Surprising our SUBSCRIBER with his DREAM CAR BUILD! (Full Transformation): 2014 Subaru BRZ

  Alex was recently announced as the winner for throtl Dream Build #2! As the winner of #throtldreambuild2, Alex got his car shipped out to San Diego California to be fully modified by the throtl team. When Alex's car arrived, it was a mostly-stock 2014 Subaru BRZ. As soon as the car arrived at the throtl headquarters, the team immediately got to work on some modifications. Alex's car got the works with some new interior, exterior, and performance-based modifications. Interior Modifications For the interior of the BRZ, we installed a custom black suede headliner, throtl shift knob, and a new audio system from OEM Audio+. The OEM Audio+ system sounds significantly better than the factory audio system. This made it way more enjoyable to listen to music in the BRZ. The Opelite Optics headliner had a space theme with led shooting stars that lit up the roof of the BRZ, adding a nice bit of style to the interior. The new throtl shift knob was the cherry on top for interior modificati

The REAL throtl story

Why came to be.

I was searching for a 1970-71 Porsche 911 transmission and I specifically wanted the 70-71 because it retained the same shift pattern for my early 911 project. I knew it’d probably be a little hard to find an actual 70-71 in good shape, but I had no idea how hard it’d end up being. Man...........

I looked everywhere for it. I checked all the usual suspects: eBay’s listings were overpriced, Craigslist only showed results in my area (which means zero matches), and my typical parts forum pulled up nothing.

This is when the "ah ha!" moment hit me. What if auto enthusiasts had a one-stop-shop for all their buying and selling needs? Imagine the effort this would save...Imagine going to one place (instead of 20), and finding that 71 911 transmission!

And this thought, along with countless 16 hour work days (7 days a week), an extremely talented team and many feedback sessions from other enthusiasts, was the birth throtl.

And man, am I glad we did it.

I use throtl on a daily basis to support my out of control air-cooled Porsche hobby. I can't even tell you how many hours it's saved me. I'm not just saying this because I'm a Co-Founder of throtl, but because I believe every auto enthusiast will benefit from the buying and selling tools we offer.

So if you’re out there searching for a part for your car, or are simply fed up with high fees, untrustworthy sellers, or wasted time with current marketplace solutions, I suggest heading to throtl. You'll be glad you did.
