There is something odd (and perhaps exceptionally ugly) about a car that has been widened to such an extreme that still sits high off the ground.

As it's basically a 74 RSR which from factory came with 15" wheels but was raced by quite a few teams with 16", the 18" might be a bit of a stretch.

Although if you look at the track porsches from that era most of them have a front bumper that is much lower compared to the side of the car.

Yeah, but this one just doesn't pull it off as well. It's basically just an RWB kit without the ground effects that they use to make the cars look lower.

Now if we're talking 74 IROCs, I'm all about it

It was the guy RWB just going to the extreme for no other reason than because.

Love those new wheels, reminds me of trivial pursuit pieces. . .
Is that a square setup?

This.

The design works on the older cars better because they are smaller and lower offset.

IMO Fuchs derivatives don't look right on the post g-series 911s.
