Once there was a 993rd
It all started with a vision. Although it sounds like a fairy tale - just was not it.
Actually, it just started with a Porsche 993, which we acquired in 2010 and have only given it in our warehouses do not carry much significance. Its design - a whim of the nineties, his drive but was the most advanced air-cooled, which was ever built in Zuffenhausen. And so it was that at that time we not only increasingly these 993 surrounded - but had made friends with an idea that was as exciting ludicrously:
Why not just give these technical substance the classic look that it deserves?
Inspired by an idea.
Thus the spirit out of the bottle and our ambition was awakened speak: We realized we would unite genes of the air-cooled 993 with enhanced appearance of F-model, one of the finest sports cars ever built.
The perfect technique in perfect nostalgic look. We took up the challenge and knew that we had to be virtuosic now masters the whole range of body craft.
According consuming itself designed surveying, converting, resizing and approximations of the perfect, authentic look.
Front and rear, now as before.
Interpret, scale, design, manufacture: For the bumper, the entire rear or the front hood we have reinvented the wheel, so to speak, that everything looks like always.
Where possible and appropriate, we have worked with carbon - with the pleasant side effect that the Kaege Retro now not only looks better but also a little lighter than the original 993rd
Paint in sight.
Disassembling what belongs together: From the fenders over the side panel to the sill - a vision initially a lot to do on their way to reality with perseverance.
Until a moment comes, which is as large as a matter of taste: The color.
Although we tend to classic shades - a Kaege RETRO can distort anything. Whether strong statement or nostalgic reminiscence: The paint is left to you.
The axis of the beautiful.
It had to be fiddled: Only the axles of 993 take considerably wider than that of the F model.
Needless to say that the very fact of our team have a keen eye and a lot of forethought was necessary to preserve the overall proportions at the end. For months.
Against this background, it was almost refreshing to be in between to take care of the tank or oil cap and similar nostalgic details in perfect look.
When each component is added to a symphony at the end, an idea becomes reality.
And there were many components.
The good old days all due respect, the chassis and the wheels, we have resorted to the blessings of modernity. Of course, without that you realize it.

Quite the 993rd
As with the six-cylinder engine , we also have the six-speed gearbox of the 993 little changed . Although overhauled and tested for heart and sprocket: Some things are good as they are .
The brake system
Nämliches applies to the braking system . She comes overhauled the 993 and has lost nothing of its value for such a sporty and safe driving experience .

Less weight, reliable performance - this premise also applied when selecting the battery . We have therefore decided to back us for a Lite Blox lithium battery . A lightweight made in Germany , proven and tested racing .

The radio navigation system
Infotainment with understatement .
Dashboards and instrument panels were designed even more modest fifty years ago . Large touch screens have no place here - and lost nothing in our opinion .
