Freak Owner Jammed A Mustang 5.0-Liter V8 Into A Porsche Cayman

It turns out a rolling freak show can be pretty damned fast.

The first known head transplant to take place in human history is being scheduled to take place somewhere outside of the US and EU in 2017. The procedure is already mired in controversy for obvious reasons, but for now that hasn’t stopped a handful of scientists from pushing forward in hopes that they can improve some lives if everything goes right. Now that you’re all good and creeped out, it’s time to shift our attention to this 2006 Porsche Cayman in Gulf Livery.

On paper, the cars sounds great, but that didn’t stop the owner from blowing the engine the first time he took it out for a race. Not wanting to let the unfortunate event deter him from an epic car, the owner decided to take things a step or two further by implanting a new engine into the Porsche’s rear end.

You thought it was bad enough that Porsche places its engines in the least optimal spot in the car, but wait until you see what happens when that smaller and lighter engine is replaced by a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 straight from a Ford Mustang. With 425 horsepower making it out the wheels to motivate 3,500 pounds of mass, this Porsche is no laughing matter. Matt Farah makes sure of that by whipping it around the mountainous roads at blistering speeds, showing us both how well the Porsche’s electric steering and tuned chassis is at controlling the beast and how natural the setup feels despite defying all logic.
