This is the proper production spec KAMM 912c restomod
The Hungarian 912 restomod is finally ready for production, and there’s been quite a few changes from our first drive
Back in October last year we had our first experience of the KAMM 912c – a restomod Porsche 912 that focusses on light weight and driver engagement above all else.
At the time we drove a prototype and got on very well indeed. It was raw and race-ready with unassisted brakes, no driver aids and motorsport-spec suspension. Now the production-spec version has been revealed, and although it may look similar from the outside, there have been some serious alterations under the skin.
The engine is still supplied by Swiss firm JPS Aircooled and it’s still a 2.0-litre air-cooled four-cylinder, but electronic fuel injection and throttle bodies now replace carburettors and there’s uprated internals for 187bhp and a 7,200rpm redline.
There are also new brakes all round, electronically adjustable suspension, revised gear ratios for better cruising and a less frantic steering rack. All of which should make the 912c a slightly more useable road car.
We’re told that there will also be the option of a full carbon fibre body (which should further reduce the 750kg kerb weight) and a “track focused engine tune, exhaust and tyres” for those that want something closer to that prototype.
Sounds like we need another go. Unfortunately, the revisions have meant that the price of entry has risen too. The 912c will now cost £313,000 if you’re not supplying your own donor car. Yikes.
