Turbocharged Porsche 964 Speedster

Look what’s up for sale on eBay USA. It’s a genuine Porsche 964 Speedster that’s been fitted with a twin-turbo 993 engine that’s said to produce 600bhp.

I’m not sure if I like it or not. Part of me is uncomfortable with the idea of a rare Speedster like this being bastardised. On the other hand, I do admire modified Porsches and this one certainly looks mean, with its Strosek hardtop and Ruf wheels.

It’s obviously a serious conversion; not only does it have the 993 Turbo engine, it also has that car’s six-speed gearbox and four-wheel drive. Impressive stuff.

Inside, I don’t like that rectangular steering wheel nor the screen in the centre console. but they could easily be changed.

Asking price is $175,000 – that’s just over £100,000. Is it worth that? It’s worth exactly what someone is prepared to pay for it. If there’s someone out there looking for a 600bhp 911 Speedster, then it’ll sell.
