Porsche's 935 was the racing version of what was then the fastest accelerating road car. Predictably there were those who wanted a 935 to drive on the road and one of those people was racing sponsor Mansour Ojjeh.

Daimler Ferret Scout Car

I think the Daimler Ferret scout car was quite probably the inspiration for the Daleks of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. A Dalek is a robotic looking creature that moves around shouting "exterminate" in a chilling radiophonic voice. The Daimler Ferret looks as if it could be a mobile robotic vehicle from ...
