GWA brought back the classic Porsche Carrera 904 GTS into the modern-day

There's some kind of pleasure feeling burst inside when we're surfing in cyberspace and finding something that can provide inspiration. This happened this time, where our amazement eyes shone when we saw the pictures on one of the Pinterest pages that featured the modern version of the classic 1960s car named the Porsche P/904 Carrera which was rebuilt by Gullwing America.

Then we directly remembered, some time ago we ever had presented several articles about the work of Gullwing America, known as an American coachbuilder based in San Antonio, Texas. One of its best works is when in 2011 the company succeeded bringing back the figure of the Ferrari 340 Mexican Berlinetta into modern-day under the new form that completely could be seen in the supercar bear a new name as the Ferrari F-340 Competizione.

Like other cars that have been brought back to life by this American coachbuilder, so the figure of the Porsche P/904 Carrera is inspired by the Porsche Carrera 904 GTS, which first appeared in the mid-1960s and is mentioned as a modern reinterpretation of the Porsche mid-engine racing car.

As quoted of Motor1, the first prototype will utilize the platform from a Porsche 987 Boxster and will provide all the necessary modern amenities and controls such as the instrument panel, air conditioning, LED lights, iPod docking station, a navigation system, steering wheel, and seats but with the retro look of the original.

The prototype will also retain the 6-speed manual transmission and 3.4-liter boxer engine with 295 horsepower as well as power steering and ABS among other modern basics. A sport-tuned exhaust will give it that racecar sound and the adjustable suspension will provide the dynamic handling and ride height.
The exterior body of the P/904 will be constructed of composite materials and will be complemented by GWA's custom-designed 5 spoke wheels in 18x8 size at the front and 18x10 in the rear. And the estimated cost of the conversion is approximately €70,000 or approx Rp. 1.05 billion. This does not include any additional customization or the donor Boxster, which can be purchased in RHD if required. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOR1]
