saw a porsche today...

well after i finished my last final today i was driving home and saw this really sweet looking porsche. I tried to find the writing that said what model it was but no luck. I will try to describe it as much as i can, i would appreciate if someone could tell what porshe that was...
OK so it was an older style porsche, it had 2 tiny tailights and 1 like brake light which was on top of the trunk on the outside. The front looked like a Toyota MR 2 front where the headlights open up. It also had 2 HUGE foglingts. I dunno if they are stock or not but they looked really nice on it. Also, it was really wide, especially where the tires are.

ohh yeah and it was really loud... i dunno if thats because it had aftremarket exhaust but just pointing that out...

thanks in advance.

I think the guy just shaved the reflective thing in between the tail lights. I've looked for pics everywhere and the tailights are all the same. Just imagine the middle part fiberglassed...

Um, I had already fixed the link. The reason it won't let you see it bigger is because you my friend, uploaded from photobucket.

Your picture is just the tripod picture thing, and you can't see the car, but I saved the picture (the thumbnail, because the bigger one I couldn't find anywhere) and uploaded it to my photobucket, so that it could be seen...I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to say

Wasn't the 930 a limited production run based off of the race cars?
