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.

The Porsche Boxster and Cayman will forever nip at the heels of their big brother, the 911 Carrera, and perpetuating this tradition are the latest GTS variants, which add yet another arrow to the quiver of the plucky mid-engined platform.

The GTS' performance enhancements boost horsepower by a mere 15 and shave a tenth from 0 to 60, but Porsche's clever product planners and engineers have stuck to their familiar formula in making the Cayman GTS more desirable than the Boxster for dyed-in-the-wool performance enthusiasts. More on that shortly.
Laps around Spain's Circuito Mallorca RennArena and the nearby Serra de Tramuntana mountain range would shed further light on how the GTS differentiates itself from lesser Caymans.

After adding Italian motorcycle icon Ducati to its stable and spending $5.6 billion on the rest of Porsche, Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn says he's done shopping for a while.
"We have enough to do at the moment in taking our twelve brands to where we want to be," Winterkorn tells German newspaper Handelsblatt.
The misinformation first started back in May of 2007 - more than six years ago - when word came that Porsche was developing a compact utility vehicle to fill out its product line. Rumors swirled that the German automaker's future "Roxster" would be based on the then-upcoming Audi Q5. By September of 2010, the name had changed to "Cajun," but the vehicle was still expected to be "based heavily on the Audi Q5," said reports in the months that followed. One year later, the first test mules were spotted, the mechanics hidden beneath barely disguised Audi sheetmetal, which did nothing to give the upcoming model its own identity. And even after Porsche announced "Macan" as the vehicle's production name in early 2012, articles stated that it would "arrive on the same chassis as the Audi Q5, though with suspension, brake and engine tweaks suitable to the Porsche range."
It's no wonder that most still consider the all-new Porsche Macan nothing more than a heavily massaged Q5.
To help lift some of the mystery surrounding its latest release, Porsche hosted us in Germany for an in-depth look at its new crossover (while Europeans call it a "sport utility," its car platform allows us to call it a proper CUV). The technology workshop offered us insight to the design and mechanical execution, and it concluded with a short test ride. The trip was both enlightening and educational - and it left us with a whole new perspective on the Macan.
