Visually of looks quite smart. The concept I quite like and 25k is cheap IF the work is solid and done correctly. But it's called 'Dark Secret'. Classy. Not.

I have a few names......"Dark knight"...."black mamba GT"... and "Blackdawn".

But to be frankly serious, although its not my cup of english breakfast tea, alot of effort put in.

I would have folded as soon as i heard bespoke or fabricated parts.

I like most of it...

Don't like the front PU or the stereo headunit and would want to take a long hard look at the finish of the roof.

£25k sounds pretty good though. As long as you don't plan to sell it...

Could it be considered a very cheap (considering 964 prices) 964 platform that you could send to Singer............. of course the roof is an issue

The guy also manufactured the steering wheel himself from a 996 wheel!!

I have to say, I like it!

Though if it were me I'd be ditching the tippy, replacing with a 993 6 speed.

Hat off to the owner for the work and dedication to this project and at 25 Bags it is great value. It would probably break for similar money. Very Happy

Not my cup of tea though and those wheels will be proper boat anchors!
