the best looking 1988 911 you will ever see.

The owners of early 70s 911s who try to make their cars look ‘modern’ should be imprisoned.  This guy, on the other hand has done the glorious thing and ‘backdated’ his 1988 911 into a 1971 Porsche 911 with upgraded parts and spec’d out.

The result is something which is quite simply…..wonderful.

    I am in love with this thing. Just a shame that the US spec slightly ruins the effort 🙂

    i actually have yet to see an example of this…

  3. i don’t know how i feel about this. on the one hand, do i love it? of course— i’d be stupid not to. and if no one had pointed out that it was backdated, i wouldn’t have given it a second thought. on the other hand, i can’t help but get the feeling that i am gazing at something of an imposter, and i don’t know if i love that feeling.

    It is an impostor, but a damn sexy one. WOW.

    I actually find the 1988 models to be the zenith year of the 911’s. First of all, it has the timeless 911 styling before they modernized it with the 964. Secondly, you have the 3.2 engine mated to the G50 transmission. This one’s nice, don’t get me wrong, but I’ll take an ’88 stocker every time.

      I do have to admit I am growing more and more fond of that generation of 911…so I definitely see your point!
