Youtube user 19Bozzy92 first saw this Porsche Powered T1 VW bus during a charity event at Monza. Fortunately, for us, he was able to speak with the owner and shoot video of it hanging with supercars all while it ferried passengers around the track at warp speed.
The Swiss owner of this Porsche powered bus, Fred Bernhard, spent five years on his build. Starting with a T3 bodied VW he kept the chassis and swapped in a T1 split screen body that he widened by 21cm. He then, logically in our minds, decided to power it using a 3.6 liter 993 Turbo engine that’s been tuned to produce 530 hp and 558 lb.-ft. of torque. Of course, he didn’t stop there. The chassis, suspension and braking all were upgraded to handle the additional power. Lastly, because it’s a “bus” he dropped in 3 extra seats (now it can carry a total of four including the driver) so that he can share the experience of hanging with modern supercars with his friends. Watch the video above and note how he stays right up there with a number of more powerful and modern cars.
