Porsche Designs a Really Fast Boat

Porsche isn't content to simply design some of the fastest cars on the road, they are now looking to sell really fast water vehicles too with a new line of boats. Then at a starting price of $300,000 they are more appropriately called yachts.

The boat is called the Fearless Yacht and is a 28 foot long ship powered by a 525-horsepower Viper engine and it is capable of speeds of up to 88 mph. Porsche also has plans to build models of up to 150 feet long.The only part of this whole thing that I find weird is the fact that a Porsche boat uses a Viper engine and one can only assume they mean Dodge Viper based on the specs. I would expect a boat designed by Porsche to use a twin-turbo Porsche engine out of a 911 turbo. Story and image via Sci Fi Tech.
