    Re: 904 for 70K

    Gullwing America P/904 Carrera envisions 1960s modern day classic...

    (2 March 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.

    The 904 was one of the most beautiful racing cars of it's day. I still love it's lines.


    Re: 904 for 70K

    It's one of the two Porsche cars  that F.A. Porsche designed. The other one being the original 901/911

    I'm not a fan of such replicas, sorry. No matter how beautiful they may look.

    Re: 904 for 70K

    The dimensions seem just a little off. I'm sure it's very fine but it has the appearance of a not well designed kit car to me. Compare it to the real thing.

    Isn't the "Carrera"  name and the font , registered trademarks of Porsche? How can the coach-building firm use those?

    Porsche's legal department just hasn't been in touch with them yet.  Smiley

    They do say that it's a modern day re-interpretation...  its not a bad job, I just wouldn't personally bother...

    I love the 904 but not if its a replica, it feels more like an "imitation" to me.

    I agree, it's hard to improve on the design of the 904


    Re: 904 for 70K

    Looks goofy. Rear wing, LED headlight trim, wrong angles on Kamm tail all scream....... crap!


    Re: 904 for 70K

    I've seen some tastefully done replicas, but this isyaaak.gif


    Re: 904 for 70K

    To be fair it's not a replica. It's a modern day re-interpretation.
