I think they really missed a chance to go dual-cab and wide ranging buyer appeal.

My sincere apologies to all race car, and in particular P car enthusiasts for not posting earlier. However we mourn the loss the great Hans Mezger, one of the greatest race car engine designers, who passed away this past June 2020, age 90.

 

Porsche owes him not only the 911's air-cooled, six-cylinder boxer engine but also the overall construction of the 917 and its twelve-cylinder engine as well as his creation of the TAG Turbo Formula One engine. For more than three decades, Hans Mezger was responsible for Porsche's most successful racing cars and engines.

I think the logo would look better on this M5 ute.

Further to the post above -- This I believe is the last of the "Mezger" engines or those with evolved Mezger DNA .

 

The motor in the 997 normally aspirated GT3 evolved from the first Gen GT3 996 engine in 1999, which was based on his original dry sump designed  Le Man winning 911 GT1.  The 991's have a completely new engine designed from the ground up. 

 

These engines are bullet proof, designed to run at incredible RPM for 24 hours at a time. In the video, he basically warms her up for 2 minutes with some nice revs and downshifts. From 2 minutes you will appreciate (and hear) the precise engineering in these flat six engines. No turbos here!  Wonderful stuff. Enjoy.

The rpms of engines freaks me out. It wasn't until I converted rpm to revs/second that I truly realised what was going on. 6000 rpm (I only reach that occasionally 😁—I like my driver's licence and 6000 in 2nd is lose it territory—is 100 revs/second! 

100 revs every second!

It’s been while since I’ve seen a Lotus 7: kudos to Colin Chapman

I am guessing a ‘65 with the light ‘pods’ open. I love them all from ‘63 till they went all conservative with the front in 1970.  HUGE cars but gee they look good.

One of my all time favourite American cars. Great shape, nice motors, and my Dad always liked Buicks.

I would certainly do away with all the paint decorating though. And as Ooogh says, I much prefer the earlier models.
