2013 PGO Cervennes Speedster Looks like an Old-School Porsche Speedster

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.

Not Astron! Asterion! Photos Appear of Reported Lamborghini Mega-Hybrid Set for Paris Debut

Sep 29 2014 2:09pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

In the early 1970s, Lamborghini was setting the world on its ear with the futuristic Countach and their Italianate take on the AMC Marlin, the mighty Espada. Mitsubishi, on the other hand, was working hard to integrate twin balance shafts into a modest overhead-cam four-banger. The result of these endeavors? Old man Ferruccio bailed on the company he founded in 1974. The company, though it became an ...

Well, This Sucks: Porsche 918 Spyder Goes Up in Flames at Toronto Gas Station [Video]

Sep 29 2014 12:15pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Well, damn—what we have here is a 918 Spyder that went all GT3. Or NSX. Or Gallardo. Or, well, any supercar, because we’re pretty sure “burns to the ground with a fiery incandescence matched only by its ability to warp faces” is listed among the standard features for anything with more than 475 horsepower. The 918 seen here is allegedly owned by Canadian investor and TV personality Michael Wekerle. It is said to have gone up when overflowing fuel an ...

Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid Meteor Grey Metallic by Porsche Exclusive

Sep 29 2014 4:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

Can we start calling for an investigation on the water Porsche Exclusive designers and engineers are drinking over there in Stuttgart? Are we sure that it’s not spiked with powers that make those who drink it impervious to fatigue? I only ask because Porsche Exclusive has released another personalized creation, this time for the Cayenne S E-Hybrid SUV. I’m kidding about the performance-enhancing water (PEW, as I’d like to call it), because I really am extraor ...
