This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess

This 1979 Custom Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" Is The Culmination of 1970s Excess

The 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo "Lil Hot Stuff" is a 600+ horsepower one-off that could be yours

The first automobile was invented in 1886 and since then many great cars have emerged. But even nearly 140 years after the automobile’s invention, there are very few cars that have a cult following as zealous as that of the Porsche 911. This is especially true for the air-cooled models, which are all-time classics. If we combine the significance of an air-cooled 911 with the cocaine-snorting excess of the 1970s, we can see how a one-off 1979, guards red, modified Porsche 911 Turbo can be listed for $599,000 by a Florida dealership.

Is This 2JZ-Swapped Dodge Charger The Ultimate Act Of Sacrilege?

Is This 2JZ-Swapped Dodge Charger The Ultimate Act Of Sacrilege?

Mike Finnegan from Roadkill has put a 2JZ GTE in a 1968 Dodge Charger. It’s one of the most outrageous builds ever done

We are all familiar with the tuning potential of the 2JZ engine, which makes it one of the more popular engine swaps. That said, there are certain boundaries one should not be crossing. This is exactly what Mike Finnegan, from Finnegan’s Garage YouTube channel, did, as he took the rustiest 1968 Dodge Charger and put a 2JZ GTE engine in it. While it’s up for debate whether that’s worse than putting an LS into it (at least it’s a V-8) some MOPAR fans are sure to blow a fuse or two over Finnegan’s build.

Someone Is Building A Real-Life CyberPunk 2077 Quadra V-Tech

The Quadra Turbo R V-Tech from Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to life in an ambitious project

Cyberpunk 2077 came out in December 2020 and quickly got a lot of flak for its numerous bugs and broken promises. Be it as it may, the game offered a very unique perspective on what cars would look like in the dystopian future. But for some, playing the game isn’t enough, which is exactly what we see on the YouTube channel Burning Wrenches, where the host has an affinity for fabricating stuff. One of its creations is a real-life replica of the Quadra V-Tech, featured in the game.

Rocket Bunny’s New Body Kit Makes The Toyota 86 Look Very Angry

If you think the Toyota GR86 looks docile, wait until you see the latest Rocket Bunny wide-body kit

If you follow the tuner scene, you are, most likely, familiar with the Rocket Bunny body kits. Originating from Japan, the Rocket Bunny body kits are as striking and as aggressive as possible for a road-going car. Kei Miura’s wide-body designs can make even the most docile-looking car look like a road-going predator. As soon as we learned of the new Toyota GR 86, we knew it was a matter of time before a dedicated Rocket Bunny kit was in the making. Now, we finally have images of the Rocket Bunny 86, and we like what we see.

This is Probably The Strangest Toyota MR2 You've Ever Seen

This is Probably The Strangest Toyota MR2 You’ve Ever Seen

Is this rare, mid-engine, Japanese sports car worth the asking price?

There aren’t many cars that offer a mid-engine layout at an affordable price. The Toyota MR2 is one of the last to do so, despite the last generation (1999-2007) lacking the previous one’s Ferrari-inspired design language. Motor1 recently covered a VM180 Zagato – one of only 100 made – that was auctioned off in Japan. No, we are acquainting you with another rare version – the MR2 Caserta by Modellista – of which 150 were made, and now, one is listed for sale at Eclection Specialty Auto Sales.

Rare Versions Of American Cars You Probably Didn't Know About

Rare Versions Of American Cars You Probably Didn’t Know About

These are some of the rarest versions of iconic American cars. And each one has a European connection

When you think of iconic, classic American cars, Cadillac Coupe DeVille, Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette, and Dodge Challenger are, often, some of the first to come to mind. And while each of them has had their fair share of special editions, we can’t help but wonder what classic American cars can be like, with a European twist. Whether it’s their design or an unusual engineering solution, these are the most obscure American classic cars ever to exist.

The Drag-U-La is one of the weirdest screen Cars you have ever seen. And now, it can be yours

If you love 1960s sitcoms (we are not judging), you may have come across “The Munsters,” which is a story about a family of benign monsters, in a way, similar to “The Addams Family.” In the episode dubbed “Hot Rod Herman,” there was a car named the “Drag-U-La.” As it turns out, the car is very much real and in working condition. Moreover, it’s for sale and here’s what you need to know about it.

This AMG-Powered Lotus Exige Is Pure Madness

This AMG-Powered Lotus Exige Is Pure Madness

This Lotus Exige Racecar is a crazy, street-legal, track weapon, powered by a 6.2-liter AMG V-8

The Lotus Exige may have been discontinued in favor of the Evija EV hypercar, but it’s still one of the best platforms for lightweight track weapons. It seems Quentin Boylan from Praetoria, South Africa, has recognized that and built his own extreme version of the British featherweight sports car. A while back, we wrote about another crazy project of his – an AMG V-8 swapped Toyota Hilux.

With the Exige, Quentin took things even further. He took the 6.2-liter V-8 out of a Mercedes SLS AMG and crammed it into the Lotus. The result is pure savagery.

You can find some amazing stuff on bringatrailer.com and this Jaguar XJS is a perfect example. Granted, a 1977 Jaguar XJS probably isn’t your first choice of platform for a performance build, but it shows that even a lazy gran tourer, like this Jaguar, can turn into a proper tire-shredding machine. It’s an ambitious father and son project that’s actually finished (yes, such a thing is possible) and now, it’s for sale.

Emilia Hartford No Longer Has The Most Powerful C8 Corvette

Emilia Hartford No Longer Has The Most Powerful C8 Corvette

The FuelTech C8 Corvette dethrones Emilia Hartford’s C8. It boasts more Power and a quicker Quarter-mile Time

The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is one of the most desired sports cars on sale today. So much so that GM is having difficulties keeping up with demand. The C8 is the first mid-engine Corvette to make it to production and, even before the arrival of any performance versions, the new platform has already proven to be very capable. Speaking of performance, ever since YouTuber Emilia Hartford built her own twin-turbo C8 “Vette” – the most powerful one in the world – we knew the race was on. And now, someone else has built an even more powerful one.

That Time When Mazda Teased Us With Modern Version Of The 1967 Cosmo But Didn't Make It

That Time When Mazda Teased Us With Modern Version Of The 1967 Cosmo But Didn’t Make It

This retro-inspired Cosmo 21 is a rotary-powered Roadster based on the Mazda Miata NB

The idea of a new car that looks like a classic is not a new one, as many carmakers and design studios have been romanticizing it for a long time. However, it became most obvious around the early 2000s, with cars like the muscle car trio – the Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, and cars like the Mini Cooper and Fiat 500, only to name a few. That said, while many of these concepts went into production, others did not. Such is the case with the 2002 Mazda Cosmo 21, which took the Miata NB and turned it into a faithful representation of the first Mazda to use a Wankel (rotary) engine.

SVE Oletha Is The High-Performance Z8 BMW Never Made

Did SVE make the perfect BMW? This BMW Z8-lookalike is actually a Z4 with an M3 GTS V-8 Engine stuffed in It

For better or worse (definitely worse), it seems that old-school performance cars with driver engagement in mind will be built by boutique manufacturers and in very small numbers. Although we occasionally get cars like the Toyota GR86 and Nissan Z, modern cars keep getting heavier, more complicated, and more artificial. With that being said, Smith Vehicle Engineering (SVE) has taken a BMW Z4 E86 and has done something remarkable with it.

Ford Eluminator is a 281 horsepower electric crate motor

Could this change the future of crate engines and engine swaps?

The idea behind crate engines and engine swaps for a long time has been quite simple: put a more powerful engine where a less powerful engine used to be. It may be complicated for a novice mechanic, but for the experienced, it is a rather simple job.

However, with multiple companies releasing electric crate motors, could this change how we think about engine swaps?
