Friends Vehicle

This is a friends car that I just went and checked out. The chassis is a 1970 Porsche 911, it has the front bumper from a 94, the rear quarter panels from I believe an 89 911 Turbo, and the front fenders were from sometime in the 80s.

As you can see, it has been slightly modified. And it is still not quite finished yet.













I'll wait a little bit before I post the picture of the engine. But look at what it says on the side of the wing.

Re: Friends Vehicle

Well, it is by all means not a stock Porsche engine, or a Porsche engine at all. He originally built the engine with the intentions on running it turbo'd. However it was just too hot and couldn't get the engine compartment to get cooled off, so he ended up taking the turbo off. :( He did say that when he had the turbo on, he was going down the road and hit the throttle and the front tires came off the ground about 2 inches.

It is currently making around 430ft lbs of torque at about 3200rpm.



And yes, it still fits in the rear of the vehicle and only weighs about 60lbs more than the stock air cooled engine that used to be in it.

WOW! That is quite the frankenstein car and it pulls it off incredibly well! Your friend is quite the artist and has good taste. If you were to show some pics of under the hood to some Germans they would scream bloody hell! As mr_y82 said give some specson the engine please. Very cool post.

Re: Friends Vehicle

Wish I knew all the specs of the engine and drive train, he is running a 9.8:1 compression. While it was turbo'd he had it at 8:1. He routed water coolant lines to the front of the car and put in a radiator. He fabricated his own air conditioning system as well.

Right now he has some details to work on, like getting all the trim around the windows painted. He's putting in a digital dash board and going to make a mold of the current dash and have a custom carbon fiber dash.

If you lined up with this car at a stop light thinking your going to outrun an old porsche, you'll only think of that for a split second until you hear that V8 roar in the back.
