From back when a stripped out 911 (even something with an "RS" badge) was cheaper than the standard car. Because, duh, it had less in it... :lol:

Sorry for spamming this thread, but Lanzante are going to make 11 930 Turbo restomods featuring the 1980s TAG Porsche Turbo V6 engine that McLaren used.

Lanzante is best known for their restoration work and its Le Mans winning McLaren F1 of 1995. More recently its skilled craftspeople have set to work on creating a road legal and Longtail variant of the McLaren P1 GTR track car. However, its latest project might be the most grin-inducing of them all. Lanzante is to build 11 930 Porsche 911 Turbos featuring the legendary TAG-Porsche Formula 1 engines.

This is interesting, but I wonder where they will source their engines from. They haven't been made since 1987, so I can't imagine that there is plenty of stock left laying around with complete useable engines, or even individual parts that are sufficient to build engines and provide spares for these.

And here's the result going up the hill at this years Goodwood FOS:


It's limited to "just" 500 hp and 9000 rpm. The full on race engine did 13000 rpm and more than 900 hp.
