Porsche 928 T — as in “Turbine”

I was looking for whichever gen of Porsche the new 370z reminds me of from the side and I came across this. Had to post it, hope its not a repost. Sounds sick; would love to see it at top speed. Follow the link for pics.

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.
