the perfect car: a porsche citroen 911 DS by brandpowder

upon first inspection, ‘the perfect car’ by visual communication studio brandpowder might seem almost too good to be true. the american design group has combined a porsche 911 and a citroen DS – two of the most renown classic vehicles ever produced – into a fully convincing photoshopped rendition (even I was fooled) of the four-door sportscar. led by stewart johnson, the german-french concept would be fitted with a turbocharged 260 horsepower engine in the rear bonnet of the 1955 DS. under the hood, its original air cooling system would ideally be replaced with a forced water cooling pipeline, and an enlarged set of tires and rigid chassis would be incorporated to provide the 911 DS with stability at higher-speeds.
the front view of 911DS looks just like the original 911
seen from behind, the 911DS looks rather inconspicuous – a turbocharged 3000 cc, 260hp would rest under the hood
