Meet the Nissan that became a Maser(a)sche. Or should we call it Porscherati? Any of the two would very accurately describe what’s going on with this car, which was made to look like two completely different products, depending on which end you were looking at.
This car started life as a Nissan 350Z. We can tell it’s not a 370Z just by looking at its B-pillar design, as well as the design of its shoulder line.
Now, aside from the Liberty Walk-like fender extensions, what really stands out here are the front and rear ends, where the former has been made to look like its from a Maserati GranTurismo, and the latter from a Porsche 911.
The images were posted on Reddit’s number one thread for bad car mods and to be honest, I’d disagree with this being categorized as a bad mod in any way, shape or form. Sure, it’s kind of ridiculous to have a Maserati front and a Porsche rear on your Nissan, but the execution is really good. Somebody definitely knew what they were doing.
One could also argue that if you parked this car at a great distance and asked somebody to identify its front or rear styling, they would almost certainly assume it’s either a wide-bodied GranTurismo or a 911.
Which end of this Nissan 350Z do you think looks best?
