In the late 1960s, F1 cars used aerodynamic effects used in a big way, with many teams installing huge wings on struts, but auto enthusiast Wesley Kagan took things a step further by building his own from a Porsche Boxster. To make this a reality, he had to first use the Forza Motorsport game to mock up a shell before picking up a used Boxster for $2,500. What he got was a running engine, transmission, brakes, steering rack, and other technical components. Read more for a video and additional information.
When all was said and done, it took around six months before heading out to its first track day. Unfortunately, there were still a few issues, like a crank pressure problem and radiator issues, but in the end, the car was able to make it around and even speed through the front straight. As of now, it’s been eight months, and the finishing touches are being put on the vehicle as this story goes live.
