With lots of money
There are few other sports cars out there as iconic as the Porsche 911. This German powerhouse has been tearing up roads for decades, and despite the fact that its design hasn't changed much, it is still considered one of the best-looking performance cars out there. It goes without saying that the 911 has a massive fanbase, and cars from all generations are lovingly restored and modified on a regular basis. Cars like the Singer 964 Porsche 911 show us just what can be accomplished when enough time and money is spent on a car, and now DP Motorsport, based in North Rhine-Westphalian Overath, Germany, has decided to show what it can do with a 964-generation Carrera 2.
This car was designed to resemble modified Porsches of the 70s and features a Carmona Red Metallic (color code M3W) paint job, and a widebody kit that widens the car by an inch. Copper-colored, black and chromed elements also give it a distinctive 70s look. The exterior might look restrained (in a good way), but the interior is on another level. Inside the cabin, you'll find an Alcantara roof liner, a Porsche PCCM infotainment system with Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay, a deep dished Momo steering wheel with red stitching, and Recaro Sportster CS seats wrapped in leather. Further tech includes a hidden dash cam and upgraded speakers.
Under the hood, this 911 packs a powerful punch. Its standard 3.6-liter Boxer engine, producing around 250 horsepower was completely revised by increasing the displacement to 3.8-liters and received new pistons, a more aggressive camshaft, and numerous small mods to increase power to 320 hp and 273 lb-ft. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a G50 5-speed gearbox with a 964 RS limited-slip differential and a set of KW Clubsport coilovers and Michelin Pilot Sport tires to make sure the power gets delivered to the black stuff without much drama. The end result is a zero to sixty time of only five seconds, and a top speed of 174 mph. Slowing down this creation is a completely new 964 RS brake system.
The car has undergone a full restoration, and DP Motorsport estimates that the build cost 155,000 Euro ($183,363) without the value of the donor car. No matter the cost, this thing is a rolling piece of art.
