Robert Linton

There had been murmurs in the Porsche community of a highly modified, highly customized, 964 named the ?America GS?, commissioned by a gentleman who had a very close relationship with the Porsche Exclusive and ?Special Wishes? department. No one really knew much about the backstory of this incredible piece of Porsche history until the owner revealed his identity guessed it....Instagram a few months ago. Robert Linton, an avid (to say the least) Porsche enthusiast has had a rapport with the Porsche factory ever since he sat down to order his 1989 Flachbau 930 Turbo Cabriolet. Since that project, Linton took the words ?one of one? to a new extreme. Not only was his 930 Turbo the last to leave the factory after two years of production, but his cars that would follow would adhere to the 930?s ethos: lighten everything, stiffen everything, source materials from the bowels of the periodic table, and add a lot of leather. Eli and Sam have a chat with Robert Linton to discuss his obsession with Porsche and his thought processes behind some of his unbelievable builds. Tune in!

Specializing in Porsche 356?s, Rod restores these simple yet iconic cars with his own ?outlaw? look and feel by updating the cars? mechanical componentry - brakes, suspension, and flat-four motors - as well as their exterior design which he purposely keeps not too far from the factory look. On this episode Rod speaks about his story; how he began the first minutes of his life quite literally in a Porsche, and how his passion for the Porsche brand has allowed him to morph from a man with a hobby into a serious contender in the automotive world.

Bruce Canepa

Eli and Sam had the pleasure of hosting Bruce Canepa on this episode of FFT. Bruce is held in very high regard amongst the automotive community, most notably for his business based in Scotts Valley, CA. Canepa?s automotive mecca, which bears his name, is a state-of-the-art facility in which Canepa has a restoration shop, dealership, and a museum. A car that comes out of a Canepa restoration is a car that most people ?in the know? would refer to as ?perfect?. Bruce?s attention to detail, anti-corner cutting philosophy, and pursuit of excellence no matter what type of vehicle he is working on, is something that is immediately apparent when you come ?face-to-metal'' with one of his cars. His lucrative business along with his successful racing career which involved cars like the Porsche 935, 962, and March GTP car, called for a lengthy episode full of good anecdotes from Bruce?s busy life.
