In much the same vein as the recently updated Bentley EXP Speed 8 and BMW M1 replica builds, we have another 2-seat endurance racing type vehicle being hand built by an enthusiast putting their own spin on things. This one starts with a blank canvas composite body and a drive-train donated from a 997 GT3, what a way to keep it in the family! Aside from the obvious appeal of this build, there’s also an abundance of CAD machining going on, for all you CNC freaks out there.

When I was a kid, Porsches were only owned by doctors or business men, or plastered on bedroom walls of kids like me. Now it’s more than obvious that the once unreachable German exotics are firmly in the grasps of people like you and I who like to tear things apart and put them back together any which way we choose. I like that, very much.
This Porka started it’s life as a 1983 targa-top, which at some point had a hardtop roof grafted on to it. That’s how Petter from Sweden found it, in a sorry state but with the roof swap already done (even though he would tweak it later to make it perfect). A full rebuild then took place, set off by an RSR body kit and some big Fuch’s to seal the deal, along with the face-smacking bright green paint. I think what I love the most about this build is the crystal clear photos that Petter takes, it makes me feel like I’m right there with him along the way. Strangely, my favourite phase of the build is seeing the car in all different colours before it was painted, what the hell is wrong with me?!
