Is it me, or does that Porsche have a silly grin on its face? Man, the owner musta ate something really wierd to put on a body kit like that! If anything, Porsches are known to be hard to drive and a bit tail-happy when driven hard. I guess the owner needs the extra downforce from the wing to keep the rear in step!

Thats the Veilside kit, they are known for they're flamboyant designs. Most kits you see out there for Honda's where based off of this companies designs. So much that the owner sued a bunch of companies out here in so cal. I think he had one of the fastest R32's in japan in the 0-1000K run.

The front lip of that car looks like its going to fall off any second....I don't mind the wing, even though you could cook a pig on it...The front lip has to go though.

The rear wing looks like the usual one you would see on the European Porsche's. The front bumper is kinda ugly though. At least the wing looks like it is off of a actaul GT car. Its still no Gamballa (spelling is probably wrong).

That looks like a happy porche. The wing is a to little much for my tastes. Are those pockets it the wing? I wonder if you went fast enough would it rip off?

those pockets are probably supposed to be an extra intake, rear engine and I think that year was still air cooled, but I'm not sure what year it is after the kit

not sure if that intake would work though

If it is aircooled, those are probably intakes, but for motor cooling, not any type of ramair design.. the aircooled setups are designed to pull cool air fron outside, down through the sealed fan shrouding and across a bunch of fins on the cylindars and heads.. drawing hot air or missing pieces of the cooling tin would cause the older air-cooleds to overheat.. that and oil and head temps got out of hand.. I still think aircooleds were a marvelous design on mr ferdinan porches part all the way back to the mid 1930's vw designs.
