Bastard 930/80s relic... Kinda cool

This car speaks to me. I know its a bastard in every sense but those outrageous wheels coupled with the targa slope nose really personify what mid 80s excess was all about. Those were the days!

Just to make sure I have this correct: this is a non-factory slant, non-factory turbo? At least it's a US model car, though.

Hmmmmmm,

Serious 80's machine...

Obiviously a converted SC as Porsche didn't build Turbo body Targas back then.

Also.. did anybody notice the large torsion bar holes in the 1/4 panels?

The listed it as a five speed.. looks as though somone did a G50 conversion also!

Even so, they wont get they're money for this one I don't think!

I quite like it.
It is probably still just a 915 5speed though.

"ELECTOMOTIVE 6 CYLINDER MODULE FUEL INJECTION"? That's an early Electromotive HPV-1 crank fire single plug ignition system on a CIS fuel injected engine. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

Just way too many unknowns with this car to purchase is over ebay. That ad raises more questions than it answers. What are the odds that they've got the documentation for the body, suspension, brake, and motor mods?

Just a quick look tells me that he conversion was done in a lees that optimum fashion. The headlight covers don't match up with the fenders and the brake vents are poorly done.
