DP Turbo Tail

Are there any identifying marks on a DP extended turbo tail?

I just picked up a piece from a race shop and it looks like the DP tail, has a nice quality to it and is molded to fit an oem rubber lip.

Thanks
Andrew M

I think the original DP tails had "DP" embossed into the tail.

Care to post up some pics???

Andrew are you building a turbo now? I keep thinking about that early bumper you have.

I'll take a closer look tonight for any DP logo

Keith -
I'm keeping the 70 asa weekend / track car, but am on the lookout for a cheap turbo project Although if I buy it piece by piece it won't be so cheap!

DP stamping on the tail rubber of a DP935

I was sure I saw this discussed maybe this will help.

I started that thread above but had no response. My DP car has a regular factory Porsche tail rubber with the Porsche embossed crest. I noticed that embossed DP emblem on an Ebay car.

That picture lookes like a branding iron ( must be a very early one ) that was used on the standard Porsche rubber. DP Motorsports built Kremer tails with no identification for Kremer and sold other variations in the authorized DP Motorsports parts to upgrade your 930 outlets. Some DP tails on their later production cars had DP embossed on the fibreglass portion in a similar fashion as they embossed the rocker panels in 2nd photo. The tail photo is of a Kremer car as is the rocker photo.

Nice! A Dp tail from DP Motorsports in Germany costs an arm and a leg! Last time I looked into it, it cost something like 1,600 Euros

You can get exact f/glass replica's from Rennspd for significantly cheaper tho

Well, I'm still not 100% sure of what I have - It's looks pretty old and has a few marks from being on the shelf for so long. There are no DP logos on it, so it may be a repro (although most repros I've seen include a molded lip and no provision for an oem rubber one). Construction looks to be a mix of fiberglass mat with woven cloth for strength.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Andrew M

Yeah, that does look like a repro DP/Kremer unit... shoot Rennspd an e-mail with these pics. It might be one of theirs? Or perhaps Better Bodies Motorsports?
