While it is rare for the owner of any Porsche to be contacted by Type7 to be featured in their publication, it is even rarer for Type7 to commit to a feature of a vehicle that has yet to be completed. For those not familiar, Type7 is an official Porsche media outlet that serves as a daily lifestyle magazine. They select only the most noteworthy examples of Porsches and their owners to be featured on their boutique platform. Enter the CSF 911.
Type7 contacted our Creative Director in October of 2021 as we were still completing the build for SEMA that year. They were so impressed by all the detailed work that went into the car; they scheduled the feature before the completion date.
The right spot
With Type7 committed we began selecting our time and location. Our creative director always envisioned the CSF 911 carving up the canyons and hills in Europe. However, that kind of scenery can be tough to come by in Southern California. As soon as we had recovered from SEMA we began looking for our ideal location. After a few weeks of searching we found it. The perfect location to showcase in the CSF 911 in what we envisioned as its natural habitat; California wine country in Paso Robles.
Central and Northern California Wine country looks strikingly similar to its French and Italian counterparts. As a matter of fact they share the same rare biome. Paso Robles was chosen specifically for its minimal traffic, long winding roads, and natural beauty. Each image captures the beauty of the environment and the essence of this classic Porsche. In essence, this is the exact vision we had for the CSF 911 project.
Unquestionably, the location could not have been more perfect for the CSF 911. We were initially concerned about the lighting conditions as a fairly thick marine layer hid the sun throughout the day. However, the sun managed to break through just in time for a breathtaking sunset over the hills.
Overall our entire experience was nothing less than spiritual. The CSF 911 was completely at home eating up the asphalt through canyons and hill crests. As we pushed the car to its limits, the echo of the air cooled flat six off the canyon walls was nothing short of divine. It was beyond satisfying to feel how comfortable the car was in every situation we could throw at it. The months of meticulous planning, designing, and building the car were well worth it before this trip. However, this was an experience that none of us would trade.
We returned home from this trip with more rock chips on the front bumper than we could count, and memories that will last a lifetime.
