If Architectural Digest ever has a garage in their cover page, it will be Carlos'. Truly a statement. Amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Hi PorscheOnut, as requested, a few more pix. First one is of the bar looking in from the parking area, the bar itself is in the center section of the pix, half-hidden. The ivory sofa looks into the the bar and the TV, while its blue twin looks out to the parking area. Then a coupe of pix of the parking area from the bar... and a pix from the "Work" room at the other end of the garage. Behind the Work room is the Tool/Parts room that endcaps the garage.

A roofdeck also connects all of the sections of the garage. Cheers.

Hi Nurburger, all is well with me thank you, hope the same for you and your family. You may have seen in the 993 board that Jim D and I embarked on a project to create "forged" Speedline wheels over a couple of years ago. I had started looking for a spare set for the 993 GT 2 magnesium wheels, as those can crack even from road use if a pothole is big enough and the impact strong enough. But no luck finding a perfect set. So Jim and started a project to produce forged versions. After well over a year, and parts from Italy, Germany, and France, and forged centres CNC'ed and manufactured in good old California, we were done. A true labor of love on the part of Jim, the wheels sets are beautiful. 3 of my air cooled 911's are now shod with forged Speediness, and the original mint sets in storage.

Thanks for sharing! I love it. Your "work" room looks like the perfect place to get distracted from "work"!

Carlos

Excellent work all around especially on the translucent ceiling - curious what system you installed.

A quick shot 2200 sf - local Porsche dealer just opened and picked up left over Porsche 4 light recess to highlight wall art.

Struggled with ceiling first thought the N Ring designed in the ceiling back lit but after seeing your ceiling very curious.

Carlos, that is not a garage, that is a work of art - both the cars in it and the building itself

Thanks all.

Nuvo, the ceiling material is Barrisol, a lighting/"stretched ceiling" products company. They have a website for many countries. I am very happy with the end result, but the number 1 issue was that with my location, they had to pre-cut and special wrap at the factory (France, I think), export, and then use specialist installers at my location. Thus, lead times and extra expense. For big cities in the U.S., I think this should be a far smaller problem.

The underlying light source is a dimmable, programmable, LED white light/RGB system.

The Z8 in the pix normally lives in another garage (a fine car!), but is a place holder here for a 911R arriving shortly. Eager to compare the R to the RS 4.0, and of course the CGT.

Great place, Carlos!

And I would not call it a garage. This looks more like museum of modern art

Is the Z8 an Alpina?

That car is a regular Z8. I have always liked the Alpina wheels, but preferred the regular Z8 concept of manual transmission and M5 engine over the Alpina Z8's automatic transmission and enhanced 7 Series engine - Alpina's concept was more of a "cruiser". Of course, the Alpina is far more rare.

Actually, that car is on one of the very very small number of "forged" Alpina type wheels made by BBS during a special order run - most Alpina wheels are BBS cast wheels.
