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?

WorldClassAccident 14th December 2014 17:12

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!

My 2 pence worth:

Mk3 MR2 + Covin 911 kit + splash mould from "barn find" DS front end.

Okay Chris - Is it on your development plan?

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.

Hmm, will sound out Mrs WCA

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?

How about a Z3 or Pontiac Solstice based version of this:

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

Tuesday
 
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

zagmad 23rd December 2014 14:27

Reminds me of the new jag coupe . the f type

Scottie22 23rd December 2014 14:29

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.

Scottie22 23rd December 2014 14:31

It would need dropping down a bit and some decent wheels on it........
