dp motorsport´s „Ruby“ – based on a Porsche 964 Carrera 2
“…The on-board electronics are powered by an ultra-light Liteblox LB28XX lithium-ion battery. The standard 3.6 liter boxer engine with 250 hp has been completely revised with the help of new and better components, increased to 3.8 liters displacement with different pistons and cylinders and, thanks to sport camshafts and various detail optimizations, brought to an output of 320 hp and 370 Nm. The engine conversion was coordinated on a dynamometer and the specially developed 964 Classic exhaust system with tailpipes in GT3 look provides the right sound. So that the performance can be brought to the asphalt by the revised G50 5-speed gearbox with 964 RS differential lock, the chassis components have been renewed and partially replaced by tighter polyurethane bushings. In combination with a KW Clubsport chassis and Michelin Pilot Sport tires in sizes 225/45 R17 at the front and 255/40 R17 at the rear, driving values are in no way inferior to today’s sports cars. The sprint from 0 to 100 km / h takes 5 seconds and only comes to an end at 280 km / h. However, as is well known, the journey is the goal and thanks to the steady torque curve, it is especially fun to drive from 2750 rpm. In order to delay the classic sports car again, a completely new 964 RS brake system with larger brake calipers, perforated discs, steel flex lines and high-performance brake fluid was installed behind the forged Fuchs rims. This ensures that safety is the top priority not only when it is used daily, but also when you visit the racetrack. And of course, the braking point can also be moved closer to the turning point. With a focus on a daily driver, the well-preserved basic vehicle delivered by the customer was also prepared for future use with cavity sealing, rust protection, underbody protection and stone chip protection film. The conversion took 12 months and cost approx. € 155,000 excluding the value of the base vehicle.”
