Put in any motor and have fun...

Even a cheap v8 or motorcycle engine and that thing would be a hoot...

There should be a universal rule for side/bottom intrusion resistance vis carbon fibre or Kevlar panels. Hell stainless would be a vast improvement.

Make it all tube frame formula cars.

That cage is a scary mess. The driver side post is a leg breaker on drivers side impact, the hoop does not appear to have the necessary vertical support and the NASCAR bars have a number of issues. Surprised that cage passed an inspection.

Further, SCCA and NASA or PCA inspections are only as good as the inspector. Your likely to find the better inspectors at the bigger regional events/qualifiers.

That car looks pretty on the outside but questionably put to together.

I just traded my 911 race car for a Scuderia. I had the car built in 2008 from a '92 964 chassis with 993 3.6L motor, 6 speed trans. and running gear. 325HP on 2,100 lbs. Fully race car prepped for PCA GT3 class. Lots of race gear: cage connected to shock towers, fire suppression system, fuel cell, adjustable shocks & sway bars, Motorola radio, cools shirt, etc. Car was very fast. PCA Zone 7 & NASA PRC champ several times and 2nd place PCA nationally once. Low hrs on motor and trans. Recently rebuilt wheels, axles and shocks. Cost over $150K to build. Professionally maintained and track supported.

I got $50K as trade value. Race cars are extremely hard to sell. The range for 911 non-factory race cars is in the $25-$70K range. Without knowing more about hrs. on eng, trans, etc. I'd say it would sell at the low end of the range. You could easily spend $15K-25K on 1st yr. issues.

I have seen roll cages made out of bent exhaust pipes...
