Aimé Leon Dore and Porsche Are Back with a Beautifully Restored 944 Turbo

Restored Porsche builds are always a hit among fans, especially when the Stuttgart marque chooses to team up with another label. New York-based fashion house Aimé Leon Dore has collabed with Porsche a handful of times, and now the duo is back with a restored 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo, equipped with a custom livery and elevated details. 

Marking the fourth collaboration between Aimé Leon Dore and Porsche, this restoration build takes the ​​1986 Porsche 944 Turbo in Guards Red and hits it with custom gold 17″ TeleDial rims and decals, perforated tan leather & sienna brown Alcantara for the interior, and ALD branding throughout in a matching gold colorway. The duo did reinstall the Blaupunkt radio/cassette player, but the rest of the car is stock, boasting a 2.5 L turbocharged four-cylinder engine giving you 217 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque.

This isn’t just a restoration build either, as the car is featured in the second part of ALD’s Doublemint series, picking up where the previous episode left off with Action Bronson giving our main characters the keys to the Porsche 944 Turbo and an address. The cover is pulled off, a New York license plate is screwed on, and the car is driven (and admired) around the city before pulling into a hangar. The car also arrives alongside a few clothing pieces, like the Porsche Club Jacket from ALD’s Spring/Summer collection. 

The Aimé Leon Dore Porsche 944 Turbo was recently revealed at ALD’s flagship store in NYC over this last weekend on April 5th, and should be sticking around for a bit if any New Yorkers are keen on checking it out. You can also head on over to ALD’s site to check out the latest installment of the Doublemint series and more images of the car.
