It doesn't get much simpler than this. Turbine-powered cars are, as a rule, extremely cool. So too are all vintages of the Porsche 928. Therefore, a turbine-powered Porsche 928 is positively... Arctic. Owning this might well cause snowfall in your garage, and you can actually find out, because this divinely-inspired combination is up for grabs on eBay. Better still, the bid at the time of this writing this is a little over six-thousand bucks. I paid more than triple that for each of the last two used cars I've bought, neither of which is a Porsche 928, and neither of which has a Boeing 502-6 turboshaft engine underhood. Sure, it's not for everyone, and the video after the jump suggests that your neighbors might not like the noise so much, but come on. It's a turbine 928. This rules on several levels. Don't miss the hilarious item description and seller Q&A, either. Apparently, this thing use to be new. Neff should buy it to replace his Alero.

      This is why I compulsively type in autoblog.com whenever I find myself at a keyboard with a browser.

      Finding a kerosene filling station might be an issue, and it's only 160hp, but at least that sound will attract all forms of law enforcement :)

      Thats marginally insane...

      The owner seems a touch daft too, so I suppose it all makes sense.

      That is the coolest thing, as much as I love Porsche engines, I love seeing an old Porsche's with an engine swap. I remember I saw a 96' 911 with a supercharged Chevy 454 somehow shoehorned into the back. I know that some of you are going to cringe at the sound of that, but you gotta admire engineering when its done. Porsche's are just great for this as their small size, and usually mellow sounding 6 banger, allows you to scare the hell out of people when you fire up some big block, pushing out 650hp, through glass packs... haha... it is impressive.

      Well the exhaust through the hood solves the melting bumper problem. Probably not too good for visability though. You'll get one pretty warped view staring through exhaust gasses.

      Haha, imagine calling AAA if you break down.

      That hole in the hood looks just like The Iron Man's. Yowch! Somebody stick something in there!
