This homemade Porsche 911 GT3 RS is really just a Boxster underneath

Did it fool you?

Home built car projects don't always go to plan, in fact they are often a complete fail a waste of time, and a waste of resources. However, this homemade Porsche 911 GT3 RS might just be the most impressive project we have seen in a long while.

The car you can see here started life as a Porsche 987 Boxster and has since undergone the biggest change of its life. If it were a human, it would be like having surgery to look like you older, more handsome, sportier cousin.

This project was posted to the Modified Porsches Facebook group by a man called Paul Lucas who has been working away for quite some time. As you can see, he has essentially made a 991 GT3 RS body and placed it on top of a manual second-gen Boxster platform and it works a treat.

Sure it doesn't have anywhere near as much power as the real thing as it still retains the Boxster's original 2.7L flat-six which puts out 236hp, but we bet it is still great fun to drive. But, there are some subtle 911 features in he cabin which includes the car's 997-gen 911 dashboard which Paul fitted because he likes the look of it.

This is truly magnificent effort at a build, and from most angles you can't even tell it isn't the real deal. So Paul, if you happen to be reading this, please get in touch so I can take a closer look at this masterpiece and make some content with it.

  • Idlove to see him get an old speedster shell on a Boxster and have as authentic. No one has yet mastered it. This looks great

  • Looks really good but then so does a scale model. Better to just buy a real one as I’m not sure anyone would ever buy this one. That makes it a whole load of effort and time to pretend!!!
