This magnificent thing is DP Motorsport’s way of celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic Porsche 911. The Sleeper 3.2 is a Club Sport racing car based on a stock 1986 911 G-Model. It looks standard, but underneath, DP has done some heavy modifications.

The proper way of turning a stock car into a track car is starting by shedding as much weight as possible. So DP began stripping this 911 off of whatever was not absolutely necessary. After a total weight saving of 280 kg, they ended up with a 911 that weighs just 905 kg. It’s been a heavy diet, though. The windows for example, are made of hardened perspex, while hinges and brackets are perforated and galvanized. The featherweight body is then painted in an original metallic rock green.

As the name suggest, the Sleeper 3.2 is powered by a 3200 cc engine. It is also modified with 88-degree Schrick cams and ported and flowed cylinder heads, as well as enlarged throttle head and lightened flywheel, two 100 cell catalytic converters from HJS , and finally a titanium RSR racing exhaust system. The end result is 270 horsepower and 307 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed 915 gearbox and a limited-slip differential.

The ancient chassis is also upgraded to cope with the high performance chassis. It gets street/sport Bilstein-shock absorbers and a welded strut brace for extra rigidity, as well as Super Pro polyurethane bushings and Uniballs all around. The wheels are FUCHS (size 7 x 16 and 9 x 16 front and rear, with Michelin semi slicks 225/50 and 245/45 respectively), while the braking system comes from a donor 964 C2.

Other important modifications include 935 style Lollipop-seats with Williams 4-point harnesses, a DP Motorsport Club Sport roll bar, a 350mm sport steering wheel, and RS-lightweight carpet.

And the price of all this magnificence, you ask? 89,911 EUR is the answer.
