Porsche Purists Will Projectile Vomit When They See This Front-Engined 911 Dually

Meet "Ratty Porsche," the greatest affront to the snooty club of Porsche purists we've ever seen. Chevy 454 up front, bagged frame in the middle, and dually tires out back. RWB eat your heart out.

We don't have many details on the build, done by Diversified Performance Innovations in Dubuque, Iowa. The sacrificial car is this 1976 Porsche, and the 7.4 liter engine comes out of this huge old Chevy pickup.

The car has 4-link suspension, it sits on bags, and the original chassis is mounted on a ladder frame. The old seats have been thrown out for some rat rod-style metal buckets. We were hoping that since they pulled the Porker's flat six, DPI could put rumble seats in the back, but it looks like the rear is all full of suspension and a humongo differential.

We don't know if DPI plans on fabricating fender flares to cover those four rear wheels, but if they do it will put the buys at RAUH-Welt Begriffto shame.

While Porsche purists might cringe at this build, already hammering out cries of "you could've built a track car you turd!!" into the comment section, we would like to remind them that Porsche himself designed a dually race car back in the 1930s, the Auto Union Type C/D.

I dont see the issue with this at all. They took a 70s Porsche (shitty era for anything but movies, shitty carmaker too. Lambo is where its at) and made it much better. Reasons why this is awesome:

1. Front engined is better. Handles better, better in the snow, better for safety.

2. 7.4L Chevy engine is the shit. Its got 7.4L which means itll have around 500-650hp

3. Bagged frame makes it lower to teh ground so it handles better. Better air flow, and its fucking sweet.

4. No engine compartment to make air flow worse, throw a K&N air filter on it and itll be mad fast.

5. Double the rear tires = double the tracktion. Better traction = better grip. Better grip = more speed. more speed = more poooon.

6. chipped paint is awesome, makes it look old. Old is cool.

7. that dog is fucking sweet, I bet it hates cats.

Dont bitch about this Porchse, it's better now that its AMERICAN.
