Bisimoto Porsche Boxster

Bisimoto has transformed a 2000 Porsche Boxster into a pure race car. They took the well balanced chassis and striped it of as much weight as possible. The 986 has a fully stripped interior with a full cage and a hard top.

Before you think this is just a Boxster Spec race car, Bisimoto didn’t stop there. To make sure there is perfect balance the driver sits right in the middle and the pedals adjust to the driver’s size. This ensures that the corner balance is perfect. There is extensive use of carbon fiber, including the hard top modeled after a Porsche Cayman (which causes some confusion).

I was recently approached by a coworker asking if I knew if a taller person can drive a Porsche 356 comfortably. He is about 6’4” tall and enjoys motorcycles and wants to get into sports cars. He is hoping to purchase a classic 356 coupe.

He mentioned that he wasn’t sure if such a small car would fit him. He knows that I’ve had the chance to drive all of Porsche’s modern sports car lineup and that my daily driver is an early Porsche Boxster. His opinion of the Boxster is that he definitely couldn’t fit into it, but this is all based on the outside appearance and not sitting inside.

Porsche is currently taking the 919 Hybrid on a world tour after retiring from its third straight 24 Hours of Le Mans overall victory. The Porsche 919 Hybrid EVO is extremely fast. Just how fast is it? The prototype has managed a quicker time than a Formula 1 car around Spa.
