Wild Japense 986 Racecars

In my ten years of Boxster ownership and Boxster Googling I somehow have never seen of these cars. They belong to Arktech Motor Sports and unfortunately I don't have any information on them except that despite their looks they are built on 986 chassis. The top is interesting, it looks like its built off of the factory shape





I can't find a non flicker photo but this is a great one

“Suspension F:

Interesting, the suspension must be totally custom. I wish I had a picture of what they did. Looking at the frame photos they retained the frame rails so I assumed they used factory suspension points but I guess not

I wish the pictures were higher resolution for a better peek at the mods. I'm guessing there's not a lot of the original car by the time they finished the evolution.






So Stu, I saw the cardboard pics. Are you going to go full Arktech now?

Awesome you found a suspension picture.

I might give the flares a shot I made a couple more cardboard templates that are closer. I have a track event in two weeks though so I can’t do any real work. I did notice harbor freight has English Wheels on sale....
