Yep, you read the heading right — American-based Bisimoto Engineering are building a V6 Hyundai-powered 1977 Porsche 911. Why would someone do such a thing, you ask? Well, when we mentioned Bisimoto, you probably could’ve guessed. As of late, Bisimoto Engineering are known for building mental Porsches, but they are better known in tuning circles for their handiwork with Hondas. They’ve built a 800hp single-cam D16-powered Honda Civic Shuttle, a 1000-plus horsepower Honda Odyssey, and an array of naturally aspirated builds. The 911 Porsche will be built for the 2017 SEMA Show, and, according to the Bisimoto team, will be one of their most insane builds to date. Hard to believe when you’ve seen their previous projects! If you’re a Porsche purist though, you’re probably not going to like it … 

René Vermeer

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
