By   May 30, 2017

986 Porsche Boxster R

Project Porsche Boxster R

The 986 Porsche Boxster is perhaps the best value in the used Porsche Market. The affordable mid-engined sports car can be had for as little as $5,000 for and example in good running condition. Because of the low cost of entry and the relatively large amount of early Boxsters produced makes them a perfect candidate as a project car.

With that knowledge we are introducing our 986 generation Porsche Boxster R project. The concepr for the project will follow the example of the new 911 R and Cayman GT4 / Boxster Spyder. The idea is to build something that could have come from the factory had a hard core road version of the Boxster been produced in the early Boxster years.

Modified Porsche Carrera GT

The Porsche Carrera GT is one of the last great analog supercars. It is a near perfect machine in stock form and yet a few owners thought that it could be just a bit better.

This video captures one such Carrera GT. It is a modified car which has its V10 engine outputting 770 horsepower. A stage 3 package by EDO Competition is on the car which includes a large rear wing, upgraded suspension, brake upgrades, engine upgrades and a six-point harness.

The footage features the car as it flys-by on the track. You can tell that it is very fast, but the sound of the straight-through exhaust is just insane.
