I got curious, so I began researching other Porsche enthusiast's experimentation with this alternative power that Ferdinand Porsche was once asked to develop by Jacob Lohner at the age of 18; and that was 115 years ago.
and when I saw that 944 spin it's wheels in a fury of white smoke and take off in an eerily quiet but brisk manner down the tarmac? I was very impressed; but not as impressed by another whale-tailed 911 making a claimed 400 horsepower that the dyno verified having nearly 50 less...still impressive. what caused the rise at the front of the trousers, though, was a speed of nearly 170mph—governed.
clearly, I've some catching up to do.
