Up for auction is a 1976 Porsche 914 1.8L that has been converted to a 4.3L GM V/6 with approximately 175Hp and 250ft-lbs of torque. The car DOES RUN but DOES NOT DRIVE so please assume that this will require a full restoration. The prior owner informed me that the 4.3L was rebuilt prior to installation and that an Edelbrock Performer manifold and Edelbrock carb was installed with a ceramic coated Supertrap header and exhaust system, electric water pump, alternator, and Accel HEI ignition system. He was not sure of the specs on the internals so unfortunately I don't have any of the cam, piston, etc information. The engine has been installed with the trans adapter kit, motor mounts, and radiator but the accelerator cable, fuel lines, cooling fan, clutch cable, and shifter linkage still need to be hooked up. Also the car does come with a targa top and the front rotors and rear hubs have been drilled to accept 5 lug wheels although 4 lug Riverias are installed now.
Overall the body is pretty straight and rust free but the hell hole area will need some attention (see pics). The interior, brakes, wiring, lenses, windshield, and seals are all shot too so assume that they will all need attention. Basically assume that all of the cosmetic items on the car will need attention and that you are buying this for the conversion drive train and roller shell only.
The car currently comes with a bill of sale but if you require a CA title I can head down to the AAA office and acquire one for $150.

Ah, sibling rivalry. It really is a beautiful thing. It's even more beautiful when said siblings are automakers with very, very well-known racing histories. That's how you get videos like this, which is Audi's way of welcoming Porsche back to the top flight of Le Mans racing.

Yes, Audi has taken its R18 E-Tron Quattro back onto public roads, wowing schoolboys and scaring farmers (who appear to be riding classic Porsche tractors), as it travels from Ingolstadt to Zuffenhausen, just to taunt its corporate frenemy.
Take a look below for a video to see just what that teasing looks like.
The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo was arguably the best concept car of 2012, and Porsche has been building upon that momentum by teasing us with videos of its first-ever station wagon design. After showing us some driving shots of the Sport Turismo, Porsche released a more in-depth and behind-the-scenes look at what it took to take the Panamera shooting brake from a full-scale clay model to the final product we saw on stage at the Paris Motor Show. In the video, Michael Mauer, Porsche style director, and Mitja Borkert, general manager advanced design style, both give a little insight about what went into creating the Sport Turismo Concept.

More than just a station wagon version of the Panamera, the Sport Turismo has a totally distinctive look nose to tail. Some of the key elements the designers touch on in the video include the Porsche-signature raised front fenders, the wide rear shoulders, the front wing inspired by the 918 Spyder, and even some of the car's unique touches, including the headlights and the three-dimensional "Porsche" lettering across the liftgate made from glass. One of the more exciting aspects of the concept - which is sadly just glossed over in the video - is the rear liftgate spoiler that features "variable aerodynamics" that sounds like it acts similar to the retractable spoiler on the current Panamera.
We still don't know if the Panamera Sport Turismo will make it into production, but if you want to see what went into creating this exciting concept car and see the different build phases designers went through to create the Paris show car, check out the video by scrolling below.
Autocar wants to find Britain's best driver's car, and it's challenging a murderers' row of some of the world's best performance vehicles to find out, including the latest Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. All of them were therefore assembled at the Castle Combe Circuit to find a winner.
If it wants to take the crown from this pack of mostly European competitors, the 'Vette has to beat some steep competition. Its challengers include monsters like the Ferrari 458 Speciale, Ariel Atom 3.5R and Jaguar F-Type Coupe. As a further hurdle for the winner to clear, Autocar also has last year's champ among the fighters - the Porsche 911 GT3.
Even if you're not at all interested in the C7, there's still something here for practically any fan of fast cars. The competitors include relative oddities among the pack like the Renault Mégane RS Trophy and Alfa Romeo 4C. Plus, Autocar has some well-positioned microphones that let you hear the Atom wailing like a banshee and the roar of the 458 Speciale. Check out the video to see which one of these all-stars takes home the award this year.
