Uber-Werks is a website highlighting the automotive works of Thomas P. Otten. Mr. Otten is a registered Professional Engineer in the state of Texas, as well as an accomplished software developer. His love of Porsche cars started when he was in his early teens, as his first "job" was changing oil in the family VW shop. He is an avid enthusiast in the restoration, modification, and preservation of Porsches, VW's and other automobiles which hail from the country of his ancestral homeland (and a few which don't). We specialize in restoring Porsches to their original condition, paying particular attention to detail. We also assist buyers in Germany and the USA locating and purchasing vehicles. From air cooled 911 engine rebuilds, to custom electronic fuel injection systems, to part fabrication, we provide top quality engineering solutions to these cars of joy. On the menu above, you will find links to restoration projects, including my personal car, the Überblau 1973 Porsche 914. If I can assist you, please contact me. -Thomas P. Otten
