Germany’s DP Motorsport is yet another aftermarket specialist that loves to play with older generation Porsche 911 models – and as a side effect, the models are great for the tracks of the world.
The tuning shop particularly has a knack for the 964 generation from the late 1980s and early 1990s – and their latest implementation revolves around a 1990 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 that has been taken to clubsport status. The great things is you can still use it on the road, and with the modifications in place the 911 is 25 percent lighter and 30 percent more powerful. The build came to life after stripping the 911 to the shell, with the front getting a carbon fiber hood and lightweight aluminum supports, as well as a new front spoiler of custom design. The rear has been adorned with the Turbo’s wide fenders and a carbon fiber engine cover – while all the windows have been treated to a mix of Plexiglas and thinner-than-stock glass.
Thanks to the modifications, the 911 now tips the scales at 2,282 pounds (1,035 kilograms). It won’t do much good if you don’t know this is not your oldish 911, so the Signal Yellow color takes care of drawing the crowd. Under the hood resides a 3.8-liter flat six, packing a set of Schrick camshafts, 2.8-inch (71-millimeter) throttle bodies, and an M&M exhaust – enough to reach 325 horsepower (242 kilowatts). The KW coilover suspension resolves the handling situation, while DP also opted for a five-speed gearbox from a 964 RS and a limited-slip differential.
