  2. Years ago, my wife and I got SMOKED by an orange Kombi heading up the big hill just outside of Batemans Bay. It passed us like we we were standing still, and it sounded most un-Kombi-like.

    A couple of years later I saw an orange Kombi for sale in "Unique Cars" and it looked vaguely familiar. Amongst the features listed was a 253ci Holden V8 engine mated to a Porsche transaxle, mounted within the wheelbase.

    Mmmm, no wonder he passed us going UPHILL!!!
  3. Oh hells yes.

    I'm a bit of a Kombi nut. Had one for over 5 years now.

    The Race Taxi is amazing. They took the drivetrain from a wrecked Porsche, then widened the shell of a splittie to fit over the Porsche subframe.

    It really is just a Porsche 911 with a VW shell.

    So cool!
