In any other application—a resto-mod Nova or pro-touring Camaro, for instance—that engine might warrant the “needs more power” response from the peanut gallery. In this instance, we would imagine it offers more than enough grunt. Much more. In fact, the 270-hp flat-six it replaced was a hot foot on its own, clocking zero to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. It isn’t a motor for the faint of heart, nor does it look it.
According to the owner, the Porsche dresses in a Vogue Auto Design widebody kit and slips on an adjustable front splitter. Fans of the rarified 993 GT2, rejoice. The 911 also slaps on a GT2 “banana” wing, because you can never have enough downforce.
Crucially, the widebody 911 adopts a techy AccuAir self-leveling coilover suspension, which ought to help keep this car’s nose pointing where you want it. The sticky Toyo Proxes tires aren’t a bad addition in that respect either.
Thinking of building something similar for your weekend pops to the grocery? Raid the piggy bank. This car is said to have tallied up a $90,000 build price. Now it’s listed on eBay, reserve unmet.
