    1996 993 GT2 built for drfiting

    I saw featuringabout a Japanese car builder located in Southern California (Jon Kanada, JI Magic, with many years of racing and tuning)transforming a 1996 993 GT2 into a formula drifting car. Modifications include full custom suspension, engine modification incluing 6 individual throttle bodies and triple turbos etc, producing 600 HP before dyno tuning. Other modifications include custom tires, nitrogen body jack and racing style centerlocking wheels. Hankook tire was the main sponsor.

    I saw it last night on TV. It look pretty cool.

    here you go, pretty impressive if rather pointless

    Indeed, rather pointless, but this does not seem to be a teen showoff. In the first part of the clip this guy shows that he seems to know what he's doing. Indeed quite impressive.

    I never really see the point of drifting...

    Re: 1996 993 GT2 built for drfiting

    There is non but in a car like this at that speed it does take lots of car control to execute seamless drifts such as those. Again though, it's pointless.

    Re: 1996 993 GT2 built for drfiting

    For those of you on rennteam who are skiers, you will know just what I'm referring to when I say that drifting in a car is akin to powder skiing. There is a sense of flow in powder snow completely dissimilar to hardpack snow skiing. In a car when one is drifting, there is a visceral experience of moving the car across the pavement as the rubber from the tires breaks friction as opposed to full traction when the tires are merely rolling.

    Re: 1996 993 GT2 built for drfiting

    Well I wouldn't compare it to skiing then...Snowboarding in some back country powder, now that would be like drifting!


    Re: 1996 993 GT2 built for drfiting

    The rear-engined Porsche models are definately not the easiest cars for drifting. It shouldn't be a surprise that front-engined, rear wheel driven cars like the BMW M models are the most convenient for this task.
