    it's been done. though I wouldn't do it due to just the dumpsters full of money you would need to pull it off vs the bargain basement nature of just about every 924.



    There was a 1970's porsche 912 shell here in ohio for $1500 that I half thought about buying and making a rally race car out of using a beetle engine, but then reality set in. If you are going to do a Rally 911 I feel like it needs to be aircooled and then you drive it to mexico and run it in the NORRA 1000:

    you didn't even open the CL ad did you? It has the factory hardtop. Your SO will love top down summer days and you can put the hardtop on the rest of the time. But whatever, for someone who likes motorcycles I don't understand why you hate convertibles.

    That CTS-V has been on cars.com for months. It's a crack pipe price. Plus no point in having a wagon over a sedan unless you have kids or a family. Just get an 09 sedan, pay $20K for it, and be happy.

    Why ick on the 914? I learned to drive stick shift on one. Fun little cars if a bit rough around the edges. The 916 with the 911 6 cylinder was even more fun.

    the 916 is a rare car. As such they have started to appreciate.

    the 914 is a go kart. that's about it's only endearing feature. But if you want to talk about a hated porsche it is probably the most hated one. It's useless as a daily in any place that isn't the south, and even as a toy it is a hard car to really enjoy because it is so rough. It will always feel too small and too underpowered.

    yeah but it is an easy enough one to build out of a 914 and a wrecked 911. However, You'll still be driving a 914 at the end of the day and wouldn't you rather have an Subaru STI engine at half the cost?
