I was thinking about mid engine Vairs and was wondering about how difficult
it would be to transplant a Porsche Boxster powertrain into a Vair. The
base Boxster is 240 hp, the S models are 280. You can get the base motor on
eBay for $4,500
and an S motor for $8k:
I realize you would also want the transaxle, the computer and harness. I
don't have the resources to do this, but it occurs to me that it would be a
pretty sweet deal to have 280 hp and a six speed in a Vair. A Boxster
weighs in at 2,811 lbs. so on that score a Vair would compare favorably.
I'm sure it would take a bit of engineering to get the motor in place and
the suspension mated properly.
Just an interesting daydream I thought I'd thnow out there.
