    Sexy on the outside, but good lord that interior looks like crap! (clean, just butt ugly)

    Most sports cars from 1985 were uglier on the inside. That was probably the best it got. :)

    I'd take the 308 over the Rossa any day but it'd have to be the 308GTSi so I can live out my Magnum PI fantasies. :)

    996 3.4 swap?
    Audi 2.7TT swap?
    LS1 swap? :D

    This looks like a solid deal for a 912 like mine in good shape:

    i think the rotary swap is semi-popular. I have seen a number of them. there is one for sale around here every few months, i guess the guy cant get rid of it. that is one of my dream-frankenstein cars

    It's a good combo. If the rotary is bridge ported it will make power to like 9000 Rpm and the motor is light and reliable.

    Didn't know that. Most of the VW stuff I"m looking at right now is all off road, and people are usually swapping in Subaru or Ford engines... I bet that thing is fun though!

    That's tight, but not worth 9 grand. I'd like to take a Honda S600 and put a CBR1000RR motor in it. :D

    I think this may be the ultimate zombie apocalypse vehicle:

    This thing has been for sale a few months now...

    I called the guy. My problem with that Boxster was another 1998, silver with red interior and 200,000 miles was posted a week or two ago (scroll up). It seems someone bought it and posted it up for $1500 more. The first guy said it was smoking ($$$) and the second guy says it doesn't crank over. If it's a different car I'd be shocked at the coincidence, but the whole thing is sketchy IMO.

    Just to give you an idea of what a real 914-6 is worth:
    1970 Porsche 914-6 GT

    $350,000!

    The only major difference was his car did not come with that motor or fender flares: he added them later. Amazing.
