1957 PORSCHE SPEEDSTER CARRERA GT REPRODUCTION
'TIMELESS RACED INSPIRED TRIBUTE'
You are looking at one of the most sorted out, well designed and attention-grabbing German Tribute cars ever
fabricated. This gorgeous sports car began it's life as a "FiberFab Californian" and was recently completed
restored and improved. A fresh (5000 miles) 1835 with single TURBO motor, custom exhaust and oval tip propel this
charming little beast (190 HP estimated). A new DAN MILLER custom interior ($10K to reproduce) with custom luggage
front and rear duffle, race peddles, original style wood wheel, sound deadening, piped loop carpet, fully
upholstered trunk & lid, 914 gauges, functional roll bar with meticulous hand stitched seams and extreme attention
to every detail make it an up-close stunner and a show winner.
Package trays, storage pockets, drink pockets, custom seats with ultra comfortable bottom webbing, top of the line
faux-leather (more costly than real leather with 10x the durability and moisture resistance) , 4x 12volt accessory
plugs and a crystal clear, LOUD & MASSIVE dual amp, 1000 watt sound system complete with blue tooth, concealed 6
speakers (2x 6x9"s with coved upholstered scoops to keep with retro vibe + 2x full spectrum 6"s + 10" under
dash/down firing subwoofers) complete the practicality and drivability checklist!
All Halogen and LED lighting (bright as you'd want!), vintage amber fog lights, front buckles, stone guards, custom
3m vinyl stripping, matching satin olive green/gold wheels, new tires (205/50 front 225/50 rear), racing style
front stabilizer/sway bar, new brakes (front disc, rear drum)
I have had many of these "replicas"...this is unique among the pack. Recently we took a 1200 mile trip to
Rennsport Reunion 2015, Laguna Seca Raceway for the largest Porsche meet possibly in the world; the president of
the Vintage Speedster Owners' club put our car in the very front and said ...QUOTE:
"This is what a true enthusiast's reproduction should look and sound like....not everyone can afford a real
speedster nor would they drive it on the street...you hit the nail on the head, man!!"
Did I mention that hard on the throttle it sounds like an enraged banshee, yet soft on the peddle and she purrs
like a kitten...literally.
You can buy some cookie cutter version of this car, a cheaper replica for $25K BUT YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE BADDEST
SPEEDSTER TRIBUTE EVER BUILT!!!
A perfect fusion of a classic 356 tourer, Le Mans race car, classic muscle car, James Dean era icon and daily

Some stories are so sad and depressing, they make you want to go back to bed and pull the covers over your head. This is one such story. 14-year-old Raphael Wittman was suffering from an unspecified form of terminal cancer when he was invited by the children's cancer charity Kinder Krebs Hilfe to a charity drive organized by Porsche Forum Austria. During the drive, the Porsche Boxster Wittman was riding in was involved in a head-on collision. Both of his legs were broken and he bit off his tongue in the wreck. He died seven weeks later, in a Vienna hospital. Now, his father is suing the charity, claiming that the accident robbed his son of the will to live.
"The accident set off a chain of events starting with the doctors putting him on new medication for the cancer he had. He was always a fighter, but suddenly he was saying that he was not going to fight any more," Franz Wittman told Austria's Kurier, according to The Guardian. "We would have had a wonderful last time together [on vacation] but it never happened because of the accident."
Father and son were originally planning to go to Tenerife to spend time together, although those plans were cancelled following the accident.
As part of Motor Trend's Best Driver's Car competition, the buff book has held its third iteration of the World's Greatest Drag Race. With an airfield and a dozen of the world's finest performance cars at its disposal (oh, and a helicopter), the MT team did what any good group of enthusiasts would do, and tried to figure what car could cover a quarter mile the quickest. World's greatest drag race, indeed.
The contestants, as MT points out, cover a huge variety of engine types, drivelines, aspiration types and body styles, making for a genuinely varied and interesting field of competitors. Here's the full list of cars taking part.

The idea of a diesel-powered Porsche is the sort of thing that sounds really, really weird... until you actually drive it. The result of sticking glow plugs under the hood of Stuttgart's finest, though, is a vehicle that's nearly as entertaining as a gas-powered model but with much more torque and better fuel economy. Considering that, we think it's absolutely splendid news that following previous reports, Porsche has now confirmed a diesel-powered Macan for the US market.
"We are now busy with the development and the engineering," Andre Oosthuizen, Porsche's North American marketing VP, told Automotive News. "I can confirm that V6 diesel offering with about 245 horsepower."
Yep, that's the same 3.0-liter V6 found, most notably, in the CUV's Audi Q5 platform-mate as well as a plethora of other Volkswagen Group vehicles, both in the US and abroad. Stuttgart already offers the 3.0-liter oil-burner in the Euro-spec crossover, where it churns out 258 hp and 427 pound-feet of torque.
