Spyder 986 ?

This is a sweet looking spyder, never seen it before!
Anyone know if they make kits to convert your 986?

Looks like a really cool custom job. Not sure where to get it unfortunately. Good luck with the search.

Sorry, hideous!

That was featured on one of the blogs. It was 100% custom using.... a Mercedes.....which should tell you how wrong it is by design.

The OP's car is interesting. The 550 replica is also interesting, but compared to a 550 or the Beck kit, it is huge. The last car really makes me smile, and I love the writer's description of it!
