Over the years, tons of tuning companies have gotten their hands on a Porsche 911 at some point or another. Typically, with every new generation 911, there’s hundreds or thousands of kits to improve upon the standard model. Very rarely, however, do we come across a tuning kit for a much older model such as this 1973 Porsche 911. German tuner, dp Motorsport, has decided to take on this task with an impressive body kit, interior updates, and a boost of power to 310 HP.

The new body kit used for the 1973 Porsche 911 is made entirely from carbon fiber and includes a new front bumper, hood, fenders, lightweight doors, rear fender flares, rear bumper, and rear spoiler. Both hoods were also equipped with quick release fasteners. The Porsche’s standard windows have been replaced by a set of green-toned Plexiglas windows and lightweight lamp lenses were also installed, both for the sake of saving some weight. This is also the reason the carbon roof panel has been manufactured using the sandwich vacuum technique.

Full story after the jump.

The interior was also given a once-over with new bucket seats, a light carbon dashboard, a special knee bar set, and a raised central tunnel. The interior was also wrapped in black Alcantara with a matching varnished sports steering wheel with Porsche horn button, a lid instead of the clock, a carbon underbody, and the new welded safety cage. Other features include a 70-liter dp Clubsport-tank, a 25-amp gel battery starter, a reduced windshield cleaning liquid tank, light electric airing system, a middle oil cooler with front hood ventilation and a carbon fiber brake cooling housing.

All of the additions done on the exterior and interior aid in lowering the sports car’s total weight to 870kg/1,918lbs, down from the standard 1,080kg/2,381lbs to 1,335kg/2,943lbs, depending on the model.

Joining the reduction of weight is also an upgrade for the vehicle’s 3.6L Boxer engine. dp Motorsport provided the engine with a 50-mm PMO carburetor with open air filters, a programmable advance curve double fuse combined with a G-50 Gearbox, and limited slip differential to achieve 310 HP. A new set of wheels, dp coilovers, adjustable stabilizers, and an upgraded braking system originating from a 964 model and adjusted for the 911-G-Model complete the package.

I’m glad that they already cut the weight of this vehicle! Anyway, it looks so cute on its few modification and the white body paint that they use on it, is only adds more appeal on this Porsche vehicle.

I love how they became this vintage vehicle turned into a modern car, and it really looks cool on that modification. It looks like a rich car on that changes, and it’s a good thing either that it has an impressive engine.

One of the most impressive classic vehicles today and I have to agree that it looks so neat and cool with its white body paint. However, I wonder if what will be the interior of it will look like?

It really looks so neat and cool with its body paint, and it is truly very striking and looking fabulous on that. However, I don’t think either that 310 hp is good enough for this sports vehicle.

Yeah! I’m also quite curious about its interior. Well, I hope that it is impressive as well as on its exterior detailing. However, I don’t think that its engine is just good enough for this sports car.

I am hoping that the Boxer engine of this Porsche 911 would really be good enough on it. Anyway, even if it looks so outdated on its platform, I still find it very appealing and striking on that.

I wonder if what will be the interior of it, will look like? Anyway, it is already looking so great and very attractive on its hygienic body paint. I also hope that its engine could really give a better performance on it.

911 is truly interesting on its design and even on its boxer engine. I wonder if what will be the figure performance of it? Well, I hope that it is impressive as well.

The new front bumper of this Motorsport is truly very splashy on it, but I’m a bit curious if what will the interior updates that they had done on it, look like? Anyway, its engine specification is kind of impressive.
