Yes, they built a couple of them back in 1988. Tempest Marine on 188th Street in N. Miami Beach(now called Aventura) built them and installed twin aluminum Porsch V-8's out of the 928 model car of the time. Contact Mike Nicholson of Geographics in Canada for more detailed information. He rigged them for Tempest. Someone must have re-titled the one for sale some how. Ed

A couple of those were presented at European boat shows in early 90s, under the name Kineo-Porsche. If you ask me, they would have been better-off by dropping two Merc small blocks in instead of those 928 motors. Apparently, 928s ran pretty well but the cost was just over the top, you could have bought two 502s for what one Porsche motor cost. And yes, I think the guy is nuts. A while ago, I saw one for sale and it was approx. 60K. And even that was too much...
