In the meantime I am finishing another 2 WRC delta, I started thinking about my next project.

I write a premise: my good friend model maker Riccardo tried to take me on the "right" way of the hystoric racing.
The idea would have been a LeMans (the 4H race in the 24) # 62 driven by Lennep with an NA engine and Martini livery ..... not to be confused with the Turbo # 46 always used by Lennep, always at LeMans, always Martini but at 24H race.
Beautiful cars, but that don't make “fall in love” like an mp4/4 or a Delta. If I continue to model my historical subjects it will be the F1, the WRC and some LeMans .... the rest I like custom or tuning like my Golf GTI

My inspiration starts from a Porsche seen live at Woerthersee 2013 .... an awesome USA 964: it is practically original, just very low (airride) and a rotiform rims.
The idea of my Porsche is based on this: a car with original shapes (practically a sleeper .... if a sleeper can be defined as a Porsche) "slammed" on the ground, 4 rims but with a turbo engine and therefore probably with the rear open bumper and with turbo clearly visible just like on the Lennep RSR in 24H Lemans

Now I’m studying the various engines between the various 935 of 76 and 79; there will be a lot to work and it will not be easy ... I don't even know if I will be able.

I have the first 21 double issues with the possibility of understanding how difficult it will be to move the cooling fan horizontally

The biggest problems will be:
-Exhaust manifolds
-Wastegate
-Turbo intake
-alternator
-Intercooler position


The rest will be the classic two-seater, internally emptied, rollcage and the usual mix of carbon, airride and bbs rims

We will see that “salade” will emerge from it.

Ooooh, this is exciting! If it's anything like your Golf, this will be great. I almost wish I hadn't started my Porsche yet so that I could "borrow" ideas, as I'm sure your build will be full of them.

Looking forward to this!
