For the fine folks at Luftgekühlt the idiom ‘cooler heads prevail’ is one to live by. Being purveyors of air-cooled Porsche classics, they pride themselves in their ability to turn out amazing and capable vehicles like this second edition rally-ready German coupe.

Given the moniker Luftauto 002, this all-terrain hog started off its humble life as a 1987 Porsche 911 3.2 Carrera. With help from Joey Seely of E-Motion Engineering in Newport Beach, a Rothsport built 3.2-liter powerhouse was bolted to a G50 gearbox to ensure plenty of muscle would be available on or off the pavement. Oversized KW coilovers perk up the stance of this Carrera and smooth out the ride for a set of meaty treaded, rally-ready Pirelli rubbers. Fully caged internally, armored with robust baja style bumpers, and topped with a custom built roof rack, this is one unique race car that is poised to excel no matter the topography of the course.
