take a look...

the text says there are papers with it from the factory that say this is a unique car...

does this mean they had a look at it and said they`ve never seen such a thing before, or that they made it??

I think it is unlikely it is a factory car, note the non standard steering wheel and air filters. It looks very nice though but what is that black square on the boot lid?

What the hell is this? And I second the query on the strange black square on the boot.....

Will be very interesting to know the following:
a) is the roof water-tight
b) will it look as strange as I think it will with the panels off........?

strange machine..

it`s a german website, but a dutch seller...
so the input mask is in german i think that`s why it says "semi automatic"

i`d really like to see a picture with the roof off aswell! :-)

I don't care - it looks great, and assuming its watertight, brilliant idea.
I have a webasto roof that came out of a +2, that I might get fitted to my JPS - but I'd rather have this................Wonder if it cud be done with a single roof panel like an old Porsche 911 Targa ? jc

Don't see why not...
Should in theory be much easier given that its all fibreglass...
Could be a good reason for buying one of those cheap ropey +2 bodies that sometime come up on Ebay, so you could practise...
So whos going to be first with the jigsaw!!
