Poor man's 787B

Oh boy, I got another 986.

I sold my RX7 and now I wanna have another rotary car. So why not 986 rotary car??? AND why not peripheral port rotary 986 car? AND WHY not quazi tube chassis peripheral port rotary 986 car?!!

Here I go. Doing things I shouldn't do. LOL




































Oh and I wanna skin it with 914 panels... This is going to be one of the cars on the road. LOL

Thats a super nice build, but it doesn't have any headlights. I'm going more for a raggedy mad maxish kinda thing. I don't know whether or not I'm painting the 914 panels. and they will be bolted to the tubes not like permanently affixed.


The more I look at it; I don't think I'm gonna chop too much off the front. I mean its all pretty relevant up there, not much to hack off. I am going with a center radiator and stuff, but for the most part that body stuff aint gonna change.



It wants the 914 parts

Glad you are back!
Rotary sounds cool, not literally, ha! Not too sure about the 914 panels

Thanks, I never quite left... just kinda lurked for a while. LOL




So K.E.P. makes adaptors for Porsche transaxles. I used a K.E.P. adaptor in my silver boxster. Great product, no issues with it. BUT they don't want to make an adaptor for this project of mine.

I'm left with a few options.

1. use a 914 transmission with an adaptor plate.
-4 speed trans = no good for peaky rotary power band
-cable clutch
-weird custom cv axles
2. use a 930 or G50 transmission.
-I don't want to spend 5 times on the transmission than the rest of the entire build.
3. Make my own adaptor
-I don't think I need to say why this is a bad idea
4. BEG AND PLEAD on my hands and knees for K.E.P. to make a one off adaptor for me.


Honestly I think I'm gonna go with option 4 tomorrow. If that fails I'm gonna hunt down a VW bug adaptor and take it to a machinist friend of mine. He might be able to make something work. Worst case scenario I go with option 1.

Rotary or just a tube chassis?

This thing I'm doing is coming along nicely. I'm holding off on setting the suspension height till I finish cutting the body off, but I'm chomping at the bit and ready to weld.

Tubes....









Pulled the H6 out last weekend, I forgot how heavy M96 engines are. Took some life out of me dragging it around to get the car out of the bay so I could use the chainfall to hoist the engine in the back of my truck.



If anybody wants a part I'm throwing away just let me know. Its all going to the dump (aka its free fifty) except for a couple of things I'm keeping for myself.

So, I am pecking away at this. The front framing is proving to be a challenge. Just finding places to weld to is kinda difficult.

The rear is almost done. I want to set the ride hieght before I add in the last of the upright supports. I went too low (or at least I think I did); I'll know for sure when I get the front done and I can put some simulated weight in it.

I did get my PP. Look at my PP. Its a nice PP, but it needs some scrubbing.... PP hehe.

Ok no more Peripheral Port jokes. LOL

I can't find anyone to make an adaptor plate, so I gave it a go.

The 986 flywheel has a piolet bearing inside it, so all I need is a machine shop to make a hubcentric adapter from the 13B to the 986 flywheel. Thrust and centering will be changed when I have that piece machined out, but for now this plate is "eyeballed" close enough so I can make motor mounts and an exhaust/intake/coolant pipe routing.

Here are some shrunken pics of the insanity....

And I finished adjusting the rear ride height and welded in the last of the rear... I did the front too, but it looks all the same.

I saw this and thought of your build: English Translation- https://www-auto--motor--und--sport-de.translate.goog/tuning/porsche-914-umbau-boxster-986-rendering-design-entwurf/?_x_tr_sl=auto&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en-US&_x_tr_pto=wapp&_x_tr_hist=true
Original German: https://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/tuning/porsche-914-umbau-boxster-986-rendering-design-entwurf/

914 design elements on a 986 chassis. Sadly not rotary, but maybe electric.
