The House Built for Porsches

The House Built for Porsches.

A San Diego collector and his New York architect have built a sleek living monument to their shared obsession: the Porsche. In this home, even the garage has a spectacular view.

Most people think of the garage as a mundane necessity. Very few would consider it as important as the house itself, but Joerg Ineichen, a family therapist in San Diego and a collector of vintage Porsches, had a compelling reason for thinking just that. He likes to drive what he collects—fast, sporty cars—and “the idea of having them close is very special,” says Ineichen. To realize this idea, he turned to an architect who really got his obsession.

“I’ve always wanted to design a little house with a big garage,” Steven Harris says of the two-story home he created for Ineichen. At 2,500 square feet, it’s modest by today’s standards, though the garages (yes, that’s plural) are anything but; they, too, total 2,500 square feet. The project was particularly close to the New York–based architect’s heart because, like Ineichen, he’s a collector of vintage Porsches. He has about 30, stashed in cities from Denver to Dubrovnik. “I don’t like renting cars,” he says, only half in jest. Harris has driven a 50-year-old Porsche in a Beijing-to-Paris rally, and he recently drove a 356 coupe from Rio to Patagonia. Not surprisingly, it was at a car show that he met Ineichen, an encounter that ultimately produced this auto-centric house.

In addition to the usual streetfront garage, which houses Ineichen’s “everyday” wheels (a 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and a 2006 Jeep Wrangler), a much larger garage one level below the house (reached from the street by a car elevator) acts as a kind of secret storeroom for his collection of pulse-stirring Porsches, including a blue 1957 Speedster, a 1992 964 RS in an eye-popping Rubystone red, and a silver 2004 Carrera GT. This garage— which has a back wall dotted with round windows that offer both copious daylight and a view of the city beyond—is as sleek as the house that sits above it and, for that matter, the classic cars within it.

But the cars, of course, are not the whole story. Ineichen wanted a house where he could entertain friends and family, and where he could take advantage of San Diego’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle. From the street, all you see is a stucco wall, spanning the width of the lot, punctuated by a simple entrance gate. The house (with the larger garage beneath it) sits at the back of the property, separated from the gate by a garden that has a 75-foot lap pool along one side. “You have to walk through the garden to get to the house, so you can’t help but see it,” says Harris, who designed it as an outdoor living space. Ineichen eats breakfast and dinner outdoors beneath one of two catalpa trees, and his home office overlooks the pool, in which he swims regularly—sometimes with his dogs, a Weimaraner and a pit bull.

The front door is meant to blend invisibly into the house’s stucco exterior, but when it’s open, you can see from the street right through the house to the city and the blue Pacific beyond. Streamlined aluminum louvers wrap around the second floor, ensuring privacy without blocking sunlight.

Inside, the living room, dining room, and open kitchen make up one large space that gets full benefit of the view out the back of the house. Each of the three bedrooms upstairs has its own bathroom and is small but comfortable.

“The house had to be understated. It’s my Swiss roots,” says Ineichen, who was raised in Lucerne and came to the U. S. 20 years ago. He wanted the living areas to seem spacious without being big, and modern but warm. The interiors were designed by Lucien Rees Roberts, who runs his own interior- and landscape-design firm in tandem with Harris’s business (the two are married). David Kelly, a partner in Rees Roberts’s firm, designed the garden. Ineichen was so in tune with Rees Roberts’s vision that the only change he made to the designer’s midcentury-modern-accented contemporary scheme, which included a cool color palette and a vintage Italian chandelier above the dining table, was to request a deeper sofa in the living room.

Harris’s projects range from the personal (such as his renovation of the A. Conger Goodyear House, a modernist landmark on Long Island, for the real estate developer Aby Rosen) to the public (the overhaul of Barneys stores in New York and Beverly Hills). But this was “a relative labor of love,” says the architect, who finally got to design a house in which the garage is the centerpiece, and for a client who shares his particular passion. “Like me,” Harris says of Ineichen, “he has only one car with four doors.”

Manthey Racing Builds World’s Fastest 911 GT3 RS

At the Essen Motor Show, Manthey-Racing already presented a very special vehicle to visitors on the Preview Day on Friday. The company from Meuspath in Rhineland-Palatinate has developed a sports car with the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup MR, which will be in long-distance racing from next year is used. At the traditional 24-hour race at the Nürburgring, Manthey-Racing impressed with its predecessor this year and celebrated a class victory. The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup MR is based on the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, which was launched in 2017 for the Porsche one-make cups.

24274068_1981374682151736_8275131678389698560_n

The “Cup MR” presents itself with a modified aerodynamics package with more total output. Together with the twelve-way adjustable ABS system and the wider wheelbase, this results in a long-distance-capable drivability and increased braking performance. Visually, the vehicle mainly characterizes vents on the fenders as well as in the bonnet and xenon headlights with programmable LED spots. A variety of elements such as front bumper, bonnet, fenders, side skirts or engine cover and rear wing are also made of the extremely lightweight carbon fiber fabric carbon. These changes make the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup MR ideal for use on the long haul. Equipped with a 4-liter six-cylinder boxer engine and state-of-the-art racing technology, the vehicle has an output of 485 hp. Optionally, Manthey-Racing offers long-range accessories such as Endurance Harness or Air Conditioning.

The new vehicle of Manthey-Racing GmbH will be exhibited at the Essen Motor Show from 2 to 10 December. Staff members of the company will be informing visitors in Hall 3, booth A101, about the innovations in the new racing car. Manthey Racing also presents ready-to-race products such as boxing gear or hydration systems for racing. Around 500 exhibitors and over 300,000 expected visitors turn Messe Essen into a Mecca for motorsport fans. The first Essen Motor Show was held in 1968 and developed into the largest European stage for sporty vehicles. This year, the auto show is entering its 50th round. Watch the 911 GT3 Cup MR fastest lap video HERE.

Singer Vehicle Design Builds 500HP Porsche 911

Immediately upon its introduction in 1989, the 964 was seen as Porsche taking the 911 in a new direction. It was unveiled in all-wheel drive form, traded torsion bars for springs and shocks, smoothed its bumpers, and gave the model anti-lock brakes and power steering for the first time and as standard features. It was also the first Porsche to feature optional Tiptronic shifting, among other innovations. The new car was still air-cooled and recognizable next to its relatives, but it represented a modernization of the 911; a refined driving experience that coupled an evolution in performance with a greater degree of build quality and driver consideration.

23507443_885771988240239_1139003426860957696_n

Come the present day almost three decades later, and the 964 is again set to be the bearer of great change in the air-cooled community, though it won’t look like it did when it was a new car. Things have changed in the time since. For instance, the 964 is widely considered a classic now, and the renderings pictured here depict a heavily modified version of a 1990 Porsche 911 with more than twice the power than the factory gave it.

23668415_1963446063682497_3156942606286454784_n

What we’re seeing here is the first modified 964 to incorporate the last two years’ worth of work undertaken by Singer Vehicle Design in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering and a  team of consultants and advisors that includes such names as Norbert Singer and Hans Mezger. It began when Singer customer Scott Blattner approached the company to make something special out of his 964 with a focus on lightweight and high performance enhancements. Minimum vehicle weight is said to be 990kg (~2,180lbs).

23507858_301276643707075_2062602157789544448_n

The resulting endeavor saw Singer team up with Williams on something they’re calling a “dynamics and lightweighting study” (DLS), and the most salient outcome of this work so far is the modified Porsche flat-six under the deck lid of this Absinthe example; the car’s original M64 used 3.6 liters to churn 247 horsepower in 1990, but in Scott’s 911 it’s been enlarged to four liters even. Thanks to that extra capacity and the double overhead cam heads developed by Williams, it’s now capable of putting out 500 naturally aspirated horsepower.

23596257_361442970944567_902105417499279360_n

Besides that screaming six, Williams also worked with Singer on the aerodynamics package of the modified Porsche, and with consultation from Norbert Singer, the resulting body and underbody have been optimized through the use of computational fluid dynamics for a blend of aesthetic and performance considerations. From the rear diffuser to the trick roof and rear window sculpting, the surface area has been almost comprehensively altered to make better use of the air flowing over and under it, and this also includes the ducktail spoiler, rear window inlets (which act as a ram-air system to feed the big air-cooled lump in the rear), oil cooler ducting in the front bumper, and the flared arches accommodating the 911’s widened track.

23824637_148863512507841_4634289980334669824_n

In addition to the stretched footprint’s contribution to its roadholding capabilities, the car’s suspension has been upgraded to shed weight, offer more adjustability, and improve the original geometry. And in order to ensure the front seat experience provided by all these mechanical modifications is up to the standards of an ultimate road and track 911, Singer worked with drivers Marino Frachitti and Chris Harris to perfect the driving dynamics alongside the dedicated team at Williams.

23596570_1974551926156877_5373874479598403584_n

Each of the Porsche 911s restored and modified by Singer is based on the unique commissions of their customers, and the cars restored in this program (limited to 75) will be no different in that regard—owners will simply be selecting options from a different range of services than those available on Singer-modified cars in the past. With its own dedicated facility at the Williams campus in Oxfordshire (called “Singer at Grove”) this is a wholly separate program from their other restoration and customization services, and in that vein, Singer founder and Creative Director Rob Dickinson explains that “On a technical level, the study has been fascinating and has resulted in an incredible restoration with the benefit of top drawer resources and modern science. Artistically it has been a second chance to connect with the machine on a new level.”

23824770_100867367362975_8293097908840955904_n

From the perspective of Rob’s development partners on this project, Craig Wilson, Williams Advanced Engineering’s Managing Director, noted: “Being able to work with the classic Porsche 964, applying our expertise in aerodynamics, advanced lightweight materials and vehicle dynamics to optimise performance has been a tremendous opportunity. We are delighted that the restoration of these cars for Singer’s clients will take place here in Oxfordshire.”

23594591_381258328995480_8018093343311396864_n

The Dynamics and Lightweight Study also developed pieces of the offering with industry experts from Michelin, BBS, and Brembo for example, and Scott’s Absinthe-over-Blood-Orange car features bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, 18” forged magnesium monobloc center-lock wheels from BBS Motorsport, lightweight monobloc Brembo calipers and carbon composite rotors, custom damping by EXE-TC, and a magnesium Hewland six-speed transmission.

23734317_1969174393356256_6706850144354041856_n

So this is it, this is the first look at the next level of modified Porsche 911s from the minds behind Singer. Like any restoration to come from the company that’s redefining the term, details are abundant. Inside the Buckminster Fuller-esque cabin structure for instance, is the exposed section of shift linkage underneath the knob with inlaid balsa. The interior is equal parts spartan and indulgent depending on your point of view, and details abound on the outer skin as well; just look at the arrangement of shapes and negative spaces in the taillights alone. We’re obviously excited—what do you think?
