When cruising down the road, there’s still a pretty realistic chance that you run into a few 100% nanny free Porsches. So no, you don’t need to visit Magnus Walker’s Porsche cave in Downtown Los Angeles, to get a taste of the real stuff.
Driving retro. To be honest, would you really drive a ‘nanny free’ early 911? An air-cooled Porsche without any fancy modern equipment like ABS, air-conditioning or even power steering? Probably not every day. But you are still in love with the silhouette of the pure real Porsche from the early days, aren’t you? Then take a closer look at this German masterpiece. This isn’t really a ‘nanny free’ Porsche. It isn’t even a real 1972 F-series 911.
A nanny crush. Roger Kaege, a passionate Porsche enthusiast, combines the advanced air-cooled series Porsche 911 (993) engineering with the typical look of the original 911 from the late 60’s and early 70’s. The air-cooled 3.6 liter engine in the back produces 300 hp. With a weight of approximately a modern Smart, this Porsche is fast and furious in a lot less than 90 minutes. Thanks to the modern rubber and the modern KW shocks the Kaege owns the road.
This shocks are made for driving. Driving fast. Beneath it’s F-Body shell this handcrafted Porsche uses Porsche 911 (993) Variant 3 kit from KW automotive. The suspension kit features independently adjustable shocks in rebound and compression forces and is a custom build for Roger Kaege. The shocks, the damper valves, damper piston rods and springs are tailormade for the axle loads of the 993 in the shell of a legendary F-Body Porsche 911.
Old but gold. The best air-cooled engines, that Porsche produced in series, in combination with the indeed timelessly charming F model design of 1972 is the perfect package for everybody who didn’t want to give up his modern ‘nanny features’. This old looking Porsche features everything you want. If you have two left hands: six-speed gearbox, modern brakes, multi-link rear suspension, airbags, and the OBD capability. You can bring this car to every official Porsche Workshop and the mechanics can service your car. And just in case they have no idea what to do, the software will tell them…
Take a walk on the wild side. This Porsche isn’t cheap. But if you love cars, you never count pennies. Every fender, every bit and part are handcrafted to perfection. The team of Kaege even build the carbon fiber parts. But enough small talk. Time to go and enjoy the soundtrack of this Kaege…
Suspension Tech Info: The KW Clubsport 2-way coilover suspension kits are just independently adjustable in the bump (TVC-A, Twin Valve Compression-Adjustable) and rebound (TVR-A, Twin Valve Rebound-Adjustable), each tuned separately in the low-speed range. Compared to the original equipment, even an old legendary sports care like a Porsche 911 (993) with a KW Clubsport suspension steers much more directly and also benefits from razor-sharp handling at the limit. Even on load changes, the Porsche remains good-natured with our KW suspension.
