STÅRKE MAKES YAHOO FRONT PAGE

Banzai....I hope your really going to the SEMA Show and get to check this car out. AND PLEASE DO,  report back with your usual FAIR, BALANCED, OBJECTIVE, AND THOUGHTFUL opinion of what you discovered. I had planned on going but I have to head down to Mexico for some business issues and gave my pass away to a friend. I, for sure,  am looking forward to your evaluation and anyone else on this site who gets to attend.......Bruce

Sorry guys...NOT GOING. Have family visiting from Mainland but will watch the FACEBOOK celebration.

I think there's some confusion about what Starke is attempting.

I don't think they're re-engineering the Boxster, but just wrapping some new sheet metal around it and retaining as much of it as possible.

I put together this composite of their drawing over a real Boxster and tried to get the scale as close as possible. One thing that jumps out is that they're using the Boxster door (and door handle). When you line the two doors up, the wheelbase is a match, too. And it also looks like they're keeping the windshield and Boxster seats (and probably as much of the interior as possible, too.

If there's 'shortening', it's at the very ends, where there aren't many mechanicals.
