Front-Engined Porsche 911 Rat Rod Gets Bentley V8 Conversion in France

If you happen to find yourself among those who consider Rauh-Welt Begriff kits are a sacrilege, you'd better look away. And that's because the Porschephile realm now holds contraptions that make RWB cars seem tame. We first talked about this in February last year, when we showed you an air-cooled Porsche 911 that had been chopped into rat rod shape.

The Neunelfer we showed you back then had lost its flat-six for a Big Block V8, but the biggest change came from the relocation of the motor, which was placed in the nose of the vehicle.

Well, we are now back with another contraption of the sort. As hinted back in 2017, the French shop that delivered the said Neunelfer has done it again, delivering what appears to be a 911 Targa (the roof bar might be an aftermarket piece placed on a "regular" 911, though).

As before, the boxer motor of the Porscha is gone, with the front section of the car now accommodating a V8. This time around, though, the powerplant is a Bentley V8 with a hefty turbo (British purists now have a reason to cringe). Speaking of which, the cold air intake that feeds the turbocharger has replaced one of the headlights.

The chopping and fabrication job was handled by French specialist Danton Arts Kustoms, who is run by Alexandre Danton - you can see the aficionado behind the wheel of his creature in the first piece of footage below.

As for the rest of the car, we're not exactly sure what is more disturbing - it could be the cabin of the car, which looks a bit like the interior of a medieval armor or the dark hole that is now the rear engine compartment of the vehicle.

Now, you should know that the said metal wielder doesn't just work on Porches. In fact, we'll return with another one of his projects soon - we're referring to a four-wheeled toy that comes from Sant'Agata Bolognese.

Update:Here's the Lamborghini Espada rat rod built by the French shop.

P.S.: Not even RWB Porsches are safe these days, as, for instance, the SEMA show has brought us one that has been converted to electric power with the help of Tesla hardware.
