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.

California cruisin’: from the sublime to the oddball

Aug 22 2014 8:38pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Just back from an amazing trip for “Car Week” to the Carmel area, where I took in a few auctions, the Vintage Races at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway, the Consorso Italiano, the Concorso d’LeMons and, of course, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The Concours d’LeMons show is a counterpoint to the ultra- priced cars with a selection of oddballs and cars not part of the mainstream collector hobby, or maybe v ...

The car that gets the girl: beware false upfront advertising

Aug 22 2014 6:30pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

She was beautiful up there on the stage at Harrison Trimble High School in Moncton, New Brunswick, in 1967. Her silky flaxen hair delicately swayed as she finessed the bow over the strings of the first cello in the Saint John High School orchestra that was visiting our school. When she looked toward my seat in the third row of the auditorium, she played only for me. I was certain of that. When the concert was over, I bolted from the school past the Saint Joh ...

On The Road: Speeding legally

Aug 22 2014 12:03pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

CALGARY — Jim Webster is dedicated to open road racing. In fact, he’ll practice in his daily driver – at legal road speeds – on the Trans Canada Highway between Calgary and Canmore. Sanctioned open road racing events are held on closed public highways, most often in the Southwestern U.S. In an open road race, drivers and navigators compete to maintain an average speed over a measured course. For example, speed classes range from 130 to 240 km/h, and the roads v ...

I, for one, am proud of every single owner of a great, unique or exotic car who drives them regularly. These cars are special, and they get people interested in automobiles. It is also a special experience to see something so cool and rare in the car world go rolling down the street. Sadly, as there are other cars on the road, there can be damage to these nearly priceless pieces of automotive history. Ca ...

You may know the Nardò Ring as the 7.8-mile asphalt track where the world’s automakers take their top-speed vacations. A traffic-free circular autobahn in the heel of Italy’s boot, the Porsche-owned test track is banked such that you can take your hands off any car’s steering wheel at 149 mph in the outer lane. It’s one of the few places on the planet where Lamborghini’s new 10-cylinder wedge, the ...

James Garner: Famous for acting but a racer at heart

Aug 22 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

James Scott Bumgarner died on July 19 of this year, just three months after celebrating his 86th birthday. The news was not entirely unexpected by those in his inner circle, but what was perhaps surprising were the ripples of grief that spread throughout the automotive community. “He was one of us,” the headlines read, and the forums were filled with those who had met Garner and were saddened at the lo ...
