    I am not form the Porsche world, so I cant comment on how many 911 owners like to modify their cars. But from what I see from most Ferrari owners, is that aftermarket mods are just not that popular. But to each their own after all, anyone can do whatever they wish with their car.

    I guarantee you that the average 911 owner will not be rushing to singers doors, although they might want to.
    I cant think of another car company that can add half a million dollars plus to an old car just by re imaging it.

    I have been thinking about building a sleeper with both electric and gas, have you seen this electric hub wheel motors? They fit on over 1,000 different wheels

    Also Yamaha has something similar in R&D right now ready to come out soon

    Lol, I bet you went straight to google :D
    Never seen the Volvo before, looks great.
    I have seen the eagle quite a few times, at places like Goodwood, also a few singers. I do know that the eagle does not come close to the quality of the singer Porsches.

    A closed carbon fiber "pan" was made and installed below the intercooler, with its lower surface covered with gold heat reflecting film, separating the hot side. The side intakes on the doors, that originally supplied cold air to the engine, are now directed to this carbon fiber pan, cooling the intercooler.

    There is this company that makes a hybrid conversion for 911. Aircooled or water cooled. It is an electric motor assist between the engine and gearbox. They are already doing installs, completely reversible. Adds 150hp with short range-EV drive. Straight sleeper on a 964 or 993.

    really cool idea for sure. You lose the frunk space though. The battery goes there. $75,000 installed

    I agree. If it was meant to have one, it would be sold as an option. Too delicate to eff it up with hopeful mods.

    I also don't see the point. Take a leaf from 360Trev's project...add lightness and focus on making the car drivable.

    10.9 1/4 isn't even that fast these days.

    A lot of these "builds" are just for youtube views.

    In saying so though, that twin turbo Spider build was around 20 years ago, fast for back then and not for flexing online! At least that car went to put down a time. Twin turbo modenas were also rolling around but never seen them hit the track, it's more just to show off really.

    For the type of people who want power, performance these days is so much easier with E85 and turbocharging of everything or just going EV. The F355 is now at an age where the owners are buying it for the experience not for what it can do.

    Another video, this time they ran a very interesting experiment. They mapped the car with the wastegates open, so no boost, to check how much HPs they could extract with the additional sensors and features of the Fueltech. 318 HP at the wheels, even though the turbo and the intercooler act as a bottleneck for the normally aspirated phase. Not bad. Looking forward how much it will produce with boost!

    Nice clean install, but at least they didn't modify a berlinetta

    The car was sitting for 10 years and they bought it for 30k USD.

    Seems like this would be even easier on a 355 given there's no need to keep it as thin to maintain driveline alignment. Could replace the whole pumpkin. Plenty of room in the frunk for a battery pack. $75k is a bit steep, though. I think I'd do a toda build instead.

    The turbos are interesting, but I feel misplaced on a 355. Would make more sense on a 348 where the engine isn't wound so tight to begin with.
