It really is very intriguing to put yourself in the place and at the moment in which someone in the United States decides build a trike with your own resources. It is always striking to imagine the process of designing and creating such a vehicle, especially if at some point the curiosity of engineering has been felt.
And it is also very intriguing to know what the creator of this contraption had in mind when choosing the motor that would move it. We don't know exactly what went through his head, but we do know that this trike powered by the engine of a Porsche 928 from 1986 is one of the strangest creatures that can be seen on a road.

What for some is a sacrilege, for others may be a work of art. Choosing the side is up to each one, but it must be recognized that this trike, whose artisanal manufacture led him more than five years to its creator, it cannot leave anyone indifferent, for whatever reason.
In particular, if we take into account that putting a car engine into a motorcycle “feint” is quite a challenge and that it is such a large engine and it is already bordering on madness. Although we must also recognize that driving a vehicle of these characteristics should not be boring at all, although the benefits of the engine can hardly be squeezed out.
And it is that the heart of this creature is none other than the engine that equipped a Porsche 928 from the year 86. Nothing more and nothing less than 296 horses power output from the eight pistons of this huge 5-liter V8 of cubic capacity. In order to squeeze this beast, Porsche engineers put a automatic gearbox There is nothing wrong with making things a little easier.
In any case, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that if you are one of those who liked the idea, you can take it to your garage for the "modest" price of $ 50,000 if you go to Fountain (Colorado) for her. The bad news is that it exists, if you are one of those who did not like that a Porsche engine is used for this.
The Porsche 928, from those powders these muds
Perhaps the Porsche 928 was one of the most maligned German brand models, but its sales success was far from negligible. More than 60,000 units sold Among all its versions, the 928 was one of the oldest Porsche models at least in the United States. Its design was quite groundbreaking at the time, with lines that the followers of the brand were not used to.
Its greatest acceptance came in the American market, for which it had been primarily intended and had been endowed with a luxurious interior that made it a the most expensive Porsche car of its time. It is for this reason that it may be painful for many to see one of their engines embedded in something that they might see as a scrap metal with wheels.
