I would take that car based on looks alone. The engine would be icing on the cake.

Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am pretty sure that is just a gemballa body kit (might be ruf). They sell a special muffler that relocates the tips so you can buy that rear bumper. What I have to say about that car is
1: how does the intercooler cool without air flow, the turbo 911'shave the intercooler there because they have ducts to make air pass over it.
2. I hope they were able to put a wider tire in the rear because a stock turbo has like a 305, and I am getting rims that can hold a 275, and thats pushing it.
3. I really really hope they completely re-braced the car. If any of you think you have chasis flex now, imagine another 250 hp.
4. I wanna see that thing screaming down the autobahn!
P.S. my comment got deleted again, luckily I copied it before submiting....

Potential answer:

1) I don't know much about turbos or intercoolers, but in the trunk picture there looks like large pipes on both sides (towards the firewall) and may have some duct work on each side too (the square metal boxes).

It is a Gemballa body kit. Imagine Auto did one of these on a Black 2000 Boxster S a few years back. While they did do the body kit they did not do many performance mods to it besides exhaust, intake and GIAC ecu mapping.

It looked great in person!

Bmus, no kidding...probably wouldn't even get out of the parking lot without having a mess. Maybe I could put some hickory chips in there and smoke a ham.
