Porsche Design is joining forces with custom yacht builder Fearless, based in Miami, to build two different yachts, one of which is shown above. This boat is 28 feet long and is powered by the same V-10 engine that sits in the Dodge Viper. That means there will be over 500 horsepower going to the propellers. Perhaps theyíll tune it like the new 600 hp Dodge Viper. Cost comes out to $300,000, less than the price of three 911 Turbos. And yes, this may be the only time you see the words Porsche and Dodge Viper in the same blog post.
scared ya there, didn't I?!

Actually it's a Porsche-designed boat, powered by a Viper motor.

Years ago I saw a Ferrari Testa Rossa with a Ford V-6 as its powerplant for sale.

That's not actually the group that designs Porsche cars, just a subsidiary that whores out the Porsche name. Rather successfully. More likely to see the name Porsche Designs in an upscale mall, than a dealer lot.

500 hp really isn't a whole lot for a 28 footer. It sure looks fast though.

No, it was an actual Ferrari with a Ford V-6, at least that's what the sign on the window said ("For sale" on side of road, basic specs with "Ford V-6" listed amongst them). It was cheap but I don't remember how much.

The boat looks like an electric shaver - the most awesome electric shaver ever made.
