Spied: The Porsche Tractor

Andreas sends us spy shots of cars and trucks, but this time he's uncovered a very special lawn tractor that probably doesn't have a place in the Porsche museum--though it wears the livery of Porsche's iconic 911.

The crazy lawn tractor here started life as a Partner machine, with 14.5 horsepower and a hydrostatic transmission. A buddy of our spy shooter took the tractor apart completely, and then got obsessed. Every nut and bolt was painted yellow; a new stainless-steel exhaust was fabricated; and a rev counter made from an old 911 oil filter was installed, along with a fire extinguisher.

After putting it all back together, the proud Porschephile shot it all with classic Grand-Prix Weiss (white) with Indischrot (red) details and wheels. Undoubtedly, it's more fun to work in the garden than on a track--but who knows? Maybe we'll see this one in the U.S. Lawnmower Championships one day.

  1. It might not be quite the engineering perfection that is Porsche 911 but he's done a very fine job on it!

    Bad stuff?

  2. While this one may not be a true Porsche tractor, believe it or not, you will see other tractors in the Porsche museum. Porsche manufactured a number of different diesel tractors over quite a few decades. While out of manufacture now, they are quite collectible and there is even an ownership club and registry.
