Novecentoundici Cinquino

for those who are not so good in italian: its about a 911 Fiat 500

the story behind is quite simple: an italian mechanic put a porsche engine in an old fiat 500, i saw this on TV and wanted to make the same in scale.
i decided not only to use the engine, but to transfer also the complete interior, suspension, wheels and tyres.
and the rest was a lot of squeezing and cutting to make everything fit into the tiny fiat.
the wheel-arches were completely made of putty and the engine has "lost" its turbo due to lack of space and for optical reasons.
but later on the turbo will appear in a different project ...

That's great, I like yours much better than the 1:1 inspiration. Excellent job on the paint and bodywork! The exhaust and the diffuser are nice touches.
