A tale of two 911s

911s

Do you remember when I made the ‘people who get it‘ post tag? I created it so I could tag the best quality builds, the one’s that you never want to end, the ones that make you go back to the beginning once you reach the last page. Kris is a perpetual offender of such […]

BUILT from eBay [video build x4]

builtbyebay

So, I’ve become a bit of a YouTube junky lately. My almost nightly ritual consists of plonking myself down on the couch with a hot coffee, firing up the iPad, plugging in my over-ear headphones, and catching up on all of my favourite subscriptions. Some of those include /DRIVE, HoonTV, Jay Leno’s Garage, Marchettino, Mighty […]

Porsche ’83 targa to 993 RSR coupe

83-993-RSR

When I was a kid, Porsches were only owned by doctors or business men, or plastered on bedroom walls of kids like me. Now it’s more than obvious that the once unreachable German exotics are firmly in the grasps of people like you and I who like to tear things apart and put them back […]

1969 Porsche 911 GT3 Restomod

PorscheRestoMod

When multiple people submit the same build to you, it’s probably time to get it up on the site. This build is only a few pages long, but what it lacks in length it makes up for with content. While the whole world seems to be on an air-cooled Porsche buzz, this particular long-nose receives […]

Bagged Porsche Dually

Porsche Dually

Not the kind of title you’d see every day, right? After overwhelming feedback on the Facebook page, I bring you this very unique piece of machinery. What was originally a Porsche 911 is now merely a Stuttgart shell sitting atop a Chevy pickup dually chassis, with a 454 V8 and 4-speed, riding on air. The build […]

Another WRX powered Porsche 914?

20

You might recall in July of last year I featured a tube framed Porsche 914 with a WRX engine transplant. While title of this post may have you thinking this is a similar build, they’re actually quite different. This particular car starts out as an already competent Auto-X car, with the owner, Britain, wanting to […]

5 cylinder Audi powered Porsche 996

Porsche’s seem to be blowing up the internet lately. Between RWB, Singer, and most recently Magnus Walker, there’s been a constant stream Porkas on every auto blog out there for the past few years now. But hey, this is Build Threads, so you know if you see a Porsche here there’s going to be something […]

WRX-powered tube-framed Porsche 914

Tube914

It wasn’t that long ago that I featured another Porsche with a Subaru engine swap, but while the titles may seem similar at first glance, they are two completely different cars. Here we have a Porsche 914 with a Subuaru WRX engine swap, and while that might seem interesting enough on it’s own, this car […]

Official Porsche Restoration Update II

PorscheResto

A few days ago marked exactly 1 year since I posted an update about the Official Porsche Restoration. The factory rebuild of a 1973 911T has now been completed by the Porsche Classic workshop and raffled off to one lucky winner, so check out the finishing touches or re-live the whole build if you so […]

Subaru powered Porsche Boxster

EJ255-Boxster

Following-on from the last build, here’s another Subaru powered build for your reading pleasure. The only difference is this time the turbocharged flat-4 isn’t sitting in the front of another Impreza, it’s in the back of a Porsche Boxster. This Boxster was bought with a blown motor, so the swap was intended from the get-go. […]
