Easier to just sell it and buy a wide body. That's what I did.

993 targa is a rare and cool car, not sure I would use it as a base for a build.

I love the targa's and definitely wouldn't mind one with a turbo tail.

To me, a Turbo tail without the Turbo is like a small chested gal who stuffs a bra with toilet paper. Expectations fall short of reality

The front end is easy as the front PUs are interchangeable. The inner liner can either be used or a Turbo one sourced and used instead.
