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.

Car Review: 2015 Ford Mustang

Sep 19 2014 9:20pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. — Who among us has not been touched in some way by the Ford Mustang? How many children, teens or adults vowed to own one after falling for its shape and its simple down-to-earth appeal? How many people tried to convince their spouses the Mustang was an ideal family car? How, after 50 years in the marketplace, can one car so dominate our dreams of driving fast, wild and free? Blasting through the twisty canyons ...

Going, Going . . . Lotus to Drop Evora From U.S. Market

Sep 19 2014 2:47pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Following on from Lotus’s announcement of impending job losses, some more bad news for the brand’s dwindling band of followers in the States: We’ve learned that the company’s last street-legal model, the Evora, is going to be withdrawn from sale in the U.S. The news probably doesn’t come as a huge surprise. The 2014 Evora happened only because the company got a 12-month exemption on the federal requirement to ...

Sep 19 2014 11:54am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, Crossover, Porsche, Luxury "Well this is stupid." On the surface, that was our reaction to this video, as well. Why would you compare the hottest Porsche Cayman with a crossover of any kind, even if it is the 400-horsepower Macan Turbo? We're guessing because it'd be bloody good fun, as evidenced Auto Express's latest track battle. To be ...
