THE RSR PROJECT
The RSR Project specializes in restoring, rebuilding and tailoring a cult classic for Porsche enthusiasts, the RSR. With a passion for the cars as the catalyst for the business, Richard and his team build custom dream cars with various engine sizes, interior features, and numerous details making your dream RSR possible.
Richard Schickman, founder of the RSR Project, has had a love for Porsches since the early 1980s; his passion and knowledge of classic cars combine with his business experience to form the foundation of this exciting venture. The RSR Project began with a personal pursuit to build a dream car of his own, and Richard soon realised he wasn’t alone in his desire to have his own interpretation of the mythical beast that is the RSR.
Richard has made a specialty in recreating the Porsche 911 RSR, one of the most iconic performance cars ever built. Working directly with his clients, he conceptualizes their dreams of creating the perfect RSR, maintaining a hands-on approach from start to finish and sharing each phase with clients along the way. Combining his endless knowledge of vintage Porsches with a classic sense of style and signature touches like the use of fine Scottish plaids, Richard’s passion and craftsmanship are the catalyst for his business.

When I first met Richard, and saw one of his builds in person, I was extremely impressed and could immediately see the quality of the work and attention to the smallest details. That first visit, we spent several hours talking and meeting with various members of his team. It was clear that he is very organized and passionate about these cars and the results speak for themselves. I knew that he was the guy I wanted to take on my project. We discussed the details and my particular specs and kicked things off.
Since he already had sourced a solid donor car, things got underway very quickly. He kept me constantly up to date with emails, many photos, texts and quick calls. Throughout the process, Richard was always very quick to address any of my questions or concerns.
After only 8 months, from start to finish, the car was done and perfect! And that was only extended by my late addition of a roll bar, that happened to be backordered. I decided to wait for delivery of the car and have his team install the bar since I knew the welding and carpet work would be done perfectly, and it was.
He makes spectacular cars and I would recommend him to anyone. He’s a terrific guy with a passion for these cars and I very much enjoyed the entire process.
