Porsche with a 427 LS7 motor!!!

For all you hybrid fans I stumbled across this vid of an AWESOME Porsche on another forum today

I wish I could find a video of this car with the hammer pinned down on the interwebz but I guess they have yet to surface

I bet the Germans are just watching this video and saying, "American rednecks". lol.

The newer Porsches probably couldn't take this type of conversion without losing their back seat. I don't think there's that type of room anymore.

My internet is rather slow, but is this 427 in the rear? That just sounds like a terrible idea. All I can imagine is crashing into a tree backwards at 100+ mph and death.

However, the fabrication skills to get it in there are impressive.

This probably handles better than stock since the engine is on top of the rear axles. The Porsche 911 factory design was pretty easy to lose control of to begin with because the engine was behind the rear axle. I test drove a 997 Carrera and could feel the back end creeping out on me in places my Boxster wouldn't. Not a very comfortable feeling when test driving a $100k car...

I'd love to know the front to rear weight distribution with this set up. It looks like a beast.

Those knuckle dragging, mouth breathing, neanderthal, rednecks sure do know how to make fast cars.........

But fast isn't always reliable. That's why the Italian and German cars are considered 'better' even though that isn't necessarily true either.

i would think it probably didn't change much. this was a turbo car from the factory, and while the did put a V8 in the car, is an aluminum block and heads engine. a LS engine weighs a touch over 400 lbs, which may even be less than the factory engine + turbos.

Plus, as its been pointed out, the engine is over the rear axle, instead of behind it.

Yeah, I'd say it's probably A LOT cheaper. A replacement engine for my Boxster is $17k.
