Just a Porsche 911 on Treads, Pulling a Toyota Tacoma From the Mud

Just a Porsche 911 on Treads, Pulling a Toyota Tacoma From the Mud While most people with old Porsche 911s are pampering them, waiting for the cars to ripen like savings bonds, somebody has turned one into a delightfully perverse all-terrain vehicle and is clearly living their best life. Jason Lightner, a Porsche enthusiast who has been taking these cars outside their comfort zone for years, posted this little clip from what appears to be the mountains east of Los Angeles, describing the scene simply as a “weekend’s antics.” I have so many questions. But then again, just knowing that this is a Thing That Happened brings me tremendous joy.

Rod Emory's latest creation is a twin-turbo rocket that weighs just 1950 lbs.

Porsche specialist Rod Emory is known for building some incredibly cool custom 356 s. This one is certainly the most outrageous. This was nothing more than a rusted-out 1960 356 B coupe, a yellow barn find in a sorry state when Emory got a hold of it. As you can see, it looks a bit different now.

Porsche specialist Rod Emory is known for building some incredibly cool custom 356s. This one is certainly the most outrageous. He calls it the 356 RSR, and we love it.

This was nothing more than a rusted-out 1960 356B coupe, a yellow barn find in a sorry state when Emory got a hold of it. As you can see, it looks a bit different now. All of the body panels, as well as the floor pans, have been replaced with new hand-shaped aluminum. The fenders have been widened to accommodate some extremely cool five-spoke Momo wheels. The rear end has a sort of chopped teardrop shape for aerodynamic efficiency. It's all very striking. You either love it or you hate it.

Porsche Electrified Hypercar Coming 2025 At The Earliest

Porsche Electrified Hypercar Coming 2025 At The Earliest Company boss says battery tech will be ready for a 918 Spyder successor in 3-4 years. It was mid-2015 when Porsche concluded production of the 918 Spyder, but it’s going to take a while before a new flagship will fill in the void. Much like it was the case with Porsche’s member of the Hypercar Holy Trinity, the replacement is going to adopt an electrified powertrain. It remains to be seen whether it’ll be a hybrid or a pure electric machine, but regardless of the setup it will adopt, don’t expect to see it before 2025.

It might have the longest, most unoriginal name of any sports car out there, but trust us, the top-tier hybrid Panamera is a hell of a car. It may no longer be the fastest car on the block, but it'll always remain special. This one's painted in a lovely red color called "Magma Orange," and you can own it.

May 26, 2019. This Might Be the Most Extreme Porsche 356 Ever Built . May 25, 2019. Celebrating 50 Years of the Porsche 914. The once-controversial entry-level mid-engine sports car turns 50 this year, and Porsche is throwing a party at its museum.

The engine is just as interesting as the body. It started out as a 964-generation 911 flat-six, but the middle two cylinders were chopped out-after all, a 356 needs a flat-four. Two Garrett GT28R turbochargers more than make up for the lost pistons. It displaces 2.4 liters, and makes a bit under 400 horsepower. For a car weighing 1950 pounds, that's more than enough.

Emory brought the car over to Hoonigan to star in a Build Biology video, and he breaks down just how much work was put into this outrageous machine.

The Oldest-Surviving Porsche Will Probably Fetch $20 Million at Auction.
Type 64 #03 was built in 1940 by Ferry Porsche, and it's the only one of its kind to survive. In a press release announcing the upcoming sale of the car you see here, auction house RM Sotheby's declares it "the most significant surviving piece of Porsche engineering and design history." It's hard to argue with that, since this is believed to be the oldest-surviving Porsche. It's so old, it actually predates the company by nearly a decade. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.
