Sometimes, life throws inconveniences at you. You can deal with it by either passing the problem to someone else, or applying a dose of common sense, a heaping of elbow grease, and take care of it.
I love the Porsche 911, and I mean love in a slightly obsessed and unhealthy way. Perhaps I've been influenced by Richard Hammond or have been hanging around here too much. Because this is one of the few places that understands the strange obsession with the "fancy Beetle."
The Porsche 911 GT2 is the most extreme of all the Porsche 911s, and the 993 generation is the one that started the trend of roided-up, rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive Porsche insanity. Like any barely-road legal car it belongs on the track, but somehow it looks fantastic on the street.
This year marks the 50th birthday of the most iconic sports car of them all, the Porsche 911. Now you can go the Jeremy Clarkson way and start bitching about how the whole idea of putting the engine in the rear was stupid, or start an argument about how it is only a tuned up Volkswagen, but no matter what you think,…

Jochen Bader is a total Bad-ass. Long a proponent of juicing up classic cars with modern powerplants and seeing what'll happen, he (and his team at Bader Racing) took a GT3-spec Porsche 3.6-liter mill from a 993-era 911 and slipped it into a Karmann Ghia. By "slipped" we of course mean "engineered to within an inch…
