Don't get me wrong, I prefer to look at the soft sleek lines of women too, but damn those 993TT's look sexy!

I don't think that comment was necessary. Most of us are adults here and respect the work that goes in to making our dreams come true. OUR dreams, not yours.

Merv - do what you will with your car but I feel it would be a mistake to re-body a factory 491. The first thing that comes to mind when I see a car with a 993 "kit" is "salvage title". It will destroy resale, which is what you need to do if you want a 993TT mega wide body.

I do strongly agree, the black 993TT pictured is as bad as they get. Awesome looking car.

Relax, it was said in jest. I did'nt say they look crap, in fact quite the opposite, I like the look. I am saying they are common. Don't take things to heart!

RarlyL8, I think you're right. I too wonder why an owner performed a 993TT conversion on an earlier car and I always assume it's been in a serious accident

I really like the C2T look. It maintains the classic look of the pre-89 cars, but has the smoother more modern bumpers.

What do you guys think of this BB GT2 style C2T bumper?

http://www.betterbodiesmotorsport.com/interiors/fbumpers1/bbgt2frbumper.html

I like it! Looks aggressive, without being too over-the-top ricey

not too many great things said or better bodies. They actually have a cool rear that looks good with the early reflector, not too sure about the wire us the money cause we're concerned about credit card fraud bs...

this is close

I've dealt with BB before and haven't had any issues. NRAuto is also another supplier I've dealt with in the past.

What about the Kremer style extended rear wings? U guys like those?

I'm wondering how the following would look:

- C2T Euro 3 piece rear bumper
- BB GT2 C2T front bumper
- C2T rockers
- Kremer extended rear tail (or RS3.8 Turbo Tail)

The Kremer tail looks BAD ASS! Whenever I see one of those on a 930, it makes me think, "There must be some serious intercooling tucked in under there!"

persoanlly I would do nothing to a cab as yours looks pretty tough right now more of sleeper then one with a body kit. Kinda funny though I tried my hardest to make mine look as stock 930 like as possible.. Different tastes for all

Even my girl gets mad at me if I stare at my car to long, she might take it as a type of cheating I think.
Yes, the 993 tt and especially the ultra wide 993tt's look may provoke something she really wont like.

If it were me personaly merv, I would make your car into a convertable version of the yellow bird with the front bumper and rear bumper. I think this is the most economicly viable solution ( Im not saying money is a factor for you). Im just taking into account what rarelyl8 says about cutting the car up. If you use the yellow bird bumpers and keep the fenders as is, you could bring it back to stock to sell it (ultamite goal of 993TT ) and at the same time you dont have to screw around getting the C2/4 lighting ($1,000+ for new parts).

Yeah, I like the yellowbird look too. I just prefer the C2T look as it brings the car into the 90's, as opposed to being stuck in the 80's. My budget would cover the new C2T lighting and rear reflector mod etc...

I figure I could sell my stock bumpers, 930S front spoiler & OEM 930 Turbo Tail& mirrors to re-coupe some of the costs

There would also be a significant weight reduction going to f/glass bits

I like them all...

On Bettter Bodies, they suck. Any place that only wants cash and won't take a credit card is a rip off in my experience (with them).

This SKT body kit looks good too. I like the brake ducts in the rockers

Be advised that you have to cut the body to add those brake ducts!
Also know that the entire rocker pannel has to come off when ever you adjust the rear ride hieght or need to get at the torsion bars.
Ask me how I know.

Brian, it sounds like you figured that out the hard way.

Just put some smooth bumpers on it. You'll be happy.


I've seen pics of this car here and there through out the boards but was hoping for a few more. Nice look.
