A US resident, Richard King, who is the owner of the repair of classic Porsche cars, bought a 911 coupe in 1968 and decided to make it the lightest 911 in the world.

To do this, he came up with a large number of holes in literally every detail of the car. He spoke about this on Friday, May 8.

  Richard is going to reduce the mass of the Porsche 911 in 2 times – up to 595 km. His masters pierced the entire body frame, and now the car is more like lace. Holes appeared even on seats, pedals, a steering wheel, an inside-door mirror mount, wheels and on the gearbox housing.

 In addition to endless drilling, the car was equipped with external fiberglass panels, and the motor and chassis acquired custom aluminum and forged parts. They even replaced hoses with more lightweight analogues.

It should be emphasized that the current Porsche 911 are equipped with 3.0- and 4.0-liter power units with a capacity of 345 to 700 hp.
