A Porsche Boxter with a Citroen DS nose???

Sounds nuts but it might just turn out to be quite interesting!

I don't get it, a decent 911 from the 80s is 20k, a DS probably nearer 30k. Why would you chop one of them up to look like a frankenstein version of the other?

That's why I switched to the Cayman. Gets rid of the push you pull me looks

Must be a lot of people agree with that sentiment myself included!

Not without "funding" and my waiting list is rather long at the moment. But as always, happy to discuss.

BTW you would look far cooler in the "round door" Nick.

I think there is a big difference in price between buying a used Boxter and a Cayman.
You can find a Cayman style hardtop by Zeintop which is made for the Boxter.

Has anyone thought of a Porsche body with the front of the best Citroen ever, the Maserati Citroen SM?

Just been looking through this thread and thought I'd add my thoughts. Has anyone considered the Aston Martin DB5? James Bonds car. I'm thinking of it also as a commercially viable option for Chris, Everybody loves my MX but as classic car the DB has a lot of admirer's and I think it may be a commercial success. Problem is, what car do you base it on?

Hi dsg4meb,
Just wondered :-). How would a 250swb look with a 250 GTE 2+2 grill. With the lights in the grill. Thought best to keep it in the Ferrari family this time. If you have a spare 5 mins

If Chris started knocking some thing like this out in bolt-on panel form,
I think even I would be interested.
This must have been Volkwagen's best kept secret, and is a VW SP2 from 1974.

Extemely rare now, they did not sell well as they were under powered, (1700cc air cooled)

The SP stood for "Sao Paulo" as they were made in Brazil at the time.

Would suit front engine. With a muscle car grill. Shape looks great. Especially the back end

Just what I thought Zag, really nice shape, only discovered it yesterday!
Brazil only exported several hundred of them, and by all accounts there are only 5 in the whole of the US, which makes it very rare.
