Strosek Driving Design

I know I’m a little behind on finishing the 7 Days of Porsche Tuners series, but I think you’ll find I’ve saved a couple of the best for last.

strosek_porsche_928Today’s tuner is Strosek. Founded in 1982 by Vittorio Strosek (who is still involved with the company today), Strosek Driving Design started with a redesign of the Porsche 928 (pictured to the right) back in 1982. The Strosek Porsche 928 has become a legendary car and set the stage for a long run of customized Porsches, as well as other makes.

The crazy thing is how long Vittorio Strosek has been in the tuning and customization business…almost 40 years! Based on an interview on the web site, he’s planning on many more years at the helm of Strosek Driving Design. It looks like we can expect a lot more from Strosek in the coming years including an ultra high speed car they’re planning to test at Nardo.

As for the real reason for the whole 7 Days of Porsche Tuners series…the cars…I wasn’t able to dig up too many specs on cars from the site. Although the site presents pretty nicely, it’s a bit shy on details and usability. Normally that would be enough to have me take them off the list, but Strosek has been around for so long, I can’t not include them.

Strosek does, however, offer a broad range of customizations for every car in the Porsche lineup. This includes both interior as well as exterior changes. Many of their external treatments are pretty subtle, but some have been pretty wild. Here are a few examples of Strosek cars of both past and present:

  1. I went to the Strosek website, what a cool company. There caliber of work is outstanding.

  2. I wish I had the skills and knowledge to so something like this. It would be a blast to be able to do this to cars. It is a goal of mine to someday purchase a car and rebuild it. Might as well be a Porsche!

  3. i’m impressed with the pics. especially the third down from the top. it looks like they tried to make it look like that porsche from the james dean photo

  4. Some of those are some pretty wild mods. A bit tacky in some cases IMO, but it does look like quality work.

  5. Keep your eye on this site. I’m sure Ryan will find you a nice fixer upper out there.

  6. I think I could only do the fixer upper thing if I won the lottery. I just don’t know enough about cars to be able to fix anything by myself.

  7. Looks like Strosek does really fine work. Will have to keep them on my short list when I need a Porsche tuner.

  8. Something I can’t invision myself ever saying – “I’ll keep them on my short list when I need a Porsche tuner.”

  9. Is there a LONG list for this type of work?

  10. picture 4 The white ride! Love Porsche in Ivory or Black!

  11. o come on jeremy you just won a lot of $$$ on wheel of fortune. i’m sure you could do a little work on a porsche as long as you paid somebody

  12. You look at all these cars and the looks of them and think that if they were MLB players they would sweating the next round of steroid tests!

  13. The recessed headlights on the silver one look pretty nasty. They did a good job on that one.

  14. mitchell says:

    those headlights make it look luck a vw bug a little bit…

  15. Driving Design is the trademark of Vittorio Strosek. Now an exclusive Strosek Individual Program is also available for the new Porsche Cayman. It includes striking and aerodynamically efficient body components: Engine tuning with up to 380 hp / 280 kW, custom-tailored light-alloy wheels with 19- and 20-inch diameters and precision-calibrated suspensions lend the mid-engine sports car even better handling characteristics.
