After waiting for the rain to stop, the car hiding in a humble corner of the parking lot finally revealed itself—and stole the show. Brian Bergeron’s custom 1987 Porsche 944 is one of four of its kind in the world and is completely redesigned for racing. Brian is a carpenter and car enthusiast who designed, built, and installed the wide-body kit (and everything else on the car) himself. He also placed a 570 horsepower Chevy V8 under the hood and lightened the car to ensure its performance matched its looks. No wonder it had no problem catching up with the competition!
