Here's a nice project conducted by a french Porsche & vintage vw's enthusiast (I wish I could have time & money to do that Rolling Eyes Embarassed Laughing )

He's creating a modern vintage Porsche from is own design based on 550 lines with a carbon monocell construction. Though you'd be interested to follow this nice build

Here are some sketches

What an amazing project! I know all threads about Porsche replicas are supposed to go in the Kit Car forum but there is absolutely nothing kit car about it. I'm sure you would have gotten much more response/appreciation if this had been posted in the 356 forum. Hopefully the word will filter back.
