This superb Horizon Blue Porsche 964 Turbo was a recent visitor to the DSD Motorwerks Porsche service workshop in Essex. Two surprises awaited us on inspecting the 964: one was the flatnose conversion, the other an absolutely lovely twin-turbo engine build with a staggering 700 bhp, capable of powering this 911 to a top speed of 212 mph.
The owner had a great deal of information to share on the car. Starting life as a sensible 3.3-litre 964 Turbo enjoyed by its driver for eight happy years, the engine was handed to 935 racer, Richard Chamberlain of CTR Developments, in the quest for more speed at v-max events.
Developed on the engine dyno at Judd Engineering, the hand-built Porsche flat six engine now uses silver-coated liners that screw into the cylinder heads at very high torque, to ensure they can withstand the awesome boost pressures this engine has been designed to produce.
MoTeC M800 engine management controls the fuel and spark, with active anti-knock technology. Two K27 turbochargers are fed by rear wing scoops pulling air through £10k worth of custom intercoolers from Marston Engineers. The turbos pump up to 1.4 bar of boost pressure into the engine, which then breathes out through a wonderfully exotic exhaust made of Inconel alloy with twin silencers.
The 700 bhp output on regular pump gas gives a better power-to-weight ratio than a Bugatti Veyron. With the boost turned up to 2 bar on track, this stunning Porsche 964 Turbo achieved a verified 212 miles per hour at Bruntingthorpe.
Suspension setup includes KW Club Sport suspension, with Bilstein B6 currently fitted for road use. Genuine Speedline wheels, uprated Porsche turbo brakes with brand new discs, AIM digital readout in place of the tachometer. An RS-themed interior features leather-trimmed Recaro Pole Position seats.
The owner is now selling the car. Contact DSD Motorwerks for full details of this glorious and highly unique Porsche 911, which cost more than £250,000 to build!
