Default One less 993 Turbo.....

I was at a shop today and saw a 993 Turbo that is going to be made into a RWB. I'll post pics after its done.....if you can stomach it.

why not just sacrifice a regular 993? I mean save your $ since it's all custom anyway

Nothing like a RWB, if done right. I mean you want it wide but not friggen "Kardashian's rear end" wide BTW, what shop is it done at?

Don't worry, in 10-20 years someone will restore it back to stock just like all the long hoods that were made to look like impact bumper cars in the 70s and 80s.

When is this rwb fad going to end?

IF I ever feel like chopping the rear fenders on my 993tt it will be to turn it to a gt2 replica.
A car that I always loved but are to expensive now.

Wow can't believe that was the trend back then.

Agree it's def a waste of a TT but at least this RWB will have some HP behind it and potential for more.

hopefully it was a high mile molested car...

Altough a turbo is the best RWB to build. "Show" matches the "Go"

Yah they are pretty stupid and definitely, well, "ricer" - but its more stupid to see RWB's with STOCK NA engines - frick the standard engine can hardly turn over those wide wheels. As Knight said, at least it has some grunt.

Cheers

this one was built at the same shop last year. It's for sale now. There's a thread about the car somewhere on Pelican.
it has a turbo engine built by ff tech originally with 650hp, now lowered to 550hp.
