That ^^ has been seen before here ,or possibly the opposite thread.

Was quite a while ago......smile

If that scoop is necessary to clear a huge supercharger on a huge V8 in place of a temperamental V12 then it's acceptable......

just about.
Yes, apologies, I couldn't remember if I'd posted or not.
I spotted it in Mechanicsburg PA back in June 2017.

RE the RWB Porsches, I'm not a huge fan of them but there's a couple I do like.

Phil Morrison, owner @ Driftworks has a verey cool one with properly blended arches, and it does pack a punch. Photo and link to an article on it below. He's also got a few very cool projects, even if you're not a drifter. The famous V10 E46 M3, DW86 & the ongoing Murcielago LP640 with manual, RWD & ITB convertion which is currently getting a GT1 bodykit fitted.

At least that looks like it's been done properly rather that the usual 'hacksaw and rivet gun' approach

Yeah I'd refer the original whale tail.

Saying that, I think a narrow-body 964 on Cup 2's is still the best looking iteration.

May not be as bad as you'd expect. Quite modest power by today's standards.

Other way round for me, I think that looks pretty gopping hehe

Individual tastes though, that's the main thing! Variety is the spice of life.

Are you saying it's not possible to fit a non-OEM kit without resorting to self-tapping screws and tiger seal?
I'm saying most bodykits are not well crafted to start with! Filler hides a lot of sins laugh

HM-2 said:
It's not a GT2- it's a 993 C2 built to 3.8 RSR spec and then a little bit more.
So my point still stands. laugh

RWB costs whatever they cost and this 993 costs probably 3 or 4 times that!

Great comparison!

The kits alone are $24k+, before you start throwing options, additional modifications, as per https://rwb.jp/rwb-style/rwb-993-wide-body/.

An RWB 993 kit, wheels, suspension and additional options is a whisker under forty grand.


Given the likes of Tech 9 will build you a 3.8 motor with 320-340bhp for £20k, and a full 993 RSR kit from Werks911 is $8k, I doubt the difference is anywhere near as stark as you suggest.

Dave Kindig builds awesome cars... that GTO is fabulous.
He really does. Don't think there are many of his cars I don't love. And even those that don't fit my taste are so beautifully made. Proper team of craftsmen.

My absolute favourite is the 1952 Pontiac 'Mischief' he built. So many really subtle body modifications that are so integrated into the design the body looks almost stock.
Looks like a fantastic cool cruiser... however under the skin is completely updated with modern suspension, brakes and a Supercharged LS3 crate engine putting out 635bhp




Personally I think it deserves to be in this thread biggrin

You’ve hit the nail on the head there. The guys that work for him are able to create his vision perfectly. The fabrication and body work skills, the attention to detail, just incredible.

The welding on Jordan’s hand made exhausts, for example yikes

When I was a kid a bloke round the corner had a Grand Prix (same shape). In the seventies, in East London, to see a leviathan like this rumble past was quite something.

Loving that 934 look ,962 powered convertible.

I prefer the look of a 934 to a 935.

Just paint it orange with Jägermeister livery.

Canepa's been trying to sell that thing for as long as I've been looking at Porches for sale!
