To hell with the restomods based on the Porsche 911. The young Hungarian company KAMM Manufaktur goes against the trend, and unveils a restomod made on the basis of the Porsche 912. This entry-level version launched in the mid-1960s thus becomes the KAMM 912c, and is modernized to become a racing car that can also be driven on the open road.

Each donor car is reworked to become a real new car. The steel of the body is notably replaced by carbon fiber, for more lightness. The panes are replaced by Lexan polycarbonate plates. The KAMM 912c therefore weighs less than 750 kilos, compared to 965 for the original Porsche 912. KAMM Manufaktur also says it is improving the chassis of the German coupe, as well as its brakes, suspensions, headlights and even its wheels, which are fitted with Yokohama tires.

170 horsepower for only 750 kilos

The 2.0 four-cylinder flat engine is also improved with the help of the Swiss company JPS Aircooled. Dedicated to performance, this block develops 170 horsepower. It is associated with a Weber 44 IDF carburettor, a five-speed dogleg gearbox, a ZF limited-slip differential, an aluminum racing clutch, or even a stainless steel exhaust system whose pipes are on the side.

For the rest, the interior of this Porsche 912 restomod signed KAMM Manufaktur features seats whose shell is made of carbon fiber. This material also covers certain parts of the passenger compartment, which is also equipped with electric air conditioning and a Tilton pedal set. The exterior livery is green, with orange stripes that reinforce the sporty look of the car.

The production of this KAMM 912C should begin in the course of the year 2023. Reservations are already open, according to the statements of the preparer. The price of each copy is set at €325,000. Of course, the price of a Porsche 912 must be added to this amount, which generally varies between €50,000 and €85,000 depending on the model.

In short

Transforming the Porsche 912 – an entry-level 911 released in the 1960s – into a real racing car, you had to dare. The Hungarian tuner KAMM Manufaktur is embarking on this project, offering its customers the opportunity to transform their car into a KAMM 912c. Largely lightened thanks to the use of carbon fiber, the 912 then weighs 750 kilos, while its 2.0 flat four-cylinder engine develops 170 horsepower. It also receives a side exhaust, or a limited slip differential. The price of this KAMM 912c restomod is set at €325,000 per unit, to which must be added the amount necessary to purchase a Porsche 912.
