One-Off (?) Porsche 928 Spyder

Apparently, someone made a race car out of a 928 and someone else tried to make a production car based on its general design.  That's where spyderwerks comes in, but it's not clear how many of these might have actually been built nor exactly when this came to be.


The end result of whatever happened is a very nice and interesting-looking roadster with the excellent 928 engine. In this case, it is unfortunately linked to an automatic transaxle.  Is that worth $25K to you, knowing that buys a lot of stock 928?

Supposedly, work on this design started in 1993, but it's not clear when this design was finalized. We see LOTS of Boxster influence in the rear half of this car and perhaps a tiny bit of Z8.


Again, the Boxster comes to mind - odd considering the different engine location.  Wait, it that a CamryS350 in the background?  I'm not sure this should live near something so boring!


Front is basically a more streamlined 928 look.


Rear view again shows a lot of Boxster.


Interior is basically just custom and relatively plain.  At least it doesn't have center gauges!


Gauges might have come from Summit Racing, not that there's anything wrong with that.


Here's an odd shot of the 32-Valve Porsche V8.

This all began in 1993 with the work of the Quebec-based, Wingho Auto Classics Inc., with a 928 spyder racing car. (You can go to their website winghoauto and you can see the original prototype, which is also for sale for at least $100,000.00).  The founder of Spyderwerks, Jeffrey Pink, in Minnesota saw this race car and was inspired to do the necessary work to make a street legal version.  Seven years later, six prototypes and a million dollars of development, the car you see here was ready to go.  Spyderwerks has taken one of the greatest engineered and powerful German engineered GT cars and turned it into a beautiful cabriolet.  The end result, is an affordable, striking and high performance open roadster like no other, in the world.
