Having classic Porsche 911s modified to become high-performance contemporary sports cars has been a dream for many and the trend has recently started catching wings.
Kaege has also decided to dive in and is coming to the market with a project that has started life as an old, 1972 911. The German specialists now have a retro-flavored air-cooled Porsche 911 from the F-Series, made as a great representative of the early 1970s. The classic looks of the 911 have been retained, but the model now has numerous carbon-fiber body elements – with the vehicle tipping the scales at just 2,635 pounds (1,195 kilograms). The level of special attention given to the project is fantastic – for example the headlights have their classic design but actually feature Osram LED projector technology. Fuchs is responsible for the two-tone five-spoke alloys wrapped in Michelin tires and concealing the ventilated disc brakes.
Stepping inside the cabin the owner will get the full leather treatment with new upholstery for the Recaro sports seats, dashboard, steering wheel, and door cards. There’s also a Becker navigation system in the shape of the original Porsche radio. Kaege has decide the 3.6-liter naturally-aspirated air-cooled petrol engine should be taken from the 993 generation and it has been massaged to deliver 300 horsepower (221 kilowatts), sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. Other highlights include air conditioning, a multi-link rear suspension, and airbags. The model will be presented to the public during the Retro Classic at Stuttgart 2016.
