midnight Blue leather seats are finished with tonal embroidery and a complementing tartan plaid. The seatbacks and floor mats are finished in matching Midnight Blue alpaca. The hand painted gold leaf accents carry into the interior and the installation of the carrera 2 steering wheel define the subtle details that make this vehicle unique.
The presentation of the Aimé Leon Dore Porsche 356 is set to take place during the reopening of the Aimé Leon Dore flagship store at 224 Mulberry Street on May 5th.
