Stunning Porsche 911 Restomod Pays Tribute To Legendary Race Car

Tuning / Comments

The paint job is taken from the Porsche Carrera GT.

We've seen some stunning Porsche 911 restomods over the years, which makes it difficult to stand out from the crowd - especially when Singer has already set the standard for Porsche 911 restomods. But that hasn't stopped DP Motorsport from offering a new take on the classic Porsche 911. Based on a 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupe, the tuner's new restomod project pays tribute to the 911 S/T race car, which paved the way for iconic Porsche RS and RSR in the early 1970s.

Power is provided by a tuned 3.6-liter flat-six from 964-generation Porsche 911 that produces 290 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. DP Motorsport has also fitted a modern KW Clubsport coilover suspension kit that makes the car suitable for track day racing, while front axle links with polyurethane mountings and tie rod ends optimizes the handling.

The car rides on 15-inch Fuchs wheels wrapped in Michelin 225/50 and 270/45 tires. As for the exterior, the 1985 Porsche 911 restomod is fitted with a new front and rear bumper, front turn signal elements, parking light surrounds, front fenders, and hood, along with open side skirts without underbody protection, chrome-plated exterior mirror housing, and chrome-plated window frames, door handles and other details. A GT-Silver-metallic paint finish taken from the Porsche Carrera GT completes the exterior upgrades.

Inside, the retro-inspired bucket seats are wrapped in fabric and synthetic leather. Other cabin equipment includes four-point harness belts, a period-correct roll cage, and a Momo steering wheel with a diameter of 13.7 inches. Unlike the original race car, this modern-day 911 S/T has electric power steering. The rear window is also made of lightweight plexiglass.

"It was not our intention to create a 100 percent faithful replica of the Porsche 911 S/T," said company manager Patrick Zimmermann. "Instead, we were concerned with stylish sports equipment with a considerable amount of fun." If you like what you see, DM Motorsport is considering developing similar Porsche 911 restomods if there's enough demand.
