    Default Speedhunters profile of a Franken-Porsche after Jack Olsen's heart

    This car borrows parts from nearly every generation of 911 from 964 up. The bare shifter assembly and wrapped/stitched roll bar are two of my favorite aesthetic touches.

    That looks like a really nicely-done car.

    It's odd that they went for the two-color 'PORSCHE' decal on the side, since that's such a recognizable part of the Singer. But this seems, in some ways, more of a 911 enthusiast's version of the early 911, and less of a rich-guy's version of the early 911. The Singer is a lot more refined, I think. Like a designer and an engineer got together. This one looks more like it was just the engineer, something like the PVX project that Evo made a couple of years back.

    Thanks for posting the link, though. I hadn't seen the Speed Hunters article yet.

    I would love to take an 87-89 G50 car and build something like this, or Jack's car, but I can't afford to. Egads, those cars are expensive.

    Very nice, but I'd like to see it with 15 inch diameter Fuchs.
