There are more than a few great automotive rivalries. One of them is the Chevrolet Corvette and Porsche 911. So, what happens when you take LS power and plop it into the rear of a 1985 Porsche 911? One of the best cross-bred incarnations ever.
The vehicle is for sale by Motoexotica Classic Cars and is listed eBay at $9,100 currently. The reserve is hidden from buyers, but 21 people have bid on this Frankenstein of a Porsche. The car retains the original five-speed manual transmission, but boasts upgraded renegade dual braking system and Weber carburetor conversion. A 0-60 time is estimate in the four second range. We can only imagine how much fun it would be to kick this 911 around a few corners.
In terms of the aforementioned rivalry, look at the positives. You get classic Porsche engineering along with the slick original five-speed, and the power from a 5.7-liter Small Block V8. We think it will make for quite the conversation piece when you pop the rear open to expose the motor. That is, if a crowd doesn’t gather when they hear it pull in with a mismatching exhaust note from what they come to expect.
