you don't know...MSDS was established in 1976. Martin Schneider,
unable to find high quality, specialized products, Martin Designed
his own Systems that met his high standards.
Martin Schneider Design Systems or simply MSDS, manufactured a turbo
system (914) as their first product. This power upgrade put the
under powered 914 ahead of the 911 in performance tests. Since then
there have been 1,000's of exhaust, intake and specialty products
developed and sold by MSDS.
Martin is schooled in tool manufacturing, industrial occupations
automotive, industrial and graphic design , and business marketing.
He and his skilled staff of craftsmen build some of the highest
quality automotive upgrade products...from the trick slammed sport
compacts, to the hottest six-figure European cars !
To mark the 25th anniversary of the 914, Martin constructed a stunning
9146-GT. This vehicle was a total "No cost spared project"
and featured a twin turbo, 3.2 litre, horizontal fan engine. The
cover of "European Car" November, 1995, was adorned with
this Porsche mid-engine roadster getting some boost.
Around the year 2002, Porsche will introduce its new S.U.V. It will
be a Porsche powered, VW frame and possibly VW body work vehicle...Sensational
In 1990, some 12 years pre- dating Porsche, MSDS introduced its
own S.U.V. the "Range Panzer". This 4WD,911 / 3.2 litre
powered Vanagon (go anywhere) Syncro , was featured in "European
Car" magazine, December, 1991. In 1998, MSDS went full tilt
with the introduction of its German8ter. This one-ton rated, six
passenger, 400HP small block Chevy powered, VW DoubleCab Transporter
is Martin's answer to the boring pick-up trucks on the market today.
The German8ter is featured in "Hot VWs" magazine August,1998
issue.MSDS is not saying "We've been there...and done that",
but actually putting these highly engineered products into the hands
of the motoring public years ahead of the "multi-billion-dollared"
OE Manufacturers such as VW and Porsche. Ask any one of our MSDS
Panzer pilots and they will bend your ears on the virtues of the
Vanagon-Porsche S.U.V. ! So if you're considering an intake, exhaust,
specialty product or a Vanagon power conversion, step up to a completely
designed system...otherwise known as MSDS.
