My idea for a vw rebody

Post by swoodard23 » Mon Jul 07, 2003 8:57 am

I'm looking for some input on what ya'll think about my bug rebody. It would fit a totally stock vw beelte pan and even accomodate engine conversions.

And here is my idea for a midengined spyder replica

They do make 911 replicas to fit ontop of VW chassis, pretty well built cars too. But if I were to modify a metal bodied 911/912, I'd prefer the Porsche chassis anytime over VW's. So it'll just end up a customized Porsche, not a rebodied VW (if it was up to me).

I know I'm getting a little picture happy, but I just designed two more concepts. Look how great 17" wheels look!Image

Sorry, I know they are a little dicey but you get the idea.

The bodies would be made of fiberglass, not porsche sheetmetal, and use a minimum of porsche parts.

Photoshoping is easy. Making a car is another story.
