Who In Their Right Mind Puts A Porsche Engine Into A Dune Buggy?

Don't ask why. Instead ask, why not?

You'd need to have a pretty big pair of cajones to pilot this custom dune buggy. What makes driving this buggy so dicey is its engine. You see, this dune buggy is powered by an engine that used to sit in a 1971 Porsche 911T. The six-cylinder 2.4-liter engine was good for 130 horsepower. That's on the low end for sure, the 911T was the tamest model, but how much power do you need to move a vehicle with a curb weight lower than 1,000 pounds? Not very much.

Like all good things this Porsche-powered buggy is for sale on eBay. If you want to get your hands on this sand-killer/possible death trap you'll only need to fork over $14,000. Of course you could put that money toward buying an actual '71 911T, but really, which would be more fun to drive?
