Like I was saying before, many would perceive this list as a pipe dream. For the owner and the shop, this is simply business as usual when it comes to building a proper 911 hot rod. The owner, if you couldn't tell by now, likes to remain anonymous. He, however, isn't a stranger to the pages of ec. His last project was a bonkers widebody, race-tuned 3.8L Porsche Boxster Spyder.

When the owner, we'll call him Jim, decides to take things to another level, he does so with gumption. "I saw what Singer was doing and decided that rather than wait for one, I'd build one of the same caliber while keeping with a sleeper look, not to mention sticking to a more acceptable budget." We love the results, and aren't so sure if we would still call this car a sleeper.
He knew off the bat the car would have to remain a narrow body, hide 9.5" front and 11" rear tires, while making the roided-out engine appear stock. Not to mention interior fit and finish would have to rival that of RUF or Porsche Exclusive finishing.
