Porsche 912c Restomod Makes Debut With 170 HP & Carbon Fiber Body

The Porsche 912 occupies an unusual place in the company’s history. It used the air-cooled four-cylinder engine from the outgoing 356 but had the body of the then-new 911. From 1965 to 1969, the show was in production. Kamm Manufaktur from Budapest, Hungary, just announced a restomod for this somewhat obscure model.

This piece is known as the 912c by Kamm Manufaktur. It starts with a real 912 donor car and completely disassembles it for restoration. The body panels resemble the original car, but they are made of carbon fibre rather than steel. There are also Lexan windows and chassis reinforcements. Using these lightweight components results in a curb weight of only 1,653 pounds (750 kilogrammes).

JPS Aircooled’s 2.0-liter flat-four engine provides power. It makes 170 horsepower (127 kilowatts) and revs to 7,200 rpm. In comparison, an original 912 has a 1.6-liter air-cooled flat-four producing 90 hp (67 kW), so Kamm Manufaktur significantly improves the car’s powertrain.

The driver uses a five-speed manual transmission with a dogleg layout. A ZF-sourced limited-slip differential is used on the rear axle.

The suspension on the 912c features Kamm Manufaktur coilovers with custom tuning. Both axle dampers and sway bars are adjustable to the driver’s preference. Front brakes are Porsche 911 964-generation, while rear brakes are Brembo aluminium stoppers. It rides on three-piece center-locking wheels with Yokohama AD08RS tyres.

Inside, Kamm instals carbon-fiber seats and uses the lightweight material as cabin trim. Even on hot days, an electric air-conditioning system keeps the interior cool. Audio enhancements are an option.

Kamm intends to begin producing customer examples of the 912c in 2023. The starting price is €325,000 ($323,841 at current exchange rates), and reservations are currently being accepted.
