Gullwing America P/904 Carrera 02.03.2012

Our main man Arturo from specialty coachworks firm Gullwing-America has sent us fresh images and details of his latest retro project car, the P/904 Carrera. A throwback to the Porsche Carrera 904 GTS from the mid 1960s, the P/904 resembles a modern day re-interpretation of the mid-engine Porsche race car.

The first prototype will utilize the platform from a 987 Porsche Boxster (2005 - 2011) and will provide all the necessary modern amenities and controls such as the instrument panel, air conditioning, LED lights, iPod docking station, navigation system, steering wheel and seats but with the retro look of the original.

The prototype will also retain the 6-speed manual transmission and 3.4-liter boxer engine with 295HP (217kW / 291bhp) as well as power steering and ABS among other modern basics. A sport tuned exhaust will give it that racecar sound and the adjustable suspension will provide the dynamic handling and ride height.

The exterior body of the P/904 will be constructed of composite material and will be complemented by GWA's custom-designed 5 spoke wheels in 18x8 size at the front and 18x10 in the rear.

The estimated cost of the conversion is approximately 70,000 euros. This does not include any additional customization or the donor Boxster, which can be purchased in RHD if required.

No, of course not. You managed to read through most of the article. How hard would it have been to read the final sentence?
