My dream is a VW T3/Vanagon syncro with a Subaru engine powering the rear wheels and an electric motor driving the front diff. You could have around 600hp in an AWD van
Mine would be a basalt-fiber clone of the Schwimmwagen. Light, electrically insulative and bullet-proof!

Subaru Gears markets a reversed pinion gear for the Subaru 5-speed transaxle.

I've also always liked the idea of a hybrid Baja, the main issue being there's a lot of fabrication to make the front drive train work. Starting with a Porsche 964 could actually prove cheaper And I've always loved the idea of owning a rally prepped Porsche.
Golf/Rabbit struts in a Superbeetle body?

Mine is a multifunction towel and the ability to miss the ground.
