This is the new GRIPPY’S*GARAGE project. There isn’t a whole lot to be done other than things that I just feel like doing to make it cooler, but this is definitely an awesome ride. It’s a 1976 Porsche 911s “narrowbody” with a 1986 3.2 liter swap. It’s a great combo with the lightweight body of the older Porsche 911 with a newer 911 big flat 6. It runs like a champ and pull strong on the highway. I am excited to get it dropped down with some Rcomp tires and Bilsteins.
I love the simplicity of this 911. It’s similar to my style of doing things, especially with cars. I like how he still kept it very original in its styling, but he lightened the car a huge amount to bring out an even better driving experience. I can only hope to own one some day 😉
Mark Arcenal repainted his green RWB Pandora One for a cleaner and more streetable gloss black. I love the all black look on SSR wheels. He told me the green was extremely hard to get by with around town. He’s been driving the blue 993 lately because it is a street version RWB car. This will allow him to take the 964 out more often and enjoy the 500awhp+ that it has whenever he wants.
This awesome Porsche was just stolen in Japan. I hope it gets returned soon. I want to see more videos of it drifting and gripping the track!
I just love old school Porsche’s with ducktails.
I was just chatting with a friend the other day how crazy it would be to see a RWB Porsche just out and about on the highway or normal road. It would stand out like a sore thumb no doubt. Well my dream came true today. I turned on to the freeway and noticed a very white and wide Porsche up ahead. Then I noticed the red wheels and the hoonigan sticker. I knew for sure it was a RWB USA car. I sped up in my STI and right when I caught up with him we passed a Highway patrol car stopped in hiding. Luckily we were able to quickly bring speeds back down to 55. I cruised by him and snapped a pic and gave him a big thumbs up with a smile on my face. These cars are amazing. I’ve seen Mark’s Green RWB in person, and to see one on the streets now is just awesome!
I was hoping to make it to SEMA this year, but there’s been too much going on in LA lately. Mark Arcenal told me his RWB Porsche would be swinging by his illest store in LA before heading home to SF today. I immediately got on my way over there. This is a must see car in person. The only way I can describe it is that it seems like your looking at something from a movie or videogame. It seems unreal. This car is literally flawless. Mark tells me he will be doing a shakedown run at the track next weekend. The car is only pushing 6psi right now and makes nearly 400whp (awd). It will be pushing 15psi very soon. Expect big things for this car!
