We receive information on Restomod projects based on Porsche almost daily. Not until this morning RUF RCT Evo with 420 PS and now it goes on. And with vehicles from tuner Kalmar Automotive from Denmark. The company is relatively new to the industry and is initially starting with 3 models. And one is a cayenne. But let's get to the classic XNUMX first. Namely for Squid 7-97. It is a creation for the nine-time Le Mans 24-hour winner, Tom Kristensen. But the unique piece should not remain a unique piece. Kalmar Automotive also manufactures the Kalmar 7-97 for anyone else who is interested. But the name of the model remains unchanged. It comes from Kristensen's first victory in the famous Le Mans race in 1997 at the wheel of a Joest Porsche WSC-95 with the number 7.
Kalmar Automotive 7-97 Restomod
The 7-97 consists of components from a 964 and 993, but sports the look of the 1960 from the 70s and early 3,8s. For a more modern touch, there were a few chrome-plated details such as the engine cover, which is an active spoiler, and a few applications on the front. Incidentally, typically Restomod, it is equipped with ultra-modern headlights and of course the rear lights are also equipped with the latest LED technology. Inside, Kalmar manufactures each vehicle specifically according to customer requirements in order to obtain the perfect interior. From racing bucket seats to leather-covered series seats to various tartan fabric samples, everything is available. And the engine can also be selected individually. Everything is possible from the 4,3 to 7 liter six-cylinder boxer. Depending on the specification, the 97-400 can then generate over 298 hp (XNUMX kW). And Kalmar also has a six-speed manual transmission in its range.
Kalmar RS for off-road use
It continues with the Kalmar RS. It is clearly inspired by the 911 rally cars of days gone by. Visually a typical 964, Kalmar ensures that the athlete functions optimally in off-road use. For example, there was underbody protection, there was a spare wheel carrier installed on the roof and there were also a few changes in the interior. In addition to the standard equipment with air conditioning, there was a roll bar at the rear, and customers can also have Recaro sports seats and all the safety equipment they need for a real rally installed. Incidentally, the off-roader is powered by a 3,6-liter six-cylinder boxer, which is coupled to either a five-speed or a six-speed gearbox. Incidentally, the chassis including the lift is adjustable so that a ground clearance of up to 20 centimeters is guaranteed.
Kalmar Tuning on the Porsche Cayenne
And, as already mentioned, Kalmar also has a tuned Cayenne in its range. Although the body is mostly standard here, apart from the large roof rack, which can carry all kinds of equipment, the chassis is 10 centimeters higher. And the wheel / tire setup is also new. It is specially designed for off-road use. Interested parties have a variety of customization options, depending on what they want to do with the vehicle. Regardless of whether it is a roll cage, improved fuel tanks with a long range and any equipment for extremely robust off-road use, Kalmar makes it possible.
