    Can't remember company name but conversion cost was £55k plus your donor car. Being done in America by Starke.

    I’ve found a Starke one,it looks nothing like it!the windscreen on the stark looks massive,in fact I can only find computer images of a finished car.

    That silver thing is a Boxster with a body kit basically. It looks much better in the pictures than it did in real life. It was way to big and the proportions were all wrong making it look odd and ungainly. That's only my opinion for what its worth. 

    89 944 S2 new floor. sills. and loads of other sheet metal,968cs arbs, rebuilt engine,rebuilt brakes.all new poly bushes and mounts,968 castor mounts,968 cs steering wheel,cup 1 17 inch 7.5 and 9 inch wheels,and loads of other bits new as well.

    Don't hold back Colin ..that silver thing    Correct would need to see it in the flesh to make ones mind up ..just looks good in the photo but at £55K for the kit would rather just buy a Speedster from the likes of Vintage /Chesil /Speedster Clinic for £10K cheaper and buy a  987 as well..

    It’s like one of those big 4x4 fiat 500 things. They just don’t look right.

    Have to agree the car was far too big! Outside looks clashed with interior for me. Outside looked to have been done to good standard but the tired interior let it down. Looked at price and didn't bother checking who built it
