This Porsche 911 Has The Same Seating Position As A McLaren F1

And it’s for sale.

There are a lot of amazing cars going on sale at this month’s Mecum Auction in Monterey, California, but this 2008 Porsche 911 S will undoubtedly be one of the most bizarre vehicles to cross the lot. For some odd reason, the owner of this 911 has decided to convert the vehicle’s seating arrangement to mimic that of the McLaren F1, with the driver’s seat bang in the middle. According to the listing, the process of moving the gauge cluster, pedals, center console, steering wheel, shifter and parking brake took over 300 hours of labor.

The center-drive conversion by Centro 911 has made the sports car a more track-focused vehicle. As a bonus it's even more comfortable for passengers sitting in the now usable rear seats. As one would expect, moving everything to the middle has come at a substantial price. The conversion kit itself costs $75,000, not including the price of the donor car. Besides the completely reworked interior, the rest of the 911 is stock with the vehicle boasting a 3.8-liter flat-six engine and a six-speed manual transmission. With only 30,450 actual miles, the 911 is estimated to go for $85,000 to $115,000.We’re not sure if this vehicle is worth that much money but we love the centered driver's seat.
