Some sounds are inherently sexy, and the snarl of this 1990 Porsche 964 Hot Rod is one of them.
The latest video from Petrolicious profiles the car and its owner, automotive photographer Alexander Bermudez. The white coupe roars its way through a series of misty canyon roads as Bermudez discusses the car he has lovingly dubbed “The Growler.”
Despite initial misgivings, Bermudez purchased the Porsche from a friend and has never looked back. The Growler’s massaged motor, lighter weight, and other performance modifications make it barely road-legal, and all the better for it.
“The Growler is a pretty interesting blend,” Bermudez says. “It’s not too raw, but when you need it to give you the feedback that you would typically get from a raw car, it gives it to you—and gives it to you in spades.”
