 Porsche 356 Silver Bullet Hot Rod is truly unique
Porsche 356 Silver Bullet Hot Rod, 654, 22.11.2012

Based on a 914-6 chassis

This 1955 Porsche Silver Bullett Hot Rod is based on a 914-6 chassis and has a mid-mounted RS-spec 3.0-liter 911 engine that produces 279 hp (208 kW).

Built in 1992 by Australian Jeff Dutton, the hot rod's body is based on a 1955 356 Continental Coupe but with a longer wheelbase and a chopped roof. It has Weber carburetors and a five-speed 915 gearbox, along with 17-inch disc wheels and 718 RSK-style side vents, driver's side mirror, transmission and engine access covers. The stopping power comes from the 934-sourced ventilated and drilled discs.

Inside it gets green leather bucket seats and a wood-trimmed steering wheel, while the instrumentation comes from VDO, with some of the dials borrowed from a 911. The side windows and windscreen are made from Plexiglas, just like the porthole that provides a nice view of the engine.

While it doesn't align with my taste, entirely, I certainly respect the craftsmanship and execution. Sorry to hear that a 914/6 had to die for it though! Those are rare, desirable cars in their own right.

it has an industrial "steampunk" look to it. doesnt appeal to all but i think it looks pretty cool, it has the same charm that a rat rod has. i would drive it around just for fun to get those "what the hell?" looks :)

No words to describe how ugly this is, disgrace to the porsche name. If I didn;t know better must have been either a russian builder or someone from south America. Garbage
