Default Autokonuxionamex...aah f. it you know who I'm talking about

Posted some new pictures of a shop car at SEMA, I can't decide whether I hate it or not, but I have to admit this car made the fastback crap look half-way decent.

Not my cup of tea, but I wonder if there is any go with all that show?

I do like the NB coupe.

The front bumper are apparently part of his new widebody kit which includes the skirts, fenders, front bumper, etc...

As for the "go" he said he "ran out of time for the turbo install" so at least he's thought about positive pressure

I think that is the first time 15" wheels have looked too small on an NA.

At least I assume they're 15s.

Looks like a 944 and a 350z had a baby. Reminds me of a Liger, which is pretty much the best animal ever.

The shape of the top looks hideous and out of place. The factory hardtop had the correct shape and looked like it belonged. This, not so much. Just looks like part of a ricers ill fitting body kit, all it needed was to be done in grey primer to complete the look.

According to him....they're al the same, it's just that all the people that bought them don't know what they're doig or how to fit the top... either he's full of **** or has a really stupid clientele, or both...

i like it, somewhat

the huge tire height and the extended rear fenders definitely give it a 944 look

The rear quarter windows need to be bigger (not possible with the seam) or eliminated altogether. It looks a lot like a 1st gen RX7 with a body kit.
