This one is already fitted with a water-cooled engine that was used as a replacement for the VW boxer. I just don't remember what's the engine supplier, but IIRC it was an Austin engine.

I gave it extra points for being terribly out of season.

And this level of ingenuity below has to be seen to be appreciated.

As compared with Permalink #88561?

Not a single 911 on the whole page.

One page back — Permalinks #88541-43. I'm going to have to find a spot for those in The Lounge.

Sure. But anyway, I'm still trying to guess what's its powertrain donor. CitroŽn 2CV maybe?

It's about as aero-dirty as you could make an egg.

Fineness ratio sucks, the undercarriage is dirty, the wheels unpanted, ....and then you get to the front. The mirror arms, wipers and headlights disturb the flow; they're no golf-ball dimples. Then the tail falls away too fast (like your average Beetle).


Just A Car Guy: might be real, might be an April 1st
