This Porsche 911 (996) has one Protective armor installed ex works! And so it should remain a unique piece that never went on sale. The basis for the one-time project is a 911 Carrera of the 996 generation and thus the fifth generation of the 911. The 996 was a brave step for Porsche at the time, as they switched from air-cooled engines to water-cooled ones. And then there were the frowned upon fried egg headlights. In short, it was anything but easy for the 996. And Porsche actually did back then ones have a 996 as the basis for an all-round armored vehicle taken. And the 90 is now presented in the video of “That Nine Eleven Guy” on YouTube. There it is said that the background was an order from a customer at the time. In the 996s there was a Porsche fan who asked if Porsche could build an armored car. Porsche said YES, took a XNUMX off the assembly line, and added several invisible protective layers to it.

Underneath 20 mm strong and specially reinforced Glass all around and also the body parts were changed. However, Porsche made a decision here can not be for Steel, because the dynamics of the 996 should remain as true to the original as possible, but used Dyneema. This is a composite fiber that is roughly the same weight as steel, but offers 15 times the strength. And Porsche has managed to block the changes in such a way that you can use them only then can recognize, if a door opens and thicker Glass sees. Cool thing!
