1976 Porsche 911

From our friends at Rennlist is a custom ’76 Porsche 911 backed by a Chevy V8, tons of attitude.

As our Team Speed Marketplace currently hosts only our wonderful vendors, we sometimes need to look outside of our box to find what awesome cars are being sold to share with you.

We didn’t have to go far for this one, though. Our friends at Rennlist recently happened upon a 1976 Porsche 911 up for sale in their own marketplace that’ll confuse both Porsche purists and Chevrolet parts counters alike.

This particular 911 no longer has its original flat-six moving the rear BBS wheels. Instead, it has a Chevrolet V8 hidden under the “Marlboro red” whale tail.

The custom 911 received its Chevy V8 and other modifications from Renegade Hybrids of Las Vegas. The result is a 380-horsepower monster anchored to the Porsche’s five-speed manual, and a body with exterior bits from the 964 911.

Since launching her professional writing career nearly a decade ago as a fashion blogger, Cameron Aubernon has written for a handful of online and print publications on a wide variety of subjects, including expat issues, fashion, music, and, of course, the automotive industry. The automotive expert was even the editor-in-chief of a popular online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
