935 DP. Here it is. What do you think? And no, it's not a one-off



Phix
Uh.... a little more info, please? I'm currently looking at it and wondering ... WTF?

You'd have to ask LoudPipe.

And it gets an uncool from me, while being a fast road car and a capable racecar, Porsches of this vintage give me the dry heaves on looks alone. My lust for Porsches completely skipped the 70's and 80's.

Frozen biggrin.gif. Looks hawt, and has speed to match biggrin.gif

While I love the whacky '70s and '80s Turbos, this gets an uncool from me because it's not a factory job...just another aftermarket tuning company spending some rich guy's money to make something ridiculous.

It looks hideous.

Are those giant fog lights really necessary. Uncool.
PBB
Those are the headlights.

Isnt this the same model on which the Moby Dick was based on ?
PBB
Yep, the 935 911 Turbo.

Here's a pic of the Moby Dick (935-78): http://www.jacky-ickx-fan.net/Wallpapers/p...5_Moby-Dick.jpg

Wow, how very craptastic.

sounds dangerous. kind of looks dangerous too.
Boxster17
As much as I love Porsche's, can't say I really care for this one much.
Espen
I was hoping for a 935 "Moby Dick" and not a kit. Looks like a serious build though, so it's probably just as fast as the faintly rediculously fast orginal.
z0ne
I think it's deserving of just a "Cool" because of it's power. It may not be a looker, but, it makes up for it with it's performance.
imisplacedmine
I can't call a car cool, when it looks like it would make a great wood sander.
BurningSky
That sure is one ugly front bumper. Sounds wonderously fast though. I'll go with cool.

Headlights in the place of fog lights?! Those wacky germans.
DZ302
that's ugly as hell, but light and fast as hell...also unsafe as hell i'm sure...which makes it frozen for me. and it's probably called DP because you get fucked in both holes if you wreck
stig259
its too much for what it is. uncool. sad.gif
trail_boss2
Cool, its ugly as shit but it looks to be so fast that its dangerous and I like that in a car.
Phix
Stripped out race car with Porsche foundations and road legal ta boot?

Frozen for me.
PAULIE_D
Any car with the term "DP" in it's name gets a cool vote from me.
