I wouldn't swear by it, but it almost looks like an old Chevy Corvair motor.

Some searching brought me here:

It’s mostly in Dutch, but there are many, many pictures so you can follow the whole build up (even of the helmet) practically from scratch.

Sometimes the simplicity of a base Carrera brings out the best in a 911.

Very nice car..

I love this shot. It looks like the car is lowered a little. What suspension do you have?

The US OEM ride height was ridiculously high and floaty... I really wasn't up for spending the price of a nice dirt bike on coil-overs, so I decided to try H&R lowering springs on the OEM Bilstein struts.

Super happy with the results. Transformed the handling as well as the looks... Tested so far on highway, city streets, mountain roads and a day at the track.

When I had Porsche Euro springs installed in my car, my tech said: "Now your car is at the height that Porsche designed for it, not some DOT guy with a ruler..."

Nice pics, BTW, you had good light conditions.
