The Swiss automotive specialty firm Rinspeed may apply American hot rod customization techniques to its latest project, a chopped version of the Porsche Cayenne called (rather imaginatively) the Chopster. The pillars would be reduced by six inches and the rear doors removed to allow for the employment of added safety features needed due to the lowering of the roof. The aggressive look would be complemented with an array of performance enhancements upgrading the intercooler, computer system and turbocharger to increase the Cayenne Turbo's output to 600-hp and 590 lb./ft. of torque. Due to the significant loss of headroom, the Chopster would secure its occupants in place during high speed maneuvers with four racing style bucket seats. Pricing for this short monster, if built, would run over $400,000. Which is a pretty good deal, considering.
