And it doesn't cost any more than a normal Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet. Thanks, Depreciation!
Meet the Centro 911 based on a 2010 997 Carrera S Cabriolet, but with the driver's seat mounted in the middle akin to the legendary McLaren F1. While it’s technically a three seater like the iconic ‘90s supercar from Woking, there’s actually not much space for the two passengers, unless they’re kids. The right-side rear passenger seat is the worst of the two because most of the space in front of it is occupied by what used to be the center console, so you’d be better off on the left-side rear seat. That being said, it won’t be much of a downer for anyone in the market for a Porsche 911 Cabriolet with the driver's seat installed in the center.
The Centro 911 is the work of Ohio-based Trinity Motorsports Group and is the result of investing approximately $85,000 (excluding the donor car cost), according to an article published by Autoblog roughly four years ago. Besides the unusual seat arrangement, which also required moving the steering wheel, pedals, and the PDK shift lever, the cabin is pretty much stock, albeit it does have a substantial amount of carbon fiber you won’t find on a regular 997 Carrera S Cabriolet.
It seems to be in pretty good shape and it has covered only 15,836 miles (25,485 kilometers) according to the listing published by a dealer in Roswell, Georgia. It has been inspected and maintained by the dealer and it does not have any known mechanical issues.
After four owners, the Centro 911 is looking for a new home and you can enjoy a McLaren F1-like driving experience for only a fraction of the price: $53,999. It seems like a bargain once you factor in the investment made, but even so is it really worth the asking price?
