As a Boxster builder I almost got offended there for a second! Mike is a great guy and very knowledgable and he made several of these kits completed. I can't seem to find the pics but some if them are around here on the clone. The biggest hurdle with a Boxster is the dash and door area need to be cut down and built/ braced back. All the Boxster builds that I've seen didn't do this. His body was built around those areas and that's where the oddness starts. Bigpines put it well, almost exactly what my reasoning was for going that route, but I searched until I found my car for right at 5k. Not sure I would try to re-do that body. Too much time and money to get that to be able to compete with a G28. Just my thoughts.  ::beers

That makes sense why they use the boxter, i guess if they were cheaper more builders would use them? Tallon your pic looks very nice of the murci, does it look not too accurate? I cant tell it looks kinda like a G24?

From the pic given it seems the front bumber is more angular than actual, plus the mirrors are sticking up at 10 and 2 o clock (which annoys me). Other than that it looks good. I'm sure there are other differences, but i'm just telling you what i see from this pic.

The g24 was made to look like the original murcie but vetter's was supposed to be an lp640 with the updated bumpers and rockers. To my knowledge I don't think Mike based his off another kit (could be wrong.) Sorry I can't pick a main difference, to me it's the whole thing I'd hate to say. I think the TriangleG G28 was a new and improved body to replace these kits. So basically what you're trying to do has already been done, that's why Rob and others sell g28's and not older kits.

The Boxster is probably the best donor if you want something that is already mid-engine and you just want to do a stretch. They have exceptional handling, stiff chassis as they are convertibles and stock engines up to ~300 HP. It is far superior in every way to a Fiero or even an MR2 except for the cost factor.
If I don't have time to do it right, when will I have time to do it over?

Yes your right they are a bit off, he even hinted to that himself. He uses Porsche boxters as the donor  ::scratch. As far as i know he stopped producing them and i put a  deposit on his lambo molds. he isnt into lambos much anymore. Not sure why. I do know theres a huge market for the bughattis right now. He has lots of famous people ordering from him. what can you see is the most obvious difference with his lambo bodies? im buying the molds from him would be nice to make the right corrections.

Perhaps.. I know his murcielago's used to be far off from the real thing, I'm curious to know if he made an updated model

Is it just me or do the bughatti veyrons look like the nissan 350z??  ::scratch. Still very impressive in person. He uses a newer GTO chassis to make them. The grey one you see belongs to an NBA player who just sent it in to get headlamps replaced. The enzo he used an actual ferrari 430 chassis and motor, very cool. I actually couldnt tell the difference from the replica enzo or the real one.

 Just wanted to show everyone pics of one of very few  real "master builders". These pics are from my  road trip to see mike vetter in florida. Mike Vetter specializes in bughatti veyrons and ferrari enzos but he will build you a lambo if you like. The red/blk veyron is bad azz, it sells for $80k, the enzo sold for $250k. If anyone is looking for a builder hes wayyy different from Robslp640. Lets just say the dude can build.. He is so honest that he has been holding a bughatti veyron for a guy that paid a deposit 5 years ago then disappeared and he wont sell it to anyone until he has heard back from the guy and its been 5 years! wow.  The girls in the pic are locals i met them just walking down the beach, they are so friendly there. After this i started carrying my son with me everwhere. just In case you couldnt tell, im the guy who looks like tom cruise  :LL:
