Stärke Will Make You A Boxster-Based Porsche Speedster

Fans of the iconic Porsche Speedster now have the opportunity to buy an incredibly accurate replica courtesy of a company called Stärke.

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Stärke has just revealed its replica Speedster which uses a Porsche Boxster as its base and then adopts a host of custom interior and exterior parts.

Stärke will accept any Boxster built between 1998 and 2012 and immediately sets about stripping the sports car down to its shell. From there, the company fits new body panels almost identical to the flowing and curvaceous parts of the original, including similar wheel arches and those famed circular headlights.

The company offers a range of different Boxster conversions to suit a variety of budgets. The packages start out with the Speedster CS for $59,950 (excluding the donor car).

For those that want more, both the Speedster Outlaw and Speedster Carbon Fiber Outlaw are available. The first of those adds some more modern styling cues to the sports car as well as a new exhaust system and Bilstein adjustable coilovers. The Speedster Carbon Fiber Outlaw looks largely the same as the regular Outlaw but utilizes body panels made from carbon fiber. It also adds a 375 hp, 3.7-liter engine.

Prices for the Outlaw start at $79,950 while the Carbon Fiber Outlaw costs a minimum of $149,950.

  • I’m in! That should be cool ! (please Porsche fans don’t kill me).

  • BE INTERESTING TO SEE AN ACTUAL CAR.

      Exactly. Renderings can show anything. Fitting this design to an actual Boxster chassis without compromising the looks will be very hard. Also, $59k for a high-quality conversion seems optimistic.

    It would be helpful to know someone skilled at custom fabrication when it comes to replacing not-quite-stock body panels if/when Stärke decides to close their shop.

  • TheBelltower

    I know I’m supposed to consider this blasphemous, but I really like it.

  • drc

    ugh.

  • pcurve

    that interior is totally wrong…

    • fabri99

      I was on board with it, until I saw the interiors of that poor thing.

    • it’s a Boxter interior…

  • Bash

    I love it, and the simplicity of the interior is just fantastic!!

  • not bad. hope theyll make it to production.

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    I’m not a huge resto-mod fan so I dunno…It looks pretty cool though. It does look kind of weird (as all resto-mods do) with that interior that doesn’t fit the rest of the car. You KNOW what it is.

  • Marty

    They need to make up their mind about the name. Is it Stärke or Starke? Ä and A are as different as A and E, they’re not just the same letter with or without decoration.

  • Astonman

    Saw the advertisement for this in the DuPont Registry and was intrigued. Use to have a ’67 912 and in sick way, I miss it – even after it almost killed me. This looks great! Love to see it in person.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Mmmmnn…no.

  • surprisingly WCC did it in a way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kW6t9U58RVs&t=179
