In order to create the Bugster Siegfried Rudolf bought himself a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle and a 2000 Porsche Boxster and went about creating this crazy beast.

Siegfried is the proud owner of a tuning shop called CarMaxx which specializes in restoring old Volkswagens and Porsches but one day he had the crazy idea of making the Bugster when he noticed similar the two cars where in size.

The Bugster was created by fitting the shell of the VW Beetle to the Porsche Boxster floorpan and then created custom fenders in order to fit much larger 18-inch wheels. Many of the Porshe parts were transferred over and an adjustable suspension was installed to hold the whole thing together.

For the interior Siegfried chose to use mostly the Boxster Porsche parts with a few VW features here and there. The end result is the Bugster that kicks out 270 hp and handles like a dream.

So what do you think of this custom bug? COOL OR CRAZY?
