A modified 90s hatchback shows Porsches how it’s done

When you think about compact cars with great tuning potential, 8 out of 10 people would probably think of the Honda Civic. However, in Europe, there’s another popular alternative – the Volkswagen Golf. A while back, a video was circulating around the internet where someone in a Nissan 350Z was chasing a Porsche 997 GT3. At the same time, a stock-looking Golf Mk1 came out of nowhere and embarrassed both the Z-car and the 911, without even a sweat. The Golf on the video is an Mk2 and it’s said to be the fastest on the Nurburgring.

The YouTuber Misha Charoudin, once again, supplies a video from what seems to be his natural habitat – the Nurburgring – from where he’s showing us some of the craziest track cars, to ever step on the “Green hell”.

The comrade introduces us to Nige, the owner and builder of this monstrosity, who tells us in detail about all he has done. It doesn’t take long for you to realize, it’s not your typical mild bolt-on build.

A lot of fabrication has been done by Nige in order to optimize every aspect of this “Porsche Eater”. Nothing is for show and everything you see has a function. The car even has some parts from e British Touring car. Take a look at how this modified Golf gives Porsches a proper spanking around the “Ring”.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
