Bisimoto Widebody Twin Turbo Porsche 911

This is the full length movie from the Garage Way, featuring the 771hp Bisimoto Twin Turbo 911. The Bisimoto 911 blurs the lines between classic beauty and modern technology by modifying a 1976 wide-body Porsche Carrera. The latest in performance electronics, a custom water cooled twin turbo powerplant, and a 6-speed 997 gearbox were utilized to create the ultimate road race inspired; street monster. The goal of the build was to combine the best 911 elements of the old, with the new. Success was achieved: exploration of the strengths of a unique powerplant, drivetrain and chassis combination.  Bisimoto Engineering is an organization known worldwide for awe-inspiring street, show and race vehicles. With close ties to many OE manufacturers, and no fear of the unknown, Bisimoto is always on the cutting edge of automotive technology. Bisimoto Engineering is located in Ontario, California, United States.

What Are Zingers?

Zingers!, the "hairiest, scariest fistfuls of muscle yet," according to the ads for the line of MPC plastic models introduced in 1971. In the days when wild show cars reigned, legendary promoter Bob Larivee Sr. drew crowds by commissioning full-scale versions of top-selling toys. Perhaps the most well-known is the Red Baron, built in 1:1 scale in 1969 by Chuck Miller of Styline Customs based on the Tom Daniel-designed Monogram model. When Larivee wanted fullsize Zingers!, he called on Styline to build the VW, the van, and the Vettes shown here in these Mike Brenner photo outtakes from a story in the July '71 HOT ROD. The dune buggy was built by show-car builder and drag-racer Steve Tansy. The life-size Zingers used real engines with half-scale bodies, and others on the show circuit (and in the model-car line) included a '57 Chevy and a Super Drag dragster.
