Looks great to me. Needs a mirror....and an engine. That will make all the difference.

Welcome to yet another European - and Scandinavian !!!!

The color looks great and I am really impressed with your set up in the first picture. Is those wooden "jack stands" the only things holding the car up ?

Cheers,

lower it
paint the targa bar in wurth satin black
paint the center of those wheel black
What is the rounded glass in the quarter windows?
The black window tinting in my opinion is a bit overdone a black porsche is menacing enough.

Congratulations on your work. The world needs more turbo bodied targas.

Black is a classic color on any car....especially a Porsche!

Maybe some Carrera or Porsche scripts on the sides will break up the color a little and make it seem less black.

I think the color looks good. Maybe lose the window tinting.

It looks like you tinted the front windshield too. I think you will find that hurts forward visibility. Here in the US that would be illegal.

And I hate to sound like your mother, but this is not safe:





You obviously got away without being crushed, but for anyone else thinking about doing something similar - don't. Seriously, don't.

My 930 is black. I preferred silver, but now I'm liking the black better (or at least as much) and I'm thinking of getting black wheels for a completely black look.

I think it looks great but I'd paint the wheels black as well.

Also, listen to Chuck, that is scary.

I vote for no window tinting. Otherwise, once the motor is in and the car is sitting right, it should look great. Nice car and welcome!

- Sell the wheels for something darker and more modern
- Satin-black on the targa bar
- Sell the tail for a duck-tail or something smaller

I think the combo of the bright silver wheels and the heavy wing really throw off the lines for this car. If it were mine, I would probably go with a duck or carrera tail (anything smaller than a turbo tail) and some K5s/K10s or other modern wheels. The C2 bodywork needs updated wheels to match it, and the lines of the targa body are too disjointed to accommodate the larger wings. Just my opinion.

edit: sell the wheels, not the whole car!

Looks like a common way to do it
Sometimes you do what you have to, but that would scare the heck out of me.
BTW I love the color

Paint the wheels black, then drive 1000 miled behind a gravel truck. That should have things just about perfect.
