Porsche 911T RSR recreation – The orange eye catcher

Yes, this orange stunning car definitely draws people’s attention at the classic car show at Mantorp last year. It’s a gorgeous car. With very brutal design.

The ducktail and the Carrera striping in combination with the dope body kit and brutal wheels makes it hard to believe that this actually is a Porsche 911T from 1969. A car launched in 1967 that replaced the 912 and introduced as the new entry level Porsche. The 911T is not a powerhouse, but the little two liter engine with its puny 110 horsepower has both the right sound and character.

And it’s faster than you might think. Bear in mind that the little car only weighs 1070 kilo, the car accelerates from 0-60 in just 8,3 seconds (according to 356-911.com). This is impressive, and flat out it will do 124 mph (199,5 km/h). Pretty nice, right?

From a distance this car looks like half a million. And many visitors flocked around it, admiring it with eyes big as dinner plates. This car is definitely an eye catcher!

Porsche Carrera GT – Man, it was fast

The very same day that I was having lunch at Arlanda Motor City, this beauty was rolled out from a large trailer. Porsche had really nailed it when it comes to performance with this, the mighty Porsche Carrera GT. Definitely nor the most beautiful Porsche, but it sure hauled ass. 0-100 km/h took just 3,9 seconds and its V10 delivered 612 horsepower. And, yes. It’s really expensive nowadays.
