Hungarian company unveils featherweight Porsche 912 restomod


Hungarian startup Kamm Manufaktur has released a four-pot Porsche 912 restomod that weighs just 750kg and has almost twice the power of the original.

Kamm said he used “sensitive” upgrades to achieve such a low level for the 912c: the entire window glass was replaced with Lexan and parts of the steel body were replaced with carbon fiber.

The 1.6-liter Type 616 engine has been modified by Swiss specialist JPS Aircooled, increasing its displacement to 2.0 liters, increasing the compression ratio and adding a Weber carburetor. The revisions equate to a jump in power from 90bhp to 168bhp in ‘fast road’ configuration.

That’s pushed to the rear wheel via a five-speed manual gearbox with a ZF limited-slip differential and a set of sticky Yokohoma AD08RS tires.

Kamm has also tweaked the suspension, offering its own custom coilover setup with adjustable dampers and stabilizer bars front and rear.

Stopping power is provided by 964-generation Porsche 911 brakes at the front and Brembo elements at the rear, with ventilated discs all around.

A hydraulic handbrake is also offered, to satisfy your inner hooligan.

Inside, the 912c has good carbon fiber seats and interior trim pieces, as well as lightweight floor mats and a race-specific Tilton pedal box. That doesn’t mean you have to give up all comfort, as the rear seats remain and electric air conditioning has been added as standard. A sound system can also be added at the customer’s request.

Order books for the 912c are now open for €325,000 (£282,500) plus the cost of the original 912, which can be purchased by the customer or Kamm.
