This is a partially completed Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder Replica project (Think of the black car from the first couple of seasons of Miami Vice if you're old enough to remember!!).  The donor car is a 1981 Nissan 280zx Turbo.  As you can see, the top has been removed and the body panels have been fabricated and fitted to the car.  The original 6 cylinder turbo engine is present but it does not run and I have no idea if it is repairable (I had intended to put in a small block V8 so it was irrelevent).  I have too many projects going and need to thin down so I can focus on and finish something :-)

 

This project still needs work including a top, bumpers, headlights, tail lights, badges, wire spoke wheels, new uphosltery or recover the existing, and all dash pieces such as gauges, vents, levers, etc...  Also need to either repair existing engine or put in a new one with compatible transmission.

 

It will be an awesome car when complete.  I just am running out of time and money to do all the projects I had going.  All I want out of this is what I have in it which is the buy it now price.  Buyer is responsible for arranging shipping.  Remember, you need to tell the shipper that the car does not run.

 

I have 15-20 more pictures of the car from the beginning to where it is now, if interested in seeing them please contact me.  The last several pics above are of actual Ferrari's so you can see what it should look like when complete and to help determine what pieces need to be purchased and installed.  I can also put you in touch with the company that fabricated the body panels and installed them as they are a great resource to utilize during the remainder of the build

Subcompact sales slump, yet again

Maserati and Lamborghini pull out of Iran

Wed, 16 Jan 2013 08:02:00 EST

Daimler is out, Toyota is out, Porsche is out, Hyundai, PSA Peugeot-Citroën are out and when it comes to selling cars in Iran, now Maserati and Lamborghini are out, too. The definitive pullouts of those last two automakers are said to be reactions to a press conference held by a group called United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI). The group highlights businesses that sell in both the US market and Iran, and works to get those businesses to choose one market or the other.
UANI said it had sent letters to Maserati and Lamborghini about their dealings in Iran, but that the letters went unanswered. Mark Wallace, head of UANI and a former US ambassador to the United Nations, held a press conference in October of last year that referenced the two companies. Apparently Lamborghini contacted Wallace just after the press conference and told him "they were out, they weren't doing any business in Iran anymore."
Discussions with Maserati then took place, and the Italian automaker said it had been out of Iran ever since Fiat announced it was leaving the country in May 2011. UANI said Maserati had been in talks with an Iranian distributor, however, and that distributor was continuing to use the Maserati name. The carmaker has since cut all ties with Iranian interests and has prevented its name from being used, adding that its new models will not be able to be sold there because they won't pass regulations the country's regulations.

Maserati GranTurismo successor to be smaller, fight Porsche 911

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 17:45:00 EST

The Chevrolet Corvette, Jaguar F-Type and Porsche 911 all belong to a club that shuns the Maserati GranTurismo as an outsider. You see, those three key sports cars all measure within an inch of one another in length - 176 to 177 inches and change - while the Maserati comes in at over 192 inches. Naturally, there's extra length between its wheels, as well.
While those extra inches would seemingly pay dividends in interior roominess and storage space, those are not exactly the most important attributes in the segment, which values proper proportions and proper driving feel over all else. All of this is why it comes as little surprise that Maserati is working on a smaller version of its two-door sports car platform when the next generation is ready in roughly three years.
According to Motor Trend and echoing rumors we've heard in the past, the smaller model will be known as the Gran Sport while a larger model will still be called GranTurismo in coupe form and GranCabrio in convertible guise. We're told, again, to expect Maserati's new 404-horsepower supercharged V6 engine as standard, while the V8 would still be a possible option.
