green Porsche KAMM 912c quarter front road

Check out this cool carbon fiber restaurant based on the Porsche 912

It is very difficult to keep classic cars as they are while making them still roadworthy. After all, decades of driving have resulted in rusty components, broken parts, and missing components. But since classic cars are usually timeless prizes, they should survive as long as possible.


This is where the restorations come in. Restorations can be partial or complete, but they are all aimed at returning the car to the desired condition. However, the restorer may make some modifications to make a classic car fit for the road or even improve its performance.

KAMManufaktur, or KAMM for short, is a company based in Budapest, Hungary that wants to create restomods – restored and modified cars – from car icons. Recently, I presented an interesting restaurant based on one of the famous Porsche classics – 912.

Selection Porsche 912 as a theme for KAMM Restomode seems intriguing. after every thing , KAMM 912c is a rich classic carbon fiber casing with a cool classic lookWhich brings people back in time.


KAMM chooses 912 as a platform to launch its first restaurant

KAMM has good reasons for choosing the Porsche 912 as the basis for its offering. The company described the 912 as “the first and purest generation of all time” in Porsche’s history. Basically, the 912 is the first variant of the 911 (901), but at an affordable price. Porsche actually intended the 902 to fill the price gap between the 911 and the 356which was still in production in the early years of the sports car.

To make the 912 more affordable for customers in terms of price, Porsche settled on the 911-spec. In terms of appearance, it almost looks like the 911. Its core, however, was a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine derived from the 356 SC, providing much less power. The 912 also lacks many of the features found in the 911.

By doing so, she made the Porsche 912 more attractive. Compared to the 911, the 912 was lighter and offered better weight distribution. On top of that, the 912 proved to be easier to handle than the 911, and it can also travel longer distances on a full fuel tank.

KAMM found the 912 to be the perfect platform not only for its design and simplicity, but also for its slim, narrow and simple line.

Carbon fiber with improved parts and components

To create its 912c, KAMM replaced many of the steel parts – especially the chassis – of the classic car with carbon fibre, ensuring a smooth finish and flawless fit. In fact, the letter “c” in the 912c refers to the classic car’s carbon fiber elements. The 912c also features Lexan windows, and it maintains its classic exterior look despite the carbon fiber panels. In this example, the KAMM 912c is finished in green, with orange lines and rounded numbers.

KAMM has also improved the chassis, brake suspension, wheels and tires, with all original elements replaced with new factory parts. For example, the suspension system for the KAMM 912c features custom KAMM front coils, adjustable rear arms, adjustable front and rear sway bars, as well as adjustable front and rear dampers.

The Restomod rides on a set of three-piece center-locking wheels with Yokohama AD08RS tires. Meanwhile, the brake system borrows the front brakes for the Porsche 964 and features Brembo aluminum rear brakes. The restomod also uses ventilated front and rear discs.

KAMM 912 COMES WITH FOUR WHEELS WITH 170 HP

The heart of the KAMM 912c is a detailed, high-performance 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that the company prepared for restomod in collaboration with Swiss experts JPS Aircooled. This engine is capable of delivering a maximum output of 170 horsepower, which is plenty for a 912 carbon-fiber seat that tips the scales at around 1,653 lb.

With such power inherent inside, this engine is nearly twice as powerful as the original 912 Classic Mill, which delivers about 90 horsepower. The 912c’s 2.0-liter engine features highway tuning with a redline of 7200 rpm, aided by KAMM Carbon Carrera cooling, a Weber 44IDF carburetor, 123 ignition and a KAMM stainless steel exhaust system.

To distribute the power, KAMM has combined the 170-hp engine with a 901/2 5-speed (dogleg) transmission, with a ZF LSD differential, a KAMM gear lever and a Porsche aluminum hydraulic racing clutch.

KAMM didn’t say how the 912c works on the road, but it promises Restomod will remind drivers of what a true classic car feels like.

Lightweight interior with classic hardware and gauges

Inside the carbon fiber body of the KAMM 912c there is a custom interior that also contributes to the light character of the restomod. For example, KAMM has installed KAMM carbon fiber seats, carbon fiber interior trim, and lightweight carpeting. The classic sports car also comes with a Tilton pedal box and electric air conditioning. The steering wheel also takes a classic turn, while the gauges on the instruments are all representative.

KAMM will begin production of the 912c in 2023, and command more than $370,000 for the complete vehicle. Customers can submit their own 912, and KAMM will convert to their order specifications. The 912c will come in limited numbers, and pre-orders for the classic restomod have been accepted.
