It's no Singer, but still worthy of our attention.

Customizing 911s to give them a classic look and more up-to-date hardware is not exactly a novelty. Some are great at it like Singer, while others not so much. The Porsche specialists at Kaege in Germany are presenting today they’re take on a 993 featuring an assortment of subtle retro-flavored cosmetic revisions as a nod to the 1972 F Series 911.

Simply called “Retro,” the car was actually completely stripped down and all of the body panels have been changed with carbon fiber ones to enable a healthy diet of more than 100 kilograms (220 pounds), allowing the 911 tip the scales at just 1,195 kilograms (2,634 pounds, dry). It’s sitting on Fuchs-styled wheels and has received a set of KW coilovers to give it a more modern feel. Speaking of which, LED technology has been used for the lighting clusters now fitted with slightly modified housings further contributing to the car’s retro theme.

Moving at the back, its air-cooled 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine pushes out a healthy 300 horsepower (224 kilowatts), which is more than enough to put a big smile on the owner’s face. Not only that, but the overhauled exhaust system is also music to Kaege’s ears.

The interior undoubtedly has that special early 1970s flair, but with a modern twist since it has received Becker navigation and a pair of body-hugging Recaro front seats. The former has a vintage look in order to blend in with the rest of the cabin, which on a personal note would be borderline perfect with a different steering wheel.

Kaege mentions in the short film’s description it is a big fan of Singer’s work and with the “Retro” it wants to show the world the company’s vision of a “perfect Porsche 911.” As you would imagine, the video also demonstrates Kaege’s capabilities of customizing 911s based on a customer’s various requirements.
