The other day it was ICON’s 1949 Mercury, which still rocks the boat. Here comes another EV converted troublemaker: Dylan Coleman’s 1977 Porsche 911 Coupe. “The setup of the E-RWB makes 563ewhp (electric wheel horsepower), which is comparable to a car making 700hp at the crank.”
I think Porsche purists will love it. Not.

This little stop-motion video, made by Sören Städe and Johannes Grau, shows Matthias tearing apart a Porsche 3.2 engine (part 1). To convert it into a hot rod engine (part 2 — coming soon).

In their latest episode the wizards of Petrolicious (what the hell — when do you produce all this awesome stuff?) portray Jack Olsen ("Horsepower is something that looks great in a magazine article, but suspension is actually what gets you along the track ... fast."), his "Black Beauty II" 1972 Porsche 911 and his famous 12-Gauge Garage. Especially the garage is nothing for the faint-herated. Or is it just me who went green with envy?
Btw, 'episodes'. It ain't easy to follow Petrolicious' and their new releases, so here is everything you may have missed 'em. Enjoy.
