Ask... it won't be but the reaction from the owner can be fun. I had a guy with a 365gtb/4 replica go to great detail about the genuine parts on his car. Windows frames and glass, etc. Yawn.
Ew. Was it based on a 260Z? From memory that's what they used. Still marginally cooler than mutilating a perfectly good MR2 into a F355 or Testarossa.

At least the fake RSRs are actually based on 911s.

Soooo turns out taking the baffle out of the exhaust was a genius move!!!
Went for a run today and on the dam road where the gears are low and the revs are high it has a wonderous burble and cackle when rolling off the throttle. Found my self downshifting at all the intersections on todays ride just to hear the exhaust.

Hardly a Ninji move though...

Holy shit, that's sexy as. What motor?
Cheers! Its a 2L B series, bottom end originally from a CRV and head from an Integra Type R.


Great photos.

Mate in Adelaide has an EK VTEC 1.6 track car that he's poured a lot of time, love and defection notices into.
Yep sounds like a familiar story. Funny enough i was actually pulled over on a test drive the other day, the car was in 'race' mode so wing and everything. Because the car is all engineered i showed him the paperwork and he was happy and let me go. He was actually a legend. I feel like police are a lot more leanient these days as the cars get older and less common.

Yes! For me, nothing beats that B-series engine note. I'm sure the bonus torque of the 2 litre's extra capacity would be fun too. Very cool.

Yea! I built it about 10 years ago now. 12:1 setup with toda cams its a lot of fun. A K series setup is much more cost effective these days but I love how raw the old B is.

Nah, he already had a crowd and I didn't want to be another dickhead ogling some rich person's play thing. The guy might have been really sound and a true car enthusiast but I've known enough trophy owning dickheads to think otherwise.

The Targa Rally was on last week so maybe he was up here for that.

That might be a little bit of a stretch, air cooled porsche guys are usually pretty cool and have usually been into it for a while. I wouldn't call that a trophy car, that's an enthusiast's car. Regardless, awesome to see it out and about.
I think it's a Porsche 911 with an Aliexpress body kit. There's only one RSR in Australia and that's not it.

There's a company in Buderim selling racing cars, two of which are RS and RSR replicas.
