It was in 1985 that BMW decided to make a return to IMSA Grand Touring Prototype racing, otherwise known as the GTP series. After a single race with the aesthetically atrocious March 85G-7 to cap off Daytona and the ’85 season, BMW enlisted the help of March Engineering to build a set of ’86 season winners – the March 86G. The cars possessed what it took to become some of the best in GTP history – immense power, a featherweight chassis, and strong handling.
This week’s wallpaper showcases Andy Reimann’s gorgeous Porsche 964. His P-car sits on the latest wheels from Rotiform: The SCR. It harks to the classic Porsche winter wheel, improving upon the design by refining the shapes and lines that comprise it, as well as transforming it into a 3-piece beauty. Andy’s car was one we couldn’t ignore at Played Out, and by request, we’ve provided his car in high-resolution. We’re eager to share more.
In the latest episode of Tuerck’d, Ryan lives out every drifter’s summer dream. Friend and Nitto driver Matt Powers join in the fun for cliff jumping and serious hooning at the Tuerck compound. The two join up with Mike Essa and their trio of Formula Drift cars to take on the sweepers of the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
With the mention of BBQ and Rally cars, it wasn’t long before I was headed up the 405 on my way to LA. The guys at Hoonigan and Fifteen52 recently moved into a new shop space to house the builds and contain a bit of their automotive tomfoolery. Recently dubbed ‘The Donut Shop’, the warehouse sits amidst the asphalt grid of Los Angeles’s industrial landscape and its concrete yard already shines with layers of tire residue.
There’s no ignoring the impression left by an outstanding build. Cars of a certain caliber will speak to anyone with even a bit of oil running through their veins. However, often times more important than the car is the person behind it – commemorating and celebrating craftsmanship, skill, thought, and imagination are something StanceWorks has always stuck to.
