Back in July we were the first to bring you the stop motion video featuring a Porsche Carrera 3.2 teardown that took the Porsche world by storm. Later that same month we talked with the producers of that video to learn how it was made and found out a sequel would be coming. Today, we're happy to say that sequel is well on its way to being completed and we have the trailer of it for you.
Watch The Video
According to Mathias Hoeing, one of the key people behind these videos, they are progressing on the sequel, although at a pretty slow pace. He says, "this is a side project for everyone involved, so everyone's business comes first and then the stars need to align, and, and, and,..."
If you watched the video above, and have a keen Porsche eye, you might have noticed that this new video features a different motor. In the first video, we watched as a 3.2 liter motor was torn down. The trailer above shows us a 3.0 getting built up to become a 3.8 liter motor. Matthias believes this is a project that hasn't been completed before. He said, "The idea behind this build is to have a big displacement engine that doesn't look like one. You know, usually you can easily tell a 3.6/3.8 engine because of certain features that came with the M64 engine family in the 964 and this will never make it "look at home" in an earlier car."
Makes sense to us and just reinforces the detail we know that comes out of Matthias' shop. Stay tuned, we'll have the full video for you as soon as it's available.
