a pal of mine, Rich van Meeteren, instant messaged me some shots of what has to be my least favorite modified 928, the Carelli convertible. when I asked him what he paid, he said it was under ten grand. I'm not sure what these cars are worth today, but the price Rich paid suggests he didn't get beat up too bad.

that headless 928 looks like a suppository with wheels, but in all fairness, I've never seen one in the flesh so I've got to believe Rich when he told me it looks much better in person; this is a case where pictures don't seem to do justice.

I told him to hold on to it for as long as he could. much like the horrid looking Beutler coupés, they'll no doubt become a serious collector's item worth more cash than anyone could've ever imagined. twenty years from now, the market will see these cars as a significant piece of Porsche history and price them accordingly especially in a market where the 928 will surely be very sought after.

although Carelli was in the business of converting 928s to dropheads, I've no clue who the fuck the company that converted this car is. their website,  
http://www.AutoGraphSpecialistCars.co.uk, is dead, so there's no way of knowing just how many 924s were sacrificed for such a conversion. unlike Bieber who was a very real and legitimate company that discovered a market hungry for 924 and 944 Cabriolets before Porsche had introduced their version with the S2 in 1989, the creator of this Spyder is of unknown pedigree.

they're certainly not the first company to cut up a 924 offering its owner a place in the exotic one-off Porsche realm, and probably not the last as these cars, for the moment, are fairly inexpensive to risk such a conversion.

I used to pound my fist on the keyboard and fire off salvos of venomous rhetoric at the owner or company who committed such a crime of altering the lines Porsche's designers worked so hard to perfect. but I don't see the point these days especially when the attempt was an honest one in keeping the integrity of the car's original design somewhat intact; like this 924.

it's not to my liking, but who am I to decided what's proper or not? in assuming such an elitist position, I'm no better than the other dickhead purists I love to bash. lots of enthusiasts will undoubtedly see the beauty of this 924 Spyder and embrace it as not only a Porsche, but a Porsche that Porsche should've built.

highball!
