German tuner DMC is widely known for its carbon fiber magic on various supercars. For a few weeks now, they had been hinting at a project for the classic Porsche 993, which has been widely viewed as the zenith of the 911 range. What started as a project idea, has become a passionate dream, as we see the engineers post new photos every week on their newly dedicated IG account @DMC_RS. As it seems, the crazy idea they had was to create a full carbon body to lower the car’s weight. Let’s see what they did so far, introducing the DMC RS 993!
Nearly the full body panels have been re-created in carbon fiber already: The rear wing, front and rear bumper, all fenders, the wide body fender extensions and even the front hood. Roof and Doors are set to finish soon, completing the concept of an ultra light car. But reducing the weight, is only the first step in the goal that DMC set themselves, in order to build your dream Porsche 993. You can either supply your own car for conversion, or the german tuner will help you to source one. It will be completely rebuilt, starting with a reconditioning of the base chassis, new suspensions and, should you chose to, a re-worked engine set up.
But let’s have a look at the design for a moment. Besides swapping OEM components to Carbon Fiber, you will get a new wider look that is based on no other car than one of Porsche’s Limited Edition EVO GT2. Rumours have it that DMC was able to purchase the original molds, but the company would not (or could not?) confirm this when we asked about it. The new design is aggressive, but even hard-core Porsche 993 fans will be in love, since it’s not a re-drawn tuning body but all based on original OEM lines. And the best, your base car won’t have to be a wide-body Turbo, DMC provides a set of Fenders that also fit a narrow, non-Turbo Porsche 993.
As mentioned earlier, the original engine can be removed and a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated and air-cooled engine flat-6 takes its place. The engine is hand-built and comes from a partner in England UK, which tunes the mill to produce 400 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. Each car receives an active suspension to provide the best dampening rates. The system calculates road conditions 1,000 times per second.
To fill out the wider wheel arches, DMC suggests 295/30/18 front and 335/30/18 rear Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. Brembo CCM-R carbon ceramic 15-inch rotors sit behind the wheels. Customers can select from a never-ending options list to create a completely custom Porsche 993.
We will keep you updated about this project, for now, here are some more photos of what the design will look like in white, but we really hope to see a client that chooses an exposed full carbon fiber body Porsche 993, what do you think?
Here are a few shots of the engine work. Some clients may prefer to keep the motor work original but it’s good to see that performance options are available. Would you choose standard or upgrade?
