Air-cooled Porsche 911 perfection

The fantasy of every air-cooled Porsche 911 fanatic became reality with production of the Gunther Werks 400R, which was recently exhibited at the 2017 SEMA show.

Air-cooled Porsche 911: Gunther Werks 400R

Gunther Werks 400R

This incredible machine improves upon the Porsche 993 — the last air-cooled 911 model and greatest Porsche 911 ever made according to hardcore enthusiasts — by adding the latest motorsports technology from the vast Gunther Werks arsenal.

First, the company stripped down a 993 Carrera 2 and replaced most of the body with carbon fiber for significant weight savings and a stunningly beautiful body that is convincingly Porsche. Then, it seriously revamped the naturally aspirated air-cooled engine with race-worthy components to generate 400 horsepower and 330 ft-lbs of torque for truly exhilarating performance.

These major modifications, together with a customized manual transmission, enhanced suspension and much more, deliver everything an air-cooled Porsche 911 fanatic could dream of. Gunther Werks will create just 25 of these dream machines that will sell for a little over half a million US dollars ($525,000) each.

Enthusiasts with more down-to-earth Porsche 911 fantasies can find ample fulfillment in the Japanese used car market, where fantastic used models are available at surprisingly reasonable prices from Japanese used car auctions and specialist dealers. With a little help from Japan Car Direct, enthusiasts have found, purchased and imported numerous Porsche 911s from Japan including the following:

1997 Turbo (993)
The pinnacle of air-cooled Porsches and obsession of hardcore purists, this model was the last of the air-cooled Porsches and the last of the handbuilt 911s.

2004 Turbo Cabiolet (996)
This was the 911 model that left air-cooled engines and classic styling behind. It delivers supreme comfort and performance at a very reasonable price.

1987 3.2 Carrera
Porsche’s best selling 911 ever, this model had the right looks, performance, reliability and price tag to steal people’s hearts and wallets.

1989 911 Turbo (930)
From raised round headlights to dramatically extended rear wheels and big rear spoiler, this classic model has a distinctive personality that attracts the eye like a magnet.

All of these models were purchased at reasonable prices in the Japanese market, where just about any model can be found in excellent condition. If you dream of owning a Porsche 911, contact Japan Car Direct.

  • 5 star review  Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.

    5 star review  Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.

    5 star review  Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.

  • 5 star review  Yoshi and team were patient in helping me find the right car (green 2016 Prius 4WD) and get me through the process. Flawless service, prompt response to communications, on delivery the car was better than expected, very close to new looking. Their recommended partners for shipping and entry into NZ were on the ball too. Highly recommended! Pro tip: don't mess around; decide exactly what you want, then bid to win.

    5 star review  I had been toying with the Idea of importing a Land Cruiser from Japan for a while and to be honest was quite hesitant about doing so, as the process for a first timer seemed quite daunting. Mathew at JCD made the whole process SUPER EASY! Been a pleasure dealing with him and was kept informed every step of the way and super fast communication kept the whole process stress free! Thanks again Mathew and I'm looking forward to the next Cruiser! Cheers!!

    5 star review  I was daunted by the prospect of purchasing a vehicle overseas. Mathew was right there to offer direction and assurance along the way. He was quick to respond and most importantly, his word was good. Everything came to pass as he advised. The only point that went differently from his anticipation was the duty tax, which inherently has room for interpretation and may depend on the port of delivery. Would I go to Mathew and JCD again? Absolutely! With his help I obtained a suzuki carry with 8k miles, 4wd hi/lo w/ diff lock, in excellent condition, for a total of 5k from auction to driveway--tremendous value in my estimation. Thanks Mathew, the little truck is a fine addition to the farm. My kids, and my wife, love to drive it:)

  • 5 star review  Mathew at Japan Car Direct has been a HUGE help and continually went above and beyond with assisting me. It was my first time bidding on vehicles at auction and having them shipped to the US. He even helped me arrange a mechanic in Japan to do some work on the Hiace I purchased so that it would arrive in the US in tip top shape and be ready to hit the road. I look forward to doing more business with Mathew in the future and you should too!

    5 star review  I was totally clueless and was having a really hard time finding someone that I felt I could trust to help me with these auctions. A couple folks recommended Mathew over at JCD and I very reluctantly reached out. Yeah, I have trust issues. Dude put me at ease and really walked me through the whole process. After a couple months I didn’t end up buying a vehicle, but that’s on me. When I changed my direction, Mathew helped me wrap things up and wished me well. I have zero reservations about reaching out to these guys or recommending anyone else to do so. Very helpful, knowledgeable, prompt and everything I needed. You won’t be disappointed.

  • 5 star review  Discovered KEI vehicles about a year ago and spent many hours searching the internet in hopes of finding an affordable van state side, to no avail. That is until I sent a message to Mathew at JCD. He was quick to respond, answered way too many of my silly questions, and worked diligently to find the right van for me. He is thorough, clear, and timely. Made the process simple and enjoyable. I am more than excited to work with him again. I highly recommend the service these gentlemen provide.

    5 star review  Matt made importing a few mini trucks for our farm a breeze. Super easy to deal with and transparent with all the details involved in bidding and winning auctions, the import process, and everything in between.

    5 star review  My truck had been stolen and Matt was helping me bid on mini-trucks to replace it. Of course once we started bidding the truck was recovered, but Matt was upfront and very helpful both getting into and out of our auction based relationship. I would not hesitate to work with JCD again!

  • 5 star review  I worked with Mat and i believe i couldn't have done any better. This was my first time dealing with importing, Mat was so patient and helpful through this purchase. I also feel he got me the best deals, i have since the first purchase made two more and will continue to do business with Mat.

    5 star review  I purchased three vehicles from auction with Matt, he made it extremely easy and was available whenever I needed him throughout the entire importing process. This is not the last time I will be dealing with them. I plan to order more vehicles in the near future! If your looking for a trustworthy company to order vehicles through I highly recommend JCD!
