no engine pics?? wtf

would've looked cooler if he molded the rear fenders into the body a bit. from the outside, it just looks like he stuck the side vents on there, kinda like those clowns that put those chrome "vent" stickers on the front of their cars??? (ugh)

the interior looks really nice though!

i'd drive it, but I'm still curious as to how he mounted the engine. i bet it's loud inside lol

Bug 914

After college I bought a Bug with a blown motor. Dropped in a 914 engine. Fit and worked perfectly. No great horsepower surge, but it was fun to brag I had a Porsche engine in my Bug.

I believe the chassis, drive train and engine is from the boxster. The creator just placed the bug over the boxster engine.

By far the best bug I've ever seen, thanks for sharing mate. I'd pay money to be able to give this one a go. Brilliant work
