Coachbuilt – Paweł Świercz’s 1987 BMW E30 Baur TC2 – Photographed by Piotr Błaszkiewicz

Those quirky “sorta convertible, sorta not” tops. That’s what Baur is largely synonymous with in the classic BMW realm. For fans of classic roundel and normal-sized-kidney sporting BMWs, it’s unlikely that a Baur example hasn’t crossed your path at some point or another, but for many out there, the concept is as foreign as they […]

Ultraviolet – Clemens Janous’s MK1 Volkswagen Scirocco GTi – Photographed by Mike Crawat

In the early 1970s, Volkswagen was well aware that their Karmann Ghia platform was due for a replacement. Having been in production since 1955, its nearly 20-year-long run was well earned but well worn in. As a replacement, the internally-designated “Typ 53” Scirocco coupe was born. Designed by the absolutely legendary Giorgetto Giugiaro, and loosely based on the […]

Order & Progress – Renan Roberto’s Brazilian Chamonix Speedster

Chuck Beck’s name has long been synonymous with the best Porsche replicas on planet Earth. While authentic 356 coupes, speedsters, and 904s are well out-of-reach for the common man, Beck’s namesake has been attached to some of the best recreations money can buy, and for going on nearly 40 years. In 1987, Chuck Beck sought […]

The Road Less Traveled – The Making of LuftAuto’s Safari Porsche 911

Each year, the team at Luftgekuhlt seems to outdo themselves. What once started as a small gathering of friends around a handful of air-cooled Porsches has quickly become one of the events of the year, growing in size and “cool-factor” at an exponential rate. Last year, in the spring of 2016, they threw in an […]

Aesthetics – The 1981 Porsche 924 GTR

There are some that suggest that Porsche’s 924 isn’t worthy of the crest. Luckily for them, this 924 GTR isn’t sporting one. On the other hand, this GTR suggests they couldn’t be more wrong. As Porsche’s counterpart to the 908 for the 1980 24 Hours of Le Mans, the GTR houses a 375-horsepower inline-four. Having finished […]

StanceWorks Wallpaper – Rusty Slammington

Choosing our latest desktop wallpaper was a pretty easy and obvious choice. Keith Ross recently worked his magic with Rusty Slammington in the Long Beach port, and we’re here with a high-res shot for all to enjoy. Simply right-click and save-as for the…

Tic for Tac – Mikael Laukkanen’s Turbocharged E30 Sedan

I’m a sedan guy, through and through. There’s something special about a 4-door “sports” car, or at minimum,  a 4-door touring car with a bit of bite, and if you ask me, it fits the BMW ethos rather well. With that said, there are a handful of cars I’ve always preferred the coupe version of: […]

Legends Never Die – Rusty Slammington – The Unkillable BMW E28

It was nearly two years ago that Rusty was finally unveiled: the cover was pulled back and the latest iteration of a car-turned-legend was shared with the world at SEMA, 2015. However, two years of hard work was poured into the car, only to be followed by nearly two years of radio silence, relegating the […]

From R8 to E28 – Jack Williams’s Bagged & Swapped 1986 BMW 520i

We’re all on an automotive journey of our own, no surprise there. It’s typically over time that we find the right car for us. What can be surprising though, is when the journey of finding the perfect ride takes an abrupt, unexpected turn. For Jack Williams, surprise is an understatement. His M52-swapped 520i is the result of […]

“R Own Take” – The H&R Springs 911 R-inspired Beetle R-Line

There’s a long-running joke – something about how Porsche 911s are just fancy Volkswagen Beetles. I’m sure there are a dozen-and-one variants, and truth be told, I’ve probably said them all in passing. There’s no denying there are vast differences between the two, especially now in 2017; on the other hand, however, there’s no denying just how similar […]
