The Porsche Boxster Shooting Brake project moves closer to completion
Netherlands-based Van Thull Development has posted another bunch of shots showcasing their latest and greatest project, the Porsche Boxster Shooting Brake conversion.
The Gen. 986 German roadster provides the basis here, but the car also uses numerous parts takes from the 911 series. In particular, the front end is a Porsche GT3 911.997, the side windows stem from the 996, and the brake lights originate from the 991.
The car boasts a light-blue paintjob and sports carbon-fiber extensions that make its roof longer.
As good as it may seem from the outside, the Shooting Brake is far from complete. Next thing, Van Thull Development plans to tackle the interior and then the trunk area. The latter will also be challenging, because the car sports a mid-engine layout, which necessitates a compromise between trunk size and engine insulation.
