DP Motorsport has been tuning Porsche Cars for about 30 years, they really know what they are doing. This 964 model Porsche 911 has been heavily modified by the tuner, to a weight just over 1900 lbs (870kg). It sports a wide body upgrade, and carbon fiber everything.

This white 911 with  a 3.6 litre engine from a 993 and the wide  dp11 RS 2011 bodykit made completely  from carbon, including front bumper and hood, fenders, lightweight doors, rear fender flares, rear bumper and rear spoiler.

Alongside the green heated windscreen, a set of green-toned Plexiglas windows, as well as lightweight lamp lenses, were installed for the sake of weight saving. Reduced-weight tail light lamp holders, as well as air conditioner cover and underride protection from carbon, help chop the weight down to the desired figure. The carbon roof panel has been manufactured using the sandwich vacuum technique, and both hoods are equipped with quick release fasteners.

The output is 326hp. The engine breathes through two PMO carburettors with 50mm throats, with spark provided by an electronically governed twin-plug distributor system. Power is dispensed through a G50 five-speed gearbox with a limited-slip differential.

As for the interior, the dp 935 bucket seats, the light carbon dashboard, a special knee bar set and the raised central tunnel catch the eye at first glance. In contrast to the body colour, the interior is dominated by black Alcantra. A welded safety cage, a varnished sports steering wheel with Porsche horn button, a lid instead of the clock and a carbon underbody are impossible to overlook.

Finally, such specials are featured as 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, as well as – how could it have been otherwise? – a brake cooling housing made of carbon.

All these modifications ultimately result in bringing the unladen weight of this 911 down to 870 kg (without fuel), the series standard being 1,080 to 1,335 kg depending on the type and equipment.

Wheels size 9’ x 15’ and 13’ x 15’ by Fuchs coupled with 225/50-15 and 345/35-15 tires represent an adequate link between the vehicle and the road. Apart from the dp coilovers, adjustable stabilizers, as well as head bearing, the spring plates and rear-axle independent arms with Uniball bushings are definitely worth a mention. A braking system originating from a 964 model and adjusted for the 911-G-Modell provides appropriate deceleration.

      I am a great fan of 911, but I’m in love with 964 i think that is the most beautiful 911 of all times (I’ve even started a blog about the 964, but I have no time to complete it). So , when I saw this one it really blowed my mind!
