Nostalgia lies in the detail.
In addition to the "scaled grace" of the KAEGE RETRO, we have put our heart and soul into the details: chrome trims, bumpers, lights and tank and oil covers ensure nostalgic perfection – even with a very close look.
More beautiful. And easier.
By using carbon components, we have not only added the authentic effect of modern components, but also achieved a weight saving of over 100 kilograms compared to the original 993. Contemporary lightweight construction, which makes itself felt strongly in vehicle handling and consumption.
Reinventing the old wheel.
No compromises in appearance, but as modern, safe and powerful as possible. This also applies to tires and rims. Here we are – as with many other features also – open to your wishes. The Classic we use as standard a three-piece wheel in a classic design.
Sound and performance.
The tailor-made exhaust system is one of the selected things, in which we have decided for a redesign and against the original. The sound, the look and the performance characteristics prove us right.
Let yourself be impressed by the possibilities of the interior design of the KAEGE RETRO, which of course can be accentuated and manufactured according to individual preferences. From the door panels to the center console, it embraces the flair of the seventies in perfection.
Ergonomic Recaro seats provide the ultimate in comfort when driving into the good old days, and should you want to hear something other than the tune of the 300 hp engine – the loudspeakers of the high-performance sound system discreetly blend into the interior ensemble.
Cockpit for time travel.
In the area around the steering wheel KAEGE RETRO every move is a sensual experience: high-quality workmanship, visual accents and tactile finesse every kilometer to enjoy: a leather steering wheel that flatters your hand, classically interpreted indicators, high-end radio navigation system in Vintage Look and a dashboard for a consistent interior design. Of course with airbag.
Luggage room with ambience.
Good style goes on with the KAEGE RETRO under the hood: High-quality, refined and designed according to your wishes is also the trunk. As with the classic car, it offers space for light luggage.
Always there: enthusiasm.
Air-cooled to perfection.
The KAEGE RETRO CLASSIC is a completely revised machine from the 993 – and thus the best air-cooled series technology ever installed in Swabia. Finely disassembled, tested, fine balanced and reassembled, the unit takes on extremely sophisticated, smooth and stable.
Through careful fine tuning, we have been able to increase the output from 3.6 liters to 300 hp and more. Classic 911 feeling. Thanks to the built-in hydraulic tappets, the RETRO is very low-maintenance – but thanks to its OBD capability, it can be easily handled by any Porsche dealer.
It is a matter of honor that in this "flagship project" made by KAEGE we also incorporate the well-known KW chassis. Comfort, cushioning and sportiness are unsurpassed in the chassis of this manufacturer – and are also good for the Kaege RETRO.
Quite the 993th
As with the six-cylinder engine, we did not change much even with the six-speed gearbox of the 993. Although outdated and tested on the heart and sprocket: Some things are just as good as they are.
With ease for powerful impulses.
Save weight with reliable performance – this premise also applied to the choice of battery. That's why we chose a Liteblox lithium battery again. A real lightweight made in Germany, proven and race-tested.
A matter of safety: When it comes to front headlights, "the good old days" felt much longer than other components. Reason enough for us at KAEGE RETRO to sell our own-production LED headlights.
They blend in perfectly with the visual look, but are decades ahead of their predecessor when it comes to economy, light intensity and durability.
Recaro, logical ..
Ergonomically perfect, ultimately comfortable and safe: Logically, that in the RETRO also in the seats have made the best of what the market holds ready. No matter which design you choose – test seating is worthwhile!
Cool head on time travel.
On some blessings of modern times, we were particularly happy with the 993: in contrast to the F-model, the series already had air conditioning. Completely outdated, the RETRO in addition to the optional sunroof ensures that every enjoyment trip is not just about enthusiasm, but also about the optimum temperature.
