PostHeaderIcon Porsche Purists Under Siege Again As Tuning Shop Crams Hemi V-8 In a 911

Here we go again, straying further and further from God’s way. This time, the “sinner” is a yet-to-be-completed creation by a French tuning company called Danton Arts Kustoms based in Vanosc, France. While the guys there are currently working on many wacky projects, the one that caught our eye is an ultra-modified Hemi-powered Porker based on a slashed 997 chassis that is sure to send shivers down the spines of Porsche fans young and old.

I’m not a bona fide tuning fan. While I did enjoy the first few Fast & Furious movies in my youth and thought, just like almost anybody in the early noughties, that flamboyant paint schemes and insane body kits that don’t actually help the car go faster are the business, I’ve never been an advocate of tuning as a whole. Nowadays, I enjoy stuff like Canepa’s 959 that offers modern-day supercar performance while retaining all the visual elements of the original 959, but I also turn my head in a hurry when I see stuff like this much newer Porsche that’s being turned into a front-engined muscle car. To some people, it may seem like this 997.I Carrera 4S Cabriolet is being tormented and is dying a slow death under the weight of that hefty Hemi V-8 but, actually, I’m of the opinion that it’s about to rebirth and, if nothing else, it’ll rival the Half11.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: K5 Chevy Blazer Restomod by RingBrothers

We don’t usually feature tuner vehicles in our wallpaper of the day series. In fact, we’ve been kind of lazy with our wallpaper of the day series, haven’t we? Well, either way, that’s without consequence at this point. The point is that today, we’re featuring a tuner car or, to be more specific, a restomod. It’s a restomod by none other than RingBrothers, and it’s the best off-road restomod that we’ve ever laid eyes on. It looks like a stock K5 Blazer from a distance, but once you get up close, you’ll see the RingBrothers put in some serious work here. It has custom running boards and side panels, and it has even been lifted by an entire inch to make room for the 17-inch wheels. The interior is wrapped in a subtle leather and under the hood sits a GM-sourced, LS3 crate engine that’s good for 430 ponies. In the end, this thing is downright beautiful, and it reminds us of what SUVs used to be. If you want to know more about the RingBrothers K5 restomod, check out our full review. Otherwise, look down to grab our favorite wallpaper or browse through a rather generous selection that are all available for free download.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Wide-Body

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon represents the pinnacle of muscle car madness. It’s the world’s most powerful factory-produced V-8 powered car with 840 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque. It’s faster to 60 mph than the Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari, and McLaren P1. It’s also limited to just 3,300 units in North America so getting your hands on one is going to be tough. Don’t be too bummed, though. Just because the Challenger Demon is a little out of your reach, that doesn’t mean you can’t get a Challenger that looks, well, a little bit like it. Dodge is here for you, gentlemen, with a new wide body kit for the Challenger SRT Hellcat that channels some of that demented Demon spirit into a muscle car that’s no stranger to ungodly power.

The new Demon-inspired body kit provides the kind of visual enhancement that helps bring out a little bit of the Hellcat’s demonic side. The wider fenders, in particular, are immediately noticeable, as is the larger-than-usual set of tires that can now be fitted into the Challenger Hellcat thanks to the extra space provided by the fenders. But the kit as a whole is more than just improving bits and pieces of the Hellcat’s own aesthetic look. Dodge even says that the kit is as much about creating room for the Hellcat to improve its own performance credentials as it is about giving it a more menacing visual appearance. Whatever it did, it’s clear that Dodge has something special in store for Challenger Hellcat owners with this new wide-body kit.

PostHeaderIcon Make Sure You Abide By Dodge’s Rules Before You Buy A Challenger SRT Demon

Suppose you already have a reservation for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and you’re just waiting for that precious call from your local Dodge dealer. It’s hard not to get excited about getting your hands on one of the most anticipated muscle cars to be released in recent history. Exciting times, isn’t it? Well, before you get a little too excited about the possibilities, Dodge is dousing that excitement with a three-page Demon Disclosure Form that you’ll have to abide by before you can bring your Challenger Demons home.

The document, acquired by Jalopnik, is essentially a “terms and conditions” waiver that Dodge wants every Challenger Demon buyer to sign, effectively waiving their rights to sue in the event they don’t follow any of the conditions laid out by the automaker. Among the important points that Dodge indicated in the form pertains to passenger seats. Specifically, the form says that “if the vehicle is not factory equipped with a passenger seat, customer shall never attempt to install a passenger seat because the passenger will not be properly protected.” Another important reminder included in the form is a warning for owners never to use “any “Track-Use” features, functions, equipment or parts on public roads or any other prohibited area.”There are a lot more conditions laid out in the form, and almost all of which were put in to lay out the simple fact that the Challenger SRT is effectively a street-legal drag car and owners should use it with utmost care and caution.

PostHeaderIcon The 5 Most Important Cars in the Evolution of the Hot-Rod

The world today is full of all kinds of incredible hot rods. Open the pages of any magazine, and you’ll see everything from low-buck, stripped-down street thrashers that specialize in straight-line acceleration, to mega-dollar, high-tech dyno queens set for glory on the autocross. You might see a brand-new fuel injected Camaro side-by-side with a primer-gray Chevy Nova, or a chromed-out rail job parked next to a monochrome musclecar. On the surface, these vehicles seem to share very little in common, other than the fact that they’re all hot rods.

This hobby has evolved quite a lot over the years; it’s split and schism’d enough times to have a real family tree, with each modern hot rod having a distinct genealogy of its own, True, some of the branches of the family tree wound up pretty short. But other progenitors went on to sire long and proud family lines.

Here’s my list of the most important hot rods of all time; the ones that changed history, created new forks on the family tree, and left a bit of their DNA behind in all that would follow.

PostHeaderIcon Jay Leno Reviews 1941 Willys Coupe: Video

The story of the car in this video is a familiar one, but the sort of thing that gearheads always find heartwarming. A man with a serious love of hot rods and drag racing built a 1941 drag machine, which was passed down to his daughter when he died. The daughter shares this love of cars and still drives the car today. The car is as classic hot-rod as they get, and the story is all you would normally need as a reason to talk about it. But after the first couple of minutes of the video, we find out that there is a bit more to it.

The new owner of this car is none other than Lynsi Snyder, the president and majority shareholder of In-N-Out Burger, a California-based chain which has always been as closely identified with car culture as a burger chain can be. And Lynsi doesn’t just own and drive this hot rod, she has a couple of her own drag cars that she uses to compete in NHRA events. She’s what we’d have called a “gentleman racer” in what was obviously a different era. Her family’s love of cars seems to have really taken.

This video is all the more interesting because Lynsi Snyder is known for being media shy, having been the target of two known kidnapping attempts. At 33, she is the youngest female billionaire in America, and most of her time is taken up with racing and running the business anyway. So this was a rare look at the car, and even if the video did end with a flat tire, it was still touching.


PostHeaderIcon American Hot Rodders Smash Guiness World Record For Simultaneous Burnout: Video

Where there are hot rods and drag racers, there are smoky burnouts. It’s an automotive fact of life. And at the annual Hot Rod Power Tour, there are an awful lot of hot rods. So what if they all did burnouts at the same time? Would that set a world record? Is there even a world record for the most smoky burnouts at the same time? And would you want to be downwind of an attempt?

As it turns out, there is such a Guinness record, and it was most recently pegged at a hundred and three simultaneous burnouts at the Summernats in Canberra, Australia. Records are made to be broken, of course, and at this year’s Hot Rod Power Tour an attempt was made. At the third stop of this year’s Power Tour, the Memphis International Raceway, Hot Rod and Continental Tire lined up 110 participants along the dragstrip and went for it.

According to Guinness rules, each burnout has to last at least 30 seconds. Owing to the a couple of busted limited-slip differentials and some organization hiccups, Hot Rod doesn’t know if its attempt will be certified to break the record yet…but it makes for some pretty impressive (if not environmentally friendly) images. Gas mask, anyone?
