Lightweight Porsche 911 by dp motorsport

Known for producing some of the most incredible Porsche vehicles for almost forty years, Overath-based dp motorsport has built this work of art to demonstrate its latest featherweight products.

Starting with a 1973 911 base, dp stripped it back to an absolutely bare bodyshell before fitting the dp11 RS 2011 body kit. Constructed from carbon fibre, the kit consists of a replacement front and rear bumper, vented hood, fenders, fender flares, rear spoiler – and even the roof panel. Not stopping there, dp also fitted Plexiglas windows, lightweight lamp lenses and tail lamp holders.

Inside, the 911 is equally impressive, with the cabin featuring a carbon dashboard section, sill trims and dp 935 bucket seats finished in Alcantara and leather, along with an extensive, welded-in roll cage. Under the hood there’s a 70 litre Clubsport tank and strut brace.

In the rear sits a 228 kW (310 hp) 3.6 L boxer engine, which is fed by a pair of 50 mm PMO carburettors and mated to a G-50 transmission with a limited slip differential. Chassis upgrades include dp coilovers, adjustable stabilizers, and a 964 braking system, while those iconic Fuchs wheels are sized 9 and 13 x 15-inches, and wrapped in 225/50 and 345/35 rubber.

The result of dp’s carbon diet means that this 911 now tips the scales at 870 kg. Impressive when you realise that a standard car weighs between 1,080 to 1,335 kg – depending on the model.
