The custom restomod Porsche 911 scene is getting a bit more crowded. With the popularity of Singer Porsches, competition in this field was bound to happen. This is a 993 Porsche 911 restored by Kaege from Germany done up to their own specifications. Unlike the Singer, the Kaege version makes do with the original 296hp 3.6L engine but the entire weight of the car has been reduced significantly due to widespread use of carbon fiber. The car now weighs 2635 lbs due to the carbon fiber body panels, as well as the engine bay. Other touches include revised interior, custom wheels that look like the original Fuchs, and abundant use of new technology like LED headlights,seats, suspension, and so many more minor details.
I've been a fan of Yasid's work for a while now and I think he deserves a lot more attention. This artist works out of London making photoshops and car designs that look just otherworldly. There is a certain Mad Max feel to them with all the exposed engine bits, wheel flares, and scoops and wings. It's all just so post-apocalyptic. I believe he does this for video game concepts as well as just to indulge in his own hobbies. He's certainly quiet talented. Continue reading below for a sample of just SOME of his work.

Some journalists have already gotten their special invitations from Mazda with a cryptic message that reads "help us blow the lid off at the New York Auto Show". Does this mean what we all hope it means? That they'll be showing off a Power Retractable Hard Top ND Miata? I guess we'll have to wait until the New York Auto Show starts on Mar. 25th
Bnetley's new SUV the Bentayga showed up at Cars&Coffee in Austin, TX this weekend. The new Bentley is no cheap affair either and is priced at $231K MSRP. The optional Breitling tourbillion clock is an addition $160K option. Too bad the looks of the car is so conservative.
RMSoutheby's somehow got their hands on the ONLY street legal 911 GT1 Evolution and is putting it up for auction. And this isn't just a homologation special either. Someone managed to turn this actual former race car into a fully street legal ride. This car in particular has even won 13 out of 31 races it was in. The auction is set for May 14, 2016 with the car expected to sell between $3 Million and $3.3 Million. Unfortunately high resolution wallpapers are not available at this time.
