New York fashion label Aimé Leon Dore (ALD) founder Teddy Santis teamed up with Porsche one more time to restore a personal 911 Super Carrera and of course, to also sell co-branded merchandise such as T-shirts, hoodies, purses, caps and so on.

The 911 SC is finished in a classic Porsche color Olive, which is perfectly contrasted with Fuchs wheels with black spokes. The car also got Auxiliary lights on the bonnet and a roof rack for some added practicality.
