While not the original ‘Yoshida Special’ Midnight Club Blackbird. This 930 was originally built up for the live action movie of Wangan Midnight in 1991. It was the director’s personal 930 Turbo.

The car was built up to 400hp for the movie, and when finished, it was found to be too hard to drive. So it changed hands. Then things got ridiculous…

Tubular frame, 3.8L engine from a 993 TurboS, sequential transmission, moulded RWB fenders with Auto Garage TBK bodykit…and a turbo from Aryton Senna’s winning Mclaren MP4/4 F1 car.

Apparently it rarely roams the Shuto Expressway anymore, though is said to occasionally make an appearance at the circuits of Japan.

There were- however- rumours that the owner had goals of hitting 400kph on the expressway over the next few years.

10 years ago, I started working on the first version of my current webcomic Carciphona, titled “Blackbird” back then. I did it all for myself and for fun, knowing there is no way the quality of my work could amount to anything important. Little would I know that 10 years later the story would take such a drastic turn, and that I would receive the support I have now in order to continue drawing, and even printing, this story.

Thank you all so much for helping me get to where I am right now! Carciphona is one of the dearest things to my heart, regardless of its success, and I am lucky to have your support to be able to continue to work on it. We’ve come so far together, and I can’t wait to show you all the things that are to come!
