its a porsche boxster. you can find info on the actual car [link=http://987-2pvra-ils.com:8080/]HERE[/link]. the only thing that throws me off is the side panel for cooling brakes, the newer porsches have slotted vents whereas the one you showing has a open one. tho thats prolly just out of convenience. That shell also looks like it would have had a body kit on it.

eh maby your right, 911 with a body kit on it. easy to tell it has a kit on it simply by the the way the front bumper sticks out on the bottom. Very possible that it was based off a RUF car which use porsche and mod them.

im crying on the inside lol. Tooners are usually a big thing with younger kids (tho im only 21) but i would much rather spend the same amount of money you sink into a ricer and buy an old charger and fix it up. im all about raw power thats why the 69 charger and the new dodge vipers are my fav.
