It may look lie a classic 70s or 80s Porsche 911, but the Singer 911 takes an early 90s 911, wraps it in carbon fiber body parts, spices it up with a max. 3.9L, 425hp engine, and many more upgrades.

Road House (Blu-ray)

It could be the best worst movie ever made – loaded with epic bar brawls, cheesy dialog and all the Swayze you can handle. We can’t decide if the Double Deuce would look better on VHS, though.
