CC Outtake: VW Westfalia Inspired by Porsche

1 Van

“What is the ultimate Volkswagen van?” is a question that should inspire debate.  A flower-power-painted hippy bus would be the answer to some.  A Samba tour bus with its many windows and giant sunroof would the answer to others.  A Westfalia camper should be in the conversation, and this one spotted in Stockholm makes a strong case for them.  Painted in Porsche Signal Yellow from the early 1970’s, lowered, and shod with Fuchs alloy wheels, it is a Porsche-inspired restoration that may or may not also have drivetrain enhancements, like the Samba with a 911 3.6 liter flat six and Fuchs wheels owned by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.  It makes a stylish camper, and one hopes that it goes surprisingly quickly around a racetrack as well.
