No, This Isn’t a Porsche 911 GT3 RS Cabriolet, but it Sure Does Look Like It
We recently covered some pretty epic Porsche conversions and this one would fit right in. The 911 GT3 RS never had a cabriolet version, so you have to make one yourself. There are two ways to go about it. The first one involves taking a GT3 RS and chopping its roof off. The second way is to get a lesser 911 Cabriolet and slap the body panels from a GT3 RS. Obviously, the latter is much easier, which is why Wicked Motor Work from California did exactly that.

2021 Porsche 911 (964) EV Restomod by Everrati
There’s nothing quite like a classic Porsche, and the 964-gen 911 holds a special place in a lot of hearts.
