IMSA car are excessive, but I don't know if the style works as well on a Z-car as it does on old american muscle. The extended hood and huge rear flared quarters just don't work for me.

LOL, Dude... From the A pillar back that thing SCREAMS Porsche. From the 911, to the 944 to the 928. It could fit in a group of track ready Porsches without being noticed... At all. Notice the lines of the 928 and 944...









I'll get off my box, but you see what I mean. I've always thought that the Z, the RX7 revolved around the same design and style premise of the 944 and 928.

The page actually speaks of the fascination with the IMSA 935s. Yes Porsche- but everybody was doing the same thing- install largest wheel/tire, then make BIG fender:




saw these run at daytona 24

I'm a huge fan of the early z-cars (Pre-79). These examples make baby jesus cry :(
