VW Beetle / Porsche Boxster

BoxsterBug

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since the last chassis swap build was featured, especially considering it’s one of the most popular and impressive forms of construction. This latest one takes a couple of specimens from the Porsche/VW bloodline and meshes them together, creating a Boxster S chassis and driveline hidden beneath an aircooled Beetle body.

    VERY classic build. Last one I saw of that was approx. 15 years ago .. but they are SO fitting ;)

    (cause the VW Beetle / Käfer and Porsche is designed by the very same person)

    cu, w0lf.

    I love beetles.

    I like how every single part of this car seems different from the original beetle, while still having the same shape.

    For instance, the rear fenders are wider. The trunk seems shorter.
    The hood is taller.

    The front seems to be too high though.

    It looks like it has a good paint job.

    And the wheels complement the whole. Look at how they fit inside the fenders.

    That’s really pretty sweet.

    From a guy who has owned 3 Boxsters and 7 Porsches, I LOVE this! I’ve always wanted to do this with a Karmann Ghia body!

    I love the Volkswagen Beetle, for me is the best car!. I do not like the “new beetle” … The old car looks very robust, and quite apart from the aesthetic brings me many memories of childhood …I love … :)

    just seen the thread, absolutely love this project, so much so, that i wanna have a go!
    will it be possible to strip the boxster and use the (strengthen)chassis of the beetle for the re-build?

    cheers any advice welcome.

    thank you.

    Siegfried,
    Being a kafer lover, speedster & multi kafer owner, my thoughts of a porsche/vw ideas were eclipsed by this meld of two loved cars.
    Absolutely wonderful job, well done!
