Naked Porsche and Donuts

Youth car culture advocate, Casey Putsch is at it again. As part of the Lykan Hypersport Genius Garage is building, our hero has some fun with the donor car


Casey Putsch strips down the 2007 Porsche Boxster S to use for the Fast and the Furious Live Lykan Hypersport build. He weighs the car before and after to see the car lost over 700 pounds. Casey then proceeds to find out first hand how exciting the performance is after the car becomes hyper light weight!

Lykan HyperSport

The Lykan Hypersport is a very rare $3.5 Million car, right? Yes. Genius Garage has one? Yes. There is a whole story behind that as well. The Boxster will donate the mechanicals — after planned twin-turbocharging — for the Hypercar. How Genius Garage acquired such a piece is a story in and of itself. A story that Casey told to Vin-Wiki over a year ago.

We look forward to what the college student team at the educational 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit will do with this. According to Putsch, “I plan on testing the car at Mid-Ohio in June.” The build, as well as the car, will go fast — and will be documented along the way.
