A Carbon-Tub 911 that ISN'T a Porsche —The Carmudgeon Show with Cammisa and Derek from ISSIMI Ep. 67
Manage episode 340916783 series 3340893
On today’s episode, Jason and Derek discuss the YouTube algorithm and how the mere suggestion of the death of gasoline performance cars can send traditional automotive enthusiasts to grab their pitchforks and smash the dislike button. Surely, it’s hard to imagine a world where we’ll say goodbye to the ICE-powered, character-filled machines we have known and loved since the beginning of the car’s existence. But will we ever celebrate what we’re losing and look forward to what we’re gaining? Only time will tell.
On the other end of the ICE car spectrum, Jason and Derek share their mutually terrifying experiences being driven in the new Chimera EVO37- a completely resto-modded Lancia 037-inspired creation with a substantially larger power-to-weight ratio than a Ferrari F40.
Derek and Jason also get a go in the RUF CTR, a similar concoction of old and new 911 that ultimately feels like something entirely different than any 911 that came before it. This begs the question- do restomodded cars retain any of their original seat-of-the-pants identity once modified? Or do they build an entirely new identity separate from what they started from?
