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.” […]

Porsche 997.2 W.C. GT3RS Build by GMG Racing

This Porsche 997.2 GT3 RS has got the full GMG World Challenge street/track car make-over. For those of you who are unaware of who GMG Racing is, they are currently what factory Porsche racing is now as to what ANDIAL was to Porsche racing back in the 70’s and 80’s  The two shops even happen to reside next to each other in Santa Ana, California. Now, if you are unaware of who ANDIAL is, then it’s quite possible that you are just not a Porsche guy. Fair enough. Let’s just say that Porsche has recently bought ANDIAL as their very own AMG, or M division, just to give you a smidgen of an idea. GMG races in the World Challenge series, which is North America’s premier sprint racing series with cars competing from such manufacturers as Porsche, Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Cadillac, Ford, Aston Martin, Volvo, Corvette, Mercedes, plus more. GMG has been successfully campaigning Porsche GT3 Cup cars in this series for several years now and even captured the 2010 Manufacturers Championship title for Porsche. Who then better to modify your GT3 street car for the track than a shop that wins races with them?  Enough said for now, let’s just take a moment for a break and let the pictures speak for themselves […]

2002 Porsche 996 GT2 “RSR” by 911Design

This 2002 Porsche 996 GT2 “RSR” is the subject of an on-going, 4 year active project by 911Design in an effort to build one of the most extreme street/track 911 GT2’s, possibly of all time. The custom fabrication craftsmanship and attention to detail in the suspension, engine and brakes, and all of it’s associated hardware is just absolute art. No posing here. In it’s final iteration, the 3.8 Twin Turbo engine was dynoed at 843 rwhp at 1.1 bar while running 100 octane race fuel. The transmission of choice to handle all of that power was a sequential gearbox from Cartonics in Germany, with steel synchros and revised ratios. Since engine rebuilds are not cheap at an estimated $40k-$50k, the redline was set to “only” 8600 rpm. Loren Beggs, of 911 Design (www.nine11design.com) in Los Angeles, California and suspension guru Cary Eisenlohr of ERP are legends in the Porsche 911 race car world who can be given credit for creating this particular beast for car owner and 6speenonline.com member “1badGT2”. Over the course of approximately 4 years, the discussion of this monster has grown to 55 pages, and counting. With a street car build as wild as this it can be expected to ask why he […]

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 […]

2012 Porsche RSR Getting Painted in Sponsor’s Falken Tire Scheme

This 2012 Porsche GT3 RSR was sponsored by Falken Tires for the American Le Mans Series and for today’s feature it is seen here getting painted in their team colors. For us, race cars (and especially street cars) look their best with a very clean factory look before they have been wrapped with busy liveries or slapped with sponsorship stickers. Take a walk with us on the following page as we follow this race car through it’s unfortunate but necessary paint process… We were surprised to find out that the team was actually painting the car, rather than wrapping it, which we had the impression was the much more popular choice these days. The whole process is very time consuming. In fact, just taping the car during preparation was a 4 hour process. Falken dictates the paint scheme using Lamborghini Blue Nova and PPG Summer Green.We can imagine how the painter must cringe every time he watches the race car make contact even the slightest bit with anything else. As soon as we build up a large enough collection of photos, we are going to post a feature that showcases as many race cars without sponsorship liveries as possible, because although this […]
