VIDEO: The six-wheeled, Porsche 928-amino
Just when you think you've seen all manner of cars turned into trucks, something no one could have predicted pops up: a Porsche 928 with a bed, and three axles.
Harry Thoma says on the video that he had Ferraris, Lamborghinis, etc., but that he wanted something no one could just go out and buy. So he built his Porsche 928-amino. Apparently not once during the two years it took to build this, uh, creation, did anyone put forth enough effort to stop Thoma, even though he says the first cut was rather painful.
An extra axle, and what looks to be diamond plate in the bed added serious weight, so Thoma increased the Porsche's engine from 5.4 to 6.1 liters, which gave the car 40 more horses for a total of 390. He claims the car's performance is therefore retained. The German DOT didn't know if, how or why to certify the car for its roads, so Porsche officials kindly helped get the car an official state blessing.
Thoma says through a translator, "Looking at the final result now, you can see something was accomplished." We sure can't disagree with that.
