Looks good to me. Is there a 993 to 964 backdate kit for aircooled? That would be perfect for me.

Got to take your hat off to the sheer amount of work in that 996, plus the degree to which it is executed.

I think we’ve had a thread on this before?

I’ll post this again anyway. Wink

The rear overhang reminds me of this =



It’s not for me. Looks wrong from pretty much every angle. nooo
Unfortunately there’s only one way of getting the retro look. Buy the old car.

I like the basic shape, not sure about the retro front and rear.

To me the great thing about the 996 was that it looked forward, not back.

Looks like FZP started that.....must be your age T8.

I was gonna tag it on to that thread but my post was more about this new article on these guys in Spain rather than discussing retro conversions Wink

The level of craftsmanship that looks to have gone into it look pretty impressive, but it just doesn't look right. The rear overhang seems huge and front ahead of the lights looks somewhat deformed. I quite dislike singer-style spoilers too.

The wide arches look great to me though. The channeled bonnet is also super cool, wonder if one could be made for a relatively standard 996...

I like it a lot, except for the overhangs

I reckon 20 or 21" wheels (with the necessary bigger arches) would fix that, or at least go a long way to improving the looks

Doesn't anyone here do Photoshop? Grin

Front is ok, back is too long. Wheels look tiny. Odd car...
