Home Garage Build

2007 Porsche Cayman S with LS3 Engine Swap

This current home garage build-in-progress involves what most would consider to be a sacrilegious engine swap, but before casting any judgement on the project it should be noted that the owner of this 2007 Porsche Cayman S, Joshua Murray, bought the car with a blown engine. A new 6.2 liter GM LS3 crate engine is in the process of being fitted to the standard factory Porsche transmission with use of a Kennedy LS adapter mount and a lot of custom fabrication. Future plans include a Quaife sequential transmission for full throttle clutchless up shifts, as well as the installation of a dry sump oil system. With what started last November is left most currently updated just last week with a post test fitting the rear swaybar and undertray support, while the engine is already in the process of being made to fit. It will be interesting to see this monster hybrid when it is completed, but in the mean time check out the following page for build pictures and a short time lapse video of the impressive project so far. “After test fitting the LS3 a dozen times I decided the ‘normal’ install position that most folks use is just not that great.” […]

1973 Brumos Porsche 911 S Current Restoration/Build Thread

There’s a really interesting 1973 Porsche 911 S home garage build thread currently unfolding on PellicanParts.com, which can be found linked on the following page. For those of you who want to be caught up to date with the Cliff Notes version first, all you got to do is continue reading here for the highlights before jumping in. The project starts with a long hood which was originally built by Florida based championship race winning Brumos Porsche as their own iteration of a factory lightweight RS or Clubsport package car. It includes an actual genuine “retired” IROC 3.0 RSR engine that was first installed back in ’74, the crown jewel of this project. Since it is being rebuilt as a street car still, forum member/car owner “chriskimmelshue” is keeping it’s electric sunroof and windows, heat and carpet and is building it exactly to his spec, regardless of others are suggesting he does with the rare race engine or original Brumos history, and here’s how it is going down… First things first, the car gets stripped down and media blasted only to reveal the disaster of a weld job of it’s 9″ and 11″ flares that it previously received at some […]

VIDEO: One Car Do It All

1cartodoitall

Here is a great video about one man’s quest to have one car that can do it all: one that he can pack up and drive to the track, race and then drive home in, and enjoy for recreational weekend driving. We often ask ourselves what the ultimate car would be that could achieve the same goals, and frequently come up with an answer which is freakishly close to what Jack Olsen has done here. In this case the car is “Black Beauty”, a ’72 Porsche 911 built up with RSR bodywork, a ’95 993 engine and a host of other go fast goodies picked from other model years. We don’t want to give away any more, so we hope you enjoy the video as much as we did…

1965/66 Porsche 912 Restoration

This 1965/1966 Porsche 912 (VIN #451924) was the subject of a 3 1/2 year nut and bolt restoration by it’s owner, “DarrylD”. He created the dedicated website (linked at the bottom of this page) to document each step of the renovation, along with coinciding detailed text and photographs to go along with each step of the process. It didn’t come as any surprise to find out that DarrylD was an engineer because we have always found that they are some of the most diligent and comprehensive people that we have ever personally met. Now retired, he has since found that restoring cars is very rewarding and therapeutic work for himself. He points out that all of the software that he had created in his past professional career is now obsolete or deleted, whereas all the cars he has restored are still around and will be for many more years. Interesting stuff that really puts his life’s work into perspective. We often find that a bit of professional background information about a car owner and restorer is as important information about their motivation and decision making as it is about actually learning about the car itself. It certainly explained why this particular 912 was given such a tasteful and precise renovation back to it’s stock configuration rather […]

Reader Submission: Blank Slate 911- A 911 built in a downtown LA loft complex parking lot

The brutish Porsche 911 pictured above is a strictly business build brought to us by 2 brothers via Reader Submission. We’ll let them tell you the full story about it themselves, which is accompanied by an overload of tasty photos. It was too difficult to choose which ones to post and which not to, so we included all of them. All we had to do is take one look at those Hoosiers mounted on deep dish rims and we knew we had a winner. Check it out for yourself on the following page… Blank Slate 911 A 911 built in a downtown LA loft complex parking lot The Geniuses: Nikita Bridan Iliya Bridan The Location: 1000 S. Hope ST Los Angeles, CA Beginning Living in a downtown loft, with no personal garage space would seem to make you think that maybe building your own 911 is not really possible. However one day we decided that it actually would be a fantastic idea. We would just work on the car late at night when no one was down in the underground parking structure. This seemed like a brilliant idea. Very soon it would lead to some very interesting and extremely long nights. The […]
