I purchased my GTM in August 2009, and have learned that she has taken on a life of her own. This build is into it's 8 the year, due to choices made along the way. I've named her Pandora from the legendary story of Pandora's Box...
Pandora is a component kit sold by factory five racing. Tube steel frame, with riveted aluminum panels for rigidity, and a hand laid fiberglass body.
The drive train consists of a stock LS2 crate engine, mated to a Porsche G50/01 5-spd transaxle. The exhaust system is custom made by Kooks, for the GTM.
The interior is 100% custom, Italian leather and alcantara. The instrument pod, is from a 997 porsche turbo. It has been gutted and re-worked by classic instruments to use more precise movements.
he rear engine bay hatch has been re-worked in order to allow for the venting of heat.
A custom rear spoiler was created by VRaptor Speedworks for the GTM.
The rest of the body is "stock", and appears just as Factory Five designed it.
