INTRODUCING THE WORLD'S FIRST
944 "S2 Widebody Spyder"
"A TRUE MASTERPIECE BY IFC RACING - RACINE, OHIO"
The 944 S2 Widebody Spyder Conversion included widebody quarters with an integral rear bumper and side skirts. The cabriolet top was permanently removed and a custom hard cover with "Speedster Humps" was designed to cover the rear seats and the area where the cabriolet top once resided and then molded into the quarters. Although Porsche never intended for this car to be a roadster, IFC Racing took an an aprroach that asked, "I wonder how Porsche would have designed this" while finalizing the details of their own design. The front of the car remained the same and stayed true to the original 944 S2 design. The goal was to transform my 944 S2 Cab into a sleek and aggressive looking "roadster" with a wider stance and a slightly updated appearance, while keeping its nostalgic appeal..... We wanted to create the feel of a "Concept Car" of the 1990s. A car that Porsche designed, but never built! I think that IFC Racing "Hit a Homerun"!
