2009 Porsche 911 RFS59 Widebody Turbo
This special project was a culmination of a lot of time, money, thought, and hard work.  More than a car, this 2009 Porsche 911 Turbo is a story.  Built as a tribute car to my late father, Robert F. Snodgrass Jr., who was the President and CEO of Brumos Porsche/ Brumos Racing (hence the theme), the car was deemed the name “RFS59”.  Touches were made to the car that we thought he would have liked, and done himself, to build a 934 RSR like, retro but current hot rod.  A seamless mix of old and new, we knew the equation had to be just right to create what we wanted to make.  With the end of the Brumos Era happening now, it is only appropriate that the Red and Blue Stripes are slightly faded to coincide with the Cream White (versus the Carrara White that Brumos Racecars are).  Upon completion, this car has ventured the country, and has been showcased at this past years RENNSPORT REUNION at Laguna Seca, the Magnus Walker MOMO Rally across California, the SEMA show in Las Vegas, all the way back here to Florida where it has toured everywhere from the Concours d’Elegance at Amelia Island, to Daytona for the Rolex 24 Hour.  Receiving Global Coverage, from sources such as Motor Trend, Jalopnik, Excellence, and many other known publicators, this car has seen it’s fair share of spotlight.  The reason behind the car, just made it that much better.

Starting life as 1 of the 227 Manual 2009 Turbos to come to the United States, this car was purchased with the intention of building a car for the SEMA convention 2015.  Mission: Accomplished.  This Turbo is probably the only Cream White 2009 Turbo ever made, so to start with such a rare specimen, made the project special in itself.  Mated with the Sand Beige interior, the color combination prior to the custom aftermarket upgrades was a little bland for most.  I think we were able to fix that problem.  With about a 5 month build time, the goal for the car was to build something that had OEM quality finishing, but obviously utilizing aftermarket parts.  Most, if not ALL, “widebody” cars and “bodykits” are nothing more than a sub par shop riveting fenders onto a car, and painting it to sub standard quality.  In fact, building these cars for years, we have never come across a truly good “aftermarket” job.  This was not even an option for this build.  To deeply modify such a rare and perfect specimen of a 997 Turbo, it had to be perfection, or nothing at all.  The kit was fitted to the car, and every piece was customized and reshaped, to ensure that not only is this the BEST executed Liberty Walk 997 in the country, but also the most unique.  Mostly, because our kit actually fits, and it actually works.  The rear fenders were pushed back 1”, the skirts were extended, the bumpers had extra glass work to close up the pesky seams that pop up on every other build, the fenders were glassed so we didn’t have to run the gross black gaskets, to hide bad gaps.  There are no bad gaps on this car.  It is as OEM looking as it can get.  Everything on the body was thought of, and executed with the most accurate precision, thanks to our partners over at Breitling Autoworks.  As there is too much to list, a mod list (below) is the best way to really tell what has been added to this car.
