Canepa Design - Warehouse - Nisseki Porsche

This image was taken inside the rear warehouse area inside the Canepa Design facility in Scotts Valley, California.


The stunning array of racing cars from all sorts of motorsport series all over the world was beyond belief, the pictures still do no justice to just how awesome a place this was to visit - everywhere you turned you were stumbling on another racing car or super car that you grew up with a poster of on your bedroom wall, one after another, they just kept coming.


I really didn't want to leave and head back North to Sunnyvale, it was just TOO MUCH FUN here!!!


Canepa Design is owned and run by ex-racing driver Bruce Canepa and he is renowned for his quality work tuning certain car makes such as Porsche's, Ford's, as well as taking time to restore classics from the likes of Carol Shelby etc.


The workshop area you see here is hidden behind the main entrance area where a variety of racing cars and rare automobiles from all over the world can be found, and then behind this workshop was the warehouse area where I was stunned to find so many original racing cars from the likes of Le Mans in the 70's all the way through to current racing cars like the new Ford GT40.


Stunning place to visit if you're into your cars as much as I am, you definitely won't be dissapointed that's for sure.
