One of the most iconic Porsche 911 models ever made was the 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7. The car was built for performance and featured a number of improvements ranging from an enlarged engine to special motorsports suspension and chassis modifications. The interior, along with other parts of the car, were stripped to their bare minimum to save weight and the entire exterior was given a special paint scheme with lettering on the side and engine lid, while a unique "ducktail" spoiler decorated the rear. With these 911 Carrera 2.7 models going for incredibly high prices to collectors, the team at DP Motorsports designed and developed a new conversion package for the more modern 964-generation Porsche 911 models that make it look just like the original model. The conversion package includes new body work, a new paint scheme, engine configurations, chassis updates, and forged wheels along with a revised interior design.
One of the things that made the original 911 Carrera RS 2.7 was its bigger engine that powered it. The engine was larger than the standard 911 variants and was more akin to ones used in racing models that were popular at the time. While the 964-generation models used a larger 3.6-liter flat-six engine with 250 horsepower, the team was able to give it a bit more fun and excitement with some new upgrades. The engineering team installed a new K & N air filter system to improve airflow to the engine, a new stainless steel exhaust with polished rear tailpipe, and a new 100-cell catalytic converter that improved exhaust gas flow. The final step was a test bench balancing operation that ensured the engine ran properly and smoothly. The result was a total of 280 horsepower being sent to each of the rear forged wheels for greater acceleration and performance.
The exterior was given a full makeover to resemble its more iconic sibling. The front was equipped with a new bumper, headlight covers, turn signal marks, and front fenders that are a bit wider than the standard units. The sides of the 911 were each given a new set of side skirts that help reduce drag by redirecting air around the rear forged wheels. The rear boasts a new bumper and a classic "ducktail" spoiler. The entire sports car was given the unique paint scheme with a sport gray base color and Indian red highlights and "Carrera" writing along each side.
The entire chassis was also upgraded to improve handling and performance. The factory rims and tires were replaced with new 7.0 x 17 front and 9.0 x 17 rear forged wheels with the classic Fuchs five-spoke design and paired with high-performance tires.
Inside the team at DP Motorsports focused on giving the 964 Porsche 911 a minimalistic interior. A new roll cage and fire extinguisher was installed while numerous amenities, padding, and sound deadening material were removed to reduce weight for better overall performance.
