That isn't a standard model Porsche. It's either a 911 with a 959 style bodykit or maybe a kit car based on a Beetle. (It could also be a one off customised 911, by an owner.)

Note that the photos (at least the front on shot) are mirrored - switched left to right (Look carefully at the Porsche emblem.

This is some sort of inexpensive or incomplete (without a lot of detail and trim pieces - third party 959 type body kit. I say incomplete because lots of small trim pieces you'd expect to see on a stock factory car are missing - no side market or turn signal lights, etc. That it is an aftermarket fiberglass kit is clear, front valance vents are not cut out, headlights not gasketed and bezeled, etc., etc., etc. Judging from the window glass, position of the gas filler door, and the rather large gaps between the wheel well edges and the tires, the car underneath is a '70's 911 of some sort.
