We specialize in all-steel, custom built backdated 911 RS / RSR cars. We build quality, not quantity. Each car is a product of relentless automotive passion. We only make a few cars yearly to future owners to cherish for a lifetime. 


Our vintage Porsche restorations are just like our custom builds; each car receives detailed nut-and-bolt refurbishing. We aim to give new life to old Porsches, just like when they were new. 


“Working with S&V automotive was such a pleasant experience. I absolutely loved the collaborative process of working with Simo on the restoration. He was always candid and helpful sharing his extensive Porsche knowledge to get from a rough chassis on a jig, to a finished product I couldn’t be happier with.  I learned from the experience that Simo is as much of an artist as an engineer!“ - Vic V. 

"Owning and driving an SV Automotive restored 911 gives me great pride. The SV Auto team does phenomenal work and excels in customer satisfaction. I receive compliments wherever I go. SV Auto's craftsmanship and attention to detail stands out in any crowd. Thank you Simo" - Tim K.
