I’ve recently completed FF005. Here are a few photos of the build. The car was picked up by its new owner and driven 1,465 Miles in under 56 Hours back to New York!

FF006-RS and FF007 The Gullwing Coupe are both underway so stay tuned for more!


I am nearing the completion of my latest work, FF004. This project was very special in that I was able to utilize an original Ray Litz built 356 engine, LSD Getrag 4 Speed Transaxle and Pre A Brakes for mechanicals.

As you can see I gave the car a very unique but functional design cue with the “Suicide” doors. The influence came from the Heini Sauter Porsche special built in 1952. The idea was for “Ease of entrance and exit at rally checkpoints.”

I recently invested in a commercial grade polishing system. This is what restorers of vintage warbird airplanes use for a mirror finish. As you can see in the photos it is working well, and this is not the final polish!

The final numbers on this build should put it at about 1130LBS with 115HP. To find out more about build options email CRunge@TheMotoringJournal.com


“The Silencer” Wheel

Inspired by the Glockler and Petermax Muller special racers I recently customized a set of early VW Smoothie wheels with a drilled out hole pattern for weight reduction and added style. These wheels will be featured on the coming FF004 but here’s a quick glance at the outcome.

I went with a semi gloss black finish to accent the Porsche Pre A Drums being used on FF004.

The “R1” Concept

The “R1” is a design I first sketched out in 1999. The R1 has been designed on the platform of Porsche 911 mechanicals with the RUNGE tubular mid engine chassis.

The R1 has a 91″ Wheel base, sports a mid-engine 911 Porsche powerplant, tubular mild steel/monocoque chassis with 911 Steering rack and braking. Engine output runs 280HP with an estimated weight of 1350LBS.

The body is to be finished in either painted or raw Aluminum with Matte finished accents done to the customers color choice. The design calls for full leather interior with aluminum trim. The “R1” Is available for commissioned build now. Be the first to own the R1.
