Replica Porsche 356 uses BMW power

Out of all of the Porsches ever to roll out of Germany, my favorite is the classic Porsche 356. I love the lines of the car and of always thought it would be really cool to own one. The problem is those cars are not only rare, they are incredibly expensive. A company named PGO has a name for building replica sports cars based on the Porsche 356.

The French company has unveiled its latest version called the 2013 PGO Cervennes and it has all the style of the Porsche 356 in a modern body. The 2013 model is only mildly updated on the outside, but it's significantly different on the on the inside. The car is now powered by a turbocharged direct injected 1.6-liter BMW four-cylinder engine.

That engine delivers 181 hp and 177 pound feet of torque. That doesn't sound like a lot of power, but the car weighs only a bit over 2200 pounds. Top speed is expected to be about 140 mph and the transmission is a six-speed manual. Pricing and availability for the car are unknown.

Front-facing child seats give us a new perspective on safety

Oct 22 2014 8:18am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

A little while ago, I decided to change my daughter’s outlook on life. Instead of looking where we had been, she would now see where we were going. She had grown up enough. It was time. I turned her car seat around. So what, big deal, ya wanna medal or something? Well, I feel like it was rather a big deal actually. Not the actual physical act of strapping her La-Z-Boy-sized forward-facing seat into the car – although o ...

Porsche 919 Steering Wheel Is More Complicated Than Yours

Oct 22 2014 1:30am CDT | Source: Motor Authority

The steering wheel in your basic race car is just that; it's a simple, lightweight, possibly suede-covered instrument used to tell the front wheels of the vehicle where to go. As you advance up the race car ladder, however, a steering wheel begins to be much more than a simple directional tool. It will start to become covered in buttons, swit ...
