Porsche 914 Endurance Racing


Quote:
“We used an old 912 front bumper and turned it upside down. A bit of trimming, bending and “persuasion” made it fit to form the front of the car. We then used an old aftermarket 911 fiberglass front bumper to form the bottom half. The tops of the fenders were formed by using parts of fenders from old 924 Porsches. All Porsche parts, just not intended to be used on a 914. The rudders were formed from electrical conduit and sheeted with 20 gauge metal. The rear deck is the old rear lid turned upside down.”

The Ghost military watercraft is the world's first supercavitating vessel




USA: Juliet Marine Systems Announces Plans to Select Weapons Integrator for GHOST >> Naval Today

Quote:
GHOST has been compared to an attack helicopter on the water. It uses supercavitation technology and high-performance jet engines to achieve hull friction reduction and high speed. Its large fuel capacity allows for long duration missions and its heavy weapons payload capacity ensures it can be weaponized to meet any threat.
............and it looks F'n cool baby!

Quote:
Supercavitation -- creating a bubble of air around a body in the water -- can reduce hull friction drag by up to 900%, says JMS, increasing speed and reducing fuel consumption. A key to the Ghost design, the company says, is the ability to generate enough gas to create a boundary layer around the propulsion pods without taking power away from the propulsion system.
