We are forever fascinated by old cars restored with modern elements. This way you get the swell styling of a classic, without any of the drawbacks. That’s what dp Motorsport has done with a 1973 Porsche 911.
They’ve basically rebuilt the whole car with new carbon fiber body panels including front bumper and hood, fenders, lightweight doors, rear fender flares, rear bumper and rear spoiler. The car has heated windscreen and lightweight green-toned Plexiglas windows, as well as lightweight lamp lenses.The whole thing weighs no more than 870 kg.
This featherweight car gets a 3.6 liter boxer engine with 228 kW/310 HP output. Granted, it has 50-mm PMO carburetor with open air filters and that is not very modern, but it’s got the power and I bet it sounds amazing!
The power is delivered via G-50 Gearbox and limited slip differential to the rear wheels. Speaking of the wheels, they are 9’ x 15’ and 13’ x 15’ by Fuchs rims wrapped with 225/50-15 and 345/35-15 tires.
The tuner has redone the interior as well, with a carbon fiber dashboard and covered it in black Alcantra. You get a safety roll cage and a classic Porsche steering wheel with horn button.
Other features of this superb car include a dp Clubsporttank with the capacity of 70 litres, a 25-amp gel battery starter, a smaller windshield cleaning liquid tank, light electric interior airing system, a middle oil cooler with front hood ventilation, and a brake cooling housing made of carbon.
