A classic sports car with a modern touch.
Since 1973 the team at DP Motorsport has been restoring, modifying, and upgrading Porsche models from the 911 to the 962 racer and even a 944 Cargo wagon. As of late, they are focused on improving classic models and giving them a bit of a modern touch and the latest to get this treatment is the lime green 964 Porsche 911 Classic S.
The car began as a standard 964-generation 911 Carrera model and was equipped with all sorts of tech such as antilock brakes, power brake unit, power steering, and new gearshift, an upgraded chassis, sliding sunroof, and also air conditioning to bring it into the 21st century. The entire body is constructed from a precise fiberglass kit that was designed to appear as though the entire body is made from one piece. The new bodywork is covered in an eye-catching lime green paint while the hood and trunk wear a contrasting matte black finish. White dots allow for participants racing numbers to be installed and matte black sponsorship stickers add another highlight.
The more modern and track-focused design takes shape inside with the classic sports seats and their four-point safety belts. A Momo steering wheel stares ahead along with the lime green tachometer that matches the newly-installed roll cage surrounding the cabin.
Power can be had in two forms depending on what kind of acceleration you desire. A 3.6-liter flat-six engine spits out 290 naturally-aspirated ponies while a larger 3.8-liter flat-six churns out 330 horsepower for even more fun. This is sent to the new lightweight forged Fuchs wheels that measure 7.0 x 17 ET55 at the front and rear and are shod in 205/50 ZR17 up front and 255/50 ZR 17 at the rear. For better handling dynamics, nine-piece adjustable Bilstein coilovers with optional unibal bearings help to slice through corners.
The 964 Porsche 911 Classic S by DP Motorsport is available in Classic S, RS, and Classic RSR flavors along with lime green, light yellow, blood orange, and sport classic grey colors. Customers can choose a variety of additional options from DP Motorsport as well.
