If you liked race cars and Porsches you'd leave their perfection untouched. You own an air cooled precision machine and you want to add a bulky V8 to it?
Do you realize what that will do to the handling?
You just like big straight muscle car power and want to be able to say you own a Porsche to the women you talk to.
As a Porsche driver, I am disgusted by your abomination.
a Porsche is a street legal race car by design (excluding the 991). It doesn't need race car styling cues, it is a race car. You can buy one and slap it on a track. Your V8 will make the handling completely out of whack.
Whatever you do, don't show up to any Porsche meets, you'll be laughed at.
Although I agree that this is very, very, dumb, LS1 vs. Carrera 3.2 weight is probably only 30-40lb difference (LS1 might even be lighter.. aluminum block).
Only a not-true Porsche enthusiast would do something like this. Leave the car alone.
