Well....its been the work of a winter and a donor 944 that was not long for this world...but here she is:

Major work -

New engine - Euro pistons
225/45 15 tires (plus a wider offset from the 944 wheels)
GT ish look with the new bumper / front fenders and rear flares
new driving lights
a few new bits and bobs inside

Just did a track day Charlotte Motor speedway (Nascar road course layout this time) and she did pretty darn good! I still think she would get a bit more down low grunt if I had the euro dizzy to go along with the euro pistons (thus the post in the want to buy forum).

Huge thanks to Casey Purifoy for helping getting her to this state






Godzilla even showed up:

Cool, is it for racing or just for fun? 225s on 7'' cookies sounds alot, how is that sidewall coping? Hope you will have alot of fun with the car!

225's on 7" cookies isn't a lot.

225's on 6" spiderwebs is.

She be for racing

She was an scca itb car that I won a few events with, but wanted to do more endurance racing with her 7-24 hours types. There is more lee-way in the endurance series, so I modded her a bit.

225's are a perfect size. I still need to trim some of the wheel well as there was the tiniest of rubbing. The late 944 trailing arms pushed the backs out just perfectly.

Cheers!
