came across this ad, its a original carrera 3.2 WTL and they made it a backdate without changing say fenders ala the front fenders, so they could build it back.

I thought ow? and how doing such without changing the front fenders?

Then I looked closer and saw they used special? made? parts so they could keep it with the original WTL wings... see this picture you can see the line in the wing after the blink lights, not a bad solution, they als made the bumpers different/longer? with cut in parts so it fitted, they kept all the original bumpers and so on, so you could if you want, build it back.

I’m sure the gold lettering would look absolutely amazing, especially if I could suggest their exact location.
On the inside of the engine cover perhaps wink

Visually it looks nice, but will there be some differences with what color you have and how you position it?

btw, wouldn't such a grille (were a rear spoiler was) look better if you mounted it on top of those mounting points instead of underneath?

wow, look at those examples which they will make 50 of, on base of the new 992

>RETRO RACERS BASED ON THE PORSCHE 911 ARE THICK, BUT NOT FROM PORSCHE, the RR1.<

said:
The first is the Rezvani Retro RR1 550. Underneath it is a Porsche 911 Carrera S that is equipped with, among other things, a carbon fiber body kit, a lower car weight and - according to Rezvani - a more direct throttle response. And further? Rezvani mentions an RR1 565 based on the GT3 and GT3 RS with - you wouldn't expect it - 565 hp. One step above is the RR1 750, a variant based on the 911 Turbo S that mobilizes 750 hp.

Rezvani produces 50 copies of the RR1. According to the Americans, the first five units will go for a friendly price of €140,000. Indeed, in the United States where there is no such thing as bpm...
and for cheap in the USA

Great photo. A car advert which focuses on driving? Wouldn't be well received today.

No range claims, no internet ready, no Apple Carplay, no contrast stitching, no hidden door handles, no huge sat-nav screens, no restraint on the dog hehe

You'd be gutted if the first comment you got was "So, you tried to make your Taycan look like a 911? Why?"

When was this taken ?

An all-round great Brit who designed the 964 Turbo shape and the 993 with Harm Largay ... and has gone on to do many wonderful things at Porsche ... our voice in the design department ?
