I followed the build on that car personally as I visit Remmele regularly.That's a steal at 44k...it cost much more to build it.The owner is selling it because it's too fast for him,too extreme...
It is the nicest build Remmele has done to date imho.If I had the money I would buy it immediately!

He has a Porsche 5 speed transmission and uses a Porsche shifter.That particular CAE shifter is originally for a Porsche 911.The "tunnel" is round and the original vw shifter is much smaller.The Porsche shifter base is wider so the flat side will not fit firmly on the tunnel.

Good eye, it is for porsche indeed. However I like the look of the chopped tunnel, still don't see the why.

The CAE site says they make a shifter for porsche tranny in beetle with beetle "ground plate" as well:

BTW this car is just awesome

Hi

This car certainly has all the fruit but to me the wheel sizing makes it look out of proportion.
