    Porsche 911 Targa ... or is it?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=250146115385

    8.2 liter V8 in a 911.

    Check out the fitted luggage.

    Yeah, love the engine cover.

    Doesn't look like it's got enough tire or brake for that much power.

    Wasn't the 928 enough?

    There wasn't anything wrong with the 928. It's problem was that it wasn't a 911, and the purists avoided it.

    BTW, note that it uses a transmission from an RV.

    Yeah... I know... I know!

    I respect Porsches; just don't like them much.

    Do you know the difference between a Porsche and a porcupine?


    With the Porsche, the prick's on the inside.....!
