Beautiful engine and 'plumbing' but I can't help but think that this is the least beautiful angle for the car. Looks like it has forgotten it's underpants and is baring it's private parts to the world.

Looks more like a 48 Bentley Mark VI

This is more what comes to my mind with a 48 Lincoln.



They're both nice.

Think the 935 is a pure race car never for the road. Could be wrong as usual though.

yeah....it's a 911 turbo for the track....not the road. The 930 is the road going version.
sorry I wasn't a bit clearer.

The 935 was a dumbed nown 917 so Porsche could mop up whatever class they put them in. Beasts, look like the 911's but underneath not much else is similar.

My friend builds F1 and GT cars here... last night he said he was bringing home a little something from the shop that is churning out 550 horsepower so he can take me for a spin. He designs all the carbon fibre components for these cars... he used to design bicycle parts.

I am looking forward to the ride and some pictures.

Yesterday I learned the original term for station wagon--->shooting brake. Had to research the term when I got home. I'll buy a '65 Aston Martin DB5 when I win the lottery.

Nice car, but I believe that the term shooting brake was the term in England.

According to stationwagons.com, the original American term was "depot hack" because the vehicles, such as this 1923 Star, were developed to take passengers from train depots. The Star was the earliest production wagon in the U.S., though they existed before, built by coachbuilders. My grandfather drove a 1920 Dodge with a woodie body, similar to the Star's, through large parts of Mexico in 1920 searching for oil.

That makes sense, because an Englishman who works at a local Subaru dealer explained the term to me. We were discussing the auto industry's reluctance to describe a station wagon as just that. Same goes for the term hatchback; they're all five-door whatevers now.

Neat bit of Americana though. Thanks!

Jeremy Clarkson said it cost 30,000 less than an M5 BMW because it is 30,000 time less complicated and would eat the M5's lunch (and everybody else's lunch too)... 415 bhp and a top speed of 175 mph.

Simple, fun, and not subtle in the least.
