Joey Seely’s daily driver, most would imagine would be some crazy Porsche. But as Speedhunters discovers is a tame beast. We were lucky enough to see Joey’s Project Nasty in it’s infancy. It was red, yes. But it was unfinished and raw. Joey had a 1985 Porsche Carrera tucked to the side of the Southern California Porsche shop known as BBI Autosport.
There is so much customization that Joey has done to Project Nasty, but what is not seen is the most impressive. The motor comes from a 1994 Porsche Carrera RS America 3.6L. Add in a 996 GT3 Cup crank and other internals to make a wonderful motor to whined out. We love the simple bumper exit exhaust pipes and the OE styling of the fifteen52/Magnus Walker Outlaw design wheels.
KW Comp coilovers and Tarett swaybars round off the suspension. The fender archers are hand formed to complement the OE styling of the Getty Design carbon-kevlar bumpers. The interior is simple. It’s designed to be a drivers car.
BBI Autosport is the creation of Betim and Joey who are known in the world as one of the top builders of Porsche Motorsport vehicles. You have seen plenty of their Porsche projects around and I’m sure you will be seeing more.
