    Turning a Porsche into a kit car?

    Has any one ever heard of taking a wrecked Porsche and making a Lambo out of it? How well do you think that would work?

    not well, a 911 is rear engined, not mid engined, and has a very, very short wheelbase, also the metal roof structure is very distinctly 911, there is no commonality in any dimensions any where on the cars

    I still think it would be hard for me to tear apart a perfectly good boxster to make a kitcar out of it. :-\

    I agree. You will enjoy the boxster more as a boxster.

    What the difference between a Porsche and Porcupine?

    No prizes for guessing.

    all the drawbacks I mentioned apply to the Boxster as well, and the Boxster has even more issues of its own than a 911, there is no Porsche that readily will take a Ferrari/Lambo body

    Hey Hawk, I have both!! lambo replica and a 911. PLEASE DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!! If you want a nice 911 cabriolet let me know.

    If you want a lambo replica -THINK TWICE, maybe THREE TIMES, TONS OF WORK, TONS of $$

    Just my .02 worth
