Bisimoto Hyundai Powered Porsche 911

Bisimoto has made quite a name for themselves over the past few years in the US. The company has been known for their freakishly powerful creations. To name a few, they’ve created a few 1000 plus horsepower cars like a 70s Porsche 911, and a Honda Odyssey which packs ample amounts of power to tow around the kids and grab groceries. Not only does Bisimoto create gut punching powerful cars, they also do it with unconventional platforms. So dabbling in the untouched territory isn’t something new for the company.

Now they are prepared to work on another Porsche project, but it will sure ruffle a few feathers now that they released a statement that the car will be powered by a Hyundai powerplant. You heard that right, the company is ripping the legendary Porsche drivetrain out of the car and dumping in the heart of a Hyundai. Well, it isn’t just any engine, it’s their V6. As odd as this combination sounds, I must admit it sounds like another mad scientist creation about to happen. Lets just say we don’t expect the power output to be any where near stock and it should be something quite wild when its done.


Hyundai SEMA 2013 Booth Tour

In a booth packed with a bunch of brightly painted vehicles like the highlighter Hylighter yellow Veloster turbo or the mint green Fox Marketing turbo Veloster in the booth, you’d think it be hard to have a single vehicle stand out as the star but of course you’d be wrong.

Hyundai was showing off a turbo Genesis built by Bisimoto Engineering that had one stand out feature on the spec sheet, 1029 horsepower. I think I have used the word “beast” to describe many cars at SEMA but I think this one truly earns it! While typically the turbo 2.0L is the powerplant of choice for tuners, Bisimoto opted to go start with the 3.8L N/A motor. Throw in some Arias forged pistons, Golden Eagle sleeves, a beefier Magnafuel fuel pump, ARP studs, a custom built air-to-air intercooler based on spearco cores and a ton of other parts and I guess what comes out is over 1000 horsepower! :)
