Yeah.... the design looks good. But, the interiors in this car looks very plain and ordinary.

A real nice attempt. Like shravan mentioned, the interiors arent upto the markt, but when u got just a chisel and hammer to carve ur dashboard out of, rather than sophisticated machines, it is as good as Maruti dashboard, which anyone can live with.... since it isn't a San Storm...lol.

Good execution overall. Way better than many Indian firms. My only other serious grouse is that this one is a high rider and gives the game away.... literally!!!

I refuse to post any comments on this topic. Porsches make me post from the bottom of my heart, this one on the other hand clogged all my important blood vessels, namely, the Superior and Inferior Vena Cava and the Aorta. Why couldn't he just get himself a scaled 1:18 model or something. Darn.

u have to admire the guys work

look at the panels really good.. all he needs to do is sort out the suspension & get some better rims ... once lowered ( & oh yes getting rid of those hideous 'bumps' on the bonnet!) & rimmed out the car look look really cool...
am sure the interiors can be sorted out, but its still a good attempt , he's even made the central tunnel just like the original car

A really commendable effort & appreciate the time & money he must have spent in doing it. But it just looks ridiculous with those bumps on the bonnet. Maybe they were for symmetry
Oh what the hell...it looks crap !
