2003 Stola GTS

Going back to Turins coach-building tradition, Stola have transformed a standard production car into thier custom design. Stola S.p.A. will display its new prototype, Stola GTS, at the 73rd Geneva Motor Show.

The following parts were modified on the Porsche Boster to transform it into the Stola GTS:

-completely modified exterior and aerodynamics -modified interior, inlcluding the tunnel, instrument panel and floor -new 3600cc 996 engine equiped with with turbos -the brake system & upgraded suspension

With this project, Stola have tried to revive an early racing atmosphere, both in specificaion and the special blue and orange colour typical of the endurance races of those years.

Stola’s passion for cars and the desire to show it, are the reasons that led them to the manufacturing of this new prototype, turning to the outside only for the stylistic conception.

This custom-built car will be produced, on request, as limited edition to a maximum number of three examples.
