Carbon Porsche 912: Just 1,541 Pounds

How Much is the Price Tag?

The rapidly-passing 912 was Porsche’s habits when it came to creating their own lineup. In lieu of the mighty six-cylinder of the 911, this model presented a four-cylinder edition, marketed from 1965 until 1969 and became Zuffenhausen’s most cost-effective sports car in substitution for the 356. While this exclusiveness 912c is nowhere near manageable – with a price tag of €400,000 ($437,000).

Constructed by KAMM in Hungary, the Porsche 912c now sports a complete carbon fiber body kit, working to reduce over 661 pounds (300 kg) of weight. This modification puts the total weight at an impressively low figure of 1,541 lbs (699 kg), offering the choice between an unveiled fabric or a painted frame. Its lean design also results in exemplary weight distribution of almost 50:50.

If you’re lucky enough to have a Porsche 912 in your garage, KAMM will only set you back €360,000 ($393,000) for the build. Although that’s still a hefty price tag for the “poor man’s 911”, the Hungarian 911 specialists offer a comprehensive overhaul of the car. This includes fitting a larger 2.0-liter engine that can reach 7,200 rpm and is equipped with electronic fuel injection as well as throttle bodies. The result is a powerful air-cooled four-pot producing an impressive 190 hp – more than double the original output of the smaller 1.6-liter mill inherited from the 356 SC.

For 2024, there are new aerodynamic adjustments, enhanced air-conditioning, a superior sound system and telephone relationship, in addition to newly available seating selections.

The 912c exists in a semi-carbon variant, which has a weight of 750 kg (1,653 lbs). The price is €360,000 ($393,000) or €320,000 ($350,000) without the donor car. KAMM anticipates shipments to start sometime early in 2024, and ensures all examples will be distinct from each other.

Roughly 30,000 Porsche coupes and 2,500 Targas were constructed across the span of the 912’s five-year production; however, it is uncertain how many remain today after the expiration of six decades.
