VW Beatle California look - Top Gear
Some Britsh guys and girls took a VW Beatle as a souvenir home after the
victory on Germany who didn't need any car caused of carpet bombing. They
made out sunny cars of them.
Here safe at home they give this severe nasty looking VW a SoCal, a sunny
car look. Now they would be able getting started picking up enthusiastic

Top Gear how to kill a Porsche 911
The Porsche 911 (pronounced as Nine Eleven, German: Neunelfer) is a luxury
2-door sports coupe made by Porsche AG of Stuttgart, Germany. It has a
distinctive design, rear engined and with independent rear suspension, an
evolution of the swing axle on the Porsche 356. The engine was also
air-cooled until the introduction of the Type 996 in 1998. Since its
introduction in autumn 1963, it has undergone continuous development. The
basic concept has remained little changed throughout its evolution.
Throughout its lifetime, the 911 has been modified by private teams and by
the factory itself for racing, rallying and other forms of automotive
competition. It is among the most successful competition cars ever. In the
mid 1970s, normally aspirated 911 Carrera RSRs won major world championship
sports car races such as Targa Florio, Daytona, Sebring and Nürburgring,
even against prototypes. The 911-derived 935 turbo also won the coveted 24 Hours of Le Mans in
In the 1999 international poll for the award of Car of the Century, the 911
came fifth. It is the one of two in the top five that had remained
continuously in production (the original Beetle remained in production
until 2003), and was until 1998 the most successful surviving application
of the air- (now water-) cooled opposed rear engine layout pioneered by its
original ancestor, the Volkswagen Beetle. It is one of the oldest sports
coupe nameplates still in production.
