Not exactly what I would have done with a Porsche, but one learns a bit of tollerance for other ideas as one gets older. I think I would have LOVED to do something like that in a replica Cobra however!

I don't know that I would brand this butt-fugly, so I'll be kind and call it "unique". But it's totally lost the marque; it is verboten to modernize such a classic.

Bet it would be a kick in the posterior region to drive, though, with all the V8 torque.

Well now...if they had only made it a mid engine while they were at it...hummmm.

Somebody cetainly did put a lot of time & effort into this project, you can't say it is a hack job, as it appears reasonable thought went into the design & execution.

Different strokes for different folks!

It made my eyes burn... Next time put up a warning. I assumed it was something great like that yellow turbo 3.6 clone and instead I fumbled the mouse off of my desk trying to close out the browser window as fast as I could.

Question Every mother loves her baby!

It was someone's dream and will become one else's nightmare over time. It's a money pit that will never end. But whoever purchases I hope is happy, so be it. Not to my taste in style or safety, but I'm not the one laying $16,000 out for it.
Cheers

Love the responses. Not for me either, and I am no purist myself.
Oh and that yellow 3.6 T is bad a**.

OK next time I will give you all a warning.

ive got a couple of v8 cars, but neither look like that. looks like some nice work but way off the page for me. i imagine that the car is very heavy to the rear with all the plumbing and two turboes and what appears to be a steel block. way too much stuff in the front. so they dont need to look so different. here is 700 plus chp in an almost stock appearing 930..mast motorsports modified ls7 naturally aspirated, drive by wire, and 93 octane fuel.
