Found This on Craigslist!

What do you think? Often wondered what a current front clip would look on our cars...
Picture of 911 front on 944...

Interesting, I would like to see it finished and painted. Not sure if I like it.

+1 on the painted and finished!

Actually, I'd like to see what a Cayman front end on our cars would look like

I think it would look quite good all done right. I don't care for their wheel choice though.

The Cayman front might even be cut and grafted to fit the 944 flip up headlights. Then it could be ugly, and have pop up headlights.

Looks kind of like a dodge neon. This 944 might look better with the cayman headlights, but the PO has some custom, simi round headlights that have to fit that bumper. It's a very strange choice of a modification to do to a 944.

Thanks for finding that picture. I was wondering what it looked like finished. I might be the odd one here, but I like it. I don't think I would spend the time or money to actually do it, but I like it.

Thats OD's car from Rennlist. its not the same car or the same front clip. his is a 968 with 993 headlights, reshaped guards to match. separately, he grafted a 997 front valence into his 968 valence. The car was originally white and with these changes he had it resprayed this blue.

the 968 looks a little awkward, kinda like C3PO with that droid head. the quarters should have been reworked to have a little more less of the original lines but if I was spending that kind of time and money I would have had some of the '44 fender contours worked in those fenders..
The 1988 porsche 944 w/2006 911 nose might look decent.. maybe it was a salvage car, I'd like to find a wreck and rebuild it with a newer interior.

I was thinking that pulling a Foose on it and cutting 4" out of the nose like he did to the Lotus. Me thinks that might work!
