But it looks kind of cool.
Pretty much all of the important aspects of the auto industry have ground to a halt because of the coronavirus outbreak. Some dealerships have remained open, pivoting towards online sales, but the manufacturing side of the business remains at a standstill, meaning car designers are sitting at home with little to do. But at FCA, creative minds got to work, and head designers created a challenge for fans to submit their interpretation what a future Ram pickup truck would look like. And to get contestants inspired, a modern version of the Dodge Rampage pickup truck was rendered.
And other designers in the auto industry clearly took notice.
While not technically an entrant into the competition - it's clearly not a truck - an exterior designer from Kia Motors Europe named Marcell Sebestyen did come up with a clever, Mopar-inspired rendering. What you see here is a mashup between a Porsche 911 and a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Daytona Edition. It's completely strange but we kind of love it.
Sebestyen calls his creation the 911 Nurburg.
"The wing madness continues... What would be the German equivalent of the Daytona wing? Was wondering how it would look on the 911, of course as a tribute to their latest record on the Nürburgring," he said on his Instagram page. We assume Sebestyen is referring to the record-breaking Nurburgring time of 5:19:55 set in a Porsche 919 Evo by Timo Bernhard back in 2018.
The 911 Nurburg is actually the latest in a lineup Charger Daytona-inspired renderings created by Sebestyen. He previously imaged what a C3 Chevrolet Corvette would look like wearing the Daytona's massive rear wing.
Porsche has worked with outside manufacturers in the past, like when it helped developed the Audi RS2, but we can pretty much guarantee that a Porsche-Dodge partnership would never happen in real life. We still love Sebestyen's awesome interpretation and can only imagine what a Hellcat-powered 911 would feel like to drive. Brave tuners have managed to cram an LS V8 into a 911 in the past, so perhaps it is only a matter of time before someone turns the 911 Nurburg into a reality.
